forgeline-wheels-nitto-tires-unmounted-007Forgeline Motorsports is yet another wheel manufacturer we have signed up at ModBargains that offers some of the best “made to order”, forged lightweight wheels currently on the market.

For the last 20 years Forgeline has been involved in SCCA Pro Racing, World Challenge, and other race series like the American LeMans series as well. Each wheel set will be made to order with standard and optional finish options. Forgeline isn’t new to this forum, so most of you already know the fantastic quality that Forgeline has in each of their wheels.

The Mod Experts recently put together this set of Custom Forgeline Wheels for C7 Corvette, one of the first sets of wheels we’ve put together for a C7 Corvette. This Vette owner was looking for a set of Track fitment wheels, and that happens to be one of the Mod Experts‘ specialties.

For the track we can do a few different fitments on that one like 18×10 all around, 18×10 up front and 18×11 on the rear if you want to stagger it, or 18×11 all around is the most aggressive we would recommend that we’ve done a few times before – this Vette owner went with Forgeline GA1R Wheels for Corvette in matte black, spec’d out at 18×10 and 18×11 front and rear. The offsets are never shared with the public by Forgeline and are specific to each car they’re built for. (Email [email protected] for our recommendations for your setup)

[email protected] can get you track fitments and such upon request or something along those lines.

Let’s take a look at the GA1R Forgeline Open Lug Wheels with the Nitto Tires mounted.forgeline-wheels-nitto-tires-mounted-001 forgeline-wheels-nitto-tires-mounted-002 forgeline-wheels-nitto-tires-mounted-003 forgeline-wheels-nitto-tires-unmounted-005 forgeline-wheels-nitto-tires-unmounted-006

 

The factory wheels aren’t that bad looking, but once we get them on the scales, we’re not sure we like them so much.Forgeline_C7_Corvette_Black_Wheels_Nitto_NT01_275-35-18-305-35-18_-1

The rear wheel weighed even more, the OEM wheel and tire combo tips the scales at a portly 59.4lbs!!
Forgeline_C7_Corvette_Black_Wheels_Nitto_NT01_275-35-18-305-35-18_-6Compare that to a featherweight 46.6LB for the Forgeline GA1R Front Wheel with a 275/30-18 Nitto NT01 Tire mounted.Forgeline_C7_Corvette_Black_Wheels_Nitto_NT01_275-35-18-305-35-18_-14The rear wheels shave an impressive 8lbs over the OEM, the GA1R with a Nitto NT01 in 305/35-18 totals out at just 52lbs – the wider Forgeline rear wheel weighs only 1lb more than the OEM front wheel. That’s some impressive weight savings that can really make the difference at the track.

Let’s take a look at how the Forgeline GA1R wheels look mounted on the C7 Corvette.
