SEMA 2012: Hawk Performance Introduces Cast And Forged Wheels
While your first thought of the Hawk Performance line of products doesn’t scream performance wheels, it makes perfect sense. Hawk Performance is no stranger to the aftermarket or OE world. Hawk has been producing high performance motorsports brake pads to the performance street and motorsports markets since 1990. Hawk has also been the official brake pad of SCCA, NASA, Richard Petty Driving Experience, Skip Barber Racing School and Ron Fellows Performance Driving School. When we found out Hawk was now releasing a line of cast and forged wheels for late-model vehicles like the Corvette, Camaro, Mustang and Challenger, we just had to know more.
The new wheels are a great fit for an already Hawk-outfitted vehicle. What better way to show off your Hawk rotors and pads than with a brand new set of Hawk shoes. See, we told you it would make sense. What’s more, depending on your budget and taste, Hawk has a set of wheels in either the cast or forged versions. Plus, each wheel comes in a multitude of designs and sizes. Check out the specs below.
