Forgeline Expands Its Line Of Carbon+Forged Wheels

Forgeline’s popularity means they’re inundated with regular requests to accommodate their vast base of desiring customers. Specifically, Forgeline have recently been asked to make serious strides towards assisting their clientele who want larger sizes and different bolt patterns with their popular line of Carbon+Forged wheels.

Forgeline’s six Carbon-Forged models are now available in larger sizes catering to the modern exotic crowd.

As you could imagine, the business of expanding a carbon-fiber barrel isn’t simple—not nearly as simple as it is with more conventional materials. Carbon tooling is a very complex process, and as such, it takes a very long time to add new sizes to their lineup. After two years of requests, Forgeline has expanded their CF201, CF202, CF203, CF204, CF205, and CF206 models to nineteen-inch, twenty-inch, and twenty-one-inch sizes, which span from nine to twelve inches in width. The combination of a carbon barrel and a 6061-T6 aluminum center offer very low static mass, very low rotational inertia, minimal deflection, and excellent fatigue strength.

Forgeline’s carbon composition reduces weight by 42% compared to its aluminum equivalent.

Additionally, Forgeline’s responded to the demand from the Viper crowd, who haven’t been able to enjoy the benefits offered by these wheels until now. Now, eager Viper enthusiasts can fit their car with the Carbon+Forged CF206 wheels and enjoy the benefits of reduced unsprung mass. These twelve-spoke wheels are based off of the super-light CF205 but feature a six-lug configuration to suit the Viper. Expect to witness these wheels dotting each corner of Dodge’s quickest track toy in months to come.

Forgeline’s new CF206 wheel is designed specifically for the Dodge Viper.
