Forgeline has expanded their Carbon+Forged wheel range with three new wheels named CF203, CF204 and CF205. The three new carbon fiber and forged aluminum ultra-high performance wheels will now join the CF201 and CF202 to take the total number of wheels in the range to five.
The CF203 and CF204 had debuted in November while Forgeline unveiled the CF205 at the 2017 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show in December. The CF205 comes with the Competition Open Lug option and has 10 symmetrical I-beam spokes that extend out to the edge of the carbon step lipped barrel. The CF205 is the lightest wheel in the Carbon+Forged range and the lightest wheel Forgeline offers in the diameters of 19-, 20- and 21-inches.
Forgeline’s CF203 wheel comprises a weight-optimized CNC-machined forged aluminum center and the company’s proprietary carbon fiber barrel. The design is quite striking with its unique precision-machined forged 6061-T6 aluminum center and 10 asymmetric I-beamed Y-spokes which are grouped together in opposing pairs creates a striking design. Forgeline has used special engineering and machining deep into the edge of the mounting pad so that the spokes can connect deep into the center. The spokes also extend beyond the rim register to reach out over the step of the carbon fiber barrel. The CF203 is available in 19-, 20- and 21-inch fitments and is meant for exotic sport and luxury cars like the Audi R8, Acura NSX, Corvette Z06, Ferrari 458/488, Lamborghini Huracan/Aventedor, Porsche 918/GT3/GT3RS, as well as models from Aston Martin, McLaren, Mercedes, and BMW.
The CF204 wheels have a lightweight racing-inspired five V-spoke forged aluminum center design. The outcome is a heel that significantly enhances the performance of a wheel, thanks to its very low static mass and very low rotational inertia. Forgeline’s CF204 combines a weight-optimized CNC-machined forged aluminum center with their proprietary carbon fiber barrel to deliver technological advancement, exclusive styling and unparalleled performance.
Commenting on the new wheels, Dave Schardt, President of Foregline Motorsports said that the incredible response to the original Carbon+Forged wheels which made their debut at the SEMA Show inspired Forgeline to design the three new wheels.
Carbon+Forged wheels use a combination of a two-piece carbon fiber rim and a forged aluminum center. The end product is a super light, ultra-high performance wheel. These wheels are 42 percent lighter than their aluminum counterparts and help deliver a significant weight reduction to the wheel’s outer perimeter.
The superior quality carbon fiber barrels are engineered and tested to deliver industry-leading levels of fatigue strength, impact and damage resistance as well as deflection stiffness. Independent tests have proved that Forgeline’s Carbon+Forged wheels are highly robust while exceeding all existing SAE and TUV test specifications and surpassing the AK-LH 08 Radial Impact Test standard. As with all Forgeline wheels, the CF203 and CF204 are available in any finish the company offers.
