FORGELINE Releases New Competition Series Wheel

By Auto News Log • August 26th, 2010

DAYTON, Ohio – After countless years of involvement in the GRAND-AM Rolex Series GT class, FORGELINE has learned what it takes to produce a racing wheel that can withstand the fierce conditions of the sport. This knowledge has been applied to our latest and greatest, simply put – the best wheel we have ever made – the GA3R.

Our new “I-Beamed Spoke” technology reduces weight and applies additional strength in rigidity within the spokes of the wheel. The hidden titanium assembly hardware not only gives it a smooth clean look, but also functions to ease the efforts of cleaning the wheel. In addition, the GA3R features an enlarged open center area for quick and easy lug nut removal, critical for quick pit stops. Another feature of the GA3R is the design of the center allows plenty of room for caliper clearance for that extreme brake fitment. We have also employed a new, proprietary, fast drying, super strength sealer for quick and easy repairs as well as it being highly resistant to leaks. And of course, the GA3R is produced using our traditional forging method utilizing 6061-T6 aluminum with heat-treated rim-shells. Just like any FORGELINE wheel, the GA3R will be fully customizable in fitment and finish, including center-lock applications.

Extremely lightweight and significantly stronger than any wheel we have ever produced, the GA3R is now available for ordering. The release will offer sizes in 18″ and 19″ with virtually any width and offset. 17″ will be available for ordering in late 2010, early 2011. Look for it at a race track near you!
