DAYTON, Ohio – Forgeline has expanded their Carbon+Forged wheel line to include the new CF203, CF204 and CF205 wheels. The carbon fiber and forged aluminum ultra-high performance wheels join the original two designs, CF201 and CF202.
The CF203 and CF204 debuted in November. Forgeline unveiled the CF205 at the 2017 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show in December. The CF205 uses the Competition Open Lug option and features 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 product line and the lightest wheel Forgeline offers in the diameters of 19-, 20- and 21-inches.
Forgeline’s CF203 wheel combines weight-optimized CNC-machined forged aluminum center with their proprietary carbon fiber barrel. Cutting-edge styling and a unique precision-machined forged 6061-T6 aluminum center with 10 asymmetric I-beamed Y-spokes grouped together in opposing pairs creates a striking design. Special engineering and machining deep into the edge of the mounting pad allow the spokes to connect deep into the center. The spokes also extend beyond the rim register to reach out over the step of the carbon fiber barrel. Available in 19-, 20- and 21-inch fitments, the CF203 is engineered for modern exotic sport and luxury cars including the Corvette Z06, Ferrari 458/488, Audi R8, Acura NSX, Lamborghini Huracan/Aventedor, Porsche 918/GT3/GT3RS, as well as Aston Martin, McLaren, Mercedes, and BMW models, among others.
The CF204 wheels feature a lightweight racing-inspired five V-spoke forged aluminum center design to yield a wheel with impressive performance metrics: 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.
“The incredible response to the original Carbon+Forged wheels, the CF201 and CF202, which we debuted at the SEMA Show last year, inspired us to design the CF203, CF204 and CF205. At Forgeline, we strive to provide the ultimate in style and performance, and the Carbon+Forged line does that and more for those vehicle owners of means who want to truly stand out,” said Dave Schardt, President of Foregline Motorsports.
Carbon+Forged wheels consist of a two-piece carbon fiber rim and a forged aluminum center to result in a super light, ultra-high performance wheel. Known for their unyielding commitment to technology and performance innovation, Forgeline continues to break the mold with the new Carbon+Forged styles. With a weight that is 42 percent lighter than its aluminum equivalent, these wheels 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 automotive industry lab results prove Forgeline’s Carbon+Forged wheels are incredibly strong and 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.
The new additions to the Carbon+Forged wheels series and other Forgeline wheels are available through a nationwide network of Forgeline partners.
