**********s| FORGESTAR 18" FINALLY RELEASING INFORMATION!!! 17lb 18" Track Wheel!

**********s.com is proud to introduce the Forgestar F14 Wheel in 18" fitments Available NOW!

Some of you heard the rumors and they are finally here and available. Over the next few days we'll be bringing you actual images on vehicles and hope to get you reviews of customers using it on the track. These are the same wheels we've gotten over to KW for their race car.

The 18" Forgestar F14s weighed in at an amazing light 17.6 Lbs . for the 18x8.5. These wheels are perfect for anyone who drives there vehicle on the street, but also takes there car to the track or autocross. Just like the 19" F14s the 18" allow for custom offsets so that you can decide exactly how you want the wheels to sit and look.

Whether you simply daily drive your BMW or only take it to track days, you can't go wrong with the Forgestar 18" F14s.

[IMG]http://www.**********s.com/images/Products/Forgestar%20Wheels/1885weights.jpg[/IMG]
Available Sizes
  • 18x8.5 offsets from +26 to +50
  • 18x9.0 offsets from +20 to +55
  • 18x9.5 offsets from +26 to +60
  • 18x10.0 offsets from +16 to +42
  • 18x11.0 offsets from +23 to +55
  • 18x12.0 offsets from +36 to +68
Weights
  • 18x8.5 ET48 - 17.6 Lbs.
  • 18x9.5 ET48 - 18.4 Lbs.
  • 18x10 ET42 - 18.2 Lbs.
  • 18x12 ET68 - 20.0 Lbs.
Why Forgestar Wheels are Better Than Cast Wheels
  • Custom Offsets - Forgestar wheels can be made in virtually any offset, whereas standard cast wheels come in a set offset. This allows you to dial in exactly how you want your wheels to sit (we can help you select the offset you need for the look your looking for). Having custom offsets allows for fitment of wider wheels in stock suspension and lowered vehicles. Forgestar wheels are designed specifically for your car and it's suspension setup, where cast wheels are designed for everyone and typically do not take in to account lowered suspension setups.
  • Weight - Forgestar wheels are also much lighter than cast wheels. The 18x8.5 F14 wheel weighs an amazingly light 17.6 lbs, where a cast wheel of this same size would weigh anywhere from 23-27 lbs. This saving of roughly 6-10 pounds per wheel makes a BIG difference in regards to handling and drivability. Reducing unsprung weight (weight that is not supported by the car's suspension, i.e wheels, tires, brake rotors, and brake calipers) is one of the easiest ways to improve your car's handling, braking, and acceleration. As a general estimate 1 pound of unsprung weight is equal to 10 pounds of static weight. (weight that is supported by the vehicle's suspension). By using this ratio if you were to replace your stock wheels that weighed 25 lbs with Forgestar wheels you would be saving 320 lbs. in static weight!
  • Strength - Flow-formed wheels are similar in strength to that of a fully forged wheel, without the cost. The process used to make the Forgestar wheels is the same process BBS wheels uses as well. Forgestar wheels are also rated at 1200 lbs per wheel which is considerably more than a cast wheels which are typically around 1000-1200 lbs. per wheel.
  • Range of Sizes - Forgestar wheels are available in a multitude of sizes, allowing you to decide exactly what diameter and width you want to run on your vehicle, rather being forced to run a set staggered size with cast wheels (As cast wheels usually are only available with one set front wheel width, and one rear wheel width).

Following images are on 19", will populate the thread with images of the 18"
