Light weight Forged Rims?
 
Anyone know of a few companies that provide light weight forged rims?
I'm looking for a 20" that is sub 30lbs and but prefer closer to 20lbs.

Pls advise of companies that provide this......to reach out to them

Thanks in advance :smileup:

UNBROKEN will lead you in the right direction but they will cost an arm and a leg.

The company he went with, Ill be reaching out to as well.
But yea, I know they are a pretty penny, but I have have purchased quite a few sets for my cars in the past.
They are about $1000K per wheel on avg. Some being more :smileup:
But I want light wheels..... 20lbs mark
These 45lbs wheels are not cutting it

By nature, forged aluminum wheels are lighter and stronger than your normal cast aluminum wheels. That used to be Centerlines big selling point with their forged line of wheels. Weld Racing wheels used to be forged, but I'm not sure if they are anymore. Apparantly Weld Racing was either sold or went bankrupt but they are now under new ownership. American Force Wheels are currently very popular.

I called American force wheel and the guy there who picked up said that the wheel (I wanted....Justice) was 39 lbs
That is no way light for a forge. That's the weight of cast
Unless he was an idiot and wanted to scare me the other way.
I will call them again tomorrow as I really liked that rim
If its close to the low 20's for a 20" rim, i may be going that route.
