Forgeline Introduces New Split 5-Spoke Forged ZO1R Racing Wheel

Forgeline Motorsports, the acknowledged leader in rugged, lightweight forged aluminum racing wheels, has released the latest addition to its competition series: the ZO1R. Engineered and designed for sports car racing and dedicated track duty, the new ZO1R carries a 2100 pound load rating while providing an exceptional deflection stiffness to better withstand the rigors of top-level endurance road racing.

The ZO1R features a split five parallel spoke design, machined from a fully-forged, one-piece, 6061-T6 aluminum monoblock. The open lug center configuration reduces mass while providing easier access to lug nuts. A standard aluminum center cap is included with each wheel.

The classic-style wheel has I-beamed spokes, a concave profile and a chamfered outer edge. Forgeline engineered the ZO1R to allow for plenty of caliper clearance. ZO1R wheels can be manufactured in 18, 19, 20 and 21-inch diameters in any color and finish Forgeline offers.  In addition, Forgeline can create the ZO1R to accommodate most five lug and center lock applications, and, depending on diameter, the wheels can be produced in deep, medium or shallow concave profiles.

Forgeline Motorsports produced custom high-strength racing wheels in its facility in Dayton, Ohio.  The company is a world-leader in the manufacture of premium custom made-to-order automotive wheels for specialty vehicle builders, professional racing teams and enthusiast owners of exclusive sports cars and muscle cars. Forgeline has earned its position on some of the world’s premier race cars, including those competing in IMSA, Pirelli World Challenge, Trans Am and virtually every professional road racing series in America.
