The obvious choice was to do just the rim because the inertia affects the wheel the most. — David Schardt, Forgeline
“As far as the aftermarket goes, you would have to make a mold for every, single, different kind of car, so you can’t customize it very much. You don’t want to change the colors and the designs end up being kind of bland,” David Schardt, owner of Forgeline, recently told us.“The obvious choice was to do just the rim because the inertia affects the wheel the most, as that’s the weight on the outermost part of the wheel.”
These two wheels are offered in 20- and 21-inch diameters. The 20×9-inch version only weighs 17 pounds, while the 20×12-inch weighs in at only 18.5 pounds.
“Then we make an aluminum center, like we normally would, that you can customize in any color, style or offset to make that easy. It makes for a very, very light wheel that is still customizable like our others,” he added.
Captured in all their glory in the video above are the two current styles offered by Forgeline — the CF201, which features a five-V-spoke design, and the CF202, which features a directional, split-five-spoke design.
