Forgeline launches new retro wheel designs


Foregline Motorsports  has added three new and retro designs to its array of classic-inspired wheels.

The new styles are:

•  JO3C — A five-spoke wheel inspired by the vintage Chevrolet SS design of the late 1960s and early ‘70s. Originally developed for country singer James Otto’s personal pro-touring Chevelle, JO3C now is offered in 18-, 19- and 20-inch sizes.

•  NT3C — A lightweight, open-lug design inspired by five-spoke designs popularized in the 1980s. Forgeline teamed with Neil Tjin, of Tjin Edition RoadShow, to create the bronze-trimmed wheel for Tjin’s customized Ford Mustang in a Ford Motor Company display.

•  LS3C — A three-piece design that updates Forgeline’s classic LS mesh wheel from the 1990. Foregline said the latest materials, engineering and machining technologies modernize the design while retaining the classic style that was popular on Porsches, BMWs and other European sports cars.

“Forgeline Motorsports created these retro themed styles to provide homage to the classic wheels of the past, utilizing today’s materials and manufacturing that make them lighter and stronger,” said company president David Schardt.  “And with our sizing, color and powder coating capabilities, there are no compromises when it comes to selecting a wheel-and-tire combination.

“You’ll get the right fit and stance.”

That’s exactly what James Otto found when he specified the new wheels for his classic Chevelle.

“Forgeline creates the strongest wheels in the industry, with the most innovative and aesthetically appealing designs,” entertainer James Otto is quoted in the Forgeline news release. “They’ve become the brand of choice among the pro-touring community. I’m really happy with how the new JO3C wheel fits my Chevelle, because it fills out the wheel wells and gives the car just the right stance.”
