About Forgestar Wheels
ModBargains is proud to offer you the BRAND NEW FORGESTAR Wheel Lineup with the latest technology in wheel production to bring you the best of both worlds. This brand new lineup utilizes a combination of the best methods of forging and casting methods both in the same wheel. This is called Flow Form Casting, and is used by companies such as BBS and Enkei. These wheels are made to order and can be made to fit your BMW with a large range of offsets.

Flow Form Casting is a production procedure that turns the wheel (or rim section) over a special mandrel and three hydraulic rollers using tremendous pressure. The pressure and turning then force the rim area to form against the mandrel, creating the shape and width of the rim. During Flow Forming, the rim actually "flows" down to create the full rim width. During Flow Forming, pressure applied to the cast rim actually changes its mechanical properties, so its strength and impact values become similar to those of a forged rim. That translates to up to 15% less weight when compared to a standard cast wheel.

Features
  • High Quality 'Flow Form' Production
  • Durability of a Forged Wheel
  • Lightweight and Excellent Value
  • TPMS Compatible
  • Clears OEM Calipers and Aftermarket Big Brake Kits
  • Custom Offsets and bolt patterns
  • Fits nearly any vehicle!
  • Wheels are made to order
  • BMW Caps Available (+$30)


Available Offsets and 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

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).

Can you let me know what would fit on my E46 Coupe? I am willing to buy spacers if needed. I really would like x9s up front and x10s in the back. How much would that be if it fits?

Thanks.

They're are Forgestars spacers are not necessary. Custom offsets allow for us to perfectly dial in flush fitment. As far as price it only goes up through the size of the wheel e.g 18", 19", 20"
