Description

Details

Sonic Tuning is proud to offer you the newest design from forgestar, the CF5 Flow Formed Wheel. Being a flow formed wheel allows the Forgestar CF5 to be extremely durable, while weighing up to 15% less than a cast wheel, without the price tag of a fully forged wheel. Flow form casting is a production method that turns the wheel over a special mandrel and three hydraulic rollers using tremendous pressure. The pressure and turning then forces 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. Pressure applied to the wheel actually changes its mechanical properties, so its strength and impact values become similar to those of a forged rim.

Please note the Forgestar CF5 Wheels will require cone seat lug bolts so that the wheels sit properly on the hub. We can provide these for you (see attributes). The price above is for a set of 4 Forgestar CF5 Wheels!

  • Fits nearly any vehicle!
  • Wheels are made to order
  • BMW caps available
  • Rotary Forged Flow Formed Barrel
  • Great range of offsets
  • Same Technology Used on Formula 1 and Indy Cars

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 on both 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 or fender modifications.
     
  • Weight - Forgestar wheels are much lighter than cast wheels. The 18x8.5 Forgestar CF5 wheel weighs an amazingly light 19.95 lbs, where a cast wheel of this same size would weigh anywhere from 24-26 lbs. This is a saving of roughly 5-7 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 27 lbs with Forgestar wheels you would be saving 180 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. The Forgestar CF5 is rated at 1520 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).

What you need to know about the Flow-Forming Procedure

Forgestar's flowforming process is a unique solution to a common problem – how to make a wheel both light and strong. This specialized process begins with a low pressure type of casting and uses a special machine that spins the initial casting, heats the outer portion of the casting and then uses steel rollers pressed against the rim area to pull the rim to its final width and shape. The combination of the heat, pressure and spinning create a rim area with the strength similar to a forged wheel. During Flow Forming, the 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. The resulting grain structure within the alloy of the wheel is linear, flowing in a single direction.
This grain structure pattern, combined with the exceptional quality of casting required for the process, gives the rim area of the wheel huge mechanical strength, and elongation. As a result of these mechanical characteristics, Forgestar is able to reduce the thickness of the rim area resulting in reduced weight, without compromising strength and resistance to impact.

So in a nutshell, the process makes the wheels:

  • Almost as strong as forged wheels
  • Lighter than cast wheels
  • Customizable to a range of offsets and bolt patterns
  • A great value for the price
