Forgeline Competition WC3R

  • Model: Audi - 5x112
  • Manufactured by: Forgeline Wheels

ForgeLine shares your passion for automobiles. It is that passion that drives them to manufacture the highest quality wheels on the market.

With wheels used in Grand Am, ALMS, SCCA Pro Racing, as well as virtually every amateur sports car series in the United States of America, and being racers themselves, ForgeLine possesses an advantage with the insight as to how to build wheels that will meet today’s extreme demands of sports car racing.

The design characteristics of ForgeLine wheels are comprised of strength and performance using computer stress analysis. The computer model enables them to analyze the design under a simulated load and optimize it before machining begins. Then the finished products are tested beyond SAE standards using real-life racing variables to determining test criteria. ForgeLine centers are created using a 6000 ton hydraulic press - a modernized version of forging proven successful for hundreds of years. The press forges the wheel center into its general shape, which is then CNC machined to create the design style. The forged wheel center also has unnecessary aluminum removed to reduce the weight as much as possible without sacrificing strength. And to optimize further, the use of 6061-T6 aluminum ensures the rim material is lighter and stronger.

Why forged? Forging aligns the grain structure, reduces porosity, and increases uniformity in the material, thereby increasing the strength to weight ratio with consistent results. Forging also allows the use of 6061 material which can be heat treated to be 40% stronger than cast aluminum.

While almost every Forgeline wheel is ready to race, some sizes are not appropriate for track use. That is why we offer the Competition line.

WC3R wheels are aggressively styled and built to perform with true forged 6061 T6 centers, aircraft grade bolts, and feature a standard polished finish with a polished lip.
This design is 3 pounds lighter than the standard 3-piece Forgeline wheels. WC3 wheels are offered in sizes from 18x7 to 18x13. Since each wheel is built to order, Forgeline can offer special features like custom offsets, center locking hubs, and a choice of center finishes.
