Forgeline One Piece Forged Monoblock GA1R Open Lug Cap Edition
Our new one piece forged monoblock GA1R Open Lug Cap Edition wheel bridges the gap between the elegant functionality of pure track performance and day-to-day practicality of all-weather street driving.
Similar to our race-proven GA1R Open Lug wheel, the GA1R Open Lug Cap Edition has significant material machined from the center area for additional weight reduction, improved access to the lugs, and an exaggerated extra-aggressive concave look. But unlike the Competition Series GA1R Open Lug racing wheel (which will NOT accept a center cap), this “Cap Edition” has a redesigned hub center and includes a unique specially-engineered tall center cap (with “Motorsport” engraving) to cover the hub spindle and protect it from the elements.
The GA1R Open Lug Cap Edition is engineered for racing with a 2100 lb. street-tire load rating (per wheel) to ensure strength and integrity, even when subjected to the massive loads encountered on the stickiest race tires.
The GA1R Open Lug Cap Edition is produced using our traditional forging method from 6061-T6 aluminum. It is currently available in 18, 19, 20, and 21-inch sizes with a range of widths and offsets. (Please Note: Depending on size, the GA1R Open Lug may be available in deep, medium, or shallow concave profiles. See sizing chart for details.) And just like any Forgeline wheel, the GA1R Open Lug Cap Edition is available with fully customizable finish options.

Forgeline One Piece Forged Monoblock GT1 5-Lug in Transparent Smoke
Forgeline one piece forged monoblock wheels continue to grow in popularity. And, of course, a new range of applications to meet this growing demand also requires new sizes. But adding new diameters and widths often requires engineering and stocking entirely new sets of forgings.
As of September 2014, we have received our latest shipment of new one piece monoblock forgings that allow us to produce 21 inch diameters in 9.0, 10.0, and 12.0 inch widths. So effective immediately, all Forgeline one piece forged monoblock wheels are now available in 21×9.0, 21×10.0, and 21×12.0 inch sizes.
Forgeline one piece forged monoblock wheels are machined from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum. They are currently available in 18, 19, 20, and 21-inch diameters with a range of widths and offsets. (Depending on size, they may be available in deep, medium, or shallow concave profiles. See sizing chart for details.) And just like any Forgeline wheel, Forgeline one piece forged monoblock wheels are available with fully customizable finish options.

Forgeline Sponsors the Wright “B” Flyer at the 2014 Dayton Concours d’Elegance
Dayton, Ohio is a community known for its progressive spirit that combines innovation and hard work to solve problems both big and small. With a great history of scientific and industrial advancement (circa 1900, Dayton had been granted more patents per capita than any other U.S. city), the residents of Dayton are credited with the invention of many game-changing products, materials, and processes.
Some of the well-known and little-known Dayton inventions include: the airplane, the artificial heart, air conditioning, the cash register, cellophane tape, chrome plating, the digital clock, ethyl (lead) gasoline, the frostproof freezer, gas masks, the ice cube tray, the ink jet printer, laser weapons, the mood ring, push-in pull top cans, radar detectors, ring-pull can openers, safety glass, self-cooled refrigerators, the automotive self-starter, semi-conductor computer memory, space-to-earth photo transmissions, the stepladder, storage batteries, and many others.
And many of these inventions have led to the birth of such iconic Dayton manufacturing legends as: The Wright Airplane Company (founded by the Wright Brothers), National Cash Register (NCR), Delco (later Delphi), Barney & Smith Car Company, Mead (later MeadWestvaco), Reynolds and Reynolds, Standard Register, Frigidaire, Dayton Wire Wheel, Huffy Bicycles, Monarch Marking, and many others.
Now as the 21st century takes off, Forgeline Motorsports is very proud to be part of Dayton’s manufacturing heritage and to leverage Dayton’s culture of innovation and productivity. In our Dayton, Ohio facility, Forgeline manufactures the world’s finest custom-made high-performance lightweight automotive wheels using complex manufacturing techniques, cutting-edge engineering technology, and advanced materials (such as forged 6061 heat-treated aluminum).
To honor this heritage and to celebrate Forgeline’s place among manufacturing legends, Forgeline Motorsports is sponsoring the Wright “B” Flyover at the 2014 Dayton Concours d’Elegance on September 14, 2014 at 12:00 noon. As a gathering already dedicated to honoring yesterday’s great advancements in transportation, the flyover by the Wright “B” Flyer (a replica of the Wright brothers’ first production airplane, the Wright Model B Flyer) is a perfect way to pay tribute to Dayton’s contributions to both transportation and manufacturing. read the entry »
