DAYTON, Ohio - Forgeline Motorsports, a premium wheel manufacturer known for their lightweight yet strong forged aluminum wheels introduced a new wheel for light truck and SUV applications. The FX1 joins the VX1, CV3C, ST3P and VR3P wheels due to customer demand, bringing the line up to five wheels load rated for light-duty trucks and sport utility vehicles.
Designed specifically for 6-lug truck and SUV applications, the Forgeline FX1 looks exceptionally tough, thanks to a combination of rugged machining details that suggest its off-road capability.
Like nothing Forgeline has designed before, the Forgeline FX1 features a dramatic six spoke design with very strong multi-dimensional precision-machined tapered spokes and aggressive machined relief pockets that surround the thick outer lip. The Forgeline FX1 is a fully-forged one-piece monoblock wheel that utilizes manufacturing technology similar to the company's legendary GA1R and GS1R racing wheels. Beyond the aggressive style, the one-piece monoblock forging and computer-simulated FEA design process yield a wheel that is relatively lightweight, stiff and exceptionally strong. The FX1 is perfect for 6-lug truck applications including the Cadillac Escalade, GMC Yukon, Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition, as well as full-size pickups from Ford, Chevy, Nissan and others.
The FX1 is machined from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum. It is currently available in 20 and 22-inch diameters with a range of widths and offsets. Features of the FX1 include:
* One-piece forged monoblock construction
* Concave profile
* Multi-dimensional six spoke design
* Rugged machining details
* Thick outer lip with aggressive machined relief pockets
* Designed for 6-lug small truck and SUV applications
* Generous brake clearance
* Forged 6061-T6 aluminum
* Includes standard aluminum center cap
* Customizable finish options
* Legendary Forgeline quality and customer service
