I had to run a set of my Forgelines up today and was excited to share that David the owner of Forgeline sold his C7 LT1 to get the C7 Z06! I've done more sets of Forgelines on C7s than anyone in the world to date :thumbs: and am happy to continue working with them. While I have the Z06 fenders here to help tuck the 345 drag wheels I need to get 900hp to the ground on my LT1 427, David will be able to get a lot of wheels on the car and pics as well.

I'll have a drag setup on my wide body with 18x6 fronts and 18x12" rears - I just gave them the specs today. I can do these with wider fronts if desired and can send complete with MT 345mm rear tires!


This is the 345mm DR against the M&H 325mm DR I'm running now.


I can also do an 18x10 and 18x12" race setup


Personally, I think this brand new AR1 is going to look really good on the Z06 and I'm really leaning towards that one now on mine.




The new GT3 is pretty hot too for a 3pc




I can do the same size as factory to reuse your OEM tires or we can go eve wider like the Pirelli 375mm rear tires on wheels too like I have on my C7 now with my carbon fiber weapon7 diffuser and spoiler etc which will also have Z06 options (shameless plug lol)




Fun fact too, aside from their unreal aesthetics, their wheels are VERY light weight. I just did a set for a C7 that had 18/19" wheels and we did a 20/21" 3 piece wheel with 325mm rear Pirellis and they were LIGHTER than factory?!


Here are a lot of C7s I've done and a few of David's as well:
































Some rendering fun

Nice looking options Ben. What are the primary dark colors, please, on the second and fourth from the bottom wheels, for they look like a charcoal gray rather than a black?

May I offer a suggestion: when you post new wheel options for the Stingray, do one shot for the direct-on-side view (90 degrees/perpendicular to the side) followed by a close up of the wheel and tire mounted. They will give us a good comparison and help with making choices.

John the second from the bottom if you're talking about the rendering of the yellow C7 is gunmetal which is a very nice looking flat/matte color. Another option to this would be their Titanium.

The fourth from the bottom are a transparent smoke center which is a tinted clear coat over a brushed finish which is beautiful. If you're not looking for the brushed look under, you should also check out Graphite which I love and has a dark gray metallic flake or they also have a midnight silver which is lighter but also a gloss look.

I'm happy to listen to all suggestions but there are 20 different pics there and I only have so much time lol

do you have just rears for the z06 that will accommodate the mt 345's? i would like to change just the rears for better drag race launch. the closer they look to factory, the better. either black or pearl nickel. can't place order for car yet due to A8 not released but do have an allocation.

Yes sir, I ordered an 18x12" rear for mine actually with the MT345. Hit me up and I can get them going. You'd have them by January and I can send complete with the MT345 rear tires mounted balanaced and TPMS in them as well ;)

These are some freshly cut new Forgeline AR1 wheels for a C7 corvette!

I can get you OEM 18/19 or 19/20" Z51 sizes for you street guys and for you track guys I can do an 18x10" square setup as well as a drag setup with 18x6 and 18x11" for LT1 and 18x12.5" for Z06 guys with a 345 MT DR.

weaponX featuring Forgeline GT1 monoblock wheels - a race worthy rim

These hot wheels are the Forgeline GT1 with center lock option but also available in standard 5 lug. I have done a couple of sets of these in the past month and I feel are a very solid choice for the C7's body. They feature a uniform spoke pattern and are lightened on the sides of the spokes to reduce the weight. These wheels weigh in less than 19lbs for the fronts and less than 20lbs for the rears.

**If you like this style, this is also available as a 3pc wheel, the GT3 for a different look and multiple finishing options.

Derived from our GTD1 racing wheel, the Forgeline GT1 brings its racing DNA to the street. The GT1 combines the latest in advanced wheel technology, including one piece forged monoblock construction, motorsport engineered design, I-beamed spokes, and I-beamed spoke spans to deliver head-turning good looks with track-ready capability.

The Forgeline GT1 is a fully-forged one-piece monoblock wheel. Utilizing manufacturing technology similar to our very successful GA1R wheel, the concave 12-spoke design of the GT1 looks great and allows plenty of room for caliper clearance and extreme brake fitment. The one-piece monoblock forging and computer-simulated FEA design process yield a wheel that is very lightweight, extremely stiff, and has excellent fatigue strength. The GT1 is machined from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum.

12-Spoke Design
Engineered fitments
I-Beamed Spoke Technology
I-Beamed Spoke Spans Along the Lip
Very Lightweight
Generous Brake Clearance
