Forgestar Wheels at DV8 Motoring - 18s, 19s, 20s, 22s!
 
3 Attachment(s)
Forgestar wheels are a semi-custom wheel. We specify the offset and the lug pattern, both of which are machined/drilled to order. This guarantees a perfect fit for your Camaro (or any vehicle). To date, the Forgestar wheels are still the most economical way to get those wide 275 front tires and even wider 315 tires on the rear of your Camaro. They are a flow-formed (aka rotary forged) wheel, consisting of a pressure cast center and rotary forged hoop. This makes them very light, and strong. More importantly, inexpensive!

As mentioned in our previous posts, the wheel core stocking structure for Forgestar has changed for 2011. They will no longer stock each wheel diameter/width in specific colors, as that was causing issues of running out of one size and not having colors to match for building a full set. For 2011, all wheel cores are stocked in bare aluminum. You will get your choice of color, it is now included in the pricing. You may order them bare, but there is no discount for getting them without any finish. This has slightly increased pricing, but in the end it will provide a better matched product and you will get exactly what you want instead of waiting for more colored cores to arrive.

Pricing - We can match any Authorized Forgestar Dealer pricing.

F14 18x9 and 18x10 (or 18x11) = $1350 set of 4
F14 20x9 and 20x11 (or 20x10.5 deep concave) = $1850 set of 4
F14 22x9 and 22x10 (or 22x10.5 deep concave) = $2200 set of 4

CF5 18x9 and 18x10 (or 18x11) = $1350 set of 4
CF5 20x9 and 20x11 (or 20x10.5 deep concave) = $1850 set of 4

CF10 20x9 and 20x11 deep concave = $1850 set of 4

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Will these fit my 2010 Camaro SS or LS, even when lowered? Will 275 tires up front and 315 tires on the rear rub?
A: Yes, the offset is the same for LS and SS cars, and these wheels clear both brake caliper types. Yes, 275 and 315 tires fit properly, without rubbing, even on lowered Camaros.

Q: How much do these weigh compared to the factory 20" wheels?
A: Factory 20x8 Front = 31.5 lbs each. Factory 20x9 Rear = 33.0 lbs each. Forgestar 20x9 Front = 26.5 lbs each, Forgestar 20x11 Rear = 28.0 lbs each. Yes, these wheels are wider than the factory wheels, yet still weigh a combined total of 20 lbs less! 20 lbs less rotating mass is a substantial difference.

Q: Will I need four new tires if I buy these? Can I use my factory SS tires?
A: Your factory 275 rear tires will fit on the front with these wheels, leaving you only to purchase two new rear 305 or 315 wide tires.

Q: Will the 18" wheels fit over my Brembo SS brakes?
A: Yes, as long as you do not have the "rollerskate" brake pads found on some later builds. Those can be removed by buying aftermarket brake pads.

Q: Will my factory TPMS sensors fit these wheels?
A: Yes, the sensors will mount exactly like they do on the OEM wheels. No adapters required.

Wheel Sizes/Weights (I've weighed each of these myself)
18x8.5 = 19.5 lbs
18x10 = 21 lbs
18x11 = 21.5 lbs
18x12 = 22.5 lbs
19x9 = 24 lbs
19x9.5 = 24.5 lbs
19x10 = 25 lbs
20x9 = 26.5 lbs
20x9.5 = 26.5 lbs
20x10.5 = 28 lbs
20x11 = 28 lbs
22x9 = 29.5 lbs

Here is a comparison between the concavity of the normal concave vs the deep concave. Both wheels shown are 20" wheels. Also, some photos of the 22" F14 wheels!

Hey Tony I have a question. You say that the F14 is available in 20x9 and 20x11 (or 20x10.5 deep concave) = $1895. In the Forgestar literature it says that the F14 is available in 20x8.5, 9, 10 in the semi-concave and 20x9.5, 10.5, 11, 12 in the deep concave. Which is accurate?

Nine Ball 01-25-2011 09:49 AM

The current 20x11 wheels are not deep concave. I asked Forgestar about the brochure page, and they have confirmed it was a typo error. We were the first ones to catch it, LOL.

20x11 is not deep concave, only 20x10.5 is deep concave.

Thanks

Can't wait to see pics of the CF5 on a Camaro.. :popcorn: It's between these two wheels for me, but I want pictures first :laugh:

How is this?

These are the first set of production Forgestar CF5 wheels built for a Camaro. As soon as they became available, I ordered this set. Will was nice enough to come over and model them on his white SS, and now they are on my cyber gray SS. The white SS has KW coil-overs, my gray Camaro has Pfadt drop springs.

I noticed that in other 2011 Forgestar literature too and was just curious. :thumbsup:

Finish on them is textured gunmetal gray with optional orange lip pinstripe:

Those look awesome! Just for reference, are those the semi-concave wheels? The textured gunmetal finish gives it more of a flat or satin look, rather than a glossy look of the standard gunmetal, is that correct?

Nine Ball 01-25-2011 11:55 AM

The ones on the Camaro above are deep concave rears, normal concave fronts. With the Camaro, there simply isn't a lot of room for concave wheels, due to the high positive offset and the big Brembo calipers. Also, these wheels were designed to fit a wide range of vehicles, so they couldn't go super concave on them. Most newer cars don't have the deep offsets.

Yes, the textured colors are more semi-matte-like. I prefer the textured versions over the normal matte colors.

Jay_LHD3 01-25-2011 12:21 PM

I have to wait a few more weeks before I can put my pre-order in. I have to confirm my tax return and my work bonus first.

Tony,

From your previous thread there was a picture of the CF5 from SEMA that was more of a satin rather than a matte or gloss, was this a custom finish. I am interested in these in the same finish as I already have. I love my wheels, but would like them a little lighter. PM me if you like...

Nine Ball 01-25-2011 05:22 PM

Nino,

There are some subtle differences in the lug area on your Niche/ADV wheels, but there is no denying they are similar in style. I'm not sure you'd see much difference in weight, unless yours are really heavy for some reason. ADV Flowspec wheels are made with the same flow-formed process as these.

Here is the textured black F14 wheel, shown in 22"

Mine weigh 33.4 lbs for a 20 x 10"... Not too bad.

Would love to see the CF5's in other colors. Really want to see them in silver.

You can be the first. As long as you like the wheel design, and like the color, they will look great together. Be a trend setter :)

Spoken like a true sales guy haha. It really depends on the type of silver it is. I like the color of the stock 1lt wheels.

jomo45 01-26-2011 04:25 PM

I agree, depends on the actual Silver used.. Nothing on Forgestar's website, they stilll show brushed Titanium as an option, but not Silver.. Sorry but pics are req'd before dropping coin:iono:

Guys, keep in mind that even photos can make silver appear different than in person. Just the exposure setting alone, or the type of lighting, can make silver appear darker or lighter. There really aren't many variations in silver for the wheel industry, it is a pretty generic color that gets used on most of the wheels out there. If you want them to be exactly the same color as your SIM car, that can be arranged at a higher cost. They will color-match these wheels. Here are photos of some custom colors.

Shardik2SS 01-27-2011 11:21 AM

What finish is this Tony and would you think it would look good on RJT?

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/attach...1&d=1296140349

Nine Ball 01-27-2011 11:38 AM

It is a custom finish, no actual name yet. Looks like a metallic brown in person. I can't see it looking good on any colors but white or black, to be honest. For RJT, I'd go either silver or gunmetal.

Thanks Tony. I agree about silver or gunmetal, but I've had several people say they think black would look good. Just wanted your professional opinion. I'm planning to get a set of 18s from you as soon as I can for track use. :thumbsup:

Another question, would you recommend Nitto 05r, 555s or other?

Nine Ball 01-27-2011 12:48 PM

For track use, the black ones would look more race inspired for sure.

Tony,

What's the charge for their custom colors? Bronze burst if it varies by color.
