Turn 14 Distribution Adds Forgestar to Line Card
Performance parts distributor Turn 14 Distribution has widened its selection of performance wheels with the addition of Forgestar to its line card, the company announced.
“Forgestar is an innovative manufacturer that develops strong and lightweight wheels using rotary formed flow forming technology. The company has established itself in the domestic space and has developed wheel styles and fitments that fit multiple markets. Forgestar wheels are popular among Mustang, Challenger, Charger and Corvette enthusiasts, and we expect this to hold true with our dealers. Our partnership with Forgestar will cater to numerous sought-after wheel segments and provide our dealers with a wide range of premium options,” said Alex Lesslie, divisional purchasing manager, Turn 14 Distribution.
Forgestar offers a one-piece lightweight rotary formed custom flow formed wheel lineup. Rotary formed flow forming is a production procedure that turns the wheel over a special mandrel and three hydraulic rollers using immense pressure, the company said. The process changes its mechanical properties, creating strength and impact values similar to those of a forged rim while obtaining 15% weight savings compared to a standard cast wheel. Forgestar proprietary rotary formed flow forming technology allows the customers to choose between a range of offsets for every wheel width. As a result, the end consumer can select a wheel that will perfectly fit their vehicle, the company said.
