Forgeline's new SE1 Wheel from GMP Performance

The Forgeline SE1 is a fully-forged one-piece monoblock wheel. Utilizing much of the technology of our very successful GA1R wheel, including "I-beamed" spoke technology, the concave design of the SE1 looks great and allows plenty of room for caliper clearance and extreme brake fitment. The one-piece monoblock forging and I-beamed spokes yield a wheel that is lightweight, extremely stiff, and has excellent fatigue strength.

The Forgeline SE1 Wheel




The SE1 is machined from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum. It is currently available in 19 and 20-inch diameters with a range of widths and custom offsets for most BMW models. 9 inch widths feature a shallow concave profile while all other widths are a deeper concave. (As of August 2013, 18-inch diameters and additional 20-inch widths are currently in development.) And just like any Forgeline wheel, the SE1 is available with fully customizable finish options.

About Forgeline Wheels


Forgeline Motorsports manufactures the world's finest custom-made high-performance lightweight forged aluminum street and racing wheels for the most discerning enthusiasts and the most demanding applications.

Every Forgeline wheel is engineered using computer-simulated finite element analysis and tested beyond SAE standards using real-world load variables to ensure strength, safety, and performance. Innovative features like I-beamed spokes, hidden titanium ARP fasteners, meticulously-engineered centers, and complex manufacturing techniques (like those found in their flagship three-piece competition wheel, the GA3R) ensure that Forgeline wheels are strong, fast, and stunning.

Forgeline wheels are machined from heat-treated 6061-T6 aluminum that is forged on a 6000-ton hydraulic press. This forging process aligns the grain structure, reduces porosity, and increases uniformity in the material, creating the highest strength-to-weight ratios and the most consistent quality. On average, their forgings are 40% stronger than cast aluminum.

Forgeline's own in-house manufacturing and engineering capabilities also provide unmatched flexibility when it comes to vehicle fitments, wheel sizing, and custom finish options. Whether you need a wheel that is specially-built to accommodate your unique suspension and brake package, or you just want a custom color combination to express your own individual personality, Forgeline can get it done! We can even build completely original one-off wheel designs for prototypes, show cars, and creative enthusiasts who wish to have a truly original wheel.
