Forgeline RB1 Wheel from GMP Performance
Meet one of Forgeline's newest additions, introduced at the SEMA 2013 show: The RB1.
The Forgeline RB1 is a fully-forged one-piece monoblock wheel that utilizes manufacturing technology similar to our very successful GA1R wheel. The RB1 features a concave 10-spoke design with a subtle directional twist on each spoke, so each set includes unique left and right versions. The RB1 also utilizes Forgeline's I-beam technology along each spoke and along the front lip between spokes to reduce mass and enhance strength & rigidity. And our one-piece monoblock forging and computer-simulated FEA design process yield a wheel that is lightweight, extremely stiff, and has excellent fatigue strength.
The RB1 is machined from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum. It is currently available in 18, 19, and 20-inch diameters with a range of widths and offsets. (Please Note: Depending on size, the RB1 may be available in deep, medium, or shallow concave profiles. See sizing chart for details.) And just like any Forgeline wheel, the RB1 is available with fully customizable finish options.

What makes Forgeline Motorsports the premier manufacturer of forged 6061-T6 aluminum custom performance 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.
For over 20 years, we have applied our racing experience and passion for motorsports toward designing and building wheels that can withstand the extreme demands of sports car racing. With an unwavering commitment to strength and safety, we have earned a spot on some of the world's fastest race cars, including those in United SportsCar, Grand-Am, American LeMans, SCCA Pro Racing, and virtually every amateur racing series in America.
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 our 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, our 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.
And Forgeline's legendary quality and customer service is unmatched. The experience, dedication, and personal involvement of our hands-on company owner and our entire team of employees ensure that every Forgeline customer is confidently investing in quality, strength, durability, and performance with every purchase.
