      Due to our extremely close relationship with Forgestar, I can offer you the best service possible with your Forgestar Wheel Order.
      Forgestar's offices are just 15 minutes from us and I am in contact with them on a daily basis.

      For this reason, I wanted to make a thread to keep you guys updated with all the new releases, options, and photos!

      First off:

      Rotary Forging
      The Forgestar lineup utilizes a combination of the best methods of forging and casting methods both in the same wheel. This is called rotary forging, and is used by companies such as BBS and Enkei. These wheels are custom made to order and can be made to fit your Audi with a large range of available sizes, offsets and finishes.

      Rotary Forging is a production procedure that turns the wheel (or rim section) over a special mandrel and three hydraulic rollers using tremendous pressure. The pressure and turning then force the rim area to form against the mandrel, creating the shape and width of the rim. During flow forming, the rim actually "flows" down to create the full rim width. During flow forming, pressure applied to the cast rim actually changes its mechanical properties, so its strength and impact values become similar to those of a forged rim. That translates to up to 15% less weight when compared to a standard cast wheel.

      This technology allows for increased bend resistance without having to make the wheel heavier.

      Take a look at this video to see how Forgestar wheels are made and finished!

      Turnaround time
      Because Forgestar Wheels are all made to order, with custom offsets and finishes, average turnaround time on an order is 6-8 weeks.

      Forgestar Tracking
      To address customer concerns regarding the production time on the wheels, Forgestar has very recently implemented an order tracking system!
      Now you can check on your Forgestar order the same way you can check on your pizza delivery!
      You simply log in and you can follow your order's status from "Sourcing Material" to Machining/Finishing/Quality Control/Shipped!
      Wonder no more where your wheels are in the manufacturing process!

      Forgestar has very recently brought back their extremely popular Brushed finish!

      19x9.5 CF5 in Gloss Gunmetal on B8 A4 Avant

      I recently had a customer come in for a 19x9.5 Forgestar CF5 install.
      The customer had some very specific clearance requirements as he has the full Stasis package.
      This included the Stasis Ohlins Challenge suspension package, full Stasis engine work, as well as the massive Alcon BBK in the front!

      The obvious clearance issue was with the front brakes.
      The customer had previously purchased HREs as well as a few other sets but they did not clear the huge Alcon caliper, so he had to sell them.

      With this in mind, we got to work checking brake fitment with Forgestar in several sizes and styles.
      We finally settled on the Forgestar CF5 in 19x9.5" for the best balance between performance and style.

      I have to admit, when we got the car in and I saw the massive brakes, I was a little worried about brake clearance.
      But we test fitted the fronts, we found there was plenty of room to spare!
      Forgestar definitely knows what they are doing when it comes to fitment.

      We threw the wheels on the car and the customer was ecstatic!






      Forgestar has told us this is the first set of 19" CF5s on a B8, and I personally think they fit the car amazingly well!

      This customer is a major track junkie, and the Avant has already seen over 40 track days!
      The Forgestars are meant to be his daily driven as well as track wheels.
      IMO he couldnt have made a better choice

      The customer himself is a member himself, I believe he is planning on putting up a full write up on his own soon!

      Best Regards,
      Jason@ModBargains.com

      Much respect and appreciation to the BlakeP and the other A'zine wheel gurus for offset advice.

      Thanks to Forgestar for being patient with all of my questions and measurement requests.

      Props and thanks to Jason at ModBargains for great customer service and excellent communication throughout the whole process.
