Lightbulb Retro Porsche wheels are here!

Last year some of our clients seemed to all have a similar idea. A modern take on the classic 5 spoke wheel that could be adapted to fit any and all Porsche's. We approached our longtime wheel partner ForgeLine with the idea and we began to Design what you see below. Fast forward to SEMA 2018 and we proudly debut the FU3C.

The Forgeline FU3C wheel pays homage to the classic Porsche wheel of the 1960s and 1970s. But unlike its predecessor, the FU3C is a modern 3-piece wheel that is manufactured from fully forged 6061-T6 aluminum centers using the latest engineering and manufacturing technology. The FU3C borrows from the original five-spoke design with dimensional inverted tapered spokes, but rather than just recreate yet another replica, the Forgeline engineering team spent many hours refining our design to create a wheel with a unique distinctly Forgeline character. This resource-intensive process yielded a wheel with a concave center, carefully-tuned proportions, and extended spokes that reach out beyond the rim register and over the stepped lip outer.

FITMENT
Any desired offsets can be made, we have all the information for every porsche though so when ordering.
All we need from you are
No problem clearing CCBS
19"-21" diameters and 8"-16" widths.
-Available in Factory Centerlock & 5 lug variants as well as ForgeLine center lock conversion pieces.
-5 lug fitment centers can be built to accept factory Porsche center caps.

FINISHES
-Can spec an almost endless number of colors and finishes on the inner barrel, face & outer barrel.
standard as shown on the Targa GTS below is Satin graphite centers and inner barrel, brushed outer lip and spokes.
-Paint to sample match any part of the wheel to your car as well.

WEIGHTS
Weights for a 991.2 GTS fitment are 24# front 29#rear significant time has been spent reducing weight everywhere we could.
-As standard these are built with blind Titanium hardware securing the 3 pieces together.
Weight will vary as they are built for every application independently, example a 20" setup for a GT3RS will weigh less than a 20" setup from a Targa GTS as the Targa weighs substantially more

ORDERING
6-9 week build time (allow more for PTS or individual custom finishing methods
Typical 20" 991.2 GTS fitment runs around 7500 a set as shows on the Targa GTS below
Year/Make Model?
WIll you run stock tire sizes?
Factory fitment or aggressive fitment ?<<aggressive shown on Targa GTS below pushes wheels out towards edge of fenders giving the illusion of lowering the vehicle without lowering the vehicle THIS DOES NOT ACTUALLY LOWER THE VEHICLE OR REDUCE APPROACH/DEPARTURE ANGLES IN ANY WAY <<Yes someone has asked
Standard Finish or custom? (Standard finish shown on Targa GTS below) If undecided once ordered we will provide renders of up to 3 finish configurations for viewing on your vehicle
CCBS?
Centerlock or 5 lug? (If 5 lug factory Porsche center cap or forgeline center cap)
Need TPMS sensors?
