What Are Forged Wheels? A Quick Guide

Wheels are probably one of the easiest aftermarket upgrades for any ride. It doesn’t matter if you have a luxury European or drive around a JDM, wheels can drastically change the look of the car and its performance. While the concept of aftermarket wheels is pretty simple, many don’t really know what forged wheels actually are.

When you’re in the market for new car forged wheels, there are two options available to you: cast and forged wheels. The biggest difference between these two types of car wheels is their manufacturing process. Savini Wheels offers both forged and cast wheels, but for those wondering if forged rims are worth the cost, here’s a little rundown on what they are!

What Are Forged Rims?

Forged rims start as solid aluminum and then crafted in beautiful and sleek wheels that can grace just about any ride. The chunk of solid aluminum is heated and molded using pressurized machines to provide them their shape and function. These wheels get their name from the “forging process” of a single piece of aluminum into the shape of a wheel. With cast wheels, they’re also made from aluminum, but the main difference is that the aluminum is melted into liquid form and then poured into molds.

Advantages of Forged Wheels

Forged wheels offer several advantages. For starters, they are about 3x stronger than cast wheels and 25% lighter. This is important if performance is your thing. With these wheels, you’re also offered more fitment sizes and they can be easily customized when it comes to finishes. This is great for customizers looking to match their wheels to any theme or color scheme. With Savini forged wheels, you’ll also be able to choose from different configurations based on your preferences and fitments.
