New One Piece Forged Monoblock SS1R Skinny
Because they go together like peanut butter and jelly. When we released our new forged monoblock SS1R Beadlock wheel, we also created a matching SS1R Skinny, so that traditional rear-wheel-drive applications can take advantage of Forgeline’s forged monoblock wheel technology with a matching set!
Similar to the original road racing version of the SS1R, the new “Skinny” version of the one piece forged monoblock SS1R is precision-machined from a single forging of proprietary 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. But unlike the original road racing version, the “Skinny” has been re-engineered to be optimized for drag racing applications. This includes not only the narrower width (which necessitates a unique narrow forging), but a full set of revised performance metrics to make the SS1R “Skinny” as lightweight as possible.
In addition to the “Skinny” SS1R’s size and weight advantages, it also retains the exceptional brake clearance of the original SS1R. Which means that recreational straight line racers can maintain the giant front brake kits that came with their sports cars, which allows unprecedented flexibility for a wide range of motorsport endeavors.
Like all Forgeline wheels, the new one piece forged monoblock SS1R “Skinny” is custom made-to-order for each individual customer and each unique vehicle application. So they can be made for most vehicle applications and are available with fully customizable finish options.
