New VX1R Beadlock
After more than 25 years of producing the most highly regarded and technically advanced wheels for professional road racing applications, Forgeline directed our experience and capability toward the drag racing industry by launching our Drag Racing Series, in 2020. Now we’re proud to introduce the latest wheel within the series, the all-forged VX1R Beadlock wheel!
Unlike most traditional drag racing wheels, Forgeline’s forged monoblock single beadlock VX1R Beadlock wheel is carved entirely in one piece from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum using an advanced precision machining process. This forged monoblock technology has proven successful, for many years, at the highest levels of road racing, and Forgeline is excited to apply it to beadlock wheels for straight line racing applications.
The VX1R Beadlock wheel is very similar to our track-proven VX1R road racing wheel with one big exception: It has been re-engineered to include a special bolt-on outboard beadlock ring that, like the wheel itself, is also precision-machined from forged 6061-T6 aluminum. This forged aluminum ring holds the tire securely in place, to limit unwanted tire slip against the wheel, and to keep the tire from unseating, at very high speeds. The forged beadlock ring is secured to the wheel with a series of 21 standard lightweight titanium bolts.
Forgeline’s new One Piece Forged Monoblock VX1R Beadlock wheel is available to order immediately in 15, 17, 18, and 19 inch diameters in a range of widths and custom offsets & fitments. Upon request, it can be engineered to work with shank-style lug nuts. And just like any Forgeline wheel, the VX1R Beadlock is available with fully customizable finish options.
