Any pics of the FG-03's in gloss black?

I was considering going with the M017's in gloss black, but these new wheels have me second guessing lol

Not yet but we will soon have some samples finishes come through.
also keep in mind the M017 is a flow forged wheel
and has a completely different price point then our custom built FG line up.
Let me know if you need a quote and I can help you get one in your mail box.

My initial thought is that 1500 lb might be marginal, especially for use on track and with tires stickier than stock SS rubber. Is there a guideline MRR uses for recommending a load rating for a specific car? It's not horsepower I'd be worried about as your post suggests, it's cornering and braking loads particularly with SS 1LE stock tires or even more aggressive rubber, as well as mid corner bumps, potholes, road imperfections, etc. I think straight line power loads will be low compared to the different types of loads mentioned above.

I have some questions / requests for you:
  • Can you PM me a quote for FG-09 style forged wheels in SS 1LE size/offset?
  • What's the cost increase to go from a 1500 lb load rating to 2000 lb?
  • What's the method for assessing the load rating? Can you provide some detail and any SAE specs or similar that you may be following?
  • Where does the aluminum blank come from? Where are the wheels machined?
  • What kind of certifications do the wheels have (JWL, TUV, etc)?

Ill definitely PM you some answers for sure but also keep in mind you dont need anything higher then 750kg on your camaro, higher loads douse not mean you have a better quality wheel just means you add more weight which eventually counter attacks the entire reason for buying a Forged wheel. if higher load rating = a better wheel we would all be rolling on cars with 40lb+wheels. on another note even a Race developed vehicle like the Camaro ZL1 1LE directly from Chevrolet driven by professionals at Nurburgring dont have a extreme amount of load rating required.
ill get accurate numbers for you soon.

Good Point. Never really thought of it that way.
If a Stock car on Stock wheels can do what the ZL1 1LE did....anything more is overkill. Even the SS 1LE is a track monster but no one complains about the load rating of their wheels.


Or the Marketing guys want to sell you "Track'" wheels for $1500+ a piece and don't mention the 7:16 on the Nurburgring on stock wheels and 100AA rubber.


As long as the load rating equals what is currently on the vehicle there is no concern.

Thanks for the response. I'd just like to ensure the load rating on these wheels is at least as high as it is on the stock SS 1LE wheels. You mention the stock wheels "don't have an extreme load rating", what's the load rating on the stock (SS 1LE) wheels?

In order for the load rating to mean anything, it would need to be tested under a similar specification / certification guideline that the OEM's use. This is why I'd like to understand what certifications these forged wheels have (JWL, TUV, etc)?
