Make sure to Call or Email for your Discount Members.

What is the weight per rim? Any kind of spacers or extenders required for 2019 350R? How will the paint hold up against "spirited" driving? Background, I have driven my 350R 165 miles already have a 1 inch mark in the paint on the rim due to road debris. I am looking for a set of rims that can hold up to daily driving but are still close to the same weight. Please let me know your thoughts/recommendations.

Main difference between R and S?
The GT7-R was built around the GT350R and uses all of the OEM hardware and the GT7-S was built from the New Shelby GT500 with more of an aggressive fitment.

The GT7-S does NOT allow of the use OEM lug nuts for a GT350R, you would need open end lug nuts on the GT7-S Wheel. If you look closer at the GT7-S the face of the wheels is a slight different.

GT7-R Weights 24 lbs Each. 19"

GT7-S Weights 23 lbs Each. 19"

...tempting, coming close to a price I would pay...
is it me or is the GT7-S more concave than the R? Can the GT7-R be made with a more concave look?
Any pics of GT7-S installed on a GT350?
Thanks

Yes, The GT7-S is more of an aggressive fitment for a GT350 & GT350R.

No, the GT7-R is already set to be exactly like the GT350R Wheels, we wouldn't be able to change the whole program for 1 set.

The price for a set of Full Forged Wheels that are build here in the USA is actually pretty reasonable, comparing to other well knows American Made Forged Companies that are over $5k easily.

Of course we could bring them over from over seas for half the price like BC Forged or Signature but we decided to keep the work and craftsmanship here in the USA brother.

Let us know, Flash Sale Ends 12/27/2019 this Friday.

Here are some images :

I wish I didn’t have a brand new set of the 7R in my basement waiting for spring to be mounted.

I would jump on the 7S version.
Anyone out there want to trade ?

Beautiful wheels. I’m curious, what drives the cost up in the US as opposed to the import side? I’m assuming the tooling cost is similar, is the labor side that much higher? The sale pricing isn’t that far off of the imported stuff.

US made blank forgings is a bit higher here in the states than over seas, Labor hours per worker, Insurance, benefits, etc...
We could buy wheels and have them built overseas just like every company out there to keep the price low, but why cheap out on the forgings from overseas when we dont really know what material are they really using.
We feel more comfortable getting a set that all has been made and built here in the states.

Price point we made them as low as we can to make them affordable, we could have gone the other route and price them higher like HRE, Vossen, Birxton, Klassen, but we deiced NOT TO.
We think the price you get for a full forged set is very reasonable compare to the other US made wheel companies.
