    Well, it is official. I am finally on board as a representative for Signature Wheels and DCT Motorsports. I had the pleasure of meeting with several members of the Signature team at SEMA as was graciously offered an opportunity to head up the Mustang sales of their product line. After hearing what they were about, the focus on customer service, and desire to remain affordable I gladly accepted. Per forum rules I cannot post pricing here. Contact me for forum pricing, and check out the web page to see the full product line and retail pricing www.Signaturewheel.com

    Background

    Signature is a newer brand of wheel company, but the owner Eric has experience in the industry with previous brands. Signature was launched and is one of the fastest growing fully forged wheel brands in the market. The company is full of enthusiasts from Porsche, Lamborghini, Mustang, GM, and more. All of the reps for the company are based here in California where the wheels are designed. The beauty of the business model for me as a representative is that I am the direct line from the consumer to production. I have no shop space or fees to pass onto you guys. No other intermediaries, no additional overhead, no need to charge extra money. Orders are placed, submitted, built, and shipped direct to you. This keeps our pricing low and makes us very competitive. The goal here is to provide the highest quality of wheel to our customers at a reasonable price. Particularly in the Mustang scene I want to see fully forged and lightweight wheels on our platform without you guys having to break the bank.

    The Wheels

    Up to now I have had experience with several wheel companies on my personal cars, and other enthusiasts. I have been disappointed many times by what the market provides to us. Either a wheel with poor construction and finish at a low price, a wheel that was too expensive for the average owner to buy, or less than modern (and heavy) designs at a reasonable price. One thing I hated was going to a car show and seeing a bunch of cars all running the same wheel. Our wheel line continues to grow as we come up with new designs, and are open to hear from consumers about what they want. Development of unique designs and offering a wide array of finishes is a must, especially since we all have Signature Wheels on our own cars. One of the best features is we have almost DOUBLED clearance over OEM on the GT350 brake package at the barrel and wheel face!

    ** Standard GT350 models can reuse the OEM lug nuts**
    ** GT350R models or those with extended studs will need to run an open ended or deep lug nut to account for the longer stud length. ZL1 Addons titanium lug nuts are compatible**

    Construction


    All of our lineup is made from solid cores of forged 6061 T6 aluminum. All wheels are CNC'd to perfection and custom made for each application at our facility in Taiwan.. These are not flow formed, rotary forged, spun forged, or any other. Changes to color, custom widths, and custom offsets (within a limit) come at no additional cost. Our faculty has 70 CNC machines so each set only takes 5-7 weeks to build and powder coat, then it is shipped directly to you. All the wheels are JWL and VIA certificate of Accreditation on Dynamic cornering fatigue test equipment, Dynamic radial fatigue test equipment, Impact test equipment and certified stamp on the back of every wheel made. I have personally used mine for track use, and many others have as well. We actually encourage buyers to put the wheels on track as all wheels are designed with strength, style, and a reduction rotating mass in mind.

    The Market

    So far the brand as been extremely popular within the Lamborghini, GM, Porsche, and BMW markets. All the guys paying 10k for fully forged wheels in other markets have been more than pleased with achieving the same quality without a hike in price for the name. That is what I want to bring to the Mustang and Ford community. If you comparison shop brands that offer the same fully forged wheel you will find out why we are growing so fast. Here are some of the wheels we have placed on customer cars across the market.

    My Role

    For me this is simple. Up until now the GT350 and Mustang market has not received the direct attention it needed. I am here to work directly with you guys to place orders, answer questions, show off your amazing cars, and bring people into the Signature Owners Circle. I have the direct ability to adjust pricing, offer deals, and anything else you may need. I will remain active on the boars providing help where I can with my personal profile, and plan to remain an active member of this community. In any case, I am looking forward to those of you who are ready to purchase a set of wheels and join #Signaturenation. Make sure you check us out on Instagram and our web page. Anything you need just send me a PM, Email, DM on Instagram, or text for those that have my number. Thanks for your support.

    I will update this thread with pictures of new wheel designs and customer cars as we move ahead. This business profile is new to me so I want to be balance getting you all information, not violating the board rules, and staying below spam level.

    Nice writeup. Now, with that said, how much do the these cost? I guess forgeline would be the name you are competing with, so how much savings will these realize. Oh, and one more thing, do you plan to publish pricing so that everyone will not have to reply with "please PM me pricing for X"? I always thought that approach was cheesy with other wheel reps.

    Anyway Terrence, best of luck in your new endeavor.

    Best!

    This is a steal of a deal compared to HRE, ADV.1, and others. I talked to him on IG and I would be purchasing a set if the funds were there! Pricing on the Signature website is around $4,500 for monoblock and $5,500 for two piece. OP can hook you up with good pricing though!

    Tom,

    I would love to post pricing, but the forum rules dictate that all business information that discusses pricing be kept off these technical sections. I just want to introduce the product and new venture with this post. I even had to edit my last post that I put up, but it looks like another member handled it.

    Thanks!

    Another question I forgot to ask. You know those 6gr wheels have minimal caliper clearance. Do these wheels have better clearance? If so, what is the measurement?

    For sure man. Step 1, get some wheels on that ride of yours. I am ready when you are :thumbsup:
    Brother, one if the greatest features of the wheel is the increased caliper clearance. Both at the barrel to caliper and the wheel face to the caliper. My rough estimate would be double than what we have stock. I was washing the car last weekend and can almost stick my whole hand behind the caliper to clean it.

    I will get you pics and measurements this weekend. It feels good to know that the inside barrel if my wheel and caliper won’t be damaged by rocks or debris.

    Happy to share with you guys the release of our brand new SV501 Track Series. This is a track inspired wheel with lightweight and strength as the focus. The wheel is available in matte/gloss black, bronze, and gunmetal. GT350 spec wheels tipped the scales at 20-21 lbs!
