  • C8VPO Forgeline Pics

    Hi all,

    I just got my C8 out in the 20 degree weather so I
    could show you how amazing the new Forgeline rims look. Got them installed last night & it's going to snow here in a few hours. I would never have driven the car in this cold weather but all the new knowledge I now have from gong to Spring Mountain I know my limits and the cars. LOVE that place!

    Also the rims definitely fill the fender gap!

        Hi John, they are medium satin bronze. I went for it color wise & I couldn’t be happier. I personally think all the colors on my car work well together but we all have different tastes.

        Thanks,
        Rich

          I like that color too. Those wheels are cleanable which is getting to be a higher and higher priority with me for I prefer driving to cleaning especially wheel cleaning.

            Great observation MidEngine, they are. I also put 2 coats of CQuartz UK 3.0 on them last week so they should be a snap to clean.

                I can't really tell by the photos as they look really shiny, but how close are they to a gloss black? Thank You!

                  Great question 21C8Vette, I personally think the best way to describe to color is it looks like black chrome. Thats why it's so shinny & picks up a lot of reflection & back ground color, that was going to be my safe color choice as it goes with any color Corvette. Attached is a really good close up, they are absolutely gorgeous rims.

                  C8VPO has the best prices on the internet on Forgeline F01 wheels shipped directly from Forgeline.

                  Thanks,
                  Rich

                    Richrat, love that black chrome wheel, could you show a picture of the whole car? Looks like a white or silver car. Mine is Silver Flare I think they would look great.
                    Thanks

                      Hi jlc41,
                      This might be the only silver C8 with F01's right now.

                      Thanks,

                          Love the bronze. I didn't know Forgeline was doing the F01 in that finish.

                            Hi AverageVetteNut,
                            Yes F01s can be custom ordered in any of the standard finishes on the Forgeline’s website, 4-6 weeks is the average order to ship time for custom colors.

                            Thanks,
                            Rich

                              THanks Rich. Gives me another option to consider now. I like them in the anthracite as well. but want something different.
