Forged Wheel Guide for 8-Lug Wheels

Forged Wheel Guide

Both casual and hard-core enthusiasts know most custom trucks have aftermarket wheels. In order to satisfy the ravenous truck wheel market, there are literally hundreds of wheel companies willing to sell hoops of all sizes, designs, and finishes, ranging from super affordable to downright outrageous. A big factor that dictates price is the manufacturing process, and different materials require different processes. This article focuses exclusively on forged wheels, which, due to their material and manufacturing process (with extreme heat and pressure, a hydraulic press forces a raw block of aluminum into a wheel-like shape that is then CNC-machined ), are considered the strongest, lightest, and most expensive. Despite the hefty price tag, occurrences of forged wheels on eight-lug trucks have exploded, becoming status symbols, points of extreme customization, and, in some cases, the centerpiece of a truck.
