The Shelby GT350R was purposely built to be a track monster. And if you are lucky enough to own one of the Ford Performance track-ready vehicles then chances are you have had to make the tough decision as to whether or not you were going to use your stock, 19-inch carbon-fiber wheels on the track or keep them as a display set for your weekend Mustang gatherings throughout the year.
The tricky part is finding the right aftermarket wheel setup that will not only perform well at the track, but are also nice enough to sport on your Shelby GT350R when you are traveling to and from an event as well.
If you are a proud GT350R owner looking for a track day option, Forgeline has got you covered with its GS1R — a one-piece, forged monoblock wheel that holds its own on the track and the street.
Forgeline GS1R Features
• One-Piece Monoblock Design
• Concave Profile
• I-Beamed Spoke Technology
• Extreme Fatigue Strength
• 2,100-pound Street-Tire Load Rating (per wheel)
• Generous Brake Clearance
• Forged 6061-T6 Aluminum
• Open Lug center will NOT accept a center cap.

These aluminum, monoblock wheels cost substantially less than replacing a set of your stock carbon fiber hoops, and can be ordered in a variety of custom colors and fitments.
The GS1R wheels are specifically designed for professional racing teams competing in the United Sportscar CTSCC Grand Sport class so you can rest easy knowing that these wheels will survive the weekend track days.
The GS1R is machined from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum and are machined from the center area for additional weight reduction and improved access to the lugs. The wheel is also designed with a new chambered outer lip which ensures faster wheel changes and depending on what size you choose, can even save an additional pound of mass from each wheel.
The Forgeline GS1R can be ordered in a variety of different custom colors and fitments.
The wheel is available in a variety of different sizes including 17-, 18-, 19-, and 20-inch diameters and can be custom ordered to fit a number of different widths and offsets. All Forgeline wheels are available through a nationwide network of retail partners. For more information on the complete line of Forgeline wheels visit the company here.
