How is everyone? I wanted to introduce myself to everyone on the forum. My name is Joseph with WheelExecutives.com, we are a new vendor on the forums. My partner Luke and I will be frequenting this forum, and hopefully building a strong relationship with this community and its members.

Over time we will be posting up special deals and pricing on different brands of wheels for all of you. If you are interested in a particular brand that you see on our website feel free to contact us for a quote.

We wanted to start out by posting up for everyone a look at a new account we just got. The company is called 360 Forged and they produce a 3 pc forged aluminum wheel with hand laid carbon fiber centers (front and back). The company has a few new designs coming out which we will have pictures of in the next few days. All wheels are available with or without the carbon fiber.

We are currently the only place to order these wheels and we are offering introductory pricing. If anyone is interested in pricing or more information on these wheels, you can e-mail me @ [email protected], send me a PM, post in this message your contact info or visit our website @ WheelExecutives.com.

These wheels are a forged 3 pc. aluminum wheel w/ hand laid carbon fiber centers, a first of their kind and unreal in person. Sizes available are 19"-22" with a width up to 14"!

Thank you all for looking at hope to talk with some of you soon!

yes the wheel itself is made out of t-6061 t6 aluminum, and then the carbon is hand laid. it is for both cosmetics and it helps the integrity of the wheel.

This guy is a vendor. His checks help support this site. How about we play nice.
so if he is a vendor, and if this dymag is a good product and not exclusive to another vendor, he should consider carrying the line.

saw these at SEMA last year and spent a good deal of time talking to factory reps. They ran those CF wheels for a full season on a GT3 in Europe and had the actual wheel there on display for inspection. Many curbs and a few wrecks still didn't destroy it to where it wouldn't hold a bead or be unsafe.




Kind of funny, US sanctioning bodies outlawed them because they were too light and would allow teams with the budget an unfair advantage. The rules were changed to say "wheels must be an alloy material". DYMAG's response was to start designing a wheel that used a nickel and carbon weave instead of straight carbon/carbon or carbon/kevlar. Still maintains light weight and would then meet the requirement of an alloy wheel, although it would be an alloy composite...

Seriously people, if you're willing to take of a HIGHLY ENGINEERED QUALITY product that's currently on your car, at least put something of similar quality on it, not some BS 22" or other design just for looks. If you want a car that just looks fast and don't care about loosing performance, then go out and buy a Jaguar and put the crappy wheels on there. I am getting so sick of people putting crap on their cars, not doing any research on the manuf or the brand and then blasting the forums with pictures of their cars and bragging about how "great" the car is. The three most important things on your car for safety are your tires, your wheels and your brakes. I can't believe that people would be willing to put an untested product from a no name company (without TUV or JIL certification; the only two sanctioning bodies that really matter) on their 100k car and risk their life at the same time!!!

Last year at SEMA was a perfect example of how outrageous the wheel industry has gotten. A booth displayed lexan center wheels. They had them on a Mercedes sedan to show they were real, and had a video of them on a car in a parking lot. Funny part was you read their press release, and they have no heat release from brakes, capture dust and can't be cleaned on the inside, and can't take impact force so they're really just a "show item". Then, if you look closely at the car, you'll see that under the car there are jacks supporting the car...in their own display they can't even let the product "stand on it's own". Yet they still got all this press and from what I've been told by my wholesalers, have sold several sets!!!

do they come with a set of jacks to support the car or are those sold seperate :)

I don't mean to harass a forum sponsor, my rant above is on the wheel industry in general right now, not on your company (but please tell me you're not offering those lexan wheels to customers and that's just a joke!) Distributors need to start taking some responsibility where the wheel manuf.'s have left off. You wouldn't replace seat belts with fashionable lace ribbon, and you wouldn't replace the gas tank with a cool clear glass tank to show off the high octane gas you just spent a fortune on, and I'm sure you wouldn't replace an airbags with little bags of confetti...yet right now it's commonplace and acceptable for shops to act like wheel experts because they can quote a product with a custom offset and put a set of cheap "fashion" designed wheels that are poorly made, unsafe and unreliable and who's only claim to a fitment is it's made to measurements that will bolt up to a car. I've seen wheels advertised in Robb Report and Dupont Registry, that had flashy ads with their wheels on Ferrari's and Bentley's, that when placed on the car and turned by hand were visibly off center while just sitting on the lift...imagine the vibration going down the road!!!

Ok, the air is thin up here, I'm climbing down off of my soapbox :)

Can you resize the photos or upload them to this site as attachments? I am going to delete the links in a day or two as they screw the entire thread up.

Cheers

To be honest with you, I've never had a single request for them. If the customer wanted them, I would obviously speak to them first, but if in the end they still wanted the product, then I give the customer what they want.
