  • How Do I Purchase A Set Of Forged Wheels?

    Thank you for your interest in Custom Wheels. Custom wheel sets are custom-built for your vehicle with many personalization options.

    The easiest way to order is to contact us via WhatsApp: +1(860)531-8888, or email us at

    When ordering directly, our sales team will discuss your vehicle and Stark Forged wheel build with you, in depth. Once you have determined your desired wheel model, sizing, finish and any additional options, we will provide you with a formal estimate. Once you have reviewed this estimate and confirmed all details to be correct, a non-refundable 50% deposit will be required.

    At this point, we will provide you with 3D visuals showing the concavity and/or lip size your wheels will have at the desired specs with the given brake clearance needed. From there, we will proceed with the manufacturing process. The manufacturing process may vary in time but standard is 3-5 weeks throughout the year. Once your wheels are complete, we will send you a completion photo. Once you confirm this photo, we will charge the remaining 50% balance, proceed with shipping and provide you with a UPS tracking number the following day.

  • I Want To Build A Special Set of Wheels , Is This Possible?

    Yes! CARWHEELS welcomes all the ideas. Send us your design Photos and Fitment Data (Absolutely anything, PCD, Center Bore, Offset, Finishes, and even spoke design can all be altered.), then we will make it come to life.

  • What Makes CAR Wheel Different From Other Forged Wheels?

    This is one of the questions we get asked the most and it's one of the most important; the answer is both simple and complex. The simple answer is, "To create the best you must start with the best". What this really means is at every step, we don't cut corners and are continually trying to improve our materials, processes, facility and team to make sure it stays that way. We start with extremely talented people to design and engineer every CARWHEELS from sketch to testing, programming and prototyping.

    From there, only the best materials are used from our forgings, assembly hardware and powder coats. From there our wheels move to a hand washing process that again shows the care and attention to detail needed to produce our finishes. It then moves to our in-house powder coat process which produces astonishing yet durable colors that complement even the most exclusive vehicles in the world. If it's a 3-Piece wheel, there's still more to do. After powder coating, a 3-Piece wheel needs to be assembled, sealed and checked for runout (making sure the wheel is perfectly round).

  • What Materials Are Your Wheels Made of?

    All our wheels are made of heat-treated aerospace-grade 6061-T6 forged aluminum alloy to provide the best strength to weight ratio. It allows us to create more sophisticated designs while maintaining a higher degree of structural integrity than other wheels.

  • How Long Do CAR Wheels Take To Produce?

    Lead times range based on multiple factors.

    There's an estimated 3 to 5 weeks (monoblock) and 4-6 weeks (2/3 piece wheels) between the moment your order and 3D visual is confirmed till the wheel boxes reach your door.

    In some cases, they may take longer if an unforeseen occurance happens such as an inoperable machine, supplier issues or a sudden increase in orders.

  • Do You Ship Worldwide?
