AWE TUNING PARTNERS WITH FORGELINE, S5 DEV CAR LAUNCHES RELATIONSHIP
Jesse Kramer, Vice President of Marketing
June 6, 2012
AWE Tuning has chosen Forgeline Forged Alloy Wheels as its premium wheel partner to complement the company’s own manufactured brand of premium performance upgrades for German autos.
“We sought a wheel brand that not only had the pedigree and confidence brought from a history in motorsport, but also understood the lifestyle aspect of daily-driven performance vehicles. This, in conjunction with what we perceive to be one of the most ethical wheel brands in the business, made Forgeline a solid addition to the AWE Tuning performance catalog,” stated Jesse Kramer, AWE Tuning partner and Vice President of Marketing.
AWE Tuning will commence the relationship with its latest project car, the Samoa Orange 2013 Audi S5, which feature Forgeline VX3Cs, finished in Transparent Smoke. The wheels on the S5 are 20x10” ET30 with a 1.5” lip on the front, and 20x10” ET22 with a 2” lip on the back. The wheels weigh 24.5lbs per corner.
"Forgeline is committed to working with dealers and distributors who are able to deliver the best customer experience through service and technical expertise. When it comes to German automobiles, AWE Tuning is one of the best! AWE Tuning brings an impressive resume of German tuning and expertise to the table. We expect to see some impressive Forgeline fitments from them, and we're excited to be a part of it," said Steve Schardt, co-owner of Forgeline.
Forgeline Wheels will be sold through AWE Tuning’s consultative wheel process, which starts with a basic form that triggers contact from an AWE Tuning Forgeline Wheel Specialist, “ensuring that the Forgeline wheel chosen is a perfect fit every time, from both a use and fitment perspective,” said Kramer.
A full AWE Tuning S5 build thread featuring the Forgeline VX3Cs is expected within the first week of June 2013, and the vehicle will be featured at AWE Tuning’s Volkstreffen on June 8th 2013.
