The World's Lightest Wheels.
Updated: Aug 27, 2020
Litespeed Racing is proud to design, engineer and manufacture some of the world's lightest wheels for both street car and race car applications. Starting at only 15 pounds for 19 inch, our RS5 forged magnesium monoblock wheel is even lighter than some of the most celebrated lightweight wheels. Our RS5 style is lighter than the likes of the HRE R101LW and BBS FI-R and even lighter than the Carbon Revolution full carbon fiber C9. Litespeed Racing offers it all: Lightweight, strong, race proven, custom built and great looking. For more information on actual wheel weights, click here. Keep reading below or contact us for more information regarding ordering.
Each Litespeed Racing wheel is custom made with custom size, offset, color, tailed brake clearance , and available in center lock, 5 lug, 6 lug and 4 lug applications. Each wheel can be either monoblock or 3 piece and can be made from our proprietary ultra lightweight forged magnesium, forged aluminum or built as a 2 piece with solid real carbon fiber barrels from Dymag. Each wheel can also be custom made with real carbon fiber inlays or overlays. Whether it's an 8 second 1/4 mile Audi TTRS, a Pikes Peak race Truck or an exotic like a Lamborghini , Mclaren , Porsche or Ferrari , Litespeed Racing can build wheels to fit it.

Maybe you have never heard of Litespeed Racing. That is because for years we have been quietly making wheels for other bigger wheel brands. Also because in a way our strength is our weakness ; we have focused so much on engineering and advanced material research in an effort to produce the absolute lightest wheels possible, that we have somewhat overlooked marketing and promotions. Despite the lack of marketing, some heavy hitters in the industry have taken notice!
In 2019 Toyota Motors USA contacted us to see if we could build a custom set of lightweight wheels for their halo show car, the GR Supra Hyper Boost edition that would be showcased at all the major car shows, from SEMA to Los Angeles International Autoshow , from New York to Detroit, to Chicago and more. Toyota was so impressed with Litespeed Racing that they also asked us to build the full carbon fiber widebody kit for the car.
Lightweight wheels can help to improve acceleration, braking, cornering and fuel economy. But building wheels that are lightweight is not our only priority. Each wheel must also be strong, with minimal deflection and each wheel must last! Litespeed Racing does vigorous testing, starting with FEA computer simulations, then followed by SAE laboratory testing and followed by real world street and track testing. Litespeed Racing wheels are track proven and have been used on the Optima Battery Ultimate Street Car Challenge GT class winner as well as used on a number of record setting half mile race cars, like the Pure Turbos' BMW M3 and Audi TTRS.
At Litespeed Racing we take bespoke performance wheels to the next level. We understand that you have a lot of choices when purchasing forged wheels, so we dedicate our time, energy and manufacturing resources to ensure that your wheels meet and exceed your expectations. For example our customer wanted a set of VS10 wheels with real forged composites carbon fiber inlays to perfectly match his Mansory forged carbon aero kit on his Mclaren 720s. It may seem easy enough, but in reality it was any but easy. The end result of uncountable man hours worth of prep, lay up and finishing is a one of a kind; only Mclaren in the world with real forged carbon matching wheels and aero kit.
The tuning professionals over at Gintani wanted a set of light weight, but strong wheels for their twin turbo Lamborghini Huracan shop car, and called us to see what we could do. We fitted their Huracan with a set of GT10 three piece race ready wheels that easily stood up to all of the abuse that their ultra high horse power, fire breathing bull could dish out.
Litespeed Racing offers a full collection of wheel designs, and each design is available as either monoblock or 3 piece. All Litespeed Racing wheels are fully forged for the ultimate in strength and performance. Our most popular styles are the RS5 and RS5 track spec, the VS10, VR5 and GT10 styles.
