How do I purchase a set of BC Forged wheels?
First, we’d like to thank you for your interest and inquiry with BC Forged wheels.

How does the BC Forged wheel ordering process work?
If you would like to order a set of BC Forged wheels directly, please contact us via email at [email protected] or via phone at 386.872.3544, Ext. 1. When ordering directly, our sales team will discuss your vehicle and BC 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. We accept all major debit/credit cards. At this point, we will provide you with 2D cross-section profile drawings 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. All shipping is via UPS and all BC Forged wheel shipments are sent Signature Required. Standard transit time is 4 to 5 business days. As with any shipping service, issues can/may occur. If you experience any issues during the shipment of your wheels, please contact us via email at [email protected] or via phone at 386.872.3544, Ext. 1.
