Talk about great timing! Our friends at AEROLARRI are introducing their newest true forged wheel design called the TeraLaunch for the C8 Corvette and we are excited to be among the first to share them with you as a Wheels Wednesday feature.
Having previously featured their knockout Z06Z forged wheel, we are not only digging these innovative CAD-based designs that provide an exotic look for America’s Favorite Sports Car, but we are also equally impressed by the company’s aggressive pricing structure that finally makes forged wheels affordable.
Today, AEROLARRI is introducing its new TeraLaunch wheel from their patent-pending Structure Staggered line of forged wheels. Simply put, Structure Staggered wheels add more ‘structures’ to the face of the wheel as part of the overall design. Unlike traditional staggered wheels where only the widths are different, these structures provide help for the increased lateral and torsional demands on the rear wheels of high-performance vehicles like the C8 Corvette, which now has some 60% of the mid-engine’s weight on the rear tires.
This also compliments extreme rear-wheel widths like AEROLARRI’s 12.5″ wide rears and even the 21×13″ wide rears for the C8 and other cars. While these are premium width options, CorvetteBlogger readers are offered $100 off either of these two width options with Promo Code WIDE611. As it expires this Friday 6/11, so don’t delay!
Look closely, as the front and rear TeraLaunch wheels each have a similar yet distinctly-different design. The rear wheels are showing additional touchpoints to the face of the wheel for additional support. It’s an interesting look as seen here on this Rapid Blue C8 Convertible owned by Noel Alsbrook of Oklahoma. His wheels are finished in Graphene Glaze Polished and are sized 20×9.5 in the front and 21×12.5 in the rears. The wider wheels put more rubber to the road, and so he is now riding on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires sized 255/30-ZR20 fronts and 325/25-ZR21 rears.
AEROLARRI true-forged monoblocks are available with multiple finishes and colors. Buyers can choose between one of the included colors as well as a large number of premium colors and finishes for an additional fee. And since we’ve mentioned how good the price is, let’s just go ahead and tell you right now. You can get the AEROLARRI TeraLaunch wheels starting at $1,988 per set plus shipping.
As part of their exciting launch for this new wheel, AEROLARRI is offering CorvetteBlogger readers these exclusive offers! Order any of the standard-sized wheels and use Promo Code FIFTYOFF611 to save $50 per set. If you want to go with AEROLARRI’s wide sizes, save an additional $100 off all premium 12.5 and even the 21×13 sets using the Promo Code WIDE611, or you can receive free center cap lettering with Promo Code CAPCOLOR611. That’s a $99 value. This introductory offer is only good through Friday (6/11) so act fast to get in on this introductory deal.
Unlike GM’s cast-aluminum wheels for the C8 Corvette, AEROLARRI’s forged monoblock wheels are CNC milled from a solid block of aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum. While most wheel companies may charge from $6,000 to $12,000 for custom build-to-order forged wheels, AEROLARRI is able to do them for a fraction of that price. You can check out their website to see videos showing CNC milling in action.
The TeraLaunch wheels are available in multiple sizes and widths and AEROLARRI’s “Easy Buy” for the C8 Corvette makes it easy for you to order the perfect wheels. AEROLARRI wheels are limited to just 299 sets and each set is individually numbered. You can customize the center cap engraving color to match your Corvette, or you can keep it the same color as the wheel. Standard C8 Corvette wheel caps will also fit AEROLARRI wheels.
As is standard with custom made-to-order forged wheels, the time from placing your order to receiving them is generally 7+ weeks. You’ll receive updates along the way including photos once they have been completed. Once completed, they are boxed and cargo shipped to the USA.
AEROLARRI true forged TeraLaunch wheels will make your C8 Corvette stand out from the crowd and you won’t have to break the bank for real forged wheels. CorvetteBlogger readers save $50 per set on standard sized wheels using Promo Code FIFTYOFF611, or save $100 on premium-width 12.5 and 21x13s using Promo Code WIDE611, or receive free center car lettering, a $99 value, with Promo Code CAPCOLOR611.
Finally, someone has come along and reinvented the way custom forged wheels should be sold! Visit aerolarri.com for more details. These exclusive offers from AEROLARRI end on Friday, June 11th, so don’t delay!
You can see AEROLARRI’s TeraLaunch forged wheels on Noel’s Rapid Blue C8 Corvette Convertible this Saturday at the NCCO’s Corvettes at the Grand, held at the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
