These are the Forgeline TA3p, created by myself and Frank from Prodigy Customs. Frank approached Dave at Forgeline about creating a true 3-piece forged wheel modeled after 2nd-gen snowflakes, as he and I were both building pretty serious TAs at the time and had been working together to find a way to get a snowflake-style wheel that could stand up to track duty. To my knowledge, only four sets were made; Frank had a set cut for his project "empty nest":

and another set for their fourth gen:

I picked up the third set:

And Schwartz Performance put the fourth set on their "Full Force Trans Am" build:

Sadly, The late 2nd gen pro-touring movement is still in its infancy, and the market just wasn't there for a 19", three-piece wheel to sell well. Or...at all. Forgeline has since discontinued the wheel.
