Radurra is Italian for Clear


The creator and patent holder of "the clear wheel" Doug McGoon and Forgiato have combined to turn this idea into a real drivable wheel.

In 2006 we proudly produced and introduced "The Clear Wheel" called Radurra for cars and motorcycles.

Again we return to our roots of jewelry manufacturing. A technique known as bezel setting which only master diamond setters can know, is where the diamonds are just slightly larger than the bezel they are set into, and held in place by pressure. Understanding this, we put the same care and consideration towards the Radurra as we would towards a fine watch.
By eliminating the alloy center of a three piece forged wheel and setting into its place a hard coated polycarbonate center with a glass-like finish we achieve an amazing and stunning look, with a finished product that looks too good to be a wheel. Much the same way the diamond is set into a bezel setting, the polycarbonate center is set into the forged aluminum hoops with precision machining and a jeweler's touch... the end result is a wheel that is strong, safe and beautiful.
Now show off your high performance brakes and suspension on your high-end car or motorcycle. The same way you would add diamonds to your platinum watch, add the Radurra to your "platinum" car or custom chopper. With a vast range of color and finish options, your Radurra is sure to be as individual as yourself or your clientele.

The Radurra is currently available in twenty and twenty-two inch, and are custom built on order for your car or motorcycle.


The same way all Forgiato Wheels are custom built by master craftsmen.
(More sizes available soon)


Technical Data
The center is 1.5 or 2" polycarbonate, chemical hard coated both sides.

Weight 20" - 27 lbs, and 22" - 38 lbs (complete wheel weight)

All other parts of the wheel are forged 6061t aluminum
(Inner and outer hoops and Hub center)

SAE tested, certified and passed Impact, cornering and radial tests.

Now in production, average delivery time is 6-8 weeks.

Suggested retail is $5000.00 per wheel

There was a maloo at motorvation with one similar on whilst on show, but the real rim was in the back, once the show was over and the car had to be moved the other rim was put back on and the clear rim was put away, it was purely for show to show off the brake setup.
