  • One Piece Wheels
    The casting of wheels is the process of getting molten aluminium inside a mold to form a wheel. This can be accomplished in many different ways, yet isn´t as simple as it sounds. But with attention to detail can yield great results. This is the most common type of aluminium wheels.

    Casting
    This is the process of pouring molten aluminium inside a molt to form a wheel. While some manufacturers simply use Earth´s gravity to pour the molten aluminium, others employ pressure systems to either inject or suck the molten aluminium into a cast. Once the wheel has been molded, it is then removed from the cast and finished.

    Spun-Rim, Flow-Forming Or Rim Rolling Technology
    This process begins with a low-pressure type of casting. A special machine then spins the initial casting, heats the outer portion and uses steel rollers pressed against the rim area to pull the rim to its determined width and shape. This process yields a rim area similar in strength to a forged wheel, yet not as costly. Some OEM high-performance or limited production vehicles utilize special wheels with this type of technology, resulting in a light, strong wheel at a reasonable cost.

    Forged Wheels
    Forging is the process of forcing a solid billet of aluminium between the forging dies under an extreme amount of pressure. This extracts unwanted elements, making the metal less porous and changes the metal´s grain flow into the shape of the wheel, making it stronger than cast or machined metal parts. It is also very light. However, the process and equipment comes at a high cost.
