A cast rim is a rim made from cast metal, usually from an aluminium alloy. Unlike steel rims, which are made from cut sheet metal, a cast rim is more complex to produce and has certain advantages over steel rims.
Cast rims are generally lighter than steel rims, which reduces the weight of the vehicle and thus improves fuel economy. These wheels can also be available in a wider range of designs and sizes to enhance the look and performance of the vehicle.
In addition, cast rims can offer better handling and driving properties due to their high strength and stiffness. They are also more resistant to corrosion and damage caused by road conditions such as potholes.
A flux-formed rim is manufactured using a special manufacturing process that involves rotating an aluminium preform under high pressure and temperature while it is drawn through a special mould. This process produces a rim with a very thick outer layer and a thinner inner layer, which gives the rim high strength and stiffness.
The process of manufacturing flux-formed rims, also known as "spin forming", is a combination of casting and forging. By rotating the rim disc and stretching it, the aluminium is compacted and strengthened, resulting in a very strong and light rim.
Flux-formed rims have certain advantages over traditional cast or forged rims. These are generally lighter than cast wheels and cheaper than forged wheels, while offering similar strength and performance benefits.
Due to their strength, stiffness and durability, flux-formed rims are often used in motorsport, but they are also a popular choice for road vehicles, as they improve the performance and look of the vehicle.
A forged rim is a rim made from forged aluminium. Compared to traditional cast wheels, forged wheels are generally lighter and stronger. They are often used in racing and sports cars to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle and improve its performance.
The use of forged wheels also improves the braking performance of the vehicle, as they have better heat dissipation and greater stiffness. However, forged wheels are generally more expensive than traditional cast wheels.
Lighter rims have a positive effect on performance (acceleration) and fuel consumption. They provide a more pleasant driving experience, whereas heavy rims often have a higher load capacity.
A rear spoke milling is a special rim treatment that removes material from the rear (i.e. inside) spoke areas to reduce the weight of the rim.
By removing material from the back of the spokes, it is possible to reduce the weight of the rim without compromising its strength. This results in better acceleration and driving dynamics, which is particularly important for sports cars and racing cars.
The offset (ET) indicates in millimetres how far the rim mounting plate is from the centre of the rim on the car. The higher the ET, the further the wheel is inside the wheel housing.
The width of the rim is indicated in inches. The letter J indicates the type of rim flange.
Winter rims have a painted surface that is resistant to road salt and weathering and thus protects against corrosion.
