Rimstock has dramatically expanded it's forged alloy wheel production in recent years due to increased demand from the marketplace. One of the most sought after issues has always been how to minimise the weight of a wheel and unsprung weight of the vehicle whilst maximising strength and durability. This is the answer modern manufacturers and tuners have been looking for.
Reducing unsprung weight has a dramatic influence on the dynamics and performance of any vehicle. The higher the mass, the more energy is required to rotate and decelerate the wheel and tyre.
With forged aluminium, weight saving in excess of 30% can be achieved compared to similar designs of cast wheels whilst achieving even greater stiffness in the component. Therefore, significant weight reduction achieved through the research and development of a forged wheel programme can put a whole new light on the direct benefits to acceleration, handling, braking and suspension wear and tear.
OEM's choose Rimstock as a supply source for their forged alloy wheel requirements because the company has all the key attributes required in today's environment.
