This process forges out the barrel of the wheel at high pressure while the wheel is being spun at high speeds
Huntington Beach, CA (Vocus) April 22, 2010
TSW Custom Alloy Wheels, manufacturer of the largest selection of custom one piece alloy wheels in the world, introduces the highly anticipated rotary forged face wheel, the Nurburgring. This aftermarket alloy wheel is named after one of the most storied tracks known to racing, the Nurburgring, widely known as one of the toughest and most dangerous tracks in the world.
Much like the track, the Nurburgring wheel exudes prowess and strength with its sleek spokes. This wheel is engineered using the advanced rotary forging process. “This process forges out the barrel of the wheel at high pressure while the wheel is being spun at high speeds,” says Terence Scheckter, president of TSW Alloy Wheels. “This process greatly enhances the strength of the wheel and reduces the weight. Most importantly, the rotary forging reduces the weight in the most critical part of the wheel- the barrel, and thus improves acceleration and braking.” Increased wheel strength and less weight enables the Nurburgring to have the muscle needed to tame the curves of the Nurburgring track, and everyday roads.
The Nurburgring custom wheel comes available in an aggressive matte gunmetal, gunmetal with a mirror cut face and matte bronze. Use the TSW Wheel configurator on the TSW website http://www.tswalloywheels.com/tsw_configurator/ to view this wheel on your car or truck.
The alloy wheels are built in staggered applications to allow enthusiasts the opportunity to run wider wheels on the back of their cars and narrower wheels on the front. The Nurburgring is available in an array of staggered sizes: 17x7.5, 17x8, 17x8.5, 17x9, 18x8, 18x8.5, 18x9, 18x9.5, 18x10, 18x10.5, 19x8, 19x8.5, 19x9, 19x9.5, 19x10, 19x10.5, 20x8.5, 20x9, 20x9.5, 20x10, 20x10.5 and 20x11. Those in the market for aftermarket wheels can view the TSW on line wheels application guide to see if the wheel fits their car or truck or they can call a TSW aftermarket wheels dealer.
