Rimstock Plc has dramatically expanded it's forged alloy wheel production due to increased demand from the market place. One of Europe’s leaders in forged wheel production utilizing 3 and 5 axis machining centres to make any design possible.
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.
We now offer a versatile opportunity for car manufacturers and tuners to design and develop unique wheel styles, based on quantities as low as 100 pieces with little or no tooling expenditure.
Both form and function are well catered for, with virtually any design possible, many from existing tooling.
One of the most sought after issues has always been how to minimise the weight of the wheel and unsprung weight of the vehicle whilst maximising strength and durability, this is the answer modern manufacturer and tuners have been looking for!
