Custom Rim 411 – Part 3 – Forging
There are two different processes used to make wheels, casting and forging! In general the forged wheels are stronger and lighter than cast wheels.
With Forging, aluminum billets are pressed into dies under extreme pressure, which shape the billet into the wheel. That wheel then goes through a machining – finishing process like the cast wheel. Since the forged aluminum is stronger less can be used without sacrificing structural integrity, which result in a lighter wheel.
With Forging it is hard to create curved spokes and intricate wheel center designs. So you will notice that most forged wheels have straight, flat spokes. Forged wheels usually cost more and weight less.
