The VR-501BL combines our distinct and innovative design methods with the busy and rugged styling of traditional truck wheels. Our engineers have utilized the design elements to create one of the lightest 17" flow forged wheels available for on and off road use.
- DESIGN - Distinct and innovative design methods, utilization of back-pad pocketing to reduce wheel weight.
- FLOW FORGED TECHNOLOGY - Constructed using flow forged technology for a stronger and lighter wheel.
- WARRANTY - Our wheels come with a lifetime warranty against manufacturer and structural defects.
Our lightweight technology produces wheels that are lighter in weight compared to a conventional cast construction, yet substantially stronger. The majority of surplus weight can be shaved by the use of less but stronger aluminum. In addition, we meticulously reduce the weight of the wheel utilizing back-pad pocketing as well as front and rear spoke pocketing.
The flow forging process we use creates very lightweight wheels compared to the competition. In the end, you end up with a wheel capable of handling higher load ratings than a cast wheel. With a flow forged wheel, you save about 25% weight compared to a cast wheel of the same size and spec. Lighter weight wheels equals reduced unsprung and rotational mass.
Example: A competitors 17x9 cast wheel weights in at about 38.5 lbs, while our similar spec 17x9 flow forged wheel weighs in at about 27.6 lbs. That's almost at 11 lbs difference!
