In general, is a monoblock stronger than a multi-piece wheel?

Assuming that the build qualities are the same like using the same forgings, would a monoblock from say HRE be stronger than a 3-piece from HRE? I would think that the fasteners and the spun rim would be the weak point for the 3-piece making it not quite as strong as a monoblock.

I'm Sure It's Possible to Achieve Equal Strength

It's really a matter of material properties and putting enough material in the right places. All things being equal (material properties, design quality, assembly quality), I would expect multi-piece wheels to be heavier than mono blocks at the same strength level. The fasteners and attachment provisions for the fasteners would guarantee that. Also, with comparable manufacturing methods and controls, I would expect monoblock wheels to be more dimensionally accurate.

Mono-Bloc is stronger and alot lighter , depends on the wheel design and car its for? " because of the offsets and back pads.
