Where ADV.1 wheels come to life...

Hey Guys,

Thought I would share pictures from a visit to the factory that makes these wheels possible.

If you have a pending order you may be able to spot your wheels in there. The PO #'s are written on most of the wheels.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for this photoshoot! It seems like a well run operation.

I realize this may be a stupid question, but are all of these designs DOT approved?

So they are made at the MHT plant or are they MHT wheels?

They are made at the MHT plant and designed by ADV.1

Many newer companies go this route because these machines pictured are a pretty penny.

From my knowledge, DOT only has dimensional requirements on wheels. Currently in the U.S. there is no mandatory wheel performance/strength testing.

JWL/VIA testing is what really seperates the men from the boys. Very few companies in the US fully test to these specs. BBS does I know and the RAC wheel is also.

Guys just got word that ADv.1 will start getting their wheels TUV certified as they are in the process of opening up a store in Germany.

I will keep you informed on the progress.
