Jlevi SW | Vorsteiner 3 Piece Forged Wheel Concept

We are proud to preview the latest CAD renderings of the newest addition to Vorsteiner's 3 Piece Forged Wheel Line. These are built and designed using the same techniques as their current V-3XX series and feature custom built specifications for your vehicle and design requirements.

Standard Features:
-T6-6061 Forged Centers
-Heat Treated T6-6061 Forged Barrels - do not accept inferior brands, which use 5051 or 5052 barrels
-Double-Flanged Barrels for strength, integrity, and superior appearance
-Fitments for Big Brake Kits or Maximum Lip Size
-Weights as low as 22-24 pounds

Wheel Specific Features:
-9 Spoke Design
-3-Piece Hidden Hardware



This concept has undergone and passed Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure proper strength and structural rigidity.

These wheels are in the final design stages so ordering is not available currently but this is intended as a preview to give you an idea of what is to come.

Wow these look very nice. The weight seems right there with the stock wheels, so performance won't be hampered. Good stuff.
