Vivid Racing: Vorsteiner Flow Form Wheels

Vorsteiner has just released their new flow formed forged wheels available for the M3. Whats different about these wheels compared to the competition is that they receive them as precut blanks where they custom do the offset and powdercoat to meet your exact needs. The 1 piece forged wheel has a 1 week turnaround time if not instock with us. We can do just about any color you want for powdercoat.



The best part, $2800 for a set! Not a misprint!!!



For the car we have 19x9.5 and 19x11 or you can go up to 20x9 or 11.0 and 20x11. The 20" setup weighs only about 25lbs which is near on par with a full 1 piece forged monoblock for 3 times the price!



Have questions, want to order, just contact me direct. Click the banner or THIS LINK and see what the wheels look like on your car with our wheel app.

Since when did flow formed wheels mean they were forged?

Flow Formed Wheels are CAST by definition.

Sorry to be so blunt, I just wanted to make sure folks here remain informed and aren't lead astray by marketing jargon.

Spun-Rim, Flow-Forming or Rim Rolling Technology
This specialized process begins with a low pressure type of casting and uses a special machine that spins the initial casting, heats the outer portion of the casting and then uses steel rollers pressed against the rim area to pull the rim to its final width and shape. The combination of the heat, pressure and spinning create a rim area with the strength similar to a forged wheel without the high cost of the forging. Some of the special wheels produced for the O.E.M. high performance or limited production vehicles utilize this type of technology resulting in a light and strong wheel at a reasonable cost. O.Z. has used this technology for several years in their production of racing wheels for Formula One and Indy cars. O.Z.'s Formula HLT wheel for the aftermarket is an example of a wheel produced using spun rim technology.

Who really cares? Most of you younger folks need to realize that for daily driving, commuting with an occasional track day cast or forged will suffice. This is not debatable.

The only issue will be a slight price hike with forged but either wheel is quality, depending on maker.
