FlowForm is a unique casting and forming process that results in a wheel that is similar in strength to that of a forged wheel. The wheel is low pressure cast in aluminum and is rapidly cooled to enhance its elastic strength and durability. The cast wheel is then placed in a special flow forming tool where rollers press against the barrel to pull the rim into its final width and shape. This “stretching” process improves the grain structure of the aluminum making the wheel much stronger and lighter than a standard cast aluminum wheel.
