Yokohama Tyre Company has been designing original wheels since 1974. Their racing heritage flows into their road wheels from many wins in Super Taikyu and Formula races. Their ranges are divided into street, race and luxury wheel brands. Advan Racing is the race focussed wheel range.
Advan Racing RZ-DF.
New for 2010! 19" Available NOW. 18" models coming in August.
D means DEEP up to 72.5mm!
F means Mould Formed Forged
The RZ-DF wheel is a one piece wheel with a 10 spoke design that is very similar to that of the RZ wheels from Advan. The spokes are actually grouped as pairs although this is hard to see at first glance. They are based on the deeply curved “GTR design” of the RZ but are available with the deep dish rim right across the range.
These use the AVS brand's larger wheel forging technology to keep weight down and strength up for larger wheels and those currently taking a pounding on the track.
The RZ-DF has added strength and ultra-lightweight characteristics of a true forged rim with the new mould form forging techniques. These mold form forging processes are combined with rim spinning technology to produce something special. Each wheel is molded into shape under 8000tonnes of maximum pressure to create a high density forged wheel.
Between the rim and the spokes is a raised section, that contains the Advan Racing Logo. This differs from the RZ as the after painting process is complete this logo is NOT shaved to expose the metal of the rim and features a little less detail as the forging process cannot be as delicate.
With twin 5 or 10 spokes it is easy for the designers to create a structurally rigid rim and therefore allows the spokes to be extremely thin guaranteeing the same lightweight characteristics as the RS wheel.
There are 3 faces depending on size resulting in rim depths of Standard Deep 37.5mm, Medium Deep 56.5mm and Extra Deep 72.5mm.
Wheels are to be available in 18 and 19inch designs in common offsets to suit most Japanese cars.
For now only the 19" rims is available. Euro Fitment also to come.
Three colours are available although these offerings differ amoung sizing.
19" wheels come in Matt Black at a discounted base price and the Machined Hyper Black is the premium normal colour.
The other sizes will see the Hyper Silver machined colour (available at premium cost).
