NOTE! Delivery until May 2008 will be delayed as these wheels are at the start of production!
These are a forged single monoblock aluminium wheel. They are made from the finest aircraft grade 6061 aluminium. Each part of the wheels is made by a process called hot forging. A solid piece of aluminium billet is heated and is shaped applying compressive force from a press.
The 1st forging process is performed with a pressure of 5,000 kg’s per cm2. In the 2nd forging process 3,500 kg’s are applied per cm2. The lip is also forged to 3,500 kilograms per cm2. Forging refines the grain structure and improves the physical properties of the metal. With the advanced RAYS design process the grain flow can be oriented in the direction of principal stresses encountered in actual use. Grain flow is the direction of the pattern that the crystals take during forging. Physical properties (such as strength, ductility and toughness) are much better in a forging than in the base metal, which has, crystals randomly oriented. The excess material left on the wheel is then machined off (to tolerance of 1/100 of a millimetre). Powder coating and clear coating is done by a special proprietary process to ensure long lasting quality and durability.
This is why forged wheels can be made much lighter and stronger than an equivalent cast wheel, as less material can be used for a much higher equivalent strength. Cheap wheels are gravity cast, and during this process microscopic air bubbles form in the casting, weakening the structure further over the original material.
These wheels are available in 5 stud fitments in limited widths, offsets and diameters to suit most larger Japanese sports cars.
Formula Silver is the standard finish for these wheels and R57GT wheels are available in 20" diameter only.
These wheels come with centre caps so all thats needed to finish these excellent wheels off are some matching RAYS locking wheel nuts. Now available in store!
Prices are per wheel, so you will need input the correct quantity required. This also allows you to replace damaged wheels, or buy a matching spare if you wish. If you wish to buy different width or diameter wheels front and rear, please select these, and add a pair of each to your shopping basket. We will not be beaten on price on R57GTs.
