RAYS Volk Racing (VR Dot) G2
New for 2009.
VR. G2 are 6 spoke, 1 piece Forged Alloy wheels from RAYS. They are designed for Racing and Sports use.
These are the newest generation from Rays wheels and are the latest performance leading wheel on offer. "VR." naming is derived from the Volk Racing brand. A version of this wheel will be used in the American LeMans Series by BMW. They are also being pioneered by Mines on their GT-R35 and other leading Tuners in Japan.
They feature a recessed VR logo on one spoke and the VR.G2 logo on the rim. Heat vent holes are also features near the nut holes to allow less stresss from high brake temperatures.
These are a forged one piece aluminium wheel. They are made from the finest aircraft grade 6061 aluminium. The wheels are 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 most common offsets and PCD's to fit larger Japanese and European vehicles in 19"~20” Sizes. (GT-R, Z, BMW etc)
New release are offered in 16" and 18" sizes for more common tuning vehicles.
19" Version is a dished rim S1,2,3-L1,2 similar to the RE-30 while the 20" Version is a lesser dished rim with a FACE1 and FACE 2 designs where the centre bore dictates the depth.
16 and 18" Versions also feature FACE1~ Deep Dished FACE3 designs similar to the 20" design where the centre bore dictates the depth rather than the rim.
Wheels are available in Matt Black as standard. Formula Silver is available at an added cost.
Special VR center caps are included with these wheels featuring "RAYS Volk Racing Forged Wheel" wording.
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 G2s!
If you need advice on what sizes are suitable for your car, please don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or e-mail and we will advise you on what size wheels will suit your car best. We supply ALL RAYS wheels at discounted prices. Please enquire if the wheel you want is not listed.
