RAYS Volk Racing TE37 SL (Super Lap)
New for April 2010. The new standard.
19 inch also now available.
Volk Racing TE37 SL are a new version of the long selling 1996 released 6 spoke, 1 piece Forged Alloy TE37 wheels from RAYS. They have been shaved and stregthened in certain areas and re-designed for top level racing and sports use and comfortably cope with the stresses of today's latest high grip tyres.
These are the newest incarnation from Rays wheels for the ultimate performance leading wheel on offer. "SL" naming is derived from the Super Lap time attack battles currently taking place. This wheel will be used in the World Super Lap Battle series by the R-Magic RX7 among others and is set to become the ultimate top level wheel.
400 gram weight loss was successfully achieved on the 18x10.5 size using the latest technology and mold form tooling while maintaining the same original strength and rigidiy as our current TE37 line-up. Strictly catered to the racing community not to mention the stoic design appeal.
These wheels are becomming incredibly popular so Rays have updated many sizes.
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 most Japanese vehicles
in 17" and 19" sizes. (Evo, Sti, RX-7, GT-R34, 350Z) and selected European vehicles (BMW etc)
Wheels are available in Pressed Graphite as standard. Finished with a black clear coat. The rim flange and center section including the mounting holes have been diamond cut for a machined finish after the initial paint process. This leaves a lightweight impression and visual appeal. They are supplied with the optional aggressive RED Volk Racing RAYS logo on one spoke and the Super Lap designation logo on the rim.
NOTE** center caps cannot be used with these wheels.
