If you are looking for aftermarket wheels, you have a lot of choices to consider. In fact, it can be quite daunting when you check out a variety of wheel manufacturers. However, many people are choosing Vossen wheels for a number of reasons and here is why.
Vossen wheels have a clean and fresh look, and this is very appealing to many people. You know you are getting a top quality wheel and there’s no need for a lot of extras like spinners and unusual designs. Take the CV3 models for example. They feature classic 5 wide spokes and are available in black machined, silver machined, and graphite face finishes. You also can choose custom color combinations for your wheels. Plus, they are created with a low pressure casting method.
Why Low Pressure Casting?
Today’s aftermarket cast wheels are usually made with gravity casting or low pressure casting. So what’s the difference between the two? Let’s take a look at gravity casting first.
Gravity casting is quite simple. Molds are created and molten metal is poured into the molds. The molds are filled by the process of liquid flowing downhill (gravity). Before the filling process, the molds are pre-heated and any cores are also added.
Low Pressure Casting
With the low pressure method, molten metal is forced into the molds with low pressure gas. The molds are filled in a completely opposite way of gravity casting, because they are above the molten metal. Pressure is introduced into the chamber and this causes the liquid metal to flow upward through a tube and into the molds. Here are the benefits:
- Increased quality over gravity methods
- Dimensional stability
- Higher production yields
- Lower cost to the consumer for quality wheels
Vossen Wheels Mean Quality
Vossen has built a reputation by standing behind their wheels. In fact, they offer a lifetime warranty on the structure. The finish is guaranteed for a full five years. As long as the wheels have been properly installed and not subject to abnormal wear or abuse, Vossen will replace or refinish your wheels for no charge.
