"Discovering the Differences between Cast and Forged Wheels"
The primary difference between cast wheels and forged wheels lies in the manufacturing process. Cast wheels are created through a molding process, whereby molten alloy is poured into a mold and cooled until hardened. Forged wheels, on the other hand, are formed by manipulating heated blocks of aluminum under immense pressure to form a wheel shape.
Forged wheels possess a more uniform and ultra-dense grain structure when compared to cast wheels, which are more likely to contain areas of high porosity. As a result, forged wheels exhibit increased strength and rigidity relative to their cast counterparts, providing enhanced performance and durability in challenging driving conditions.
The process of forging is expensive compared to casting but you get a product that is going to keep you safer due to it's excellent resistance to deformation that cast wheels are prone to. We hope that we made your choice a little easier.
