Vossen VFS5 05-14 Mustang
A new staple in the Vossen VF Series, the VFS-5 is a split five-spoke design that, like the rest of the VF Series, employs advanced flow forming technology to produce a lighter and stronger barrel. The result is a perfect blend between the affordability of a cast wheel and the strength and performance of a forged wheel.
The flow forming process maintains the integrity of the design while improving grain-structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger, lighter, and thinner forged-like rim barrel. Flow forming is the answer to the market’s demand for lightweight wheels that are more durable and enhance overall vehicle driving performance.
Heat and coating is applied to the flow-forming drum. Cast wheel is mounted on the drum and ready to be formed.
Pressure is applied to the rim barrel. Specially designated hydraulic rollers are used to stretch the wheel by applying pressure to the rim barrel.
The wheels’ properties are compressed and stretched to achieve the desired width.
Stretching results in an improved grain-structure of the aluminum, which makes for a stronger, thinner, and lighter forged-like rim barrel. The final product is more durable on impact and enhances overall vehicle performance.
