Vossen VFS1 05-14 Mustang
Vossen is proud to introduce the VF/Series manufactured with advanced flow forming technology, a unique approach to wheel manufacturing.
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.
flow forming process
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.
