Wire wheel finish
The rim and shell are polished to superior finish in special purpose machines. The hand polishing by highly skilled craftsmen compliments this. The nickel plating is done by the Dunlop method, in which a decorative bright nickel layer is plated over a strong inner semi-bright layer of nickel. The surface finish is enhanced by using technologically latest levelling brightness. To enhance the corrosion resistance, micro porous nickel plating is done prior to chrome plating.
All our chrome wire wheels are built with stainless steel spokes and nipples.
Every centre lock wire wheel comes with fitting instruction to assist in solving problems that are commonly encountered when balancing centre lock wire wheels on an electronic balancer.
Competition wire wheels
For running our competition wire wheels modifications on the front and rear wings will be necessary.
Painted wire wheels
Our painted wire wheels are primer coated by first using Cathodic Electrophoretic Technology. This increases the corrosion resistance to very high levels. An overcoat of silver grey resp. black follows this.
