Tradition and modernism often lie close to each other. Sometimes they are even combined in one, ultimate product. With the AEZ Forged Series, AEZ has entered the premium class of light alloy wheels. The AEZ Steam.forged is the first AEZ forged wheel with ECE approval, making it completely free of approval to the Tesla Motors S and X models.
Forged aluminium wheels have a long tradition. The automotive industry initiated first tests as early as in the 1930s. Ever since then, a lot has happened.
Forged alloy wheels have their origin in racing and motorsports. As reasons we can cite high stability, a very low weight and, as a result, perfect suitability for the sporty rider. This gives the forged wheel an advantage over cast alloy wheels, and despite higher costs many car owners get convinced because the forged wheel embodies ultimate refinement.
How are AEZ.forged rims made?
AEZ uses only the best ingredients for its forged rims. The base material is a 6061 aluminium casting alloy which is used predominantly in light-weight constructions for the aviation industry. Since the base material contains less than 1% silicon, as a result, the wheels are glossier than cast rims, a property which is further enhanced in the AEZ Steam.forged by a ceramic finish.
