VOSSEN WHEELS UNVEILS THE VFS-1, THE NEWEST ADDITION TO THE VF/SERIES, MANUFACTURED WITH ADVANCED FLOW FORMING TECHNOLOGY.
The flow forming process maintains the integrity of the design of these Vossen VFS-1 matte graphite wheels, while also improving the grain-structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger, lighter, and considerably thinner forged-like rim barrel. Flow forming is the response to our market?s demand for lightweight wheels that are more durable and enhance the overall vehicle driving experience.
Automobile enthusiasts desire a wheel that is aesthetically appealing and built for form and function. The process of creating the best flow formed wheel involves a mix of complex engineering and high-grade technology. A balanced combination of heat and pressure upon the rim barrel alters the mechanical properties of the wheel to get the desired effect: increased strength and weight reduction of up to 15 percent.
As the lightest wheel in the entire Vossen line-up, the VFS-1 is built for performance, and designed with sophistication. Its design is inspired by the 5 mesh forged wheel, which debuted at SEMA 2012 on our flag-ship Ferrari 458 Italia. It is offered in our signature matte graphite as well as, our new, silver brushed finish.
Our new VFS-1 made with flow forming technology allows us to offer a variety of new widths. The VFS-1 are available in a 20? and 22? diameter with a width range of 8.5? all the way to 12?. We will be offering three concave design profiles in 20? ? flat, mid and deep. These new width options will provide more fitment flexibility and versatility, along with a stronger and lighter wheel.
