The Volk TE037 DURA wheel adopts a material called ultra-super duralumin, which is called the strongest among aluminum alloys.
RAYS original design By using the technology of die fabrication method, by shaping without destroying the flow line (flow of metallic structure), we demonstrate the original strength of super ultra super duralumin.
Like the GT 500 2017 model newly adopted in the SUPER GT 500 class race, the design of the Volk TE037 DURA inherits the six spokes of RAYS tradition, optimized for strength and light weight.
The vertical wall of the spoke side has succeeded in weight saving of 300 g by side pocket hole processing which actively performs the thinning processing applied to the racing wheel by machining and further drills a hole in the vertical wall from it. This side pocket hole is derived by a simulator, each shape is processed for each part with optimum shape processing, and the influence on the strength and rigidity of the wheel is minimized.
For the finish, we set up Brightening Metal Dark Color, developed with paint manufacturers and repeated research, and expressed the texture that can be called ultra-metallic tones while being painted.
Optional Colors are available at additional cost.
