Unveiling the Secrets of Forged Wheels: A Beginner’s Guide

Custom wheels are not just about getting from A to B – they are about making heads turn!

With a sea of choices out there, it is no wonder car enthusiasts are spoilt for style. But when it comes to top-notch quality and endless personalization, one type reigns supreme: K7 forged wheels. These don’t just look good, they are built to perform.

This article explains all about forged wheels – what they are made of and why they are so good. This article further explains why K7 Forged is the best place to procure custom, superior-quality forged wheels in the UAE.

Why is it called “Forged”?

Forged wheels are like the gold standard of car wheel artisanship. And if you are into customizing your ride, these wheels, which are сonstruсteԁ with premium-grade aluminum alloy have got you covered with all their perks. They often have a single-piece aluminum alloy wheel design. With these wheels, you also get unrivaled strength and toughness for maximum on and off-road performance. 

The reason why they are known as “forged” is that the aluminum is formed into the shape of the wheel rims by pressing or hammering it. BBS Wheels first introduced mold-forged wheels back in 1983. Then, as CNC machines got more precise, machine-forged wheels hit the market and became popular among big wheel makers. These wheels are a top pick for those looking to improve the appearance and functionality of their car.

How are Forged Wheels made?

Let’s dive into making of forged wheels. It begins from a raw block of 6061-T6 aluminum. This high-grade aluminum is chosen due to its durability and malleability. 

The block is heated at an extreme temperature and pressured hard enough, forging the aluminum in the required shape. This is an important step as it not only forms the wheel in its initial shape but also arranges the grain structure of the alloy. There are no porosity or shrinkage possibilities ensuring adequate strength. 

The wheels are then machined thoroughly using a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine. The CNC machines carve the wheel’s profile, barrel, spokes, center bore, lug holes, and other design details. Despite the advanced technology, this machining is very laborious and time-consuming. Each wheel can take 8-10 hours.

After machining, the wheels are hand and machine-cleaned to make the surface look up to the mark. Then, the wheels are finished and painted by a skilled worker which enhances the beauty of the wheels and also serves as a coating guard to ensure longevity.

Benefits of Forged Wheels

Premium Quality Wheels

The forging process eliminates imperfections commonly found in cast wheels. This ensures superior strength and structural integrity. This also translates to enhanced safety and performance on the road, making these wheels the preferred choice for drivers.

Moreover, because these wheels are made with a finer grain structure than casted wheels, it offers them more strength. As a result, they can withstand more load and stress without deforming or cracking, even under harsh driving conditions of Dubai terrain.

Customization Options

Another advantage of using these wheels is that they offer many customization possibilities. Drivers can choose from various designs, allowing them to design the perfect wheelset that complements their vehicle and reflects their personality. 

For example, K7 Forged allows customers to choose from a selection of different bespoke designs, finishes, and even sizes. As a result, car owners can create their perfect wheelset that fits their vehicle and personality, turning heads wherever they go.

Easier Maintenance

These wheels are carefully designed to require low maintenance due to their long-lasting construction and corrosion resistance. As a result, users will not suffer from curb damage or excessive accumulation of brake dust or environmental wear.

Car lovers can enjoy their wheels for years with little more than regular cleaning to maintain their appearance. Additionally, these wheels have a smooth, non-porous surface that simplifies washing.

Durable Build

Forged wheels are among the most robust wheel categories, guaranteeing exceptional longevity due to their production and design. 

These wheels have a strong, reliable structure that can handle all sorts of driving, whether it’s rough mountain roads, desert or city streets.

Long-Lasting Performance

In addition to their visual appeal, forged wheels demonstrate tangible performance benefits. Besides being lightweight, these wheels offer increased stiffness. 

These wheels also boost overall agility, responsiveness, and dynamics. The latter leads to a much more engaging driving experience and potential performance uplift.
