ENGINEERING
Precise fitments are achieved by taking measurements from over 100 different data points around the car. Those measurements lead to CAD models that are tested using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure SAE and TUV compliance while maximizing concavity. Each wheel is specifically made for each vehicle make and model.
