Carrozzeria Wheels are high-quality at an affordable price. Whether you are looking at Carrozzeria's Tri-R or V-track wheels, you will be impressed with the quality, fit and finish. arrozzeria Forged Rims are made from wrought 6151-T6 which has an inherently better “grain” structure and is not only stronger then cast wheels, but more uniform and consistent in quality. To illustrate I have compared the strength of the material used in Carrozzeria forged rims with the strongest casting alloys listed in an engineering text. As I do not know what material is used in stock or aftermarket cast wheels I listed the highest strength cast alloys listed. In reality the difference may actually be greater than shown. Also cast wheels are much more likely to have internal defects which will reduce the properties even more.
