Innsbruck aftermarket Porsche wheels from Victor Equipment have a “ski pole basket” design comprised of a latticework of eight paired spokes radiating from a center hub. This wheel is available in serious Matte Black finish as well as striking Silver with a mirror-cut face. The very first Porsche, a 356 model, scored its first race victory in Innsbruck, Austria in 1948. In keeping with the Porsche ethos of ultimate performance, the Innsbruck wheel is manufactured using a cutting edge manufacturing process known as rotary forging. The goal is to minimize wheel weight while actually increasing its strength and durability. The face is cast then the barrel is spun at high speed under intense pressure with complex computer-controlled machinery. This fundamentally alters the molecular properties of the alloy, creating a much tighter grain structure that creates a lighter wheel than a cast wheel. The resulting mechanical strength allows Victor Equipment engineers to reduce the thickness of the barrel, with weight saving that accrues to the outer-most circumference of the wheel. That means rotational mass is dramatically reduced which enhances vehicle performance. Innsbruck aftermarket Porsche rims are available in a wide array of staggered fitments from 18 to 22 inches in diameter.
* The Innsbruck Rotary Forged® Wheel /RF™ Wheel is manufactured using a highly advanced production technique called Rotary Forging® /RF™. The rim of the wheels is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed. This alters the molecular structure and enhances the strength of the alloy. The benefit is a much lighter weight than a regular cast wheel. Most importantly, the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance.
