“Many often wonder what makes WORK Wheels so strong? WORK focuses much of its technology in rim forming. Our rim barrel is what really sets us apart. Many companies focus on the phrase “Forged”, but that only pertains to the center disk construction. The rim barrel is what takes most of the load of the vehicle; having a forged center disk with spun rim barrel really doesn’t make much difference in the strength (this applies to two and three piece construction wheels).
WORK Wheels is one of the only companies in the world to develop and utilize a “Solid Rim Flange.” The photo is a cut-away view of our two piece rim barrel. As you can see the rim flange is solid and our barrel thickness is thicker than most of our competitors.”
