Today, many wheels are cast or forged out of steel, aluminum, or aluminum alloy. Casting involves pouring liquid metal into a mold, while forging involves heating and machining a wheel into shape through the use of CNC lathing equipment. The center section of a wheel contains a bolt pattern and mounting holes that are used to attach the wheel to a vehicle. The flange is the outermost lip of the wheel. The flange, which is located on the edge of the wheel, is flared to form the bead seat. The bead seat holds the tire and maintains an airtight seal. Small elevations on the inside of the bead seat, known as safety humps, prevent the tire from falling into the drop center portion of the wheel in the event of a blowout. With this innovation, drivers can maintain directional control of a vehicle with deflated tires. The section of the wheel with a smaller diameter than the rest of the wheel is the drop center. A tire can be installed and removed with the help of a drop center. Welcome to our wheel and rim shop! We are your one-stop shop for all your wheel and rim needs.
