Aluminum-Carbon Wheels: Cheap, Light, Strong
A new partnership between ThyssenKrupp and Maxion will be producing aluminum-carbon wheels: a less expensive alternative to full carbon fiber.
The GT350R will have the honor of being the first mass produced car to be fitted with carbon fiber wheels, and some of the engineering hacks that were made in order to get there are astonishing.
Here we have a 1964 Ford Mustang that hasn’t been turned into an all out street performer, but rather an all out mudslinging monster truck.
Seemingly every car imaginable was on hand at last weekend’s HRE Performance Wheels annual Open House and Car Show, including Matt Farah’s badass Fox Body.
