  • Hello,


    another addendum to the topic, came across it yesterday by chance: At the well-known Frenchman there are new Fuchsfelgen also with Porsche ET number for all who need it. E.g. 8Jx16 with 1173€ still cheaper than most offered, used, refurbished rims. Called Evolution and are by improved production according to Fuchs "up to 700 g lighter, than conventional Fuchs rims of size 7J and 8Jx16".


    Greetings Franz

  • 7j and 9j on Carrera,only FORGED....

    When it comes to forged rims, but there are much better than from Mr. Fuchs. Is also not rocket science.

    Visually, this is a matter of taste.

  • When it comes to forged rims, however, there are clearly better than from Mr. Fuchs. It's not rocket science either.

    I would be grateful for an example.

  • But these are mostly cast rims, then even more parts.


    I think you are comparing apples and oranges here.

    Where do you see that these are cast rims? Before forging, of course, a casting lump is created. Even at Fuchs, the tire bed is made after press forging by ordinary forming. This is neither unusual nor particularly innovative. Here, a manufacturing step "forging" has been profitably sold by clever marketing.


    Multi-part rims are, of course, only useful in mortor sports. However, these designs have been in use longer and more successfully than Fuchs' sacred impeller.

    In your links, the rims are referred to as cast rims.


    It is undisputed that cast rims are also called cast rims, just as forged rims are called forged rims. This is simply because the forged wheel is of higher quality. It is so, even if it does not seem to suit you.


    It should be logical that the aluminum is cast beforehand. It is not a "cast lump" before the forging process, but a cut piece of aluminum rod.

    The higher value is in the production steps, in the effort of manufacturing.
