All our wheels go through am intensive testing process. These tests consist of load, corrosion, temperature, and destruction testing. We make sure that our wheels are not only strong enough to handle normal daily driving, but high stress conditions as well. Due to these stringent tests, we have the utmost confidence in our wheels. *Please inquire for an evaluation of wheel options best suited for racing, offroad use, rough road conditions and anything other than normall road use.
360 Forged Wheels are made to withstand extremely high load situations. We not only design our wheels to withstand the vehicles weight, but the centrifical force as well. If a vehicle weighs 3000 pounds and is able to pull 1g of lateral acceleration through a turn, we ensure our wheels can handle the stress of excess of 3000 pounds pulling the wheel in either direction as well as the force pushing down on them. We've designed our wheels to handle loads far beyond what normal driving situations would submit them to.
All of our finishes are corrosion tested. We use several methods of corrosion testing. One of the most damaging elements a wheel can endure is salt. We put all of our finishes through a 1000 hour non stop direct spray of salt water. Granted, we can't design a wheel that is 100% resistant to these conditions, however with proper care, and maintenance such as regular cleaning, our wheels are able to endure years of abuse from the elements. Through this test, only minor damage is seen on the wheels clear coat finish, which can be re-coated, and polished to bring back it's original luster.
Extreme Temperature Testing:
During extreme situations such as racing, our wheels are often times heated to very extreme temperatures. We test to ensure that structural integrity of the wheel remains intact during and after these conditions and that no fatigue is endured. Our wheels are also tested in extreme cold conditions where metal can become brittle. The results of our tests conclude that our wheels are able to withstand the most extreme temperatures, hot or cold.
Every wheel has it's breaking point. Dieffernt designs distribute stess loads differently. We determine where the wheels weak point is, and stress test it to the point of failure. The one thing that we are trying to accomplish during this test is that you never see this point. With that being said, we design our wheels to far exceed the maximum stress levels caused by normal driving and some racing conditions. During normal conditions, the usual damage is done by hitting a pothole, which normally results in a bent inner or outer rim half. These situations are often times unavoidable. Being that our wheels are a 3 piece design, we can un-assemble them, and repair or replace the individual piece, or pieces that are damaged rather than replacing an entire wheel.
