Konig Ampliform 18X8.5 5X112 ET43 Dark Metallic Graphite
The Ampliform is a mesh inspired, flow formed wheel design. The Ampliform is offered in 17×8″, 17×9″, 18×8.5″, 18×9.5″, 18×10″, 19×8.5″, 19×9.5″, 19×10″, 19×10.5″, 20×8.5″, 20×9.5″, 20×11″ and finished in Gloss Bronze or Dark Metallic Graphite.
Flow Forming Technology involves the application of pressure to the inner barrel of the wheel, while spinning & after it has been casted. This process shares similarities to that found in the forging process in which the aluminum molecules are compressed resulting in a lighter & stronger wheel with greater shock resistance & elongation properties.
During the manufacturing process, a casted wheel, which has been designed to have a separation between the center portion of the wheel and the spoke, is precisely machined with a special tool from the backside of the wheel. This allows that area behind the face of the wheel and spokes to have a specialized machining effect. Some of these effects include a smooth area, a machined area and even a recess in which a stripe can be painted into.
