Spun Forging Makes Better Performing Wheels

All E5 Wheels are Spun Forged, compared to most aftermarket wheels that are low-pressure cast aluminum. Our ISO 9000 manufacturing facility applies proprietary techniques during the Spun Forging process to stretch and compress the aluminum, producing stronger yet lighter wheels.

To achieve this, we first preheat the aluminum alloy for each E5 Wheel to 662 degrees Fahrenheit. The robotic arm of our state-of-the-art Spun Forging press then applies 10,000 tons of pressure to the heated aluminum in the die to form the shape of the wheel.

Our process includes a full eight hours of heat treatment after each wheel is formed, which increases the tensile strength of E5 Wheels far beyond that of the average cast aluminum wheel.  This added strength means that E5 Wheels weigh much less than cast aluminum wheels, which translates to improved acceleration and handling responsiveness for your Corvette.

It is during this Spun Forging process that the ridges are formed on the barrels of our wheels. These unique ridges on every E5 Wheel provide additional strength and durability, giving each of our wheels 1500 lbs. of load capacity. These ridges also reduce rotational mass, giving your Corvette the ultimate in street performance.

Our Technology Also Gives You Great-Looking Wheels

E5 Wheels uses Spun Forging technology for more than making wheels with lower weight, higher strength, and excellent performance. Our designers have used these advantages to create wheels with eye-catching style that will get you noticed!

A 5-Year Warranty That Beats the Industry Standard

When you choose E5 Wheels for your Corvette, we have your back. Our 5-year warranty is vastly superior to the 1-year warranty offered by most aftermarket wheel manufacturers. Buy with confidence.
