Frequently Asked Questions about Alloy Wheels for Ford vehicles
When selecting wheels for your Ford, the details really matter. The specs from the backspacing to offset, lug pattern, width, diameter, choice of wheel style and what tire to use with it has a huge effect on how your new wheels will look on your car - and how they'll perform. Here are just a few common questions that we're asked by customers who as they shop for wheels.

 

What is the difference between different styles of manufacturing wheels?

There are several methods utilized to manufacture aftermarketwheels, each offering its own unique advantages. The most common methods of wheel production in use today are: Gravity Casting,Low Pressure Casting (LPDC),Flow-Forming, andForging. We've taken the time to put together an explanation of each method, so you can better judge for yourself which type of wheels would best suit your Ford vehicle's needs. As a general rule of thumb, if you're planning to drive on the streets, today's streets, unfortunately, are pockmarked with potholes everywhere that can easily damage your wheels, so it's best if you opt for a wheel that emphasizes strength over light weight.

 

 

 

What Are Gravity Cast Wheels for Fords?

 

Gravity casting wheels (also called Permanent Mold or Sand Casting), relatively speaking, is the easiest way to make a wheel, and is much less expensive to produce when compared to a flow-formed or forged wheel. Your FoMoCo factory alloys are probably gravity cast.
The casting process works like this:
A crucible full of molten aluminum alloy is poured into an opening in a mold. Alloy is continually poured into the opening, like you'd fill a glass up, until the opening overflows slightly, signaling the mold has completely filled with molten alloy. Since gravity is the only force pushing the metal into the mold used in this type of manufacturing, the material will not be as dense as a low pressure cast wheel (or higher quality construction methods). Because it's not as dense as wheels produced by other means, it requires more metal to achieve the same structural strength as other means of production. This translates to the fact that a Gravity Cast wheel will be significantlyheavierthan a wheel produced with low-pressure casting or higher method of construction. However, that's not to say Gravity cast wheels are all bad - in actuality, they offer huge flexibility in the types and styles you can offer. Because the tooling costs for gravity cast wheels are low, it allows for small batch production, and flexibility in design as well as short development times. Most OEM wheels are Gravity Cast.ESM Wheelsare a good example of Gravity Cast wheels.

 

What Are Low Pressure Cast Wheels for Fords?

Low pressure casting uses almost exactly the same process as gravity casting, but adds positive pressure really stuff the alloy into the die (mold), which creates higher density metal within the wheel. The force used during injection translates into more structural integrity with less weight than gravity casting. Low Pressure Casting works like this: Using a mold similar to the type used for Gravity Casting, the crucible is sealed against the die, and then the molten aluminum alloy is forcibly injected into the mold under low pressure by using pressurized air. Low pressure cast wheels generally cost slightly more than gravity cast wheels, and are stronger. This is the most popular production method in use today. While there are also High Pressure Die Casting production methods in use, they are less common because the end product is lower strength than Low Pressure Casting.

 


What Are Flow Formed Wheels for Fords?

 

Flow form casting is a procedure that turns the wheel over a special heated mandrel, forming the shape of the wheel using three hydraulic rollers that apply tremendous amounts of pressure to the wheel to form it. The wheel is mounted to a rotating shaft and spun, often with an open flame hitting the wheel to keep it hot while two other shaped rollers apply pressure on the wheels from the side, almost like a lathe. The pressure, combined with the turning of the wheel, forces the wheel ingot blank to form against the mandrels, creating the shape and width of the wheel's barrel. During flow forming, the wheel actually "flows" down to create the full width of the wheel, hence that part of the name. During this process, the pressure applied to the cast wheel actually changes the physical properties of the aluminum, so its strength and internal integrity characteristics become similar to those of forged wheels. The added strength relative to material density translates to up to 15% weight reduction when compared to a standard low-pressure cast wheel. This is the style of manufacture utilized by such manufacturers as Forgestar Wheels.

What Are Forged Wheels for Ford?

Forged wheels are manufactured using a process that results in the strongest, lightest and most durable wheel, superior to other means of production. During the forging process, aluminum is shaped under extreme pressure, which translates into a very high strength, low weight wheel.
The process works like this: First, a billet ingot is hot forged - it takes the billet ingot and creates metal lines through volume distribution and a hot press. Then a second Forging process is used to create the face and "designed" parts of the wheel during this process. The face of the wheel and the barrel are still two separate pieces at this point. From there, a process called Cold-Spinning, much like flow forming, creates the barrel of the wheel by spinning the wheel barrel ingot and using hydraulic rollers to exert force on the barrel ingot to shape it into the final contour of the barrel. From there, the wheels are then heat treated to strengthen them by first heating them to extreme temperatures then immediately cooling them down in a solution to give the metal's internal structure greater strength. Now the machine work is done to the wheel face and barrel to create the final shape of the wheel and improve its roundness, then the components are shot blasted to prep them for final surface finishing, then the two or more pieces of the wheels are bolted together, cleaned up and then the wheel is finished.

Since manufacturing a forged wheel requires very specialized (and expensive) forging equipment, Forged Wheels consequently command a much higher price on the aftermarket than Wheels manufactured utilizing any other method. For example,BC Racing Forged Wheels for Fordare produced in this manner.
