Mercedes owners are an uncompromising lot, accustomed to acquiring best-in-class products at every turn. For such purists, the Mandrus Rotec Mercedes rim will have special appeal. While most seek out aftermarket wheels for a distinctive and upgraded appearance, Rotec Mercedes Benz wheels also deliver a performance enhancement. That’s because the Rotec wheel is manufactured using a highly advanced manufacturing process known as rotary forging. In this process, an exotic aluminum alloy is spun at high speeds under intense pressure as it is formed. This creates forces that alter the molecular grain structure of the alloy, simultaneously reducing weight and increasing strength. The weight savings accrues mostly at the outer perimeter of the wheel, reducing rotational mass and transferring more power to the road.
Rotec Mercedes wheels are uncompromising visually, as well, available in matte black or in silver with a mirror cut face. The fifteen prominent and perfectly proportioned spokes stretch to the very edge of the lip. Rotec wheels are sized to fit all Mercedes automobiles and SUVS, in sizes from 17 to 22 inches.
The Rotec Flow Formed Wheel is manufactured using a highly advanced production technique called Flow Formed Technology (FFT). The rim of the wheels is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed. This alters the molecular structure and enhances the strength of the alloy. The benefit is a much lighter weight than a regular cast wheel. Most importantly, the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance.
