From January 2011 TECHART offers its customers a 20-inch lightweight forged centerlock wheel in sizes of 8,5J x 20 ET 40 and 8,5J x 20 ET 52 for the front axle and 12J x 20 ET 50 for the rear axle. The rigidity and weight ratio was optimized one more time for the TECHART Formula Race and – based on the lighter twin spokes and the connection through the centerlock – provides a weight advantages of 10% if compared to the TECHART Formula III forged wheel and an impressive 25% if compared to a light alloy wheel. The result: a reduction of the rotating and unsprung mass, which results in an even more agile driving behavior and increased driving dynamics.
Another advantage if compared to a conventional 5-hole screwed: A fast wheel change, which represents an important plus factor when used on the race track. In addition, the high material stability permits the known filigree design of the TECHART forged wheels, which results not only in visual dynamics but significantly improves the ventilation of the brakes.
The TECHART Formula Race is available in titanium grey matt as well as in individual matched custom colour. For the necessary road grip, TECHART recommends Continental ContiSportContact 3 and Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 in sizes of 245/30R20 and 325/25R20 as well as Michelin Pilot Sport Cup+ in dimensions ofÂ 245/30R20 and 315/25R20
