New WedsSport TC-105X Forged is the latest addition to the TC lineup from WedsSport, featuring closed-die forged construction. TC-105X Forged uses patented Air Plus+ Technology first seen on the RN-05M to increase available air volume on the tire
Born in through the fire and brimstone of competitive motorsport, the WedsSport TC Series has long been WedsSport's flagship line of wheels since the release of the TC-05 in 1993. With each new generation of TC, the wheel has offered high strength, rigidity and low weight at a competitive price. With the release of the TC-105X in mid-2018, the Weds AMF process was pushed to the absolute limit. To go to the next level, Weds elected to employ the closed-die forging process (also known as mold forging).
Same Tried And True 10-Spoke Design & Features
The TC-105X Forged carries the same, 10-spoke design first seen on the TC-105N and later on the TC-105X AMF. Visually, both wheels are near-identical, with the exception of a "Forged" etching to replace the AMF casting on the wheel's face. The main visual difference is the flattened spoke surface of the TC-105X Forged which makes the wheel visually similar to the TC-105N. The new spoke shape is a byproduct of the closed-die forging process. The TC-105X Forged shares the same race-winning feature set as the AMF version, such as ball-mill cutting, N-Frame II, EJ-TI paint and more.
New Construction Process Through Closed Die Forging
Closed-Die Forging is a process used by manufacturers of high-quality Japanese forged wheels. Unlike forged wheels which have the spokes CNC-cut from pre-made blanks, closed-die forging uses a mold which has a rough shape of the wheels' spokes and face. This mold is then pressed directly with 10,000 tons of force into the metal billet, which creates a rough imprint of the wheel's face into the first forging stage. In doing so, the grain structure of the metal flows with the direction of the spokes, which is key for wheel strength and rigidity. In comparison, CNC cutting of the spokes from a wheel blank leads to a grain structure which is straight and does not follow the direction of the spokes. Like the rest of the WedsSport line, the WedsSport TC-105X Forged is 100% built in Japan. Implementation of closed-die forged construction allows for expansion to larger diameter sizes
