Wheels & Accessories
Gravity casting wheels, 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. During the Gravity Casting process, aluminum, or an alloy is poured into a mold which uses earth's gravity to form the shape and design of the wheel. Since gravity is the only force used in this type of manufacturing process, the material will not be as dense as a low pressure cast wheel (or higher quality construction methods) and so it requires more metal to achieve the same structural strength as other means of production. This means that a Gravity Cast wheel will be significantly heavier than a wheel produced with low-pressure casting or higher method of construction.
