Introductory Sale: MORR VS8.2 19" and 20" - Limited time - 1 Piece Forged Concave
MonoForgedô - Lighter.Wider.Stronger.
A few months ago, we posted various threads looking for a S4 and a S5 to partially sponsor a set of 20" MORR VS8.2 We teased the AudiZine community for weeks about an introductory sale and it is finally on! You will never find a 1 piece forged wheel of this quality at such a low price ever. This introductory sale is valid until June 30th ! Please note this is not a group buy and as such we will not hold your money. When an order is put in, turn around time is 6 weeks.
Re-Designed - The new VS8.2 is a step above from our VS8 design. A lot of attention was given to detail during the design stages of this wheel. The spokes have been extended further out and the outer lip has been reduced, creating a larger appearance, while the spoke shape has been given more dimension through enhanced curvature. The outer lip has been smoothed as well for a cleaner, more "finished" look.
Ultra-Concave - Being one of the pioneers of the concavity trend, the new MonoForgedô VS8.2 is the most concave 10" wheel currently available for the Audi S4/S5 with a profile depth of over 30-degrees!
Inner Lip - One of the greatest challenges with the VS8 inner lip was its depth. At over 3", the availability of milling machines that were able to mill that deep was extremely limited. With the new MonoForgedô VS8.2, that lip was further increased to 3.25", further enhancing the overall look of the design.
Optimization - Through Vehicle Specific Profiles (VSP), Vehicle Specific Load Ratings (VSLR) and Vehicle Specific Weight Optimization (VSWO) we can create wheel blanks that are specific to the vehicle applications. This reduces excess back-pad material, reducing weight and improving strength. The minimal back-pad spacing, as shown below, eliminates the need for excessive machining. This ensures structural integrity is not sacrificed.
Ultra-Lightweight - The new MonoForgedô VS8.2 is one of the lightest 7-spokes wheels available. Weighing in at only 19-lbs for the front! (in 19")
FEA - Finite Element Analysis helped optimized the wheel strength and remove unnecessary material for the lightest possible wheel. Even at 19-lbs (in 19"), the new VS8.2 wheel was tested at a load of 690kg and passed every FEA with flying colors.
Lighter. The new MonoForgedô VS8.2 is lighter, wider, and stronger than any of its predecessors. This weight reduction was achieved by implementing several advanced manufacturing processes including flow-forming. Flow-forming helps reduce barrel thickness by up to ten-percent. We also achieved such significant weight reduction by using Vehicle Specific Profiles (VSP) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) by using Vehicle Specific Load Ratings (VSLR) and Vehicle Specific Weight Optimization (VSWO).
By using VSLR and VSWO, weight can be reduced by eliminating the need of using excessive load ratings due to the wheel blanks being shared with higher rated platforms. MORR manufactures wheel blanks exclusively for every design it produces, allowing us to engineer the blanks according to the specific load ratings of the vehicle brand & model we are making the wheel for. This in turn increases our production costs, but allows us to make a far superior wheel.
Through VSP, we can minimize excessive back spacing in our wheel blanks. Adding material to the back pad is required when sharing blanks among different platforms, increasing the weight and required excessive machining of the back pad which could compromise the integrity of the final product. Our MonoForgedô blanks are vehicle specific, thus requiring minimum machining of the back pad, resulting in a lighter wheel without compromising its integrity.
Wider. At 10-inches wide, our new VS8.2 rears are .5-inch wider than its predecessors, widening the vehicleís rear track, allowing for wider tires, increasing the concavity profile and improving the overall vehicle handling dynamics.
Stronger. At MORR, during the design stage, our engineers run FEA simulations to ensure the weight optimization process does not sacrifice wheel strength. To ensure our wheels are ultra-lightweight and equally as strong, our MonoForgedô product line is manufactured using only the highest grade 6061-T6 Aluminum. All of our wheels conform to the strict international and domestic standards of wheel quality and manufacturing, which include VIA/JWL, TuV-Rheinland and SAE J2530 standards for the US DOT. Our MonoForgedô VS8.2 is rated at the new safety standard of 690-kg (1518-lbs) per corner and is also subject to extensive Rotary Bending Fatigue, 13-degree Impact @ 0-degrres, 13-degree impact @ spoke, Radial Load Endurance and Radial Load Fatigue physical testing.
