Introducing Litespeed Racing forged composite carbon fiber wheel technology. Developed with one goal: to make the lightest 3 piece wheel possible. The form is one of a kind, with the unique looking forged composites carbon fiber center, and spun aluminum outer lip, this wheel is truly stunning.
Lamborghini originally developed forged composites as a carbon fiber to replace complex aluminium parts. It doesn't look like traditional carbon fiber, because it is made by mixing non directional carbon fiber strands with super strong resin, and then compression molding it in a 200 ton press. Traditional carbon fiber has very high strength to weight ratio, but its strength is directional; Meaning it is much stronger being pulled in one direction, than being pressed or torqued. But a wheel must withstand forces in multiple directions. Litespeed Racing forged composite center can handle multi directional forces because the carbon fiber strands are also multi directional, formed in a 200 ton press, giving greater compression strength than traditional carbon fiber.
The carbon fiber center is titanium bolted to a traditional forged aluminium barrel to create a wheel that is lighter than a comparable forged aluminium wheel.
Available in 19" - 20” - 21" with raw carbon centers, gloss carbon centers, and custom barrel finishes. Standard Lip and Step Lip barrels are available.
