Spoke types

The laws of physics dictate that a wheel needs at least three spokes. Otherwise it would be unable to cope with the strains to which it is subjected and would give way due to a lack of stability. Beyond this technical necessity, there is a certain leeway for design. While things still revolve around function in the case of three- and four-spoke wheels, a larger number of spokes provides plenty of room for [...]

X-Ray Inspection

Alloy wheel enthusiasts naturally appreciate the amazing look and great driving dynamics of these wheel rims. A topic of at least equal importance when it comes to alloy wheels, though, is safety. Only if the wheel’s engineering and production processes comply with all relevant safety standards can the consumer base their decision for one model or another purely on design aspects. A range of special inspection methods provides assurance that all wheels from [...]

X10 – X12

Actually, you should drive these two alloy wheels at the same time, because they are a strong duo: the models X10 and X12 from RIAL. Unfortunately, there are good reasons not to equip a vehicle with different wheels. And there are some distinguishing features between the X10 and X12 after all. The X10 alloy wheel from RIAL impresses with a sporty elegance characterized by its double spokes diverging from each other far into [...]

Astorga graphite

The alloy wheel ASTORGA has been on the market since Spring 2020, making it one of the latest models from RIAL. It owes its success to an interesting design variation – the classic double-spoke design has been given a one-of-a-kind twist through a slightly asymmetrical alignment. At the same time, this dynamic wheel is suitable for many vehicle models thanks to its balanced proportions. ASTORGA fans can now also choose among three color [...]

Centering Rings

Many alloy wheels are manufactured with a relatively large center bore. This is because alloy wheels are designed to fit as many vehicle models as possible, and different automotive brands use different center bore diameters. Because the alloy wheel must perfectly fit on the vehicle hub, of course, there is a mounting aid to accommodate any difference between the wheel hub diameter and the center bore diameter: centering rings. If the wheel is [...]

In keeping with the optimistic energy, the curved double spokes have their own unique aesthetic and epitomize agile driving fun. The wheel’s powerful appearance upgrades every vehicle and adds an optical highlight to the RIAL portfolio without compromising on [...]

The Wheel of the Future

As a well-known saying goes, the only constant in life is change. This applies not only in many life situations, but also, to a certain extent, to RIAL’s alloy wheels. Even our popular portfolio is constantly changing. Both tried-and-tested and new designs are being extended to accommodate more and more new sizes and applications. A second change is driven by regulations and requirements in the EU. A greater emphasis is being placed on [...]
