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 [...]

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 [...]
