There are many wheel manufactures for the ZR1 style of wheel but the process used in manufacturing can differ. The two main process used in the manufacture of wheels are casting and forging; these process are briefly summarized.

Casting is the process whereby molten aluminum is poured into a mold. After cooling, final machining and finishing work is performed to have a nice finish. Some cast wheels may be heat-treated as well. So what are the pros and cons of the casting technique of interest to customers? The "pros" to cast wheels is that they are cheap to manufacture and easily made in high volumes. The "cons" are that they are typically heavier than forged wheels due to their relatively low material strength properties.

Forging is the process whereby aluminum billet stock is cut to specified length depending on wheel size, heated, and pressed into shape using very accurate dies, successive steps. and pressure. Forging imparts energy into the metal thus altering the internal grain structure of the aluminum and imparting additional strength in comparison to the original billet rod. The USW Forged wheel is heat treated to a T6 condition in the case of 6061-T6 to get the right mix of strength and ductility. So what are the pros and cons of a forged wheel? The "pros" of a forged aluminum wheel is that it has a higher specific strength and higher toughness in comparison to a cast wheel. This allows an engineer to design a wheel that is lighter, stiffer and less susceptible to cracking under impact and with better fatigue properties than a cast wheel. The "cons" are that forged wheels are typically more expensive.

I definitely appreciate your situation after reading the thread you provided. But please note that the new owners of USW Forged were not involved in any way, shape or form with what happened. One of the current USW Forged owners went through what you described in your thread and that is when he found out they were closing the company just as stated in your thread and that Bismark had been released. We offered to purchase the company and did. I do ask you to consider that your statement affects the new owners negatively in our ability to do business as we are not the same owners that caused your issue. We are the same in name only but are different owners that build show and performance cars. Thank you for being forthright with me as we need to make sure we do not repeat this issue. I am glad thought to hear that you not only got your wheels back but also your money.

Do you offer the EX 2.0 style in fitments for a 2010 SS Camaro? I want to run either a 18" or a 19" diameter. If possible, I want to run 10" wide wheels on all 4 corners. I have Pedders suspension components and lowered 0.5 inches. What do you have to offer?
