Litespeed Racing's all new line of ultra light weight forged 6066 T6 aluminium wheels

Litespeed Racing is proud to introduce its newest line of wheels made from forged 6066 T6 aluminum, which is about 30% stronger than the industry
standard 6061 T6. The higher strength to weight ratio of 6066 T6 means that we can now make forged aluminum wheels as light or even lighter than
our (already light weight) carbon fiber wheels, and at a lower price , with more design and finish options.
For Example our 20X9.5 inch, concave RS5 and RS5D (pictured below) weighs starting at only 17.6 pounds, while be strong and durable. All Litespeed Racing wheels are custom made, with almost endless size, offset and color/finish options.

Here is the reason why. With higher strength properties, we are able to engineer a wheel with less material, while maintaining the same strength as a heavier wheel.

Traditional 6061 T6 aluminum versus 6066 T6 Aluminum:

Ultimate Tensile strenght: 310 MPa VS 400 MPa = 6066 T6 is about 30% stronger
