    STIFFNESS matters! -We back-to-back Carbon Revolution's CF wheels vs AL wheels

    Hey guys,

    Whether you own a GT350R, Ford GT, or Ferrari 488 Pista with Carbon Revolution's Carbon Fiber wheels or are just looking to buy new wheels for your car. Check out this article that explains the importance STIFFNESS plays in ALL wheels, the effects of reduced unsprung weight, rotational inertia, NVH, and strength (which is different from stiffness) has on ALL wheels.

    You'll also learn that carbon fiber wheels are a game-changer, forged & cast wheels have the same stiffness, and lighter is not always better when choosing a set of wheels. Hopefully this article will provide you with more knowledge to make better wheel purchases in the future.

    I couldn't mention this at the time of writing the article but now it's public:

    Production increasing 15X:

    Looks promising! I know this is a premium wheel and there's a price to pay for lightness and increased performance, but here's hoping the increased production leads to a massive price reduction for the mere mortals among us. Oh, and some 18" BMW fitments!

    For sure. But don't forget this knowledge and these concepts apply to ALL aluminum wheels as well

    Don't have time to read? -Listen in where I join The Exotic Car Hour podcast to discuss the technical aspects from the MotoIQ article on the importance stiffness plays on ALL wheels, clarify some misconceptions of carbon fiber, and talk about my involvement helping to develop some of Ford's greatest cars like the Ford GT and the GT350/R Mustang
