Founded in 1984, Weds Wheels used the rigor of motorsport racing to design wheels that allowed engineers to develop innovative technologies to produce wheels that are champions on the street and track.
Weds is a Japanese wheel manufacturer for both motorsport and street use. Weds currently produces three brands of wheels: WedsSport, Kränze, and Maverick.
The company is most notable for their WedsSport line of motorsport wheels and WedsSport's longtime sponsorship of the Super GT racing team, Racing Project Bandoh.
Weds originally produced wheels for the Nissan motor company. In 1969, they entered the aftermarket wheel industry as a supplier of the now-defunct, Elster brand of wheels.
Fun fact #1: The Company was renamed in 1973 to WEDS, short for World Elster Distribution System.
Fun Fact #2: Weds created the world's first three-piece forged wheel in 1977.
WedSport was developed as the flagship line of Weds Wheels. And like any flagship products, the WedsSport delivers all the goods and all the technology that Weds has developed in every one of their wheels.
WedsSport was originally developed as high-performance forged wheels for competition racing. Throughout the years, Weds used the highly demanding motorsport racing environment as a testing ground for the development of their high-quality street wheels. Some of their designs have famously been used in the JGTC since 1998 with the team Racing Project Bandoh.
Today, WedsSport has become a top choice for premium, durable, and lightweight wheels – either by enthusiasts or hardcore racers.
Many of their wheels are designed to provide the best possible weight to strength ratio, and many of their wheels are offered at a lower price point than the competition.
In AMF the cast rim and disc are simultaneously formed. Then the cast disc is to be put through a wheel-only spinning processor and roll the rim.
First, the wheel is cast into a shape unique to flow-forming. It is molded with stretching as opposed to other products that are cast in with the shape of products.
And then with the application of extensive heat, rim sections are stretched by exclusive spinning equipment.
Finally, the machining process is done. Painting after spinning to make it into a stunning, strong, high-quality wheel that Weds is known for.
The AMF Process realizes more flexible and tenacious strength by having aluminum material’s crystal and macro formation get further detailed through being forged in this process. Now it is possible to create high-precision rim that is a seamless tube as compared to the type that forms a sheet material into a ring through welding. Such a new method of the manufacturing process has the merits of both casting and forging.
Weds develop WedSport wheels through continuous strength and quality tests and analysis. Each wheel leaves the manufacturing plant with guaranteed premium quality, durability, lightness, and eye-catching design. They also exceed JWL standard requirements.
AMF was newly created the WedsSport brand concept of “Faster, Safer.” And rightly so.
