By consulting a dictionary, avant garde means the front line of an advancing army. These days, it is defined by any group that progressively pushes the boundaries of innovation and creativity. With this central concept, Avant Garde Wheels aims to evolve beyond what is known as the status quo in the wheel industry, with a view to creating superior quality wheels through performance oriented engineering. Realizing that even the best looking wheel can be ruined by improper sizing, they have been engineering their wheels from the very beginning to ensure proper fitment. At Avant Garde, they are not only passionate about the importance of the quality of their wheels, but also about how they will look installed in your car.
In order to maintain the highest possible quality, Avant Garde uses the latest in computer-aided engineering and testing when it comes to creating all their wheels. Through using Finite Element Analysis (FEA), they are able to conduct comprehensive testing methods to ensure the strength and durability of their wheels. FEA allows accurate analysis of where the wheel may be bent or twisted and shows the distribution of tension and displacement. It enables all projects to be designed, refined and developed before any development takes place.
In order to ensure that they never compromise on quality, each of their beautiful designs complies with the strict industry-recognized JWL standards. To detect even the smallest flaws, our wheels are pressurized in a specially designed water tank and scanned for hidden X-ray flaws. This entire process ensures that they deliver truly avant-garde products to customers.
Avant Garde’s newest Advanced Rim Technology (A.R.T.) is the latest manufacturing process that incorporates traditional monoblock wheel casting methods with spin forming technology to drastically improve the material properties and enhances the overall strength of our wheels.
The A.R.T. process impacts the micro-structure of aluminum by utilizing three hydraulic rollers to apply pressure to form the inner rim area after the wheel has been casted. The rollers move down the barrel, applying pressures to stretch, compress, and form the entire wheel barrel, ultimately increasing the tensile strength and elongation properties.
The end product is a lighter, stronger wheel that has an increased load capacity and shock resistance over the traditional cast aluminum wheel. A.R.T. provides up to a 25% weight reduction compared to a traditional cast wheel.
It is what started it all. With a variety of styles available, each set is engineered with specific vehicles in mind to provide an aggressive, yet functional OEM+ fitment on street applications. Consisting of designs that have stood the test of time, the Classic series is the perfect accent for any vehicle.
Utlizing Aerospace Grade 6061-T6 forged aluminum to optimize the strength-to-weight ratio of each wheel. Configuration options are limitless. Custom catered to you, achieve the look and fitment without any compromises. Each ag Forged wheel is engineered and manufactured with individualized concave center profiles in order to balance optimal brake caliper clearance and lip size. This allows for configurations that are compatible with everything from standard OEM brakes to aftermarket brake kits to ceramic brake kits.
The AG Luxury collection is meticulously designed to complement high-end vehicle aesthetics and accentuate their commanding presence. Each order is individually engineered and assembled in-house utilizing aerospace-grade forged aluminum with American made components.
