A little background on the manufacturer:
Durrani Racing Components is born of the design Engineering Services, Inc.
(DES). DES is world renowned as an engineering and design firm based in
Detroit, MI and has been a pioneer in the field of magnesium since 1993
for the global automobile industry.

How the are the wheels made?

DRC uses a revolutionary new magnesium manufacturing process known as
Thixomolding, patented in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and MIT in the USA over a
decade ago. This semi-solid hot forging like process is a hybrid between
forging and die-casting with the proverbial "Best of Both Worlds." This
process and our patent pending wheel designs allow high purity alloys in
the center hub section and spokes of the wheel fused to a laser welded
forging grade AZ80A rim section. Our methodology results in a rim
structure that is nominally 10% stronger than traditional magnesium forged
wheels.

The result is a wheel that is every bit as durable and strong as a forged
magnesium wheel and is in fact about half the price and our wheels are
more readily repairable if damaged, unlike many other magnesium forming
processes.

Why are other wheels so expensive compared to the 510 series?

Magnesium costís today are less than half what they were even a decade
ago. Traditional forgings have very expensive dies which require extensive
testing and
follow-up along with excessive material removal; As much as 47% in some
cases. This results in passing the material scrap rate to the
customer...YOU!

Combined with relentless group of engineering and design, using FEA
(Virtual testing in CAD), fatigue testing, and a lean manufacturing model,
Durrani Racing Components is able to offer you the most technologically
advanced and cost effective performance wheel on the market. Period.

NOTE: All 510 series wheels are available in your own custom colors for an
additional $175.00 Please call us at 866-INDYSB-0 for custom color orders.

How much do the stock 06 Zx-10r wheels weigh? I just upgraded my sprocket, rotor, ceramic bearings and tires and would hope I could swap it all directly.
