Carbon Composite wheels aren’t just for the GT350R anymore!

GT350R Carbon Fiber Wheel

The new Shelby GT350R is coming with a nice set of carbon fiber wheels which is a very exciting move, technology-wise.  It looks like there will be other production cars also coming with composite wheels.  Audi’s newly designed S4 is slated to include them and we believe a coop between German-based ThyssenKrupp Carbon Components and Maxion Wheels will be the source.  The wheels will be an aluminum and carbon fiber hybrid design, touting up to 40% weight reduction beyond high-performance forged wheels currently made for the performance/luxury segment.
