Hamann Motorsport has extended the wheel programme by the exclusive design piece “Challenge”.
Laupheim, 12 september 2016. Hamann Motorsport has extended the wheel programme by the exclusive design piece “Challenge”. The premium tuner especially developed the light monoblock wheel that is capable of withstanding extreme axle loads of 950 kilogrammes for imposing models such as the Mercedes-Benz GLE or other models of this brand. “Challenge” catches the eye with its design, radiating dynamics and lightness, and with the precious “Hyper Silver” finish – and gives the luxury SUV class a particularly sporty character.
Seven deep-drawn double spokes with distinctive form elegantly run out at the rim flange and open up the view to the brake calliper. Thus, the 22-inch wheel appears even greater and more imposing. The premium lightweight’s exclusivity and originality also is evident in the Hamann logo embossed in the wheel’s edge. The precious finish is continued in the aluminium hub cap that carries the Hamann hallmark: an engraved “Pegasus”.
“Challenge” is manufactured from high-strength aluminium alloy in a complex and TÜV-certified flow forming process. This process allows to reduce the weight by ten per cent compared to conventional cast wheel rims and a rim well that is as hard as the one of a forged wheel. The powder-coated primer provides an ideal corrosion resistance. The standard finish in “Hyper Silver” colour with a silky shine is applied using the wet-in-wet technique. However, as typical for Hamann Motorsport, there are special colours available that will meet individual customer wishes. Integrated position points allow for an easy wheel alignment. Hamann Motorsport offers “Challenge” in sizes 10.0 x 22 and 12.0 x 22 inches with offsets of 28 and 44 millimetres, respectively. The 10-inch version Hamann intended to be combined with high-performance tyres sized 285/40 ZR22, the 12-inch version with imposing tyres sized 325/35 ZR22. With its 5-bolt pattern, the latter already is available including General Operating Permit for many models.
