The 19-in IS-ONE light alloy wheel from Cargraphic features a sporty Y-spoke design together with the center lock. Created using the flow-forming method, the wheel is a single piece cast heat treated light alloy with forged-like characteristics. Following the casting process, the raw material is rolled out in a warm environment over a rotating cylinder to create the rim structure. This method of extreme compression to the aluminum allows minimum material thickness and therefore a low mass of 10.5 to14.2 kg (23 to 31 lb) per wheel, depending on the chosen width. With a capacity of 775 kg (1709 lb), the wheel is suitable for large SUVs. Cargraphic also offers a special lightweight version for sports cars with a reduction of another kilogram per wheel. Offering 450 kg (992 lb) capacity for the front wheel and 650 kg (1433 lb) capacity for the rear wheel, there is reserve left.
