VELLANO FORGED WHEELS
Vellano Forged Wheels are custom made in Ontario, California. We design, CNC machine, and assemble our wheels entirely in house. This allows us to work closely with our clients and offer applications that are truly tailor made, in a minimum amount of time.
We design our wheels specifically for the finest automobiles on the road today. Some of our designs lean more towards providing the ultimate in luxury appearance, while others are optimized for racing performance.
We take great pride in the fact that we CNC machine our wheels ourselves. We have been manufacturing precision CNC machined racing and performance parts for the automotive industry for 7 years, and we have contracted precision components to the aircraft industry.
All of our centers are forged and CNC machined—not cast. Our 19, 20, 21, 22, 24 & 26 inch wheels are constructed as a 3-piece design, and our 26 inch wheels are a 2-piece design, We use only aircraft grade 6061 T6 aluminum for our centers, non-corrosive stainless steel nuts & bolts for assembly, and CNC’d billet aluminum for our center cap.
First, our in house engineering department uses CAD/CAM software to conduct computer simulated failure testing on each new wheel design. Then, a wheel prototype is sent to an independent lab where it is tested for fatigue, impact, and cornering according to the SAE J2530 specifications. Finally, we conduct a run out test in order to insure that every wheel we produce is within spec before leaving our factory.
Our standard finishes are machine brushed (diamond cut), chrome, painted, and colour matched. Custom options are available. We currently offer 19, 20, 22, 24 & 26 inch diameter wheels in a variety of widths. In most cases lip sizes are maximized, unless requested otherwise.
It is the industry standard, when refering to lip sizes, to refer to the width of the actual barrel component. The visual lip is approximately one half inch smaller.
We specialise in Wheels for Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Cadillac Ferrari, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Maybach, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Rolls-Royce. We do not make applications for every car on the road. If you would like to know if we manufacture for a particular car make and model, please give us a call at VAD
