What are Three piece wheels ?
The origins of the 3-piece wheels are to be found in car racing. We owe this innovation to the companies BBS in Germany and Gotti in France, which Mad In has strong links to.
Why should I use three-piece wheels ?
3-piece wheels are particularly adapted to car racing, due to their lightness, resistance and adaptability to any set-up. For a long time, sports car such as the Berlinette, Renault Formula or Ligier F1 have been equipped with 3-piece wheels.
Even today, many hill climb drivers or rally enthusiasts use our rims, be it the 1C wheel, 2F, 3C wheel or F08 wheels, because they appreciate their lightweight, their vintage style (in the style of PLS or Gotti) and their flexibility. Besides, our P08 forged wheel is much appreciated by Porsche Track drivers.
Last but not least, our wheels are produced in France, in our workshop located in Burgundy.. When buying Mad In products, you're supporting the European economy !
Visibles bolts, great offset... a unique style !
It is also the rare and dynamic style of our split rims that appeals to fans of prestigious vehicles. The bolts around the edge of the rim, the depth of the center of the wheel (the offset)... you won't go unnoticed !
