PART NUMBER: 61-2827
The Hexaform is a NEW 6-spoke design built with flow-forming technology. Available matte black or matte bronze. Konig integrated feedback from their motorsport teams, racers and drivers into the new Hexaform. The face was pushed out to allow for as much brake caliper protrusion as well as overall brake diameter near the drop center. This provides excellent caliper clearance for aftermarket big brake kits.
Brian's APPLICATION NOTES: Flow formed and very nicely finished. ONE CAUTION, it seems Konig is trying to play more like Enkei and included cast aluminum fancy center caps instead of industry standard cheap snap-on plastic caps. The result looks high end compared to plastic caps on wheels of similar cost but BE CAREFUL to do little more than finger tight with the very tiny allen head screws that attach the caps, use a dab of loctite, do NOT apply significant torque to the screws or they will strip out immediately!
WHAT IS FLOW FORMING?
Flow Forming Technology involves the application of pressure to the inner barrel of the wheel, while spinning & after it has been casted. This process shares similarities to that found in the forging process in which the aluminum molecules are compressed resulting in a lighter & stronger wheel with greater shock resistance & elongation properties.
