How does SSR's Semi-Solid-Forging compare to regular forging?
Wheels made from regular forging are heated and pressed into shape. Semi-Solid-Forging uses a different manufacturing process whereby the wheel material is semi-melted prior to high-pressure injection into a mold. Semi-Solid-Forging allows increased flexibility with creating innovative wheel designs while also providing high strength and light-weightedness.
