Flow formed: Motegi MR136

Posted in Cars


The two most common types of wheels you see on the street or the track are the traditional cast wheel and the Flow Form wheel. For a solid strength to weight ratio, Flow Formed technology is the way to go — the lighter the wheel is, the less rotational mass to turn and therefore the faster you can get up to speed. The Motegi MR136 is offered in a satin black finish, and the raised face mimics a two-piece construction, starting off as a cast mould that goes on to be heat treated and sized to proper vehicle dimensions. Formula Drift driver Corey Hosford’s S14 Nissan runs a set of Motegis — and if there’s ever a test of abuse, it’s drifting.
