Mandrus Wheels Introduces New Rotary Forged® Wheels /RF™ Wheels, Monoblock Rotec Wheel Exclusively for Mercedes-Benz Cars and SUVs

Now Mercedes-Benz owners have another distinctive option for personalizing their vehicle while improving performance in the bargain.

Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2012

It’s hard to improve upon the near perfection present in each and every model of Mercedes-Benz cars and SUVs. But Mandrus Mercedes Wheels, created specifically and solely for Mercedes-Benz vehicles, gives owners three ways to take their vehicles to the next level. First is the distinctive and unique appearance afforded by the several different models and finishes available only from Mandrus, including the new Rotec model. Second is the manifest advantage of a lighter wheel, achieved through an exotic but proven manufacturing method. Third is the improved traction and handling made possible by the staggered footprint –slightly wider rear tire/wheel combination—designed into the full line of Mandrus Mercedes Benz Wheels.

The Rotec model from Mandrus wheels for Mercedes is in perfect harmony with the Mercedes design tenor. It is available in Classic Chrome, trending Matte Black or in Silver with an eye-catching Mirror-Cut Face. Mercedes owners typically do little to customize their vehicle, but the Rotec wheel creates a unique opportunity to set their vehicle apart from the crowd while making a powerful personal statement.

Just as Mercedes-Benz engineers employ the latest technologies to satisfy their customers’ demands for the pinnacle of excellence, so Mandrus custom Mercedes Wheels stays at the cutting edge of wheel manufacturing technology. Case in point: the Rotary Forging process is used to make the Rotec wheel both dramatically lighter and stronger than original equipment and most aftermarket Mercedes Rims. The rim of the wheels is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed. The combination of forces actually alters the molecular structure and enhances the strength of the alloy. The result is a much lighter wheel than a traditionally cast wheel. Importantly, the weight saving accrues to the outermost perimeter rim of the wheel which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance.

The Rotec wheel is available in five diameters, from 17" to a startling 22". Within each diameter, wheel widths are available in two sizes, one typically a full one inch wider than the other. This supports the Mandrus philosophy of a staggered footprint, with wider wheels and tires in the rear. A staggered footprint not only gives the vehicle a more aggressive stance, it also improves both off-the-line and lateral adherence, for improved road handling. A larger wheel also means you can spec a lower profile, wider tire for improved cornering and braking

"We are fanatical about ensuring that each Mandrus wheel provides exact fit and 100% compatibility with each model within the Mercedes-Benz lineup," stated Terence Scheckter, president of Mandrus Wheels. "That means our wheels are precisely centered over the Mercedes hub for a smooth, vibration-free ride. The wheels fully support the Mercedes tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and accept the original equipment center logo cap", Scheckter added.
