Questions about 6Sixty Wheels



I love how the 6sixty wheels came out, but I know nothing about it.

Tried to auto-translate the video and figure out, but that just doesn't help.

Could somebody translate what JP Performance is saying about the 6Sixty wheels in English? Or just summarize what he is saying?

I think he talks about the flow forming wheels, the thickness of spokes, the indentation on the spokes, and etc.

Maybe about the materials 6sixty uses, how they made it, and design concepts as well.

He talks about the wheels from 2:00 to about 7:00. Let me know if you could help.

Thanks

K

Hey

Sorry I just saw this. I co founded the 6Sixty Brand with one of my friends who has been in the wheel industry for a long time and was involved in the design process for this particular model called the Emblem.

They are the same wheels we run on our M2 GTS project, F10 M5 and what we ran on our F80 M3 when we had it.



The wheels are one piece forged and machined out of T6061. They are not flow formed.

The M2/M4 fitment in 19" is now TUV approved also. Let me know if you have any questions.

My German language skills suck so I did not comprehend much of what looks to be both an informative and entertaining video. Sorry. Did I correctly understand the presenter as saying that the M2 OEM wheels are “flow formed” and not truly forged? Also, I would be interested in a U.S. source for these wheels.
