Interesting that Advan is using a gravity cast - one thing is their method according to the picture is spun (like flow form) so I am guessing it's a hybrid method?

I'll see if I can find out on the forgestar but the cutting production process is done all here, some huge machines.
VMR, there are other that also have confirmation about this.

Advan, since they are flow forming they save on tooling cost by using Gravity. Low pressure+Flow forming will make a stronger wheel but not by much. Remember, flow forming first cast a wheel blank and then "flow forms" the rim.
