FONDMETAL Wheels - Lightweight | TUV Approved | Made in Italy




Fondmetal has been around since 1972, some may remember them from their involvement in F1 racing. Recently their presence has been mostly focused in Europe.

Fondmetal is now making a new push to bring their wheels back into the US market, and we are the first to offer these to the US market! Most fitments are stocked within the US and ready to ship!

Most impressive is that Fondmetal wheels are all TUV approved! Not many manufacturers these days spend the time or money acquire this.

9RR Matte Black, Silver, and Titanium!

Wheel Weights:
18x8 - 19.1 lbs
19x8.5 - 21.1 lbs
19x9.5 - 21.9 lbs
20x8.5 - 24.1 lbs
20x9 - 25.2 lbs
20x11 - 27.0 lbs


Available 5x120 fitments:
18x8 +40
19x8.5 +35/32

Titanium


Custom finishing also available!





I had a chance to take a look at these in person and I was impressed by the quality.
The wheels are surprisingly light and look fantastic!

Here are some real world photos of their Porsche centerlock fitment:

Just wanted to share this from the S5/RS5 forum

It's a requirement for the western European market, just like JWL is a requirement for the Japanese market. All Fondmetal wheels are both TUV and JWL/VIA certified.

Fondmetal is part of the group of wheel makers with real decades of true experience in pioneering, developing and racing their wheels... along with Enkei, BBS, RAYS, OZ and Apptech. Unlike the meaningless claims of combined experience (doing what exactly?) every boutique wheel maker in America makes, right after they tell you they make the finest wheels in the world. Clearly, their world doesn't extend past their backyards.
They definitely know how to make a a great wheel, their 9Forged wheel is insanely light!
19" - 16.75 lbs
20" 19.29 lbs
