Aerospace-Grade T6 6061 Aluminium
ICON FORGED offers only one grade of material – the highest quality with no compromise. We don’t offer varying levels of quality or “Semi Forged” options as we have a very clear“No Questions Asked” warranty policy*.
The process starts right here in Australia. Our team is the foundation of our brand. TILTON Racing handles all branding, design and initial consultation for new products and categories whereby a goal is determined with either the customer or the dealer..
Wheel design is then 3D modelled around numerous data points taken from the car and 100% precision is achieved by our state-of-the-art Unigraphic NX Analysis software to ensure SAE/TUV compliance whilst exceeding applicable load ratings.
(This step is only required for custom sized or a new design not currently in our catalogue.)
Manufacturing begins with aerospace-grade T6061 billet aluminium, forged and heat treated in our 12,000 tonne press then moved onto the CNC machine for precision milling.
This step is for shaping the spokes, lip design and any other details such as air gaps and weight reduction are achieved.
Finishing based on the customer’s order; the options are limitless. We offer standard powder coating in any colour, brushed aluminium, shadow chrome, diamond cut machining as a few examples. This process consists of hand preparation, brushing and polishing followed by pre-treatment prior to coating.
Quality Control means every single wheel is inspected and signed off for delivery. This consists of the finish’s aesthetics, powder coat thickness and wheel structure inspection.
