BRAID has quite a few solutions for FORMULA STUDENT requirements.

Usually FSAE teams uses 10" and 13" diameter wheels with widths according to the selected tyre, normally between 6" and 8" wide.

Our catalogue includes wheels with conceptually different designs and manufacturing process to suit each team.

The most common and most used among the teams was the 2-piece Formrace Wheel, made with the latest spin-forging technology extremely lightweight, weighting from only 3 kilos, find more information here.

However we have created a new concept wheel, STURACE Monoblock, as an evolution of the classic Formrace, made for vehicles with 500Kgs total weight (including driver and fuel). We changed the wheel design to 6 spokes for better performance, and reduction of weight regarding the classic Formrace. It's also made with Spin-forging technology and it weights from only 2,6 kilos. Find more information here.

Another option for 13" diameter rim is the Winrace FSAE and Winrace A. These are made in light cast alloy aluminium with heat treatment for maximum lightweight and stiffness, and engineered to the limit for very light cars.  It is available in size 7"X13" as standard. Other widths can also be made with TCT version. The weight starts from 4.1Kgs on the Winrace FSAE and from 4.9Kgs on the Winrace A, depending on the offset and PCD.  Find more information here for Winrace FSAE and here for Winrace A. 

In 10" wheels we present the Tenrace FSAE 10" wheels. It is the same design as our standard TENRACE+, which is also available for Formula Students cars. Tenrace FSAE 10" wheel is made with lightweight version, re-designed and engineered for extremely light cars, such as Formula Student vehicles. It is available in sizes 5"X10" ET+7, 6"X10" ET-5 and 8"X10" ET-30 as standard. Other widths and offsets can be made with TCT version. The weight of the Tenrace FSAE starts from 2.4Kgs and the weight of the Tenrace+ starts from 3kgs depending on the sizes, offset and PCD. Find more information here for Tenrace FSAE and here for Tenrace+.

Another option is the Splitted 3-Piece wheel, little stronger and heavier than the previous one which is not very common to use in these little formulas, click here for more information. 

The brake caliper determines the inner profile of the rim. If the student has already decided which caliper to use, he must send the interference profile to overhaul with the inner profile of our wheels. For this purpose, either the profile drawing is send by e-mail or the "Scheme 5" available here. Another possibility is to send our inner standard profile and then choose the brake caliper compatible. Apart from the standard profile we can adapt to other specifications, so contacting with our Technical Department is very useful. 

Offset or ET is the distance between mounting face of the wheels to its imaginary centre line. It determines the pathway of the vehicle, which moves the wheel inward or outward. The student must choose their convenience ET or offset depending on the geometry of the suspension used.

We can adapt to any ET within a wide margin. Contact us. 

The other parameters reported are the number and diameter of the fixing holes implementation (PCD). Information can be found here. If you decide to use Mononut fixing hole, useful information here

The last important parameter is the diameter of the hub. This central hole determines the center of the rim to avoid eccentricities. The typical tolerance is 0.1 mm.
