Advanced tech Dymag wheels for BAC Mono

2 September 2016

BAC has revealed a stunning upgrade to the looks of the Mono supercar, with a brand new set of hybrid carbon-composite wheels.

The wheels are now available for new and existing cars that were shown in public for the first time at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed. The innovative 17-inch wheels are an advanced carbon composite construction, and are made using the latest technology from Dymag. The rim, which features soft curved corners to aid strength, is made of carbon composite to lower the rotational weight of the wheel.

The spokes, where stiffness is a crucial requirement, are crafted from a solid billet of aluminium, while the wheel is secured to the car with five pairs of titanium bolts, adding further strength and lightness. With each wheel bolt weighing just 30.2g, this amounts to a 212.5g saving per wheel.

As well as adding to the dynamic and purposeful look of the Mono, the new wheels boost the car’s handling and performance due to being notably lighter than the standard wheels. The total weight saving on the front axle is 23.5%, where the 7.5-inch by 17-inch wheels weigh 5.7 kg each. The 9-inch-wide rear wheels each weigh 6.0 kg, despite being half an inch wider than the standard rims, amounting to an overall 22.9% reduction in weight on the axle.

The new carbon wheels for the BAC Mono are now available to order.
