Engaging leading wheel designers from around the globe, Rimstock ensures they remain at the forefront of automotive style and fashion trends, frequently developing exciting new design concepts. With our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and forged wheel plant, we have the capability to tailor wheels to your exact requirements - size, fit and even colour - can be to your own specification. Our revolutionary CNC machines can turn blank alloy wheels into beautiful works of art in minutes, and give you the assurance of quality excellence that world class OEM’s pursue in the production of their wheels. With the largest production facility of any alloy wheel manufacturer in Europe, you are guaranteed British quality and excellence, reliability and value for money. Transforming ideas in to reality is accomplished using state-of-the-art Silicon Graphic Pro-Engineer and Catia V5 3D modelling systems, supported by desktop publishing software. Rimstock’s in-house Design Department generate 3D wheel models, from which they can produce resin prototypes of each product. This enables our customers to see an initial 3D computer image, and even examine a physical 3D prototype model. This makes it much easier to visualise a wheel style on the vehicle, and allows customers to review and modify their design prior to final product approval.
