Default Re: Titan7 - Fully Forged T-R10/TS5 Track/Street-Ready Wheels - Clears BBK!

So are they contracted out or are they 100% in house?
Perfect timing, just replied to the same question on the other forum.

"In-House" means that Titan7 wheels are all made in one single facility. For example, some wheel companies will import forgings from an outsource and then machine their wheels in their facility. Titan7 makes their wheels from start to finish in the same facility which means total quality control, and presses wheels to 10,000 tons which nobody else does in the US.

This results in a more dense and strong wheel at a great value with limited structural lifetime warranty.

So when companies like Rays and BBS tout they are all in house - they are simply stating that they have complete quality control compared to most other wheel companies, which is a good thing.

A lot of wheel companies don't actually make their wheels - they are importers. Titan7 are fully vested partners with their factory in China, where they bring their wheel expertise in engineering, product planning, design and features while we utilize their hardware to distribute great wheels. We're being fully transparent, no nonsense/fancy marketing and trying to bring high value performance product back to the industry - while making an attempt to "up" the wheel game.

In the end, the consumer is rewarded with a great wheel that is street & track ready at an affordable price.
