The COUNTERGRAM is a new 9-spoke design built with flow-forming technology. Available here in Matte Black centre w/ matte machined lip. Konig integrated feedback from their motorsport teams, racers and drivers into the new Countergram. The face was pushed out to allow for as much brake calliper protrusion as well as overall brake diameter near the drop centre. This provides excellent calliper clearance for aftermarket big brake kits.
WHAT IS FLOW FORMING?
Flow Forming Technology involves the application of pressure to the inner barrel of the wheel, while spinning & after it has been casted. This process shares similarities to that found in the forging process in which the aluminium molecules are compressed resulting in a lighter & stronger wheel with greater shock resistance & elongation properties.
APPLICATION NOTES: Flow formed and very nicely finished. ONE CAUTION, it seems Konig is trying to play more like Enkei and included cast aluminium fancy centre caps instead of industry standard cheap snap-on plastic caps. The result looks high end compared to plastic caps on wheels of similar cost but BE CAREFUL to do little more than finger tight with the very tiny allen head screws that attach the caps, use a dab of loctite, do NOT apply significant torque to the screws or they will strip out immediately!
