The Baden design is inspired by the timeless tradition of German Bauhaus school of design, melding form and function and complementing Porsche’s simple, striking, flowing lines. The Baden is a spare, elegant five-spoke model, available in classic Matte Black or in Silver with a mirror-cut face. The Baden is manufactured using a process called rotary forging. The goal is to minimize wheel weight while actually increasing its strength and durability. The Baden is forged from a unique aluminum alloy, which is spun at high speed under intense pressure. This fundamentally alters the molecular properties of the alloy, creating a much tighter grain structure than found in a cast wheel. The resulting mechanical strength allows Victor Equipment engineers to reduce the thickness of the barrel, with weight saving that accrues to the outer-most circumference of the rim. That means weight is dramatically reduced, boosting performance across the board. Baden aftermarket Porscshe rims are available in a wide array of staggered fitments from 18 to 22 inches in diameter.
The Baden Rotary Forged Wheel is manufactured using a highly advanced production technique called Rotary Forging. The rim of the wheels is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed. This alters the molecular structure and enhances the strength of the alloy. The benefit is a much lighter weight than a regular cast wheel. Most importantly, the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance.
