ROAD+STREET+RACE
A Performance Driven Wheel Brand
EST. 2015

Designed with spirited driving in mind, Road Street Race (RSR) aims to join performance and build quality with the styling standards of today’s market. What we’re trying to say is that not everyone can develop products that push the envelope, and that is what we aim to do on a daily.

Product development at Road Street Race is headed by Bill Koenig. Previously, Bill was the Director of Sales and Marketing for Carbon Revolution and the president/owner of Dymag USA/Rennworx LTD Inc.

At Carbon Revolution Bill was responsible for starting the brand in the U.S. and assisted with the testing development of the first commercially produced Porsche 19x9 & 19x12 full carbon fiber one-piece wheels.

At Dymag USA / Rennworx LTD Inc. Bill was the president and owner. There he was responsible for sourcing, testing and introducing Dymag Carbon Fiber / Magnesium wheels to the U.S. market.

Bill has constantly pushed the limits within the wheel industry. In 2015, he pushed RSR beyond typical standards releasing a centerlock monoblock Forged Magnesium wheel at SEMA. One year later in 2016, RSR would achieve its biggest accomplishment: the production of a 20x10” wheel weighing in under 17.5 lbs - the R981, which is still available for those who are interested in a fully custom magnesium wheel.


MAGNESIUM ALLOY
Magnesium alloy is an ultra-light material with enormous dampening power [10x greater than aluminum, titanium, or steel] making for the perfect track wheel. If you missed Track Wheels 101, the benefits of going with lighter wheels made out of magnesium alloy are:
  • enhanced braking and acceleration
  • improved effectiveness of the suspension due to reduced unsprung weight
  • improved handling from reduced mass
FORGED vs. FLOW FORMED vs. CAST
Why go full forged over cast or flow formed (a.k.a. rotary forged, spun cast, flow forged, etc)? All wheels are not invincible. Forged wheels provide you the extra cushion for driving on the road, especially if you live in an area with tons of potholes and uneven roads.

A forged aluminum wheel has a higher specific strength as well as higher toughness (engineering term for its ability to absorb energy) in comparison to a casted wheel. This allows our engineers to design a wheel that is lighter, stiffer and less susceptible to cracking under impact and with better fatigue properties than a casted wheel.


FORGED WHEELS
  • Lighter than cast and flow formed wheels
  • stiffer and less susceptible to cracking under impact
MONOBLOCK FORGED WHEELS
  • Stronger than multi-piece wheels
  • Lighter than multi-piece wheels
  • No seal issues as with multi-piece wheels
