With the current Mercedes A-Class, the brand has redefined the compact limousine. The BORBET W-wheel is now the ideal light alloy wheel.
The 10-spoke wheel in the “Classic” category is now available in 6.5×16 and 7.0×17 inch with offset 44 – in “crystal silver” and “mistral anthracite glossy”.
When it comes to design, the BORBET W-wheel impresses with its striking and well-balanced design language and, thanks to its construction, is the benchmark when it comes to weight reduction. It can be that easy to make the Mercedes A-Class even more first-class.
Family business and traditional company – Borbet is both. Since 1962, the heritage company from Germany’s Sauerland region has become a worldwide leader in the manufacture of light alloy wheels. The reason for this: BORBET stands for perfect quality, innovative technologies and pioneering design. Valuable work that has paved the way to being a sought-after partner for the automobile industry and speciality retail. The company’s 130 year existence could only grew due to the engaged, diligent and loyal employees. All of them can be count on in all locations at all times. So Borbet still sees itself as a family. With unbounded passion for the craft, deep affinity to the roots that stretch back to 1881, and the lofty objective of always giving the best for their customers.
Quality is not simply a concept, it is Borbet’s core philosophy. The knowledge and expertise inherent in their quality processes ensure that they continue to meet customers’ requirements. Furthermore all products are subject to strict controls throughout the entire production process. In order to determine the load capacity of the wheels, various tests are carried out, e.g. the fatigue test or the impact test. The workers at Borbet remove all wheels from the process that do not have the required quality.
