KANSAS CITY, Mo. — MOMO Automotive Group is launching a six-spoke alloy wheel, the Heritage 6, that draws heavily on the wheel maker's first alloy wheels from the 1970s, but re-engineered to accommodate modern brakes.
"The Heritage 6 revives an important aspect of our competition history, bringing it to the modern enthusiast," MOMO President Henrique Cisneros said.
"It also blends cutting-edge engineering and manufacturing with the traditions of our storied brand."
The Heritage 6 is available in 17- and 18-inch diameters with widths ranging from 8 to 12 inches, and features custom offsets and bolt patterns ranging between 5x100 and 5x130 for motorsports fitments, MOMO said.
The Heritage 6 comes in a variety of custom finishes including matte or gloss black, matte or gloss gunmetal, matte bronze, matte race gold, gloss white, MOMO red and heavy metallic silver.
While retaining the flat six-spoke face of the original MOMO competition wheel, the Heritage 6 is made with MOMO's dual-way flow forming technology that yields lighter and stronger wheels.
MOMO claims this technology creates a rim area with similar strength and impact ratings to forged wheels, but with a 15-percent weight reduction vs. alloy wheels.
The wheel's price is listed as "starting at $450."
