Green Bay Attorney Shane Brabazon
Borrani has a unique relationship with several world renowned carmakers to include the likes of Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Ferrari. The relationship began with such famous car companies before the beginning of World War II and contiues to grow stronger today. In fact, there are only four surviving brands of Borrani that are still active that can relate to this heritage those being Pirelli, Michelin, Borrani and more indirectly Shell.
The Classic Borrani wire wheels have various advantages and unique design features which distinguishes the Borrani brand from other wire wheels. These unique aspects of Borrani wheels include:
Originality – Borrani has been the OEM supplier of wire wheels for many famous carmakers such as Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and others.
Strength – The uniqueness of Borrani’s forged componenets, allow rims with steel spokes and unique design give Borrani wheels strength beyond what you can find in other wire rimmed wheels
Lightness – Borrani wheels weigh at least 25% less than other similar steel wheels without the loss in strength – in fact, Borrani wheels are stronger.
Quality – Hand made in Italy to the highest standards, Borrani wheels are designed so that every car type has one or more specific wheel designed for that specific make and model.
Looks: Borrani wheels are available in either a polished alloy or painted, which has a much better look than steel.
Over the past 85 years, Borrani has designed close to 5000 different wheels. Each Borrani wheel is unique because of its own mounting pattern, the number of spokes, dimpling or drilling, center or outer laced, number of rows, off set and special center cut pieces. Each Borrani wheel has a single application becuase its made for a single type of car.
Restoration of Vintage Wheels
The wheel restoration service offered by Borrani consists of repairing and re-polishing the rim, re-printing of the markings, new sopks and chroming of the center piece. For painted wheels, the rims are rebuilt to original specs and then painted silver. Unfortunately, not all Borrani wheels can be refurbished. A great deal depends on the condition of the rim and its thickness. If other parts need to be replaced (such as the center piece), that portion of the restoration is considered extra. All restored wheels are printed at the inside edge of the rim with a progressive number and the date of restoration.
The mounting of a non-original, modified or unprofessionally restored wire wheel on your car can pose serious risks, cause harm and damages to your car and you! Improper mounting can affect the original approvals and homologation as well as the handling and safety of your vehicle.
When it comes to classic car wheels, Borrani is in a class of its own. Uniquely designed and beautifully crafted, Borrani wheels certainly at the top of the class.
