Rim Impact Test

This test rig simulates how rims or full wheels behave in the event of an impact.

The rim is affixed at two defined points in a way that allows it to deflect downwards and laterally. The impact hits the rim at a realistic 20°.
Potential issues:
  • Dents in the rim flank
  • Deformation of the rim profile
  • Break in the rim

The test can be performed with or without tyres.
