Appearance and light of weight are two of the most important things when looking to buy aftermarket alloy wheels, and the guys at Wolfrace UK know it. Already able to supply an immense selection of wheels from their own range, Wolfrace now offers alloys from some of Europe’s foremost constructors, such as ATS. Known for its portfolio of motorsport-derived alloy wheels, the ATS range is home to the Racelight, now available via Wolfrace.

Obviously, appearances are a very personal thing and what works for one person might not for another, Racelight is a stunning looking bit of kit. It’s a deceptively simple-looking design though undoubtedly one that rewards those that take the time to look closely, whereupon its hyper-aggressive ten-spoke face becomes all too apparent. Said spoke design promotes strength and more effective brake cooling, further underscoring this wheel’s performance nature and the motorsport origins of its maker.

You’ll struggle to find a lighter mass-market alloy wheel than the Racelight, hence its name! The wheel’s reduced mass equates to a decrease in unsprung weight, i.e. everything carried ‘outboard;’ suspension, brakes, hubs and wheels. Reducing unsprung weight is one of the best ways of bringing about real improvements in handling. ATS wheels can result in an overall weight reduction of up to 16kg per vehicle, ensuring sharpened handling and, as an added bonus, a reduction in emissions.

ATS is a name which should be familiar to many, especially if you’ve an interest in motorsport. The German firm has an enviable reputation for producing excellent wheels (including the Cup and Classic, stalwarts of the VW scene), and also for supplying alloys to some of the most hotly contested FIA Championships around, including the DTM, perhaps the most technologically demanding touring car series on the planet. Factor in the ATS F1 team from the early 1980s, and it becomes clear that this is a company with the firmest of grasps on what’s required to produce wheels which are both light and strong.

The fact that ATS has been so closely intertwined with the world of motorsport for so long means that it has the manufacturing capacity to match, including an industry leading forging plant at Fußgonheim. The facility is tasked with the manufacture of both road and competition wheels, which means that those purchasing the Racelight really will be benefiting from some seriously nuanced construction practices. They’re also fully TUV approved, made in Europe, and are even backed up by a twelve-month warranty, which can be extended to a full five-years.

Wolfrace is the UK’s sole distributor for ATS wheels and is therefore well-placed to offer advice and guidance on the former’s extensive range of lightweight, motorsport inspired alloys, including the Racelight. Click through to learn more about the
