Title:
AUTOMOBILE WHEEL
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2012/107989
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
An automobile wheel (1) is provided with a spoke section (24) and a disk flange section (25). The spoke section (24) is provided with a central groove section (31) and raised side sections (32) disposed on either side of the central groove section (31). The raised side sections (32) are provided with a peak side section (33) that protrudes to the front and a flange section (34) that extends from the side edge of the peak side section (33) to the back. Meanwhile, the disk flange section (25) is provided with a connector section (35) and front edge sections (36) that curve radially inward from the front edge of the connector section (35). The front edge sections (36) are depressed toward the back relative to the peak side section (33) of the raised side sections (32). This automobile wheel (1), by means of the synergy between the shape effects of the spoke section (24) and the disk flange section (25), improves strength and rigidity for withstanding radial loads and bending/torsional loads.
