Bentley unveils the world’s largest carbon-fibre wheels

The pricing for the carbon wheels will be announced later.

Bentley has unveiled what it claims to be the world’s largest carbon-fibre wheels to go into production. The wheels measure 22-inches in diameter and will debut on the Bentayga SUV later this year.

The luxury car brand claims that the wheels comply with Technical Inspection Association (TUV) standards. These are also the first carbon wheels ever produced to pass biaxial stress testing, radial & lateral impact testing, tyre over-pressure and other excessive torque tests.

The carbon wheels have also gone through a range of impact and performance tests, including testing on the Nurburgring Nordschleife, before its final sign off.

Bentley claims that apart from weight savings, the new carbon fibre wheels offer a number of advantages over aluminium rims. These include increased safety, better steering control, improved braking performance due to the reduced unsprung mass and reduced tyre wear.

The pricing for the carbon wheels will be announced later.
