Sportec Launches Lightest 22-Inch Wheel Rims Designed for VW Touareg Luxury SUV Share Comments Höri b. Bülach (Zurich), March 2nd, 2004 – Following on from its 20 inch rims for Audi and VW, Sportec, the well-known Swiss car modification company, adds a worldwide exclusive new product to its multi-award winning range of wheel rims. The Mono/10 lightweight 10 x 22″ at only 14.8 kg is the lightest 22 inch wheel for Porsche Cayenne and VW Touareg luxury SUVs. It guarantees improved driveability thanks to lower unsprung mass. Just like the 20 inch wheel, it is manufactured using a special forging and milling process, making the new model extremely strong. The sporty 10-spoke rim fulfils the highest design demands and, in spite of its size, is extraordinarily elegant.
