Toyota Alphard on a set of Vorsteiner V-FF 107 Wheels!
As the pioneers of the aftermarket industry, we’re well known for our specialization in wheels and suspension systems! As such, we received an inquiry from a potential client from the east coast, in the state of Kelantan! Our client stated that he was annoyed with the bouncy and floaty ride of his Toyota Alphard. As such, he drove some 700 kilometers to our office and had a glance at the available suspension options for his Toyota!

Our client was running a set of lowering springs on his factory shock absorbers, therefore, the ride and handling characteristics of his Alphard were severely compromised! Thoroughly floaty, our client was in dire need of a suspension revamp!
Upon reaching our location and being briefed of his available suspension options, our client selected the Kayaba SR Sport suspension system that was specifically designed for fitment on the Toyota Alphard. As he confirmed his purchase for the suspension system, he waited in our office and had a glance at the various wheel design options available for his vehicle. From various brands and various wheel designs, the Vorsteiner V-FF 107 in their signature Titanium Machined finish caught his attention and given that his Toyota was running a set of undersized 18-inch wheels, he took the plunge and confirmed his purchase for a set of 20-inch Vorsteiner V-FF 107 wheels!
When we write on Vorsteiner’s alloy wheel selections, we often highlight Vorsteiner’s wheel’s tendency of being lighter than any other wheel in the segment and for a large-sized vehicle like this, it definitely makes a huge difference! Vorsteiner’s wheels are on average about 30 -40% lighter than a comparably sized wheel and that in itself makes a huge difference in vehicular dynamics and driving confidence!
The weight savings aren’t just a gimmick as Vorsteiner’s concern is with the production of the very best and lightest wheels out there and naturally they only produce Flow Forged and Forged wheels with no interest of using any outdated cast manufacturing methods. These wheels are a set of Flow Forged alloys and, this manufacturing method translates into a wheel that’s drastically light than other wheels out there which improve vehicular dynamics massively! Speaking from a mechanical point of view, the weight of a vehicle is supported by its suspension components (e.g. shock absorbers, springs and, etc.) however, nothing else can hold up or support the weight of a vehicle’s wheels. The low weight figure of the wheels enable a vehicle to push harder, handle better and all thanks to weight reduction!
The wheels were fitted in a size of 9J x 20 inches in a square format and with the aggressive Vorsteiner offsets, the installed wheels sit flush within the fenders of the Toyota. The dimensions of the wheel itself are larger than it’s factory wheel specifications and this gives the Toyota a wider contact patch on the tarmac, enhancing grip & performance! The new 20-inch V-FF 107 wheels were wrapped up with a set of Michelin’s Pilot Sport 4S Tires!
The entire wheel & tire combo was fitted via a set of BLOX Sport’s Forged Aluminum wheel nuts of which were finished in Gloss Black which added even more sportiness. As a whole, the 20-inch V-FF 107 wheel in its Titanium Machined finish adds a whole lot of sportiness into the Toyota’s aesthetics whilst boosting its dynamic capabilities! With these wheels installed, the Toyota Alphard looks amazing as compared to when it was running its tiny 18 inch wheels! After all was said and done, he was excited to flaunt the new looks of his Toyota Alphard as its looks had been completely revamped and refreshed after the Vorsteiner wheel installation! Upgraded driving dynamics with eye-catching aesthetics!
