Having soared to popularity in recent years, Aodhan Wheels (or AodHán) are making a name for themselves in the tuning scene.

In this guide, we’re checking out the history of Aodhan Wheels, and what their wheel range has to offer.

Who Are Aodhan Wheels?

Despite being in the industry for more than ten years, Aodhan’s recent popularity has helped the brand make a name for itself.

With an extensive range of reasonably-priced wheels, it’s easy to see why so many tuning enthusiasts are eager to check out the Aodhan Wheels line-up.

Based in Hayward, California, the team at Aodhan (pronounced “Odd-Han”) aims to set itself apart from the lower-quality budget wheels on the market, focusing on quality while retaining the reasonable price-point that they’re known for.

If you’re interested to know more about the brand, make sure you check out the video below from our buddies at Fitment Industry.

The first wheels in the Aodhan Wheels catalog were the ‘AH’ series, which we’ll be checking out shortly, and the majority of these designs were marketed towards the JDM scene, basing the wheels on familiar classics.

As the ‘AH’ series earned the brand a positive reputation in the market, they opted to focus specifically on the drifting and stance scenes, providing wide, aggressive fitments with their ‘DS’ series.

For those looking to fill out the fenders on their widebody kit, the ‘DS’ series provides a fantastic solution, offering 18 and 19” diameters, along with up to 11” width wheels, with up to 4” dish.

While the likes of Work Wheels are at the forefront of providing the ultimate quality and materials, they come with a price tag to match, which isn’t always an ideal solution for drifters, which is where Aodhan arrives to provide a far cheaper alternative.

For those of you a little too familiar with destroying wheels, being able to buy known-and-loved designs at a fraction of the price will undoubtedly be a temptation.

While it might not earn you too many scene points, you’ll have the last laugh when you have more cash on upgrades.

As the ‘DS’ line saw continued success for the brand, it was time to move into the ‘LS’ range, this time bringing Euro styling to the luxury market, alongside the big-power track and drifting sectors – perfect for those with gigantic brake setups.

The most recent addition to the Aodhan squad has been the arrival of the ‘AFF’ series, which brings even more unique designs.

However, designs aren’t the only thing that the ‘AFF’ series has to offer, as this new premium range provided the opportunity for the brand to move into the ‘flow forged’ sector, bringing their most robust yet lightest wheels to date.

With this extensive range, the brand can now target the entire market of performance, drifting, luxury, and stock/OEM vehicles, which is why we feel it’s the perfect time to check out what Aodhan Wheels has to offer.


How Are Aodhan Wheels Made?

Aodhan implements several different methods when it comes to creating their wheels, varying between their product ranges.

Single-Phase Forging

Firstly, they have ‘Single Phase Forging,’ typically used in their ‘AH’ and ‘LS’ series wheels. Aodhan states:

To achieve a wheel that is lightweight and uncompromising in strength Single Phase Forging begins with an unmatched quality aluminum Cast center, which is then met with pressurized rollers to stretch the wheel to the desired specifications.

Single Phase Forging allows for a great range of wheel widths within each design. Using this technology, we create a wheel that is stronger and lighter, very similar to a full forged wheel at a much more reasonable cost.

You can read more about the Single Phase Forging process on their website.

Dual-Phase Forging

Next up is their superior ‘Dual-Phase Forging’ process, commonly found in their ‘DS’ series wheels, with Aodhan stating:

Beginning from a cast center born from the finest raw materials, the wheel is spun at a high rate of speed, while at the same time unique circular rollers add extreme pressure to the inner barrel, similar to single-phase forging, but goes a step further.

Utilizing this process to the outer lip simultaneously. Creating a stronger compressed barrel as well as a larger lip uncompromising in strength.

Advanced-Flow Forging

Finally, the most impressive wheels in the Aodhan range are their ‘AFF’ series, which featured ‘Advanced Flow Forging’ technology.

Utilizing Advanced Flow Forging enables Aodhan to produce their most robust yet lightest wheels to date, with Aodhan stating, “Advanced flow forging technology introduces a new and industry-leading process to better the wheel.

This process allows the wheel to be much lighter than maintain a stronger structural integrity. the AFF series opens the market to consumers looking for the sizing and aggressiveness of a large wheel but will still maintain a lightweight strong application.

Aodhan explains this process more in-depth here.


Are Aodhan Wheels Good Quality?

Unlike many cheaper wheels on the market, Aodhan is keen to provide superior quality than its competitors while still ensuring affordability.

Speaking on their quality standards, Aodhan stated – “The test production and verification process is carried out strictly according to the condition of test production: CMM dimensional inspection, leak detection inspection, and imbalance inspection as well as Impact, bending and rolling test. All of our wheels exceed fatigue and rolling resistance and CASS corrosion testing standards.


Now that you’ve gained a thorough understanding of the company, it’s time to check out the exceptional value wheels that the Aodhan Wheels has to offer.
