Konig Hexaform Wheel Review
August 24, 2022
Is the Konig Hexaform A Good Car Wheel?
What's going on everybody? We're doing another review today, and this time, we'll be taking a look at a relatively new player in the aftermarket wheel space that's already been making waves, thanks in large part to how it looks, but also how it can actually increase the performance of your vehicle.
It's the Konig Hexaform, one of the latest in Konig's truly iconic lineup of top-tier aftermarket car wheels. Today we'll be taking you through the Hexaform's best design features, sizing specs, performance capabilities, and a whole lot more, so let's not waste any more time - let's dive right in!
How Many Profiles Does the Konig Hexaform Have?
The Hexaform is a six-spoke design that was released in 2020, and it actually comes in two different spoke profile configurations. First, you're gonna have the eight profile which designates a more convex spoke profile. Now, you might be asking yourself: "If concave spoke profiles are all the rage, why even have a convex-designed wheel in the first place?" and that's for big brake clearance. Essentially, what this does is it pushes the innermost portion of the spokes further away from the back pad of the wheel, because at the end of the day, 90% of brake clearance issues happen towards the back portion of the back pad versus the middle or upper portion.
Top Design Features of the Konig Hexaform Car Wheel
But what we're gonna talk about today is the B profile of the Hexaform, which is the concave spoke design version - good God is this thing hot. We've always loved the Hexaform, but this concave profile really takes it to the next level. Let's start with the PCD (Pitch Circle Diameter) area, which is just the diameter of how the bolt holes are configured. On this B profile, the actual depth of this area is much smaller than you're gonna find on the A profile, where the spokes are out further.
Moving outward, you can already see the concavity of how the spoke design of the Hexaform is at an angle as it works out to the lip. Now, the spoke design being a six-spoke configuration is - for lack of a better world - pretty basic, but we like what they did with it, having the addition of webbing in the windows. Also, it's cool how the webbing flows up and into the barrel, so you only have it in the V and not quite all the way through the rest of it.
Probably one of our favorite design elements on the entire wheel, though, is how the face design itself actually protrudes from the step lip a little bit. There's an additional lip around the entire face, and this is gonna help you get more caliper clearance - with that, the way the light works within this area to highlight the face itself and make the lip appear to be almost a separate piece is really nice attention to detail.
Center Cap Features and Weight of the Konig Hexaform
Also on the Hexaform you'll see the FlowFormed designation and Konig logo, and you know what that means? That means that using this flow forming process, these 18x10.5 +18 wheels weigh in at just over 19.5 pounds, which is really impressive. Going back to the classic Konig center cap, this one actually has hardware inside it that holds it onto the wheel, which is a pretty smart design to us. It means that when you thrash these things on the track, or you hit a big pothole, these things aren't gonna go anywhere - they won't pop off or get lost or anything.
Sizing Options of the Konig Hexaform Car Wheel
Sizing for the Hexaform is available in the following diameters and widths listed below:
Bolt patterns here hit 4x100 for 15 and 17 inch diameters; 4x108 for the 17 inch diameters; 5x100 in 17 and 18 inch diameters with 8 and 9 inch widths; 5x108 for the 18x8.5 size; 5x112 on 17x8 and 18x8.5 sizes; 5x114.3 on 17 and 18 inch diameters; and 5x120 on the 18 inch diameter only.
Finish Options and Pricing of the Konig Hexaform
Two finishes are available for the Konig Hexaform: Matte Black and Matte Bronze. This is a super nice matte finish, by the way - most of them that we see at this price point are pretty rough, and then those are kind of hard to clean. On the Hexaform, though, it's very smooth and almost more of a dull satin - very nice.
Speaking of price, the Hexaform starts at just $616 for a full set of 15x7.5s. 17s start at under $850, and then 18s start at just $1000. The biggest 10-inch wide concave profiles max out at just $1068 for a flow-formed, lightweight, really cleanly designed wheel. That's a really good value no matter how you shake it.
