Making of a Borrani

Ruote Milano srl, located in Rozzano, in the southern part of Milan, has recently taken over the production of Borrani wire wheels. This included all the historical tooling, machines and materials, the specialized workforce, and the complete technical archives, which go back to 1922. All of this is now located in a 3000 sq-m factory specially renovated for this purpose.


Even the most sophisticated robots cannot replace the capable hands of workers who make Borrani wheels with enthusiasm and skill, with the highest quality and reliability as final objectives. Ruote Milano's first target is to supply the complete historical Borrani product range, including wire wheels for competition use and special products.


Ruote Milano produces Borrani wheels for classic and vintage cars including: Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Austin-Healey, Chevrolet, Cisitalia, Ferrari, Ford, Iso, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Lancia, Lotus, Maserati, Mercedes, MG, Osca, and Porsche. And for formula race cars, small sports barchettas and formula Junior such as Bandini, Ermini, Stanguellini and many more.
Ruote Milano offers professional restoration of existing Borrani wheels with steel or aluminium rims, including the replacement of all spokes, balancing, polishing, chroming and/or painting.


It is also possible to manufacture Borrani wheels for those cars, which were not originally equipped with them. Typical spare parts like hubs, drums, locking nuts, 3 or 2 eared nuts and octagonal nuts are now available from stock.


Borrani wheels cannot have the following characteristics:


- the use of stainless steel spokes
- the absence of the above-mentioned stampings
- the use of spokes of different diameters in the same wheel
- the use of wrong-angled spokes
- the use of non-matching components according to the RW-code of the wheel


The mounting of a non-original, modified or unprofessionally restored wire wheel on your car can pose serious risks and can cause you harm and damages. It can affect the original approvals and homologation, as well as the handling and safety of your vehicle.


Wire wheels offered on the international market as 'Borrani style wheels' or 'Borrani replacements' by other parties have absolutely nothing to do with the original Borrani products and are not certified or authorized in any way to replace original Borrani products.
