As turbofans In autotuning, it is referred to steel plates screwed onto the rims, which are designed to fan cooling air during the journey. For many car enthusiasts, they are currently very popular, especially because of their visual appearance, but they also fulfill a not to despise function. Turbofans are not only made of steel but also of aluminum, plastic or carbon. Depending on the purpose (race track, exhibition vehicle, etc.), the turbofans (often from the manufacturer BBS) installed accordingly on the vehicle.
Attention likelihood of confusion!
The term turbofan can mean two very different things and you shouldn't confuse them when equipping your car. In English and often in German it is usually used for so-called turbofan engines. These are used as jet turbines and mounted on your car would of course be illegal and extremely dangerous - albeit quite interesting ^^. If we are into autotuning from turbofans speak, but we usually mean round plates, which are screwed on (before) the rims of cars and at the rear side at the edge of smaller plates such as rotor plates are attached. Through it creates a draft during the ride, which cools the brake disc. The invention comes from motorsport, where due to the high speeds often very violent braking maneuvers are necessary. With each braking, friction heat is generated at the brake and so it gets hotter with repeated braking maneuvers. The hotter the brake, the worse it slows down. Therefore, the brake system of a race car needs additional cooling in addition to the optimized brake.
Turbofans for your car
If you do not happen to be a racing driver yourself, your brakes should never be so heavily loaded that such a cooling system really does for your car necessary becomes. Nevertheless, it is cool to own it and many car fans appreciate Turbo fans also because of the large and eye-catching hubcap, which can be even label or even decorate. If you plan to equip your car with cool and cooling turbo fans you should pay a lot of attention. The most important thing in the assembly is that the fans really have to sit firmly on the rims. However, freely rotating attachments on the rims, which may still turn on after stopping to make the brakes sound sensible, are banned in Germany and after a few seconds they will be off by themselves anyway. They are not real turbofans, they will Spinning Wheels called. In Germany permissible turbofans you buy the best in retailers.
We strongly advise against doing handicrafts yourself. It is hard to believe that one of the most sought-after terms in this regard is "build your own turbofans". If you want something individual, the best way to express your creativity is to use the bought genuine Cool fans or order the same with a chic look. To make sure that the turbofans can not solve themselves while driving, you should definitely have the assembly made by an experienced professional in a tuning workshop and not experimenting in your own garage at home. A metal or carbon plate, which dissolves while driving can easily be thrown against another vehicle with violent force and even if it rattles only on the street someone could make a sudden emergency stop in fright or tear his vehicle and make it a heavy Accident come.
Avoid buying Turbofans Replicas
Look best on the shelf of BBS for turbofans and clarify in any case beforehand whether your desired turbofan blessings of the TÜV and thus legally operated as a brake fan. In particular, make sure that you do not make a cheap turbofan replica. Often dubious sellers offer quite officially BBS RS TURBOFAN copies with the keywords "Turbo Fans", "Brake Fan Rad Fans" or "Turbo Fan Fan Wheels".
