The 3-piece wheel follows the same construction principles but the rim is created from two separate halves. This allows to create a far greater range of widths and offsets for a single wheel design. To create a different width/offset only requires that the front or back half of the rim be changed. There are far more offset, backspace and width options available with 3-piece wheels. Damage control is another benefit of 2 or 3-piece wheels. The stronger forged material is more resilient against bumps and scrapes, but even if the wheel is damaged, repairs are usually cheaper because only the damaged wheel section need be replaced, not the whole wheel.
