Volk is at it again. They’ve released the RT version of the CE28N in select sizes. The wheel looks great and we’re starting to see more high offset wide wheels in 5×100!! The BRZ/FRS/WRX crowd should be doing a jig or at the very least break dancing in public.
Starting with the excellent design of the CE28N, Volk stepped it up made it stronger, lighter and RED!!. As with the TE37RT the Logo on the spokes is now etched into the wheel instead of the traditional sticker. These really look great, I wish they had some more sizes available. Maybe we can get a push for some 18×10 +40mm versions. :naughty:
It’s Wednesday in Japan, so why not show off a new wheel from Enkei Japan. There has been some chatter about the RS05RR lately since it’s due to finally hit American shores in a few months, time to stir up some interest in the brand new Enkei GTC01RR!! Classic split six spoke design with multiple faces available, and some really nice proposed sizes. Enough talk, take a look at the photos, tell me what you think. Will these be your next set of wheels? Buy Karlton Flares to allow you to run the Rear face on all 4 corners? It’s tempting.
Quick little write up about the new Volk Racing TE37RT. Volk released the info on this wheel earlier in the year and it’s time for an article. The TE37 RT is concave in many different sizes and they even offer an 18×10 in 5×100!! Unfortunately for BBK equipped BRZ/FRS and 04 STI owners the 18×10 +44mm 5×100 doesn’t clear brembos.
The TE37RT is only available in Red, it’s still your standard TE37 6 spoke and it shares a similar concave setup as the TE37SL. It comes in only a select few sizes, but they cover a wide range of applications. Including the BRZ, FRS, STi, EVO, Porsche, GTR etc. Continue reading Volk Racing TE37RT | New Wheel info!!→
If any of you guys follow me on instagram @t3hclap you’ll notice I was getting all excited over a picture posted by @kent_enkei_Wheels_jp. After I saw the wheel I did some digging. I knew Enkei had a few new wheels up their sleeves but this one really stands out.
The Enkei RS05RR. It comes in 3 different faces and some very nice size options. It’s good to see Enkei come out with an 18×11!!
Rays Engineering has released another killer new wheel this year. The GramLight 57DR. It’s a six spoke wheel based off of the GramLight 57D which was based off the GramLight 57Maximum. Great lineup of wheels each one out doing the next. The GramLight 57DR is available for special order from many different Rays vendors. Don’t hesitate to shoot us email if you’re looking for vendors to source any wheels seen on the blog.
On to the wheel sizes.
17Ã—9 (+12, +22, +38)
18Ã—9.5 (+12, +22, +38)
18Ã—10.5 (+12, +22)
All of them clear the Subaru Impreza WRX STi brembo calipers except the 17Ã—9 +38mm.
These in 18Ã—9.5 +38mm would be awesome on a GR STi.
The 18×10.5 +12mm would be perfect for a Karlton Fender Flare equipped GD STi. 🙂
