Say hello to the GramLight 57C6. It’s a classically designed 6 spoke wheel. GramLight chose to go extreme with the faces for the 57C6. Going wider on the 57C6 to get extremely concave, so much so it causes some caliper clearance issues. Luckily with the help of a consulting client and our friends at Penguin Garage we were able to get some test fitting. Below you’ll find the breakdown of the available sizes and the known issues. Plus a few pictures!
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. 🙂
Anyone ordered them yet?
I don’t normally post random “holy crap this is awesome” posts, but there is a first for everything.
The recently updated Rays Engineering site is really amazing. The functionality is increased along with speed and usability.
Check it out and give me your thoughts.
This will make searching easier and should help expose some of the lesser known Rays brands.
Recently Rays decided to address the growing market of hybrids and Eco friendly automotive junkies.
The Eco Project released a few wheels designed specifically for increasing in fuel economy (doesn’t hurt the looks any either).
This will be a short article as there is only one 57Motorsport wheel that will clear the STi Brembos. The 57Motorsport G07WT
