Which are your fav wheels?

Post by el_jelly »

I prefer the old school stuff, although many of them are being copied today. My two favorites of all time:

BBS RS - best wheel of all time, on almost any car it looks good and even better on our civics.

Image
Image

SSR formula mesh - another great one and my fav on the civic4g.

Image
Image

What about these hotties
SSR Challenge Racing Defi's - back in their time they looked so futuristic but at the same time classic, sick wheels with a sick offset.

Image
Image
Image

DOPE!

Some more
SSR Takechi Project/Racing Hart Super mesh

SSR Takechi Project/Racing Hart Super fins

Nice. i'm not a big fan of convex wheels but had to admit those look great.

Some more I like.
Work Meister S1 - this is one of the most copied wheels I think. Almost every brand has a wheel of the same design...but can't imitate those insane offsets of the originals. I've seen them in almost every color but I prefer them black.
Image
Image

Another knock-off by every brand
Work Equip 03 - how many have you seen with this design?
Image
Image
Image

Another work design I love
Work Equip 01 - at some time there were a lot of 3 spoke wheels and the rest have 5 or more. However work came with a 4 spoke design that became an instant classic, beautiful rims for our cars.

This meshies don't get much credit but they are nice too
Enkei 92

I'm almost 100% positive that the minilites are the originals, everything else is a knockoff. Of course if you make a high quality knock off for long enough, it can sometimes become more weel known than the original, as is the case with the panasports...
Now people make knock-offs of knock-offs, as is the case with the XXR banana sports, even playing with the name of "panasport"

They are jdm old wheels and is common for them to come 4x100, however there are adapters for making other wheels fit in a different hub combination.
