SSR have been producing awesome wheels in Japan for some time under the name Speed Star Wheel and have recently joined forces with the Tanabe organisation. They supply many racing organisations and more recently their road wheels have been used successfully in the Time Attack arena by Nagisa Auto’s GTR and Sunline Racing’s machines. Their range has reduced to supply only a few choice wheels to keep quality up and consolidate on the wheels that are the best in their field. SSR believe that the wheel is the item that is given the task of putting the ultimate power to the road. That’s why their wheels are super light and super strong.
The abbreviations stand for Speed Star Racing Type Competition Light Weight
SSR TypeC wheel is a lightweight race style wheel that is equally at home when used on the road. The aim was to create the ultimate light weight wheel as well as giving the strength required for racing. The theme of “WELL BALANCED” was applied to this rim. This 1 Piece rim is constructed using SSR’s SSF semi-melted forging manufacturing method for the face and rim for the requirements of the well balanced wheel for competition. These rims are extremely popular for use on smaller front wheel drive cars in Japan.
The 6 Spoke design is aggressive and features curved spokes and a deep cenre cavity that have been recently copied by many manufacturers. The 14” design cannot replicate the deep centre however and is a slightly shallower design. The colour choices are also only for race effect that suits the modern track image of JDM specifications. Designed to WIN!
The centre caps are optional extras and should be purchased separately.
Wheels are available in 14 and 15 and 16 inch designs and common offsets to suit most smaller Japanese cars. For similar design in larger sizes please see the Racing Spec “RS” version of the TypeC wheel.
Three colours are available. White, Gun Metallic and Bronze.
