Rays Gram Lights 57XV wheels
New for April 2011.
Cast 1 Piece Wheel.
These are the latest one piece wheels design from RAYS targetting the ECO car market. The return of the Light Weight Concept is evident in these wheels. They are a double 5 spoke design separated by an additional spoke creating a fan like 15 spoke rim. These offers excellent rigidity. This also means the spokes can be thinner for a lighter design almost rivalling a forged model.
Weight for 17inch is approx. 7.9kg / 18inch is approx. 8.6kg.
They are targeted directly at the cost effective sports eco car like the CR-Z and Prius. These cars are being tuned for dress up and improved performance in Japan. This market is increasingly popular with offsets specifically chosen for the latest vehicles.
Gram Lights wheels are cheaper than the Volk Racing range, hence making them a very popular wheel to use for the street. Your car will look great!
RAYS makes a large number of aluminum wheel products using casting methods. Casting, a time-honored technique which involves pouring molten aluminum into dies, does not present the same difficulties as forging. Consequently, casting provides excellent cost performance and allows great freedom of design. Even while casting enables complex design and interesting details, it is essential to ensure that the product retains fundamental strength as a wheel.
No matter how radical it looks, any cast wheel made by RAYS provides excellent performance. Each represents a balance of styling and commitment to core performance born of experience with racing wheels. From 2009, in the form of similar 57 Motor Sport G07WT wheels fitted to the Leon Cupra of SEAT Sport UK, RAYS is competing in the BTCC (British Touring Car Team Championship), which has regulations stipulating the use of cast wheels. While the size and offset of these competition wheels is special, in terms of materials and basic performance, they are the same as RAYS retail wheels.
RAYS has a pragmatic approach to creating excellent products and has set out its own JWL+R standards for basic aluminum wheel strength. All the loading values exceed the JWL standards and other original test categories have been added. Every wheel made by RAYS has to conform to basic JWL+R strength standards.
