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.
SSR TypeC “RS”
These abreviations stand for Speed Star Racing Type Competition Light Weight "Racing Spec"
SSR TypeC wheel is a lightweight race style wheel that is equally at home when used on the road. With cars producing more and more power their goal was to answer this request for more power and handle the stresses it places on braking and grip from the tire. This 2 Piece rim is constructed using a SSF semi-melted forging manufacturing method for the face combined with the HTM heat treatment inner rim for the requirements of “Super Heat Quantity and High Rigidity”.
The 6 Spoke design is very aggressive and features curved spokes and a deep centre cavity that have been recently copied by many manufacturers. The colour choices are also only for dramatic effect that suit 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 17 and 18 and 19 inch designs and common offsets to suit most Japanese cars. For similar design in smaller sizes please see the normal version of the TypeC wheel.
Two colours are available. Gun Metallic and Bronze.
