Offset is best

28 01 2009

Wheels maketh any car, but it’s not just a case of finding the widest wheels you can and going as low as possible, oh no… (granted it helps). It’s all about getting the stance and offset corrent, having too much tyre poking out looks weird, too much stretch – weird again. So what actually defines good offset?

Random: keg-spec dish wheels

27 01 2009

Paul @ JDMGarageUK.com has been busy developing one of the best web features we’ve ever seen, giving UK and European buyers the ability to buy anything they like from the Yahoo Japan auctions with JDMGarageUK sorting the shipping and handling.

Anyways, this means we’re finally able to get our hands on some of the most gangster wheels around for a budget price, check out the examples below:

600x450-2008080300005

15x14in 100-spoke wires, single pair for £300

600x450-2008102800037

3-piece BBS in 14x13in, £250

18x13in SSR Koneig splits, £1060 set of four

up_select-img600x450-1227534298gm8fni64755

18x13in Rays Forged GT300 wheel – up for just £250, there’s a matching rear for just £100! Someone buy these…

Throttle bodies?

Not quite, 15x13in Cherry Blossom Sakuras, the rarest of rare rares. Believed to be one of only 3 pairs in this width, expect to pay £3000 for the pair, but uber JDM retro points in the process.





Coolest BBS rims yet?

21 01 2009

While we all love BBS splits here at Max it does get a bit tiring seeing the same old black centres or gold bolts on designs like the RM012s.

This however is one of the best ‘unique’ touches we’ve seen on any rims, heck it’s up there with the rainbow-painted Impreza!
