The Return of the TE37

dura_555Two years back Rays Engineering showed a TE37 prototype featuring machined spokes which made the 22×9 wheel only 17 pounds. After some adjustments Rays settled on the new TE037 DURA which is a little more extreme than the original prototype. Big note to point out is that this new TE037 is constructed from A7075 versus A6061, which makes it that much better. All in all expect the TE037 to make a lot of waves.

2015 saw the emergence of the TE37 ULTRA, probably the closest iteration to the original TE37 since it was released 20 years back. While 20 and 19 inch sizes got the new treatment, 18’s were left out. saga_557Enter TE37 SAGA, these are exclusively 18 inch and come in all the sizes under the sun. And best of all this is pretty darn close to the OG model and comes standard with a Bronze finish. Pictures and full details are still up in the air, but expect more info this upcoming week!

 

Player 2 (Weds Wheels) Has Entered

Weds Wheels has been quietly building up quite the arsenal in it’s performance wheel line-up. To this day the TC-105N is the lightest cast wheel in the market (topping the all mighty Enkei RPF1), however their entire line-up featured Flow Formed Cast wheels only. This kept them out of certain high-end performance markets with the lack of forged options. 15874781_1332836920071537_7828604514629935141_oThis year that all changes, as WedsSport released the FT-117 (a Closed-Die Mold Form Forged wheel comparable to the likes of Rays and BBS). Sizing is currently slated for large performance vehicles, 20-inch sizing, but a forged wheel from WedsSports bodes well for future designs!

2017 Preview: Enkei NT03-RR

nt03rr_mdg

For 2017 Enkei has the new NT03RR in the works. The standard version is still available in the USA, but has been discontinued in Japan for over two year now. Given the popular design, Enkei decided to revive an old wheel program designed for the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 where special NT03 were engineered for the chassis. Code named the NT03-RR, these wheels took the engineering design to the limit, but due to the design limitations and technology at the time (about 15 years ago) the wheels were never mass produced.

The RR code name was eventually revived with the RS05-RR and GTC01-RR, so it’s only fitting that the NT03-RR be made. After all, they are the original design. Plus given the advancements in tech and manufacturing, the production can finally match the design!

OG Volk TE37: Special Batch

20 years ago, RAYS Engineering debuted the original Volk Racing TE37 forged mono-block wheel. Little did they know this would become their flagship design and usher in an incessantly successful line of iterations; SL, RT, and ULTRA just to name a few.

However, despite all the in-house spin-offs and illegal imitations, the OG TE37 design still holds a certain je ne sais quoi that has never been replicated. Celebrate 20 years of success and own a set of iconic wheels with this limited run of 19-Inch TE37 Wheels!

5867667663_6236a6c2a3_o
