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!

WedsSport TC105N ND-Spec

The WedsSport TC105N has proven time and time again to be the lightest cast wheel in the market (sorry Enkei RPF1). With the release of the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 (also known as Miata, Roadster, etc etc), it’s not a surprise that Weds decided to release a special size suited for the ND chassis given it’s return to the 4×100 PCD (the Miata jumped to 5×114.3 PCD with the NC).

The Smurf on WEDS.

Wheels…a decision not taken lightly. It usually comes with endless internet searches, forum lurking, and asking your tuner friends over & over what their opinions are! Though, if your fixed on a specific wheel, you do what Danny Hong out of Virginia did…you make it fit!

Even catching the attention of WEDSSPORT, Danny customized his BMW 316i bolt pattern to accompany these beautiful tc105n’s. Originally a 5×120 bolt pattern, he had inserts customized to accommodate a 5×114.3 mm pattern that the tc105n’s posses.
