Final week, Dino confirmed you what wheels RAYS had on show from their present and classic catalogues at the 2022 RAYS Fan Assembly. Now it’s time to see what wheels the folks of Japan introduced to indicate off.
Strolling round within the rain, I did my finest to hunt out essentially the most fascinating wheels, and that is what I discovered…
We’ll bypass the commerce stands which greeted punters, as a result of the automobiles on show wore all kinds of wheels from throughout the globe. At present, it’s all about RAYS.
I’m certain you’ll keep in mind this fats NSX from my first publish. What do you consider the proprietor’s alternative of Gram Lights 57XTREME SPEC-Ds? I believe they work nicely with the angular traces of the Honda and this physique package.
In all honesty, for essentially the most half I had no thought what I used to be , such is the depth of RAYS’ catalogues previous and current and the timelessness of their designs. However I’m not too involved with mannequin numbers; I simply know what I like.
The variety of totally different wheels was additionally testomony to the unbreakable manufacturing methods which have made the RAYS identify synonymous with sturdiness and high quality. These Volk Racing GT-Cs have little doubt been across the traps just a few instances.
Whereas there are positively exceptions to the rule (the beforehand talked about NSX for instance) I usually assume that period-correct wheels look finest on outdated automobiles. Working example, I consider it’s a legal offence to have fashionable wheels – and silver in addition – on an outdated Subaru. I just like the wheels, simply not on this explicit automotive. Is anybody with me?
Some wheels although, (sure, the TE37, preserve your wig on), look good on something – even with raindrops on my lens – from dinky sports activities automobiles to ginormous off-roaders. The TE37XT is the 4×4 model of the traditional.
A set of RAYS can remodel an earthly people-mover into a troublesome city utility automobile. They will additionally make an FJ cruiser seem like a military corporal carrying New Stability trainers within the battlefield. It’s positively distinctive.
A little bit extra smart and relatable is that this 86 with a set of bronze Volk Racing 21Cs. That’s absolute fitment perfection in my eyes. I believe the ‘L’ rims go well with this wheel significantly better than the ‘LLL’ deep-dish model.
After all, the GT automobiles on show confirmed of wheels that make avenue automobiles seem like Tomica automobiles by comparability. After seeing the total carbon fiber Supra GT500 automotive on the Osaka Auto Messe, I’m nonetheless ready to see a street authorized GT automotive sometime. Can somebody please make that occur, I’m a bit quick on money this month…
I believe you could possibly most likely match an oil drum to every nook of an FD3S RX-7 and it could nonetheless look ace, however these Volk Racing Problem wheels are so good. They’re most likely a bit lighter than an oil drum too.
These Volk Racing GT7s had been an actual spotlight for me – very cool.
No, your eyes should not deceiving you, this NSX is carrying two totally different finishes on its TE37s. I’ll be capable to let you know why quickly, as I’m capturing this and a pair extra automobiles from the blokes at LEVEL1.
For essentially the most half, folks at this occasion had been rocking varied variations of the TE37. I believe is as a result of a lot of the automobiles fell into the fashionable traditional class, which is precisely what the TE37 is. The rain most likely stored the kyusha automobiles from turning as much as showcase extra of the classic mesh and star designs from the RAYS again catalogue.
Naturally then, the spotlight of my day was seeing these solid Volk Racing Genome SE37W rolling previous me. The proprietor informed me, as he parked his minivan, that “they’re from 20 years in the past.” These are the moments I reside for.
I’m glad I braved the rain on the RAYS Fan Assembly, as a result of I’ve now lastly realized among the mannequin names for among the finest wheels on the earth.
