A New Lightweight, Affordable Mesh Wheel

8 Feb

Konig unveiled the Integram wheel at SEMA and in the coming weeks, they will be arriving stateside. These are their newest flowform design, a manufacturing process that’s been around for about a decade, and produces a wheel that is both lightweight and incredibly strong, but affordable, since it’s not a forging process.

The Integram continues the naming trend Konig started a few years ago with the Kilogram and Milligram. The best part is, there are some terrific sizes available. How about 17×9 +42, or 18×9 +45 in a 5-100, or 18×10 +25 in a 5×114. Overall diameters are 17-19 with a variation of widths, offsets, and bol patters. Colors are matte black and matte graphite. Contact us for price and availability. These are new, so no weights or caliper clearance answers just yet, but as get ’em, we will post up.

Gauntlet Is Thrown

Varis is one of the few JDM firms left that are still turning out exciting designs. For 2014, they have their widebody kit for the Subaru Impreza WRX STi. 35mm wider than stock up front, 38mm wider out back with a range of carbon or FRP options. Pieces can thoughtfully be purchased as a full kit or individually. Varis items are all hand made, not mass produced, and fit and finish is absolutely first rate. As such, they are not inexpensive to produce, but that also means you won’t find replicas, and you won’t find 100 cars with them installed.
