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.


Enkei Fall Sale

14 Nov

We have a very limited number of Enkei NT03+M and RPF1 Racing Wheels on Special right now. Only good while current quantities last


Enkei NT03+M

Enkei NT03+M White

The NT03+M from Enkei is an exceptionally strong, lightweight wheel that has been a very popular choice among racers in both Japan and the US. The open spoke design helps promote ample brake cooling. These wheels also feature Enkei’s dual valvestem, which allows you to accurately moniter tire pressure while adding or taking away air or nitrogen. Additional features include Enkei’s unique brace ring (the second ring on the spoke section) which ensures the wheel does not deflect or distort under the heavy loads associated with track use.

Enkei RPF1 Silver

The RPF1 pays homage to the MCClaren F1 Team wheels you may be familar with. This wheel is a popular choice for track and street as it combines unique good looks, extreme lightweight, and a very good value per dollar. Using Enkei’s proprietary M.A.T. and T.S. processes (a bit of alphabet soup, but it’s worth reading!), Enkei has been able to manufacture a light weight wheel at an affordable cost with very high strength. Enkei developed a new manufacturing process to produce the next aluminum wheel generation. The Most Advanced Technology (M.A.T) combines one-piece cast wheel technology with a rim forming technology called spinning process. Using this new technology of casting and rim forming by M.A.T process, is critical to improve drastically the material property and strength of the wheels. Rim-Rolled technology shapes the rim to improve material elongation withoutsacrificing the wheels hardness. Heat treatment makes the aluminum wheel stronger and more resilient to stress. The M.A.T Process makes the wheels more resistant to cracking when the wheels are put through extreme racing conditions. Wheels manufactured with the M.A.T Process are made with the minimum amount of aluminum to make the wheels lighter while remaining strong and safe.
