Hot from my inbox is news that HRE has launched the new Competition C90S series of wheels today and I can already pick out what I think will be one of the favorites. The new series consists of three designs but the wheel that sticks out the most to me is the C96S. When I first saw it I thought this is likely what the offspring of a TE37 and a BBS LM would look like yet it is still uniquely HRE. The three piece construction makes it look elegant while the spoke design evokes some serious strength and motorsport readiness. In fact, the C96S is the wheel of choice for the crazy Pikes Peak NSX built by LoveFab Inc. which has been making the Internet rounds lately.
I would expect to see a lot more of this wheel and the other wheels in the new C90S line at this year’s SEMA show.

It has been a while since I have done a wheel post so jumping back into it I wanted to make sure I came back with something good. Thus, I present to you the Vorsteiner VS-310! This is one of the few “split-spoke” designs from Vorsteiner and like the other split spoke designs the VS-310 has a nice aggressive look. Sizes start at 19″ and go up to 22″ and widths go from 8″ to 13″ so you can go big and wide if you want. I will pause here so you can form your double entendres….got them? OK! Anyhow, the VS-310 is a pretty sweet wheel for the Euro guys, heck you might want to sport this with some of the higher end Japanese cars. I can see the VS-310 looking very nice on a Lexus IS, Acura NSX, or even a Nissan 370Z.
