Enkei has done some interesting stuff this year. They have re-released certain designs and have introduced a few new designs as well. What you see here is one of the new wheels added to Enkei’s 2011 line up dubbed the Fujin. Enkei’s goal with this 7 spoke design was all about weight and strength. They build the Fujin using their patented M.A.T. process and as such the 18 inch size of the Fujin comes in at just 19.5lbs while the 17 inch size weighs 17.5lbs. To pull this off while also having an attractive design is an accomplishment worth noting. I can easily see the Fujin being the new gotta have wheel of the modern sport compact set.
A while back we showed you a preview of the Enkei PF01 and its been available to the masses for a while now. I haven’t seen it too much in the wild and I can’t seem to figure out why. This is a pretty fresh wheel and based on the design it seems that this wheel could be pretty verstile style wise. What do you think?
A little while ago Enkei dropped a teaser image of a new wheel dubbed the PF01 that will make its debut at this year’s SEMA. According to Enkei the new PF01 will be “ultra-lightweight” and will actually come in less than the RPF1 on the scales. We’ll try to keep you posted on this until it makes it’s official drop on November 2nd. If the front looks anywhere near as good as the back then this wheel is going to blow up big.
I just caught wind of this on Enkei’s blog and holy flarking schmit these wheels are FRESH! RPF1′s in matte bronze! Just when I think the whole “matte” thing is getting played out I find someone else doing it in a completely new and fresh way. These things are badA$$! But you can only get them in this color from Oakos Automotive a specialty shop for suby owners. Imagine these on a blue STi! SICK!
This is the Enkei RC-T4. I really love the way this wheel looks but unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on who you are) this wheel is meant for competition use only. Which is pretty obvious from the looks as its clearly a rally style wheel but with a bit of a stylish twist. Maybe if I ever find myself with a purpose built Evo one day I’ll pick up a set of these. In the meantime I’ll just daydream about what could have been…ahh..
