RAYS Engineering in Japan recently rolled out a production runof the TE37SL (Super Lap) in a special edition gloss white color straight from the factory. The guys at Evasive Motorsports put in an order for sizes specific to the Mitsubishi Evo X (18×10.5 +15). So if you are an Evo driver you may want to jump on this ASAP. Note: because of the aggressive size if your Evo X is lowered you might need to roll your fenders to fit these bad boys on. A set of four will set you back just over $3k.

The CR from the Work Wheels “Emotion” line got a refresh in spoke design and in its manufacturing process. The new Emotion CR Ultimate “Kiwami” is produced using Work Wheels new “WORK Flowforming” AKA “spun forming”. In this process the barrel is made thinner without making it weaker. I’m not exactly sure how it works but it does. Either way I like the update to the look of the Emotion CR. The spokes look a bit sharper and cleaner and that is always a good thing!

One good wheel post deserves another. CEC recently announced the release of the c881, the newest in CEC’s signature line up. As you can see the c881 is CEC’s take on the classic “5 star” design which they pull off quite well. The shape of the spokes really gives a sense of strength and the the wheels look right at home on the corners of the Fisker Karma in the picture. Nicely done CEC!

Say hello to Forgeline’s latest addition to its “Performance Series” line, the GX3. Like their GA3R wheel the GX3 was made with Forgeline’s “I-Beamed” spoke technology which helps reduce weight. Titanium assembly bits also takes some poundage out of the GX3 as well. The wheel face is also specially designed for brake clearance no matter what big brake kit you may have. Manufacturing materials and techniques aside I think my favorite thing about the GXR is its classic Grand-Am racing mesh wheel design. In fact if you really want to go for that look Forgeline offers the GX3 in a centerlock application! FRESH!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dayton OH, April 12, 2010 – 2011 has been a great year for us so far and we have dedicated efforts into developing new products for the year. One of the new wheels that we have just finished is the GX3. With the introduction of the GA3R and our new “I-Beamed” spoke technology, we have incorporated the same technology to the new GX3 which reduces weight and applies additional strength in rigidity within the spokes of the wheel. Along with this, we have also employed titanium assembly hardware to further reduce additional weight and this hardware is hidden to follow the function of cleaning the wheels with ease. The unique design of the center of the GX3 allows for extreme caliper clearance to ensure proper fitment of big brake kit systems.
The GX3 will also feature our proprietary, super strength sealer that is fast drying and is highly resistant to leaks with accessibility for easy repairs. Just like all of our wheels, the GX3 is produced using our traditional forging methods, utilizing 6061-T6 aluminum with heat treated rim-shells. It wouldn’t be a FORGELINE wheel without all the customization options. Just like the rest of our line-up, the GX3 will have full customization capabilities from fitment to finish and will also be offered for centerlock applications. Currently, the GX3 is available in 18 and 20 inch diameters and widths will run from 7 to 15 inches. 19 inch fitments will be available late Spring with a Summer release for 17 inch fitments.

I’ve never heard of MXP but according to Evasive Motorsport’s blog their lug nuts are comparable to RAYS lug nuts and in some areas they feel that the MXP lugs might be better. For instance they’re open ended which gives them wider lug compatibility unlike the close ended RAYS lug nuts. I couldn’t personally say which lug nut is better but these MXP pieces certainly look on par with some of the other top end lug nuts out there.

If wheels are like shoes then lug nuts are like “phat” laces that add contrast and that touch of unique flavor. Here is a set that is made by TRUST Japan(Greddy’s parent company). This set is a short style with a tapered end made specifically for aftermarket wheels. The cool part: The TRUST company logo is etched on one of the faces and comes in a slick titanium gold finish.
