The Stern Series of JDM Wheels is most Popularized by the Stern Face-II 5 Spoke Wheel. So popular, it was used on certain year Saleen Mustangs. The Stern Face-II is a muscular looking fat face 5 spoke wheel with exposed hardware. The Stern Face-I was pretty much the one peice version of the face-II.
