5Zigen Keiichi by SSR Wheels – JDM Wheels

5Zigen Keiichi by SSR Wheels - JDM Wheels
The 5Zigen Keiichi are JDM Wheels made by SSR Wheels but also with the drift king himself Keiichi Tsuchiya. The 5Zigen Keiichi features 3 piece construction with reverse mounted style. The faces feature a 10 hole design with covered lug nuts. The center cap parts look to have some cool detail on them which is part of what makes older ssr wheels cool; a bunch of random wording and engrish. The picture depicts the 5Zigen Keiichi mounted on a NA series Mazda Miata.

 

The Engrish from the Ad reads:

The Square of Evolution
Keiichi
3Peace Full Reverse
Heated Version Whell
with Keiichi Tsuchiya
Made by SPEED STAR CO., LTD.

SSR MKII on Nissan Skyline GT-R Kenmeri KGC110
The SSR MKII are Old School JDM Wheels from the 70’s, which makes it a good match for this 1975 Nissan Skyline GT-R Kenmeri KGC110. The SSR MKII on this Kenmeri Skyline are a whopping 9 inches wide on the front, and 11 inches rear. – SSR MKII on Nissan Skyline GT-R Kenmeri KGC110

Side profile view of the KGC110 Nissan Skyline, this car has really beautiful lines; the windshiled and roofline reminds me of an old fighter plane canopy. – SSR MKII on Nissan Skyline GT-R Kenmeri KGC110

Watanabe Wheels are one of the older manufacturer of JDM Wheels in Japan. Most notable for their banana spoke type wheels, they also made the Watanabe Falcon Turbo Wheels back in the early 80’s as this ad was circa 1981. Also featured is the Falcon Z Spoiler on the S130 Nissan 280zx Turbo. The sizing of the Watanabe falcon Turbo Wheels are 14×8 front & 14×8.5 rear which is still decent over 30 years later!

EOS Division by SSR Wheels – JDM Wheels

EOS Division by SSR Wheels - JDM Wheels
The EOS Division are 6 spoke JDM Wheels made by Speedstar Racing. The EOS feature 2 piece construction with exposed lug nuts. Sizing on the EOS varied from 16×7 +49 all the way to a wide 17×9.5 +43, however I suspect the 17×9 +19 might have a nicer look. Pictured are the EOS Division on a R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R. Also featured are the 5 spoke “hammer” style EOS-D on a Nissan Gloria.

Enkei RSIII 3 Spoke Wheels – JDM Wheels

Enkei RSIII 3 Spoke Wheels - JDM Wheels
The Enkei RSIII are 3 Spoke JDM Wheels from Enkei Wheels. The thing about 3 spoke wheels is the look either really obscure, or they look really awesome. The Enkei RSIII has got to be one of the best looking 3 spoke wheels in my opinion. The RSIII features 2 piece construction with multi hole exposed lug nuts which would probably make for quick wheel changes at the track. I also think they look like the 3 spoke cousin to the Sparco NT as they are both manufactured by enkei and feature the multi lug centers. Pictured above are the Enkei RSIII mounted on a Toyota MR2 Turbo SW20 with 17×7 +38 front and 17×9 +38 rear.
