Type R + Type X = Type RX – 1996 JDM Honda Integra Type-R DC2 on SSR Type X

JDM Honda Integra Type R on SSR Type X

The Honda Integra Type-R (or Acura Integra Type R on this side of the pond) is argueably the best production FF car ever
produced. As far as I can recall in the mid 90’s, the SSR type X was marketed as the lightest weight wheels available,
starting a light weight wheel war for a while. This clean Championship White Honda Integra Type R brings those two
products together nicely. Some Super Rare Ohlins and HKS suspension bits enhance the handling charachteristics as
well as clean up the stance of this fine automobile.

BMW E30 M3 + SSR Formula Mesh = FPURISTS

SSR Formula Mesh BMW E30 M3
BMW E30 M3 ON SSR Formula Mesh

Iconic car… Check
Iconic Wheels… Check
Rare Evo parts.. Check
Fat Lips… Check

Say what you want, but this car is hot! Due to it’s “Stance”, this car has caused some mixed heat on some internet forums. Obviously
this car is not daily driven, but it just looks right. Not only is the car built, but the owner also took his time and built the wheels.

“So I am sure most of you have seen these. I spent nearly a year buying parts/pieces/wheels to make the set you see here. They
are the ONLY set I have ever seen on a BMW with a 5×120 bolt pattern, let alone with stepped lips ”
– internet user “KarlSpackler”

SSR Formula Mesh BMW E30 M3

Front wheel profile, note how close the front lip
is to the ground.

SSR Formula Mesh BMW E30 M3

Rear wheel profile, thats almost 5 inches of lip…
Wow!

I do agree with the owner, not only do you 17″ SSR Formula Mesh barrels, but you hardly see 9 or 10 inch wide Formula Mesh Barrels
as well.  This car has the perfect blend of Euro and JDM.

Wheel Specs:
SSR Formula Mesh – Stepped Lips
17×9 +10 ~ 3.5″ lip
17×10 +0 ~ 4.75″ lip
5×120
72.56 center bore
White powdercoated faces
Black Anodized Hardware

Tires Specs:
215/35 Falken 452s front
225/35 Yoko S.Drives rear

 

I’m not sure if this car had a full feature anywhere, but if it does please let me know so I can add it here.

JDM Truck – Modtaco's Toyota Tacoma on Work Meister S1

I have a huge fetish for minitrucks on fresh JDM wheels. This supreme 2001 Toyota Tacoma fills that fetish for me and belongs
to internet user Modtaco. Unique to this truck are the 4″ flares on the rear filled with some really deep 11.5″ wide Work Meisters,
and a custom bag setup that currently pancakes the rear but also brings don the front nicely. The front features 4wd fenders
that house 10″ wide Meisters.  The truck is still a work in progress, but it looks really hot as is. – JDM Truck: Toyota Tacoma on Work Meister S1

JDM Truck: Toyota Tacoma on Work Meister S1

“Here's mine. It's a 2001 tacoma with 18×10 & 18×11.5 WORK Meister wheels, custom disk brakes, widebodied,
fully built engine with standalone management and a GT35R turbo, 3″ side exit exhaust, JDM ITR seats…”
– modtaco


Wide stance on the front


While Taco Supreme looks really aggressive, it also packs a punch with a GT35R pushing the 325hp out of the stock 2.4.


Readers Rides section of Minitruckin Magazine September, 2009. The following quote is really impressive to me:

“…the 18×9 and 18×11 Work Wheels that evan brought back from Japan as checked luggage.”
– Ben Da Pirate – Minitruckin Magazine


Check out the rear flare, the old rims didnt fill.

“The wheels are 18″ WORK XSA-01T. They are 3 piece and are 9″ wide in front with 245/45/18 rubber and 10″ wide in the rear with 275/40/18.”

Rare Parts: Millenium… oops Watanabe Falcon Steering Wheel

Watanabe Falcon Steering Wheel

Watanabe parts are already hard to get… Getting a Watanabe Falcon steering wheel is a lot harder. Try finding somone selling one right now, chances are slim. The wheel comes in two versions; 3 spoke and 4 spoke. One is a Falcon Type I and the other is Falcon Type II, I really don’t know which one is which. The steering wheel features a unique horn with the Watanabe Falcon logo. This is a piece I wish I could add to my collection.

Rare Parts: TRD and Toda 4AG Tuning Goodies

TRD Multi ECU:

Real TRD parts are hard to come by, and I’ve never seen this part before; the TRD Multi
ECU Controller. This unit comes with a 4 position controller unit so you can tune on the fly! Its
for early 4AG engines, so most likely will fit: AE86, AE92 and AW11. May fit others as well.
