SSR MK-IIIS & SSR MK-II R - JDM Wheels

The SSR MK-IIIS & SSR MK-II R from Speed Star Racing were JDM Wheels based on older wheels from SSR. The SSR MK-IIIS is a design based off the olderSSR MKIII with its bigger spokes and alternating smaller 4 spokes. The updated version of the SSR MKIIIS has a full face on a reverse lip as opposed to the older small face on stepped lip. The SSR MK3 are pictured on a Honda Civic EG Series. The SSR MK-IIR has four rounded spokes also in a reverse lip, as opposed to the older SSR MKII which has four spokes but squared matched with a step lip. The SSR MK2R pictures are on a Nissan Skyline R32. Interestingly, I wonder if The SSR MKI had a modernized Version.

I always wondered about the SSR Formula Mesh ith the rounded center portion, and it seems it was the design for Speed Star Racing produced for 16″ models; the smaller sizes get the regular Star shaped center sections. Later all SSR Formula Mesh models got the Star shaped centers up to 18inches. I personally think the 5 lug star centers look the best.

The SSR MKIII has a design similar to the MKII, but with smaller spokes between the bigger 4. The SSR Star Formula had a pointh 6 spoke design ith polished front face and painted accents.  JDM Wheels – SSR Formula Mesh, SSR Star Formula, SSR MK I, SSR MK II, SSR MK III
