Super Xiphos by Dunlop – JDM Wheels

Super Xiphos by Dunlop - JDM Wheels
The Dunlop Super Xiphos are JDM Wheels that really were not as popular as many others, but definitely had a really cool look to them. The Dunlop Super Xiphos are 3 piece wheels which feature a classic 5 spoke star design with exposed bolts on mounted on top of the lip.  Rounded edges of the spoke give the Super Xiphos a unique look from other popular 5 spoke wheels of the time. Pictured in the ad are the Super Xiphos mounted to a Nissan Fairlady Z 300ZX Z32 series.

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

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.

SSR GPO & SSR Alcyber by Speed Star Racing – JDM Wheels

JDM Wheels - SSR GPO & SSR Alcyber
JDM Wheels – SSR GPO & SSR Alcyber by Speed Star Racing. If you were an old school JDM Wheel Whore in the mid-late 90’s you have to know everyone wanted two wheels, the SSR GPO and the Racing Hart Type-C; here is a rare wheel scan of the SSR GP-O and SSR Alcyber. Some people have referred them as SSR GP Omega due to the greek symbol, but that is actually a Theta symbol to make it the SSR GP Theta. The SSR GP-O is a two piece mesh wheel with a faux centerlock design really being the center cap; a very popular design at the time. The SSR Alcyber is the 5 spoke brother to the SSR GPO also with the faux centerlock center cap. Both wheels state sizing from 16×7 to 18×9.5, but I have seen 16×6.5 and 18×10 from the Speed Star Racing factory. Now does anyone else see similarities in the SSR wheels GPO and the Racing Hart Type C; or the SSR wheels Alcyber and Racing Hart Tracer? Well just about every JDM wheel manufacturer had a mesh and 5 spoke design at this time.
