Racing Hart Type C2 / Racing Hart Type C5 – JDM Wheels

Racing Hart Type C2 Racing Hart Type C5 - JDM Wheels
The Racing Hart C2 and Racing Hart C5 were 2 big JDM wheel releases in the late 90’s. The Racing Hart Type C2 replaced the Original Racing Hart  Type C, the main differences were machined face as opposed to the original silver; and different center cap system with a polished center coin as opposed to original carbon fiber. The Racing Hart Type C5 sort of replaced the Racing Hart Type C Tracer with its 5 spoke design. Main differences were fatter spokes and also the different center caps as with the C2. I can personally remember when these wheels were released in the US, it was pretty big news in the scene, new japanese wheels don’t seem to have the same reactions these days. Racing Hart wheels are produced by Takechi Project in Japan.Pictured in the ad are the Racing Hart C5 on a JDM Toyota Altezza. – Racing Hart Type C2 Racing Hart Type C5 – JDM Wheels

The Racing Beat RB-02 feature a 3 piece construction with a 6 spoke face featuring a faux center lock, hidden lug nut design. – Racing Beat RB-02 JDM Wheels

The Racing Beat RB-02 are mainly designed for Mazda Miata 4×100, and Mazda RX7 5×114 fitments. Sizing included 15×6.0~15×7, 16×6.5~16×9.0 and 17×7.0~17×10 inch fitments. I’m sure 17×10.0 would look killer on the rear of an RX7. – Racing Beat RB-02 JDM Wheels

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.
