SSR Formula Mesh and Other Classic SSR JDM Wheels

JDM Wheels - SSR Formula Mesh and other classics
SSR Formula Mesh is one of the most popular JDM Wheels of all time. Produced in the 80’s The SSR Formula mesh is a simple 2 piece wheel, with a mesh face bolted with 20 bolts in to a welded barrel with a stepped lip. Speed Star Racing also made the SSR MK I, SSR MK II and SSR MK III wheels as pictured; thier classic JDM wheel line wich introduces the 3 piece wheel. Also pictured is the SSR Star Formula, a 6 spoke race inspired wheel. JDM Wheels – SSR Formula Mesh, SSR Star Formula, SSR MK I, SSR MK II, SSR MK III

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 MKI was the original Speed Star Racing wheel with a flat face and no spokes or holes. The SSR MKII has a classic 4 spoke sqaured spoke design. 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

Toyota Corolla AE86 on SSR MKII
A friend and I were having a conversation on the Toyota Corolla AE86′s and started looking for the best examples. The first 86 to come to mind was this one I saw on Club4AG. The owner did a full build on it, and surprisingly it is actually an SR5 model. The owner also has had myriad of wheels for it; SSR MKII, SSR MKIII, 2 sets of Volk Racing TE37, and Weds Sport MA86. I personally think the MKII’s give it that best old school look.
