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.

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
