As the name implies, the Washialumi Asteriod Spoke Mesh have a overall star pattern design, but the spokes have a mesh pattern, hence the spoke mesh designation. Pictured are the Asteriod Spoke Mesh on a late 80’s Honda Accord Coupe, and they look great on there. Asteriod – New Design Shapely Form.

SSR EX-C NEO Created by Speed Star – JDM Wheels

The SSR EX-C NEO were one of the most sought after JDM Wheels to hit stateside in the JDM Wheel craze of the late 80’s and early 90’s. At the time, the SSR EX-C NEO were more popular than the SSR EX-C Fin and SSR EX-C Mesh, but right after the Racing Hart Super Fin which were also made by SSR. What all of the named wheels had in common was the SSR signature 2 piece construction with a face bolted on to a welded barrel fastened by 20 bolts; and also the theft deterrent Electron key system which requires a magnetic key to unlock the center caps. Unlike the SSR EX-C Fin and Mesh siblings, the SSR EX-C Neo had an additional coin on top of the main fitting which on the NEO’s which had a circular rubber grip as opposed to the hex style nut. Finding a set of SSR NEO’s isn’t impossible, but I will consider them to be one of the top JDM Wheels of all time.

MUGEN CR-X PRO. on FORTRAN ASSO - JDM Wheels Honda CR-X
The MUGEN CR-X PRO Honda CR-X is a great looking interpretation from the guys at MUGEN POWER. The MUGEN CR-X PRO had a full body kit including flared fenders which have the tiny CR-X a muscular look. The wheels predate Mugen branded wheels, but I believe are FORTRAN ASSO JDM Wheels which make sense since Mugen used FORTRAN on the Mugen MR-5.

This set of Hayashi Command look to have been polished. A neat feature of the Command are the how the wheel register is painted black which gives the face the illusion of floating spokes; if that makes sense.
