I really can’t say I have seen the Racing Direction Quattro online or in person, but they sure do look unique as most 4 spoke JDM wheels do. Pictured above are the Racing Direction Quattro on an S13 Nissan Silvia running staggered sizes 16×7 +35 and 16×8 +38; such consevative sizing compared to what people run today.
