With everyone trying to get the fattest lip under their fenders, this FC Mazda RX7 is refreshing to look at with it’s nomal fitting
17″ SSR Formula Mesh. This 7 looks like it can be daily driven with no problems due to its civilized fitment.
Wheels are SSR Formula Mesh measuring 17×7 +32F and 17×8+32 Rear. Ichiba Spacers bring the wheels out a bit.
Exhaust gasses expelled through Racing Beat Y pipe and Mufflers.

Say what you want, but this car is hot! Due to it’s “Stance”, this car has caused some mixed heat on some internet forums. Obviously
this car is not daily driven, but it just looks right. Not only is the car built, but the owner also took his time and built the wheels.
“So I am sure most of you have seen these. I spent nearly a year buying parts/pieces/wheels to make the set you see here. They
are the ONLY set I have ever seen on a BMW with a 5×120 bolt pattern, let alone with stepped lips ”
– internet user “KarlSpackler”
Front wheel profile, note how close the front lip
is to the ground.
Rear wheel profile, thats almost 5 inches of lip…
I do agree with the owner, not only do you 17″ SSR Formula Mesh barrels, but you hardly see 9 or 10 inch wide Formula Mesh Barrels
as well. This car has the perfect blend of Euro and JDM.
SSR Formula Mesh – Stepped Lips
17×9 +10 ~ 3.5″ lip

I’m not sure if this car had a full feature anywhere, but if it does please let me know so I can add it here.
Import Tuner Magazine has provided this great article for all us Wheel Whores out there. Covering some of the hot JDM
wheels from the 80’s and 90’s. Can you believe that no one even used the term “JDM” back then?
If anyone knows which issue of Import Tuner this is from please let me know, it’s a must add to my library.
