Default Rays Put New Face on Volk TE37 - TE37 Generation 2









Quote:
Rays venerable Volk TE37, the premier racing wheel used in everything from rally to SuperGT from tough Skyline GT-Rs to street Honda Vitz, is getting a facelift in 2008 with the release of the TE37 G2 series of wheels. Due out shortly from Rays Volk these forged aluminium monoblock construction wheels will be available in a range of colours and sizes up to 20″.

The wheels made their international public debut on the Mineís Nissan GT-R at SEMA recently where these photos were taken but word has been getting around under covers for a while now.

We have seen a TE37 like wheel on the GT-R before in the guise of the Nismo Clubsport, Tokachi Endurance GT-R and Nissan Spec-V wheel but official nomenclature had not been confirmed and the look left a lot to desire in some critics eyes. These wheels suit the new GT-Rís offset a lot more but is it blasphemy to use the iconic TE37 name on this newcomer?

They remind me of the Prodrive GC05 but less one spoke.

I think it looks pretty good. The old TE37 is classic, but we need some new wheel designs out on the market!

That looks good. Like a SSR Comp but curvier in all the right ways.

the original TE37's look timeless, these new ones don't even compare

i'm sure that they're awesome wheels, but as far as looks go, old skool TE37's FTW!!!

^^^Agreed, its looks more like a Gram Light 57max then a TE37 and it looks like you loose concavity because the spokes bow out before the taper into the hub. Do they weight the same?

Yuck...what a boring design.

Out of curiosity - is there any fitment info available yet? Maybe they have potential on a different car.

Not a Fan. The original TE37 is a timeless design that will never get old.
