Default New Wheel from TR Motorsports

I was looking through my magazines and saw Tire Rack has a new wheel.

It's called the C2. It looks like the Volk TE-37.

Anyone have any information on this? I tried to find what sizes they have but couldn't find them.

It would be nice to have a good array of sizes.

Every good wheel I find, the largest seems to be 17x7" or 18x7.5

maybe your definition of 'good' is flawed

Something wrong with TRMotorsports wheels? AFAIK they're made by Enkie. MY MT1's have held up great at the track.

No, not really.

Most of the new line ups from Enkei are small.

Tire Rack does NOT support the whole 'huge wheels are k00' thing and wont likely offer anything that fits the 'koo herrafrush' brainwash crowd

i was upset that they disco'd the 17x8.5's by enkei that they had as that was a great deal on the perfect size to run a 245/40

You give him **** for saying that he wants something bigger than a 17x7", and then go on to say you're disappointed they don't have 17x8.5"s anymore. Are you actually reading his posts, or just immediately jumping on your high horse about what you think other people should put on their cars?

Oh and I respected you once.

You actually think I am part of the hella flush crowd?

Does this look hella flush to you?:


I want wider! I should've made that more clear. And I wasn't mad at you, I was mad most Enkei wheels are not very wide. Just a 17x8 or 17x8.5 inch wheel so once I get my swap done I have more tire for more traction.

Or just stick with my 17x7 wheels and just deal with it and not worried about trying to be 'k00.'

I regret not picking up a set of the 17x8.5 tr wheels when they went on sale at the end.

If those were still available in 5-100 I would buy a set, but there is just not enough love for us original 2004 STi guys.

Didn't they used to have a few more options in the TR motorsports line? I was thinking about getting some and all they have is 18".

Thanks, Luke.

I wish there was a 5x100; it would open up your sales by a lot.
