    Sweet! Love it. Some funky combos like red with a chrome lip would be nice.

    shame they don't make any good 4x100 fitments, but the TE37 will ALWAYS be a classic. it has a design that has really stood the test of time. looks good on a first gen RX7 just as much as a brand new RX8..

    My favorite wheel. Also disappointed with the lack of additional 4x100 bolt pattern sizes.

    I have never understood the wheel sizes they chose for this wheel.

    • 14 inch diameter shall be no wider than 6 inches.
      15 inch diameter shall be no wider than 7 inches.
      16 inch diameter shall be no narrower than 7 inches.
      17 inch diameter shall be no narrower than 7 1/2 inches.

      37 and 38 mm offset shall not be available in the widest widths.


    It is as if they designed the selection for kei cars (15 inch diameter and smaller) and JGTC race cars (16 inch diameter and larger). Small diameter wheels that are wide, and large diameter wheels that are narrow, simply do not exist.

    Did you look at the sizing chart? None of what you said appears to apply to this wheel. :?

    They only sell this wheel in a 15" diameter, any width from 7.5" to 10".

    Or were you talking about the regular TE37?

    The world of 4x100 really hasn't changed, because the "vintage" sizing only applies to 4x114.3. So, yes, I am talking about the regular one.

    Funny thing, my car that has 4x114.3 can't even use wheels wider than 6 inches, and my cars that use 4x100 would be worthless with a wheel narrower than 6 inches.

    Their wheel size availability seems to be based on the idea that it is bad to put small diameter really wide wheels on a little car. Just like the lack of 205-50-15 tire sizes, and a very apparent favoritism for 195-50-15 (Bridgestone Potenza RE01/RE11).
    They seem to have a very different tuning style using narrower tires, which makes it difficult to use a different tuning style with their narrower selection of wheel sizes.

    I'm sure it's simply just supply/demand. They don't feel like enough people want what you want to justify making them.

    There's always Diamond... :wink:
