    There were a number of Japanese wheel makers that were importing welded two-piece mesh style wheels. Could be Enkei, Riken, SSR, and others. Southern Ways is the actual manufacturer of Epsilon wheels. Epsilon was the sole US distibutor of SW. The company that distributed Epsilons also sold welded two piece wheels but they were mainly for FWD applications. Any SW wheels in the US came through the grey market through various JDM parts shop that popped up during the era.
