    New "old school" wheels from Motegi

    American Racing's Motegi division have finally offered something made for JNCs! :tu: :mrgreen:

    It's called the MR124, and comes in a 15x8 +6.





    May not be the awesomest thing ever, but at least it doesn't look like a replica of a true vintage JDM wheel. :P

    dont these wheel companies get it, we want staggered set ups , something where the lip of the wheel increases in size and not the positive offset. this doesnt only go for the nostalgics, newer cars look good like this too.

    If you want staggered, they also make a 15x7 +10?

    Although I'm not 100% sure if that's what you meant there... :P

    Think he means wheels where you can rest your cell phone on the lip in the front of the rim.

    I kind of like those rims. I may have to look into a set.

    Makes sense. :P

    I myself prefer the "bowl" lips to the "flat" lips. Reminiscent of the Sakura and the Hayashi Steet. 8)

    I agree negative offset is the way to go :tu: I think these wheels would look good on a 510 coupe tho

    i understand that the wheel companies try to play it safe and appeal to positive, medium, and negative offset cars, by making a product that looks good on all those cars. but we know wheels are the best visual enhancement made to a car and i want the wheels to fit perfect not just good. also my preference is that the lip increase in size (bowled or flat lip, like them both) when the wheel gets wider, not the back spacing.

    Another great inexpensive, wheel option for JNCers. lol

    Now, all they need is JWL and VIA, stamped along the spokes... and they'll really look JDM old school. :wink: :tu:
