This is a gorgeous wheel, and entirely functional in its design. The ring around the perimeter is for added strength and resistance to flex. Show up for a fast track day and the very fastest Mitsubishi EVOs are running this wheel for its combination of incredible strength and anti-flex technology.
The NTO3+M was originally developed for competition and used in the Japanese Super Endurance Racing Class 1 and is engineered with Enkei's Anti-Flex technology to support the highest G forces you can dish out. LOTS OF FENDER WORK OR FLARES TO INSTALL THESE!
