Racing is where all of the best R&D happens. Engineers obsess over every detail looking for the slightest advantage to shave fractions of a second off of lap times. What Enkei learns on the world's premier circuits is eventually implemented into mainstream products and made available to the weekend racer. That s how the new Enkei GTC02 was born. Based on the RA series wheels used in the Super GT racing series, the GTC02 pulls from the same bag of tricks as the RA series to give weekend racers the competitive edge they need to win. Utilizing a 6 split-spoke design that disperses stresses efficiently allows Enkei to keep the spokes as thin as possible and make cuts in them on the fronts and sides to shave weight even further.
Made with Enkei MAT technology, the GTC02 is much stronger than regular cast wheels. High quality, super strong design.
Note that if you use stock lugs on this wheel you WILL SCRATCH IT UP badly because of the narrow and deep socket pockets on this design. Therefore, we STRONGLY recommend any of our lower profile lug nuts we offer.
Center caps and racing valve stems included with this Enkei Wheel! Hubcentric rings are optional (takes size 75/54 for ND AND Fiat 124).

Enkei developed a new manufacturing process to produce the next aluminum wheel generation. The Most Advanced Technology (M.A.T) combines one-piece cast wheel technology with a rim forming technology called spinning process. Using this new technology of casting and rim forming by M.A.T process, is critical to improve drastically the material property and strength of the wheels. Rim-Rolled technology shapes the rim to improve material elongation without sacrificing the wheels hardness.
All Enkei wheels are engineered to pass rigorous testing. In fact, Enkei established its own test standard called Spec-E, which is tougher than JWL requirements. Enkei s Spec-E test setting requires a higher drop point in the impact test and 20% more cycles for the rotary bending fatigue and dynamic radial fatigue tests than JWL standards.The Spec-E represents Enkei confidence in its technology and quality of Enkei wheels.
Replaced the stock 17x7 wheels with the Enkei GTC02 17x8 wheels and Conti Extreme Contact 215-45-17 rubber. The extra 1' width makes a big difference in both handling and ride quality, and with the 215 width the tire contact patch grow from 7.5" to 8.5" wide. This combo fills out the wheel well perfectly with almost all of the added width to the outside, and absolutely no rubbing or body interference.
Really nice wheels that are definitely worth the price.
