NEW for 2021, the popular Konig Hypergram in 16" size! For years the track guys running stiff coilovers and 17x9 for fast weekends at the track and autocross asked us to make a strong and light 16 inch wheel to soften their daily driving to work....and here it is at last! Great for any street user seeking better ride quality. Recommended tire size: 205/50/16
The Hypergram is an exceptionally light 12-spoke design that is motorsport inspired in its construction, appearance and its ability to clear many big brake cars and upgrades! Utilizing Flow Forming Technology allows the Hypergram to be lighter and stronger than competitors including a bigger load rating than competitors in this weight class.
Flow Formed Strong yet light, just 14.8 pounds in this size.
Brian's Comments: We got about 2 years of work into this fun 16 inch size for NC. Most 16 inch wheels don't fit NC because of rear suspension link, result was that to get LIGHT 16 inch wheels lots of folks ran old RX7 16x8 wheels that were 15 pounds and less but are so old and merely gravity cast that those old wheels tend to crack. So....finally a FLOW FORMED choice that is super light and yet super strong, with 690kg load rating! Great size for 200 treadwear 205/50/16. Tight lug pocket means we suggest our various tuner lug upgrades with these wheels, such as our McGard Spline Drive Lugs. Expect 205/50/16 will plug and play on any lowered NC, 225/45 will need just a hair more camber, 225/50 needs good camber and might need fender lips rolled depending on variables such as the tire choice, the heights, and the camber.

I ordered these wheels while on vacation in Florida (early October) and had them dropped at my tire guy's shop. (Gross Tire in Williamsport; they're great)
Mounted with hub centric rings and Roadster Sport forged alloy lugs, 19mm. What a difference! I'm still learning my new handling parameters.
The decreased offset from stock gives a 1.3" wider track, and the light weight and straighter sidewalls enhance the handling and braking even more. The lugs are so light, too. They did not use a gun to put them on, using the cross wrench instead and then torquing to spec.
I got these because I don't race and wanted to retain the relative comfort of taller sidewalls while enhancing performance. And I didn't want to buy another set of tires.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
