I've mentioned it before; but along with my fascination with 80s Japanese cars, is an equal interest in 80's Japanese wheels - and SSR's in particular.
Its the quality, detailing, and unique designs that set them apart for me; and in the decade following from ~1985, nothing else came close.
Among the one or two dozen different designs made during that time, none got any wilder than these..
Produced for some time around 86/87, yet far from thick on the ground. These particular wheels have managed to go 26 years without ever being fitted to a car - proof at the very least that the styling was a little bit much for most...!
They're a 3piece (welded barrel/lip) wheel, with a cast centre, and SSR's Electron Lock system.
But some detail shots of my favourite aspect of these wheels:
Thats it for photos of the McLaren's anyway - I'm sure that's enough!
I have no real intention to fit these to anything, and rightly so.. as I have no desire to ever have to clean them!
