Every year, the aftermarket industry see new and innovative products roll through, some more significant than others of course. But innovation and technological advancements is always progressing as the years go by. One of the products that I keep a close eye on every year is most definitely the almighty, wheel. These days with so many fakes, knockoffs, and inferior products coming out each year, it’s hard to keep up with what’s good and what’s not. One thing’s for sure though, innovators are getting ahead of the game with details that reflect craftsmanship and quality (i.e. Rays Engineering’s integrated etch machining on many of its wheels).
With that said, here are my top wheel choices for 2015!

1. Volk Racing TE37 Ultra Track Edition
It’s pretty crazy to think that the TE37 have been around for nearly 20 years, but yet it remains as relevant as ever. This latest varition, the TE37 Ultra Track Edition takes the strength and light-weight game even further.
2. Enkei Revolution GTC01RR
Following the success of the RS05RR, Enkei came through with another product for their Revolution lineup with the GTC01RR.
3. Advan Racing RZII
Following the footsteps of Rays Engineering, Yokohama have also been refining many of its already established wheels with new and improved variations. Their newest product, the RZII.
4. Work Emotion T7R
Another venerable Japanese wheel manufacturer is Work Wheels, and they’ve been churning out some sick models to add to their Emotion line of racing wheels. Personally, the T7R is among my favorite.
5. WedsSport SA72R
WedsSport is another wheel company that’s been making some fine products throughout the years. Their iconic Black Blue Machine finish is definitely one of my favorite of any wheel out there.
6. Bridgestone Potenza RW006
This is one of the original designed wheels out for 2015. It took some getting use to with the asymmetric spokes, but over time it grew on me and now I’m actually liking it!
7. Gram Lights 57 Valkryie
Here’s another offering from Rays Engineering through their Gram Lights line, the 57 Valkryie. I’m loving the semi-mesh design with a host of intricate details.
8. SSR Formula MK-III Neo
Here comes SSR Wheels holding it down for the old school guys with the revamped Formula MK-III Neo. This also gives the new car guys a chance for old school flavor with its 19 inch sizing.
9. SSR Professor TF1
The TF1 is a brand new offering from SSR which goes with their line of Professor wheels.
10. Prodrive GC-0100
Rounding out the top ten is Prodrives newest offering, the GC-0100. I love the machining and updated look of this wheel compare to their older offerings.
Thanks for checking this post out guys! Again, this is just my personal opinion but the list might change further down the year which could include American offerings…
