The Honda crowd is undoubtedly unique. On one end of the spectrum you have the cruddy half-assed car builds, but on the other end - the one you want to see - are crazy baller builds with exquisite engine bays and wheels so rare you'll want to sell your left nut for. It's no surprise that you'll find both camps at the annual Eibach Honda meet held at Storm Stadium in Lake Elsinore, Calif. The saying "You can judge a person by their shoes" can also apply to a person's wheel choice. We found everything from old-school rims made before you were born to the more modern top-shelf wheels.
The RG-D wheel was designed to be as deep as possible. The spoke curves were made for ample caliper clearance.
We found this crazy N600 with a motorcycle motor rolling on rare Alley Cat wheels.
Probably the most recognized mesh wheel out there is the BBS RS.
Our good friend Mickey Andrade brings the heat with his rare Honda Civic SiR S on Hayashi Racing Ventura CD wheels with a center locking system.
To a normal person these might look like dartboard wheels, but the NR10R is the dream for every Mugen fan boy. The MF10 and the M7 are also extremely popular wheels.
Since the 1950s, Enkei has catered to racers. Fast forward to today and Enkei's wheel technology must pass Super GT's stringent standards. A few RPF1 and NT03 fans rolled up.
Back in '71, SSR released its first three-piece wheel, the MK1. Good luck trying to find other old school wheels such as the EX-C, EX-C Neo, or Super Mesh. You can actually still buy any wheel from the Speed Star MK series directly from SSR. At the show we saw some Takechi Project Racing Hart Spinner Fins, Super Spokes, and Sprint Hart CP, CPR, and CPF .
You can't go wrong with Volk Racing TE37s or CE28Ns. We also spotted some rare Volk Racing Emu Fin wheels as well as a set of Garcia Tune Speed Choppy's on Christopher Warren's '92 Civic hatch we featured in the '16 Honda issue.
Work Wheels is another Japanese company that started off in the 70s by the late Takeshi Tanaka. Some of their popular wheels include the Equip 01, 03, and the Meister lineup.
