Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Sportback - SSR Type-F - Rolling Hard

New Kicks For Our Ralliart Sportback

As any tuner can tell you, a good wheel set is the quintessential modification, capable of either making or breaking a build. With this in mind we made sure we didn't slouch on our wheel selection and decided to go with one of the best known, oldest and highest quality brands in our market: SSR.

The SSR Type-F is a relatively new wheel and is constructed by their patented SSF (semi-solid forged) process which is essentially a specially produced squeeze manufacturing. This provides a very strong and lightweight wheel, approaching the traits of an upper echelon forged monoblock, for much less money.

Our new rollers look great in a nice gold metallic finish that isn't quite flat but definitely doesn't have the cheesy high-luster clear look either. We didn't want to run something so extreme that we would have to do fender mods to get the wheels on the car so we stayed a little on the conservative side with modest sizing of 19X8.5" with +42 offset all around.

To keep the car planted we chose Toyo T1R tires in 245/35ZR19 sizing for our sportback. These tires will provide plenty of grip and tread wear and make an excellent daily tire with potential for track time further down the line. We're definitely excited to get our wheel and tire package on the car and begin the transformation. Stay tuned as we take our Ralliart from super stock to Super Street.
