THOSE SPLIT-RIM FOUR-SPOKES
Sam’s wheels are a modern twist on the classic RS four-spoke, continuing the original RS2000 aesthetic but allowing for broader rubber and more space inside for bigger brakes. Made by Image Wheels, these are high-quality three-piece billet items which can be ordered with a convex, flat or concave profile – the flat ones give the most authentic look, particularly in smaller sizes (they can be built in anything from 5x12 inch to 14.5x17 inch), but in Sam’s sizes the concave finish makes more sense, given the huge amount of dish his 9x16 inch wheels are showing. Being premium items, these rims ain’t cheap — in this size, you’re looking at £396 per wheel; in an OEM 6x13 inch size they’re £231 apiece — but you do get what you pay for. And in Sam’s case, the huge girth really fills out the X-Pack arches nicely!
