In 1971 SSR released the first 3 piece wheel, the MK1. Each SSR wheel is designed to withstand JWL testing before they are used on the street or track. JWL certification by the Japanese government involves testing impact strength and endurance strength. Additionally in 1981, a 3rd party statutory board the VIA (Vehicle Inspection Association) was created to verify JWL testing. Both the JWL and VIA logo are embossed into each and every SSR wheel representing SSR's dedication to quality control.
The newest line from SSR is their GTV Flowform series. Each wheel in the GTV Flowform series of wheels embodies this tradition for high quality, lightweight and strength.
Weight: 21.6 lbs
Bolt Pattern: 5x114.3 / 5x100
Offset: 22 / 40 / 45

The GTV series wheels are new entry level one-piece monoblock wheels aimed at the budget enthusiast looking to get SSR quality wheels at the right price. The flow forming technology allows for a sturdy wheel using less material while retaining high strength properties like all other SSR brand wheels.
I had bought these wheels (SSR GTV02) a few weeks back from Jane here at Furious Customs. Let me start off this review by saying how great the people over here are, Jane answered all of the hundreds of questions I had asked about everything. Free shipping on wheels is unheard of and they managed to do it, and they shipped them out within 24 hours. I searched for a long time for wheels and checked multiple websites, retailers, etc. and furious customs was by FAR the cheapest. Beat everyone's price by a long shot. Jane replied to all of my emails very quickly and was very helpful through my entire purchase and even AFTER my purchase. I also received my wheels within a week too. Now, about the SSR GTV02's. Excellent build quality, tough, hit many potholes, speedbumps, you name it all relatively hard, no bending or anything. The finish is matte black on mine, holds up exceptionally from all the dirt and debri on my road and where I live. No chipping or scratching and figment is perfect with no rubbing (18x9.5 +40 on a 2012 WRX Hatchback). I would definitely buy these again and especially from Furious Customs. Chris

SSR Wheels was founded in 1971 in Japan and continues to design and manufacture the highest quality wheels for performance and show vehicles. In order to deliver quality and reassurance, SSR's unique quality control of production surpasses JWL standards. SSR takes a different stance when supplying wheels to the race circuit. The race spec wheels are manufactured in the same essence as the commercialized wheels. This gives SSR direct feedback from the race circuit to further enhance the technology of the wheels. Time spent at the track and involvement with an array of motorsports has led to the technological developments that are embedded in every SSR wheel. SSR continues its involvement in motorsports with numerous victories in JGTC, Time Attack, Formula D, and D1GP.
