Hey peeps, I'm asking for some help with Work Wheels.. I was checking out the english site for the RSZ-R wheels, their light weight "racing" wheel:
and then I was also checking out the Japanese site, and the only one I could find on the main wheel index:
that looked remotely like it is the Nezart Spoke 2:
The reason I ask is because the Nezarts run just over $200, and that seemed insane for a wheel as light as the RSZ-R. Any help would be appreciated
O.T. what the hell car is this? just struck me as fitting a certain design mark aesthetic... *cough* scion *cough*

The silver car is a Suzuki Cappucino

You should PM Mr. Van Pham or call him @Peircey Toyota Scion 408-436-8890. He has great information on these wheels and also you can ask him about the 5-Zigen wheels that he has available with very low offsett!

Van suggested I look at the work wheels in the first place, but I'm just trying to figure out which are which before I come up with a selection.. so hence this little thread, anyone read japanese???

toufic: funny that you mentioned the Work RSZ-R, because I happen to be selling a set! :)
Unfortunately, you'll see that they are 5 lug, and won't fit on a Scion. But if you know anyone with a 5x114.3mm car that's looking for some bad ___, lightweight, forged wheels... :)
Anyway, you won't find the RSZ-Rs on work's web site or in their catalog anymore because they are an older model and are discontinued. The wheel that's probably the best replacement for the RSZ-R is the Meister S1-2 piece.
Oh yah, and Nezarts are definitely a cool wheel, especially when considering the price. But just an FYI about all JDM parts: the yen has increased in strength lately, raising the price of JDM parts. Really big companies like HKS and Greddy, etc. will probably not be as affected, and they can continue selling parts at their original prices in the US and afford to eat the slight damage due to the exchange rate (although their stuff is also marked up enough that they won't be hurt as badly as the small guy), but you might see some companies raising the prices of their JDM parts to reflect the recent change in the yen:dollar ratio. To make this tidbit of info relevant, Works are a little pricier to get right now...but it's not so bad; just a few % higher than before. But I am working to see if my friend can get Work Japan to cut us all a good deal regardless of the exchange rate.
Oh yah, and that little convertible car is actually a Daihatsu! It's like a cross between a TT convertible and a new beetle. Check it out here:
Oh yah 2, John, it's Phan with an N! >HAHAHA<

Sorry, my baddd.... for the mistake Van! I hope he still got the right person @Peircey Scion. Anyways, I hope that he still ends up dealing with you about the wheels!

I have my eyes on these, but with a black center piece instead of the gold:

Works recommend 16x7 +35 front and +25 in the back, guess you can't rotate em...

Call me weird... But, these are pretty cool wheels... I think...
