Super rare set of custom SSR Jilba Racing wheels
I originally bought them (newly finished and never used) from JPNGarage who had them rebuilt by Araya wheels in California about 8 months ago with new heat treated barrels, bolts, polish and paint.
I used them on the road for a total of about 200 miles. Tires are in like new condition except for a slight goudge around the passenger rear tire from my fender rubbing on it. Tire is still in very good condition otherwise.

Since this was only one of several trips out to the east coast for events, we were already prepared to face the sun as it came up. This time though, the drive was not all that blinding. There was a haze throughout the morning drive which helped keep the glaring sunlight at bay.
Later on, the haze burned off to make for great travel weather.
Protection is key.
If you’ve ever seen Pat rolling in his Matrix, you’d think his wheels were broken. The camber on this Matrix is ridiculous!
One of our many stops. A few of curious travelers stop to ask questions. We get a lot of that on the road.
Gene’s 370z is chilling in the shade.
Ray’s special tape job became the souvenir of the trip, you’ll see more of this later.
Parked and waiting
Mike’s GC8 is looking quite at home on the road.
Getting to see the mountains and hills is always nice after traveling the flat lands of Indiana.
Even got to see a couple of these slammed pickups (this is one)
Here’s Corey and his Genesis Coupe, his wheels always attract attention.
And another stop, you get the picture….
We finally arrived and the hotel and met up with our extended family.
A little later, we chilled at the carwarsh. This is Willy’s (Nostalgic Grains) 68 Fairlady, it’s perfect.
Tim’s GRB and Mike’s GC8 sitting pretty, waiting for a wash.
Styles showing his appreciation for Lauren’s G35.

The rest of the dirty pics…..

Stay tuned for Part 2, it starts to get interesting
We’ve seen these before, but I like this site better than most of the others.
Wheels are in order by Manufacturer/Model so it’s not difficult to find one, if know the name but you’re not sure what it looks like.
Click on a wheel pic and the info given in this format:
MANUFACTURER: August Japan

CONFIRMED PRODUCTION YEARS: 1985
BOLT PATTERNS: 4X114.3

Unwelded two piece wheels.
Some wheels have different disk types, for brake clearance. Not all wheels have good brake clearance, so they need thicker back pads to add space. This of course changes the offset.
So for instance, you may notice on Work Wheels USA’s website that they have certain wheels that have similar specs but the lip sizing is different. This is due to the change in back pad thickness. One easy way to see the difference in thickness would be to compare the same diameter, width, and lip size.
You’ll notice that 19×10.5 +45 (A-disk or regular), 19×10.5 +55 (O-disk or low-disk), and 19×10.5 +28 (R-disk or high-disk) all have 72mm lips.
The back pad has 10mm more metal shaved off for the O-disk version compared to the A-disk version, and the R-disk has 17mm material added in comparison to the A-disk version.
If you have the clearance, O-disk allows you to simply run bigger lip sizes, by compensating for the difference in backpad thickness (bigger lip = smaller inner barrel for the same width wheels).
