      Rado Fans,

      So you thought that NEUSPEED only cared about the MK5, MK6, Audi models B5 and up, and with their new line, NM Engineering for Mini Coopers, the new Minis, too, huh? Well, okay, so admittedly, we did, too. I mean, the famed West Coast VAG tuning legend teased us with R&D on much needed billet sway bar end links for the Corrado and MK3 VR6 cars a while back (even used us to gauge the interest on this very forum), then 86'd the project due to lack of enthusiasm from MK3 and Corrado owners. Well, at least they offered to sell us the prototype. I wonder if that will ever materialize....

      Like the great VAG tuners that came after them, APR and Forge Motorsport, we realize that nobody gives a hoot about cool stuff for anything older than a MK4 nowadays. Well, until now that is. Finally, a cool wheel for some of the 4x100 and 5x100 guys; the RSe05 Lightweight Wheels from NEUSPEED! The RSe05 Wheels are specifically for select vehicle applications (not universal like other manufacturers), which allows them to offer the wheels with an abundance of cool features.


      Features:

      - Hub Centric Bore
      - Perfect Offset and Width
      - Run-Flat Tire Compatible
      - OEM Spec Lug Bolt Nut Seat
      - OEM Center Cap Compatible
      - Weights Ranging from 15.5 to 17lbs
      - OEM Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor (TPMS) Compatible

      Applications:

      - Audi A1
      - Audi A3
      - Fiat 500
      - Corrado
      - VW MK3
      - VW MK4
      - VW MK5
      - VW MK6
      - VW Polo
      - Mini Cooper (Gen I)
      - Mini Cooper (Gen II)

      We'll be looking to stock these either first or second week of September and pricing will be determined at that time. They'll be for those wanting a 17" wheel, something NEUSPEED has not offered until now. Please let us know what you think about them. Our guess is that they will come in at around a ballpark figure of $974.95 to $1024.95 or so for the set of four (4) with free lower 48 state shipping. Colors options are as seen - silver, black and red.

      "Perfect" is very vague description.

      I was thinking the same thing.

      Nice to see someone make wheels that aren't just old designs rehashed.

      It's 2012. Suffice to say, not many wheel designs haven't been deemed as "played out" by somebody somewhere.

      Agreed..... you did ask for opinions But, the basic 5 star goes back to the beginnings of custom import wheels. Its just too basic IMO especially for the price range. Hey I'm a fan of Neuspeed products. I'm an old head that goes back when they were one of the only ones around producing h20 aftermarket goods. They do make quality stuff

      I'm not saying I still don't like some of the various 5 star types though. I am a customer and value the products your company sells as well As soon as I get back from vacation. I will be purchasing a rather large order

      We have two SLC's here (an all-motor and a VR6T) and plan on putting a set of these on one of them.

      Pics coming soon. Stay tuned.

      These wheels are a little reminiscent of the Corrado Speedline wheels, but in 17". Kinda.

Feel free to hit us up to place an order via the phone or email until we get these bad boys loaded up on our site. We appreciate the two orders thus far. Please post up your feedback on them when you get a chance. Thanks.

      I'm finding round wheels in general to be played out. I don't know why a company can't reinvent the wheel and come up with something more interesting than a circle.

      You mean whole...

      Pretty difficult to come up with a 5 spoke wheel design that hasn't been done without being too flashy. Personally I like that its basic and not overdone. At least they aren't just remaking older wheel designs like some companies like to do...

      I do wish they were available in 16's. Personally I think 16 x 8 would be ideal.
