For members looking for a Group Buy for the CE28 Super Club Racer II Black Edition:




Ladies and Gents, I hope everyone are doing well and healthy (as well as your love ones). I am posting this not for any gains or other motives other than trying to help the community.

I have been trying to find options for wheels for the RS, and for most of us know the lug pattern does narrow down our options.

After December 1st 2020, Volk Racing had discontinued the RAYS TE37 SAGA. They have revised it to the TE37 SAGA S-Plus (excerpt from RAYS site):

The dramatic improvement in horse power, the change in weight distribution and traction due to all wheel drive, and the evolution of high grip tires that accept those factors.

Those things are remarkable, and VOLK RACING has judged these factors cannot overlook these vehicle evolutions.

From January 2021, RAYS will release the minor updated model the “SAGA S-PLUS”, which has reviewed each part and details to ensure a more safety margin.

However, there is no change in the frontal design, and the minor changes will be reflected on the back side of the spoke shape.

The gained weight depending on size will increase by approximately 100 to 120g.


This is a minor update to achieve a higher safety and security standard for higher rigidity and improved strength.

Here's the Specs:

353217


353216



The size is 18x9 with an offset of +38 with the lug/bolt pattern of 5x108.
Weight is under 18 lbs.

  • It includes valve stems.
  • Diamond Dark Gunmetal (MM) is $3,200 USD shipped **
  • Bronze (Almite) (BR) is $3,300 USD shipped**
  • Other colors are Hyper Blue(HL), Hyper Red(HR), Racing Green(IG) and costs extra
  • center caps are available for $206 a set.
** (depending on your location/STATE, SALES TAX might be applicable)
GROUP BUY RULES:

  • Minimum of 5 buyers to get one set (4 wheels) .
  • ALL of the wheels MUST BE THE SAME COLOR; So if someone want to get it in Bronze, 5 buyers of Bronze is needed (total of 20 wheels). If someone wants the Diamond Dark Gunmetal, 5 buyers of DDG is needed to meet the requirement. So on and so forth.
  • 50% down payment per buyer is required. NO CANCELLATIONS (even if you no longer have your car)
  • ALL PAYMENT MUST BE ACCEPTED FROM ALL BUYERS BEFORE PRODUCTION CAN START
I'll list down the colors and the minimum slots:



  • Hyper Blue(HL)





  • Hyper Red(HR)





  • Racing Green(IG)




Once one of the colors meet the minimum number I will DM the members and I reach out to Vivid to give them a heads up.

This is a couple of hundred dollars cheaper (depending on the color you want) than the original group buy of the TE37 in the past.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck to everyone.

If I didn't already have two sets of TE37s I'd be all over this! Then again... Wouldn't mind having a 3rd set... Hmm... These or an engagement ring for the wifey? 🤔🤔🤔 Decisions, decisions...🤣🤣🤣

Ring or rims?

That's a tough one.

Chateau Bow-wow?

$3985 shipped to Canada + duties and customs? Is it drop ship to vivid then to us? Or direct from Japan to us?
If it's like the last two group buys they did, it gets shipped to them first in Arizona. Then, they ship them out to the buyers.

Can I buy 1 for a spare? Ha!

as long as it meets the minimum, yes, you can order a spare.

So 5 wheels for you?

What color? 😁

You can un-mount the tires from the forge and get it remounted on a set of one of these babies.

Discount Tires did not charge me for doing it in the past.

These are 18's, forged are 19's. Tire shops will typically charge 15$ per corner to mount tires, at least in my area.

Completely forgot about the OE forge are 19s.

Yep, most tire shops charges for mounting, I guess I am fortunate enough that the 3 Discount Tires close to my house does not charge me for mounting.

@crepr12 can just get new tires for these.

LOL.

Ok, I will admit a massive lack of knowledge about these wheels. I have known for many years that these were the holy grail for most of the Japanese car guys but is there any real reason they are so much? Weight? Strength? Pure marketing? They are sexy but for nearly double my RPF1s (18x9 +35)...makes me wonder...

I got the Enkei NT03+M in 18x9.5. As soon as I get them, I'll be getting them powder coated... probably some gun metal type color. I prefer less spokes though so I really like the look of these 6-spoke Rays!
