The Rarest Yokohamas Of All
How many of you guys know that Yokohama also makes alloy wheels? In very limited quantities, and only for Japanese cars, in Japan. These wheels are advertised in most JDM magazines, and command a huge premium in the West. A 17" wheel sells for around 450 USD, or 22.5k, and that's per wheel!
This is probably the only set in India. The finish has to be seen to be believed, and they are very very light.

Really nice looking alloys. From the picture the finish looks great, I am sure in metal the finish would be much better.
I for one, did not know that Yokohama was into Alloys as well.

Wow.. Whats so special? The name?
By how much will these alloys reduce the 0-100 run in seconds over other wheels?

More of a branding exercise for either Yokohama or Advan? I'm pretty sure Yokohama doesn't build these inhouse. More like a branded outsourced effort? Or do they?
Please put up pics once installed on whichever car!
