SSR Professor SP1: School The Competition

As many car enthusiasts know, Speed Star Co. Ltd and Speed Star Sales Co. Ltd went bankrupt on January 27 of this year, leaving many prospective buyers out in the cold. It appears, however, that the reports of Tanabe Co., Ltd purchasing the business rights and assets of Speed Star Racing and Speed Star Wheel were true. I check for updates regarding the buyout almost religiously and to say that I was ecstatic when I saw the Speed Star Wheel link on the front page of the Tanabe Japan site today would be the understatement of the year!!!

I have a one-track-mind when it comes to certain things, and wheels for my Supra is one of those things. Just a few of the qualities the SSR Professor SP1s have that that make it the right wheel for me are:

  • - wide range of widths
  • - wide range of offsets
  • - simple five-spoke design
  • - stepped lip that provides a sense of substance

I look forward to Tanabe setting up US distribution and hopefully I will have some new shoes for my 'dawg after nearly five years of ownership.
