The ADVAN Racing soul created to master their expertise
A convex and deeply dynamic design
Searching high and low, there are not many sports models that demand the true performance of wheels as much as the R35GT-R. A heavyweight body of up to 1.7 tons, and a boost up performance reaching over 600 ps. The acceleration force unfolded from it is truly intense.
The load on its feet is therefore immeasurable. Thus, it’s absolutely necessary to equip a wheel that can be trusted through its full width. The top tuners representing Japan can list many reasons for choosing ADVAN Racing, without a doubt.
As such, we highlight the “ADVAN Racing R6,” which they unveiled at SEMA Show 2018 and attracted a lot of attention at Tokyo Auto Salon 2019. This is the latest Yokohama wheel finished by die forging to achieve all of the sports wheels requirements, such as strength, rigidity, and lightness.
The true apex is its step rim that certainly accentuates depth. The curved spoke design notably emerges from the deep rim in an unwavering manner, accented by a side cut of the spoke featuring a large bore. This is surely an unprecedented and inspirational ADVAN creation.
The form of the spokes spreading in a concave shape is refreshing, while somehow nostalgic. Though the R6 spokes aren’t very long, they seem larger than their actual size–perhaps due to their excellent unity with the step rim. Hats off to ADVAN for creating quite the impact with a standard 6-spoke design.
The wheel’s model was born from a demand for unparalleled performance. For this reason, its curved spokes allow capacity for giant brake calipers. The deep rim is also essential for offsetting thicker tires. A product of their masterful expertise, indeed.
In addition, the Kansai Service GT-R photographed this time sports a wider front fender. Its wheel size is 11J x 20+5 in both the front and rear, which they combine with Advan A052 285/35. The color, as can be seen, is Machining & Racing Hyper Black.
The ADVAN Racing R6 is a gem suitable for adorning the feet of the R35GT-R, a flagship sports car that represents Japan.
