Is there an option for 15in rally wheels that don't have the spokes poking proud of the wheels like the Fullrace TR? The spokes make it a little difficult to mount tires since the head of the tire machine hits the spokes. Is there an option with a little more of a drop-center as well? We have some old Arcasting Z.AR RALLY 15's that are WAY easier to mount tires on and have adequate caliper clearance on the Merkur, FYI.

Hi Robert, I understand your issue with the TR. It was specifically designed to work with modern FWD cars that require very high offset wheels, hence the spoke shape. Obviously it can accommodate lower offsets too, as with your car. It is our only 15x6 gravel wheel these days but our Fullrace T Acropolis has spokes that stick out quite a bit less though they are still somewhat proud. It is 15x6.5 however.

Every few months we place a stock order with our European factory which gives you the opportunity to order some custom specification wheels without having to pay the usual drop ship freight charges. Instead, these will be shipped UPS ground from our Michigan facilty potentially saving you hundreds of Dollars.

This current stock order is scheduled to arrive here early January but in order to gurantee that we need to place it with the factory this coming Friday so you'll have to let us know what you need pretty soon.

Check out the wheels at braidusa.com and let us know if you have any questions or want to place an order. We look forward to taking care of your needs.

We took this pair up to Sno*Drift Rally last month. Well, the big one took the little one.
