Thanks to Stefan D’s for sending in his BMW M3 (E46) on WORK VS-XX in White (WHT) Finish. Sizing is a 19×10.0 +9 front & 19×11.5 +29 rear.
Thanks to Dave @ Minds Corp for sending in his Audi R8 on WORK Equip E05 20” in Black Anodized (SKA/B) Finish w/ Glossy Black Anodized Barrel.
WORK Wheels Japan forwarded these latest shots of a Ferrari F430 on WORK Equip E10 wheels.
This Aston Martin DB9 Volante has on a set of WORK Equip E10 as well.
Through the magic of the internet I stumbled upon a company from Japan called Carvan, who specializes in aftermarket wheels and accessories. While looking through their gallery, I noticed that the majority of wheels they sell are WORK Wheels. First up was this R35 Skyline GT-R, which has a set of WORK Equip E05 wheels in Composit Buffed-Silver (CBS) Finish. Sizing is a 20×10.0 F & 20×11.0 R.
This Odyssey really caught my attention. For wheels they went with a WORK Gnosis GS1 wheels in Matte Deep Black (MDB) Finish and Bronze Anodized Lip. Wheel sizing is 19×8.5 F & 19×9.5 R, with a 215/35/19 all around.
The Bronze Anodized Lip option from WORK Wheels is really one of my favorite recent options to release. At different angles and lighting the finish of the lip changes its tone, and can be comboed up with other face finishes to make a one of a kind wheel.
This Toyota Alphard also went with the custom finish route, on its set of WORK Schwert SC4 in Black Clear Red (BCR) Finish. The paint process to achieve this look is a multistage process that adds another dimension to the wheel. Wheel sizing is 20×8.5 F & 20×9.5 R, with a 245/35/20 all around.
The Mazda MPV has really come a long way since the “catching keys from across seas” days. This one has a set of WORK Gnosis GS1 in Brush Silver Clear (BRU) Finish, with sizing 19×8.5 & 245/40/19 all around.
This Honda Fit went the one piece route with a set of WORK Emotion XD9 in WORK Metal Buff (WMB) Finish. Sizing is a 17×7.0 with a 205/40/17 all around.
There’s a ton more in the Carvan Gallery, check it out here.
Wheels are the brand new WORK Equip E05 in the Super Chrome (SC) Finish.
Sizing is a 22×10.5 F & 22×11.5 R, with a 255/30/22 F & 295/25/22 R.
Previous to that set of wheels, they had on a set of WORK Varianza T1S in Matte Black (MBL) Finish with Step Rim option.
As if two sets of wheels weren’t enough, previous to that they had another set of WORK Varianza T1S in WORK Black Chrome (WBC) Finish with Step Rim option.
I like the way Step Rim looks on the GTR, it definitely gives it a musclar feel along with filling up the wheel well.
Since they’ve been specializing in Skyline for some time now, it’s only right they have a R34 GT-R.
This tough 34 sports a set of WORK Meister S1 2P wheels in Bright Buff Finish (BBF). Sizing is a 20×10.5 +6 (T-Disk) F & 20×10.5 -7 (A-Disk) R, with a 245/35/20 all around. Unfortunately 20″ Meister S1 2P is discontinued, but 16″ through 19″ sizing is still available.
Recently it looks like they modernized it a bit with a set of WORK Varianza T1S in WORK Black Chrome (WBC) Finish.
Hailing from Ireland, Dean has been drifting since he was 16 years old! I think the best I was doing at 16 was parallel parking, and not even that well! You can follow him and his driving at his site deankearney.com
The car runs a set of WORK Meister S1 2PC wheels in Bright Buff Finish (BBF). Women might have Tiffany, but the men have WORK Wheels.
While we’re on the Ireland tip, Ian Bergin of Prodrift Europe got in touch with me and mentioned that Dean is looking to compete here in the U.S with the Formula D series. Anyone here in the states looking for some drivers from across the pond?
If you’re wondering why there’s three WORK equipped 86’s here (terrible unintentional pun), it’s because Ian is also is an avid WORK Wheels + Corolla owner. The Corolla above on WORK Meister S1 2PC in Silver (SIL) Finish is a 20V setup that he’s currently got for sale. The car to the left is his previous competition vehicle, on WORK Equip 03 in Gold (GLD) Finish.
This orange 86 on WORK Equip 03’s is I guessing the same vehicle in a different colorway. According to Ian, this photo (with other Ireland native driver Eric O’Sullivan at the wheel) is from a Halloween drift festival. Fireworks in the trunk, a fire breathing scantily clad female, and a pumpkin colored Corolla making smoke…does it get any zanier? You can view more of pics on Ian’s Facebook page.
I covered this car previously in another entry, but this car is too clean to not post again. Another demo car for Vertex USA, this S14 is a good example of how putting quality parts together results in a noteworthy result.

That’s what this guy Paul did with his Miata and a set of insane WORK Equip 01’s in Black Polish (BP) Finish. Captured through the marvelous lenswork of Linhbergh Nguyen, let’s see how you can make the impossible, possible.
Just as a forewarning, this is NOT for everyone, and I can see you purists scrunching your faces. Basically what you’re seeing here is a 15×10 (yes, TEN) under stock metal fenders. As if the width wasn’t aggressive enough, it’s also a negative offset.
As of recent, a lot of Miata owners have been going with the low and uber flush look, with 15×8’s and 15×9’s in low offsets…but as far as I’m aware, this is the first set of 10’s to be pulled off in this fashion.
With a shot this good, you’d swear it came straight out of the WORK Wheels master catalog. That isn’t the case, just the handiwork of Mr. Nguyen.
If this isn’t WORK Wheels LOVE, then I don’t know what is. When you’ve got 4 dudes in a car, and you’re trying to transport 4 wheels and tires INSIDE the car at the same time, sometimes you gotta get cozy.
This has got to be one of my favorite shots I’ve seen from Linhbergh. There is really something spectacular that happens when you can take an otherwise normal event and capture it through a lens. Since Paul needed some real tire pros to stretch his 205/45/15 on a 10″, he had to enlist the “if you bring it, we’ll try it” stretching skills of City Tire Online in South Gate, CA. If you’re ever in the area and are looking for a legit tire shop, stop in and say hi to John, Brian, & the gang. I take all my personal stuff there, and they take care of my wheels, give good service, and do it right.
…Lambo? WORK Wheels Japan posted up some pics from the Automesse 2009 autoshow in Osaka, Japan. Keep in mind that even though WORK Wheels is very popular amongst the Japanese vehicle segment, WORK can build pretty much any wheel for any vehicle, including exotics and European makes.
This Lamborghini Gallardo features the brand new WORK Equip E05 wheel in Composit Buffed-Silver (CBS) Finish, which is a brand new release for 2009. This wheel is a 3 piece wheel, and is a made out of a high quality FORGED aluminum alloy. Good to see that WORK Wheels chose to resurrect the Equip series.
