Along with many new wheels launching in 2014, we are also focusing on additions to our existing models. This is the case with the brand new WORK VS-XX Step Rim, which has two main differences between the standard model.
1) Step Rim Barrel: Typically, the VS-XX has been offered using a Full Reverse barrel, which has a flat lip that extends to the edge of the barrel. This VS-XX Step Rim model uses a Step Rim barrel, which has a “step” in the lip to the edge of the barrel. In order to achieve this, a new center disk (with smaller diameter) was designed to properly adapt to the new barrel design.
2) Larger Big Brake Caliper Clearance: In recent years, vehicle manufacturers have equipped vehicles from the factory with large brake setups. In addition, aftermarket brake manufacturers have also increased sizing of their brake applications. As a result, WORK Wheels has added additional center disks that offer more brake clearance to clear both factory and aftermarket big brake setups. Please note that brake clearance must be verified with WORK Wheels USA, as clearance is not a given.
Due to its three piece modular construction, you can choose from a range of provided offsets, allowing for varying wheel fitment for different vehicles. Standard center disk finishes include Burning Silver (BS) and Gold (GLD) Finish. Sizing comes in 19″ and 20″, with widths from 7.5″ up to 12.5″ wide. The wheel comes standard with anodized polished barrels. Standard bolt patterns are 5×100 & 5×114.3, but can be done custom in 5×98 through 5×120.65. Wheels are custom built to order in Japan, using the latest low pressure casting and barrel forming technology.
In order to demonstrate these new additions, WORK Wheels USA installed various configurations of the WORK VS-XX on a Nissan GT-R (R35), Nissan 370Z (Z34), and Mitsubishi Evo X (CZ4A). All vehicles come standard with big brake calipers from the factory, and we were able to clear them without the use of spacers.
First is Saul B’s Nissan GT-R (R35) on WORK VS-XX Step Rim in Burning Black (BKB) Finish. Sizing is a 20×10.0 front & 20×11.5 rear.
Second is the Nissan 370Z Nismo Edition, which is on WORK VS-XX Step Rim in Burning Silver (BS) Finish with optional Hairline Barrel Finish.
Last but not least is a Mitsubishi Evolution X on WORK VS-XX in Gold (GLD) Finish. While this is not a step rim, this demonstrates our ability to clear the large OEM Brembo calipers with no spacers.
