If you knew that you could make a Cressida look this crazy, you might not have passed it up when you could’ve got it as a hand me down. Best of all, throw in that it’s a RWD platform and you’ll probably bubble with more regret. The owner of this Cressida hails from Hawaii, and it’s obvious that he has no concern for being conservative.
With lip sizes in the FRONT bigger than most run on their rears, this set of WORK VS-KF is not your ordinary set of wheels either. With widths possible up to 13″ wide with the KF and enough offsets to make a mathematician’s head hurt, there’s no way you won’t find a fitment that works for you.
Wheels are WORK Meister S1 3P in Matte Black (MBL) Finish. Sizing is 19×9.0 +24 (T-Disk) F & 19×10.0 +29 (O-Disk) R.
The guys over at Vertex USA know what running “real” parts is all about. Vertex is one of the most well known aerodynamics manufacturers for the Japanese aftermarket. Since their aero kits are high quality, it’s no doubt that their cars are paired up with wheels that are of the same standards.
Check out their site to see some of the meanest modified vehicles you’ll see stateside.

Came across these pics of a Mazda RX7 (FC) from Colorado on WORK Emotion XD9 in Matte Gray Silver (MGS) finish.
A customer Rick V. sent us pics of his Audi A4 with WORK Varianza T1S in Machine Silver Polish (MSP) Finish. Clean & simple, the T1S is a good match for this car…just enough sport, but still enough luxury to turn heads at the valet.
It seems as though everyone and their Mom’s first suggestion when doing a hybrid swap is to “put a LS in it.” There’s no doubting the potential of a LS powered anything, but it’s hard to find those that execute it well (and some don’t even finish their build). This is definitely not the case with this Nissan 350Z (Z33), as it’s probably the most “complete” hybrid Z’s I’ve come across.
Hovering over the Project Mu big brake calipers are a set of Work Varianza T1S 19×9.5 + 24 & 19×11.0 + 22 in Machine Silver Polish (MSP) Finish.
Click on the source to see more pics of the motor and interior setup on this car. According to the source, it was up for sale, but not sure if anyone picked it up. Would be one heck of a turn key car, that’s for sure.
With so many finishes to keep track of, it’s nice to sometimes see actual pictures of the wheel to get a better idea of the color. One of our customers requested to see what the Machined Gloss Black (MBG) finish looked like on the WORK Emotion XD9. While I was at it, I figured I’d share it with you all as well, since it is quite a unique finish.
The MBG finish has a machined/painted face with a polished lip, and has the normal glow-in-the-dark spoke decal for a XD9.
It’s hard to come up with a way to accurately this color…as it appears on the monitor should be dead on. I’d say something like an olive grayish finish. Also notice the difference between the face of the spokes and the sides of the spokes. It’s all about the small details that make a wheel…
Note: this finish is discontinued and no longer available for the WORK Emotion series.
As you might or might not know, WORK Wheels USA offers powdercoating services for one piece wheels. This presents two advantages: 1) more colors that might not be done by Japan & 2) faster turnaround time than coming from Japan. If a set of Emotions are in stock in the USA for example, turnaround time on powdercoating it another color would be ~2-3 days.
This finish shown is Endurance Black. It is a special non-sticking paint, and is a ultra matte finish. As far as powdercoated black color goes, WORK USA can also do Gloss Black, or Semi Gloss Black. Other powdercoated colors include (but are not limited to): silver, red, white, and many others.
Powdercoating is a very durable finish, and will withstand to the elements as well as it will help you stand out in the crowd. For questions regarding what colors can be done, contact any Authorized WORK Wheels Dealer.
Here’s a picture of the wheels above installed on Zack @ Rare JDM’s G35 Coupe. He picked these up to use as track wheels, but they equally double as show wheels. Nice color combo!
A little known gem in the WORK Wheels lineup is the WORK Schwert SC1M wheel. The SC1M is a one piece version based off the style of the two piece WORK Schwert SC1 wheel. The SC1M comes in a 20″ version (also 16″ & 17″) that is perfect for SUV’s and minivans. Here’s a Lexus RX on WORK Schwert SC1M in Black Polish (BP) Finish.
I wish America had this model, but here’s a Toyota Vellfire also on WORK Schwert SC1M in Black Polish (BP) Finish.
