Racing is where all of the best R & D happens. Engineers obsess over every detail looking for the slightest advantage to shave fractions of a second off of lap times. What we learn on the world's premier circuits is eventually implemented into mainstream products and made available to the weekend racer. That's how the new Enkei GTC02 was born. Based on the RA series wheels used in the Super GT racing series, the GTC02 pulls from the same bag of tricks as the RA series to give weekend racers the competitive edge they need to win. Utilizing a 6 split-spoke design that disperses stresses efficiently allows us to keep the spokes as thin as possible and make cuts in them on the fronts and sides to shave weight even further. The GTC02 is available in sizing ranging from 18x8 to 19x10.5 in a wide variety of PCD and offset configurations to fit most modern sports cars.
All Enkei wheels are engineered to pass rigorous testing. In fact, Enkei established its own test standard called "Spec-E," which is tougher than JWL requirements. Enkei's Spec-E test setting requires a higher drop point in the impact test and 20% more cycles for the rotary bending fatigue and dynamic radial fatigue tests than JWL standards. The Spec-E represents Enkei's confidence in its technology and quality of Enkei wheels.
Enkei developed a new manufacturing process to produce the next aluminum wheel generation. The Most Advanced Technology (M.A.T) combines one-piece cast wheel technology with a rim forming technology called spinning process. Using this new technology of casting and rim forming by M.A.T process, is critical to improve drastically the material property and strength of the wheels. Rim-Rolled technology shapes the rim to improve material elongation without sacrificing the wheels hardness.
