    Nice wheels bump, glws. not my size unfortunately or I'd like a matching set for winters.
    extra info I found, Now I can feel like a real Touge Specialist!

    "BIM Creative has been producing wheels in Japan for a long time now. They have also been supplying their sponsored motor sports teams with wheels since inception. They produce a range of specialized brands with definite purposes in mind. These include the Down Hill Special and Drift Master series.


    The BIM Creative brand is now operating under the Bridgstone group. The DHS Wheel range is now using it's own identity.

    The Down Hill Special Brand of wheels are designed specifically for the smaller machines in the Japanese market where sports driving is the target user application. These wheels are designed with an image for the ?Touge Specialist?, the driver who loves to attack the mountain pass without the full stresses that circuit racing creates.

    The Down Hill Special ae-034 wheels are a 6 spoke design with a simple aggressive spoke design. They are a cast single piece rim with for lower cost advantages. They still maintain excellent strength and relative light weight.

    These wheels are modelled on forged designs to create a more aggressive looking wheel with bold lettering sticker sets to further enhance the race look and feel.

    Available in two colours to suit your vehicle of White and Dark Gun Metal.

    These wheels come complete with sticker sets with Red Lettering for White wheels and Yellow lettering for Dark Gun Metal wheels.

    These wheels are designed with a single disk design for 15 to 18 inch versions.

    Wheels include an air valve however centre caps are not. To keep the image of these Down Hill Special wheels, matching centre caps have not been developed. "
