Something is happening in the wheel market – brand spanking new to the UK, 7Twenty has been making a noise for some time, and now with products landing with customers across Europe, the noise is only getting louder.
The 7Twenty wheel range is not for the feint hearted, featuring a selection of designs evolved from traditional styles made popular by the JDM and Drift scene in extreme widths, low offsets and eye catching finishes.
Launched in 2014 with the Style14, the 7Twenty wheel range has now grown to include four more designs in an even more aggressive range of sizes and fitments.
The Style21 is available in 7.5×17” & 8.0×18” in gloss white and matt grey with optional graphic decals. With a 5-100 and 5-114.3 fitment in et 40 & 42, these will be ideal on a range of vehicles such as Honda Civic and Subaru Impreza.
The Style44 features a dished mesh design in 8.0×15”, 9.0×15”, 8.0×16” and 9.0×16” in matt bronze and matt grey, with 4-100 and 4-114.3 PCDs, strictly available in offset 0.
The split 5-spoke Style46 is a real head turner with it’s deep concave spoke design, coming in 9.5×18” and 10.5×18” in PCDs of 5-100, 5-112, 5-114.3 and 5-120 in gloss white, matt bronze and hyperblack in offsets of ET10-20. The 4.4 inch drop on the concave of the 10.5” makes it one of the most concave wheels on the market!
The dished 5-spoke Style49 is available in 8.0×17”, 9.0×17”, 10.0x 17”, 9.5×18” and 10.5×18” in matt bronze, matt grey and hyperblack. With PCDs of 5-114.3 and 5-120, this is sure to feature heavily on Jap and BMW vehicles. The dish size remains strong on all the different width variations and reaches a huge 5 inch on the 10.5×18.
Project Manager for 7Twenty, Thierry Hooker, explained the thinking behind 7Twenty: “Having been involved in the drift scene for a number of years, I realised the need for big dishes and deep concaves combined with clean design and aggressive fitment. Each of the wheel models have been designed with specific vehicles in mind, from a street car to a competition car.”
Thierry continues: “We got some fantastic face-to-face feedback at the Japfest shows in May and August. We’re really excited to start seeing wheels on cars, and pictures are already flying in via our Facebook and Instagram profiles.”
The wheel range is now available on 7Twenty’s newly launched website, and stock is already shipping to a select number of specifically chosen distributors/stockists across the UK and Europe.
With precision engineered coilovers and adjustable arms also a part of their product range, 7Twenty are poised to overhaul cars across the drift/JDM scenes.
