Project Evo: New Wheels from ssIX Project
Just in time for the 2006 Evo Tuner Shootout, we received our new wheels sized to accommodate our 275 width Nitto NT-01 tires. The P521 is a new offering from ssIX Project manufactured by RH. The Lancer Evolution specific application comes in an aggressive 18x9 +30 fitment which offers both style and performance. The available finishes include metallic silver, gloss black, and our favorite, the matt bronze which offers a degree of subtlety that fits well on the Project Evo. The P521 is a 2 piece wheels with an anodized lip with all the quality you would expect from Racing Hart. They are not the lightest wheel on the market, however the weight is typical for wheels of this size and style. The fitment is near perfect with good clearance on both the brakes and coilovers. The fenders were rolled slightly for the 275/35/18 tires, however with a more typical tire size, this would not be an issue. Last but certainly not least, they look great and gives the Project Evo and more aggressive stance.
