Enkei Brings Back the Classic Apache Wheel

Friday, May 18, 2012 by Doc Horvath

Enkei has a rich history dating back over thirty years, originating in Japan with a focus on lightweight aftermarket and Original Equipment wheels intended for high-performance applications. In fact, Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton and his team rely on Enkei wheels for their durability and weight savings for their race cars.

While many new vehicles come equipped with Enkei wheels from the factory, including Subaru, Mitsubishi and Honda, many consider the older designs to be what built the Enkei brand and reputation. With that in mind, Enkei is revisiting some of their classic designs from the past and has recently introduced the Apache II in select 15" sizes for Honda, Toyota, Datsun/Nissan and other four lug applications.

The Apache II model is available in both machined with black accent and sliver machined with clearcoat, four spoke finishes with a polished lip. Apache II wheels feature simulated assembly bolts to give the illusion of a multi-piece wheel but with a more cost-effective, one-piece design.

Be sure to check out all the wheels in Enkei's Classic line to see if one is a good fit for your vehicle.

I have a 2011 Hyundai Sonata Limited. I love Michelin tires typically. My car came with hanook, which happened to be good too. I need tires asap, but it seems that besides size the speed rating seems to be a factor. Why do I need to go with the same speed rating? That has never come up before and we have purchased many tires. What tires would you recommend for wear, quiet and especially wet conditions.

Deb,
Hyundai has designed the suspension around tires that have a specific (minimum) strength to the body of the tire which is indicated by the speed rating. Our best recommendation would be the Michelin Premier AS (http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=Primacy%20MXM4&partnum=155VR7MXM4P&tab=Survey)
