TE37V vs MTE37
« on: January 23, 2011, 07:23:48 pm »
Right now I have a set of mildly concaved 15x8 +45 te37 in 5x114.3

I've been looking for a more agressive setup - ideally 15x9 +12, 15x10 +0, or 15x11 -12.

My goal is forged lightweig ht wheels that have a concave face and clear spoon calipers without spacers. 15's are a must. 

Now I saw recently that in march, the te37v are going to be offered in 15x9 +15 5x114.3

Well as I'm biding my time, I started researchi ng te37v and came across the mte37 also:

Haha, well the mte37 only come in 14" and 4 lug.

Matter of fact, the te37v are supposed to be 4x100 or 4x114.3 only; but rays started making some tentative ly in 5x114.3 - at least thats the projectio n.  God I hope these will work for me.
