Theme Tuesdays: SSR Longchamps

0

It’s time for another wheel appreciation Theme Tuesday. This time I’ve thumbed through the classic Japanese wheel catalog and landed on the timeless SSR Longchamp wheel. The Long champ came in a few different variations but each has proven to be equally versatile.

Long (pun intended) out of production if you want a Longchamp wheel you are going to have to do some searching. They are not the rarest of the rare (like say Defin fins), but if you like a good deal perhaps look for something else. Also I think they topped out at 17 inches so if you’re looking for something bigger you might be out of luck.

 

Longchamps are a great wheel for basically any classic Japanese vehicle
