Theme Tuesdays: SSR Longchamps


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
