Arrow 2014 Photoshoot (SSR GTV01 Content)

This thread was created mainly to give me an excuse to take pictures of my car and also to praise the GTV01. I was skeptical about this wheel because it seemed all the pictures that were available didn't show how concave it was. I really wanted this wheel to work because it resembled the LMGT4 and, as you may know, the LMGT4 has been discontinued and to find a decent set in desirable sizes is pricey.

I emailed SSR USA to see if there were any GTV01s in the country and they referred me to James @ R/T Tuning. James advised me there was a set of 4-18x10.5+15 wheels arriving within days that had not been spoken for so I quickly expressed interest. The transaction went seamlessly and he even gave me a discount even though I didn't request one.

The wheels arrived and came with valve stems, SSR valve stem caps, center caps and 8 SSR decals. I only used 4 decals and put the other 4 away in case the originals get messed up. After mounting tires and comparing the weight to my OEM wheels and tires, here are the results:

OEM wheels/tires - 45 lbs. per front wheel/tire
48 lbs. per rear wheel/tire

SSR wheels/tires - 48 lbs. per front wheel/tire
51 lbs. per rear wheel/tire

I should mention the tires I chose were Nitto NT05 275/35 for the front and 285/35 for the rear.

All in all, I am very happy with my decision. I realize that I could have bought other wheels in similar sizes for less that are widespread in the Z community but I took a chance on a wheel that no one had yet. I hope you enjoy the pictures, I have a feeling this wheel will only grow in popularity for the Z.

If you have ever had to maintain polished lips and cleaning between wheel bolts, you would understand haha.

Love this setup! I'm still debating on a 10.5 all around or a 9.5/10.5 myself.

I love em! I think I'm starting to fall more in love with 'tuner' type wheels rather than big lips wheels.

I'm not normally a big fan of black wheels, but I absolutely love these.

Are you headed to ZdayZ this year? I want to see these things in person!

Very nice! The simple 5-spoke concave is perfect.

I love the CF lip on the front bumper. Wheels are hot, too.

Tell me more about the CF lip. Details please.
