NEAT: Wagon R on Work VS-KF

May 7, 2009 5:00 pm Published by

When they were first introduced, the Suzuki Wagon R became explosively popular in Japan, and has remained the best selling car in its class.

When they look at cool as this with a simple set of lowering springs and Work VS-KF wheels, you can see why.

The fact that it’s turbo doesn’t hurt either!

    can someone explain why vskfs are so popular im just not a fan of them i think they look like commodore rims and yet they are hugely popular were they used on a famous car or something????

    love the kei car tho wouldnt turbo’in it lose its cheap shakken value tho? (probably not the point of this car but just asking)

  • Warren says:

    Its turbo from factory!
    VS-KF + low offset = look like anything but a Commodore.

  • Isidro says:

    exactly what Warren said!

    Being a VS-KF lover and owner of a set I can say that definitely, when you have wide KFs and low offset, you can get some decent lip on there, and that combined with a pretty classic looking 5-spoke design, those rims are pretty much win.

    Then again, they do look kinda like the “Torque Thrust” style rims and what not.

    Oh well, I love them.

    I love those Wagon R’s.

  • That’s probably the reason the VS-KF’s are so popular. I don’t know how expensive Torque Thrust wheels are in Japan, but if the market for imported wheels is anything like the US, serious cash is required. But i do have to say, I am a touch under-whelmed by them.

    I wish that there was a market for Kei-Cars here. I’d love to own one.

    Regardless of opinions on the looks, VS-KF are good because they are; available in a massive range of sizes and offsets, very easy to stretch tyres onto (if that is your thing), very strong and not super expensive.

    Unfortunately they recently discontinued the 17-inch sizes from what I can tell so that is really sad news as I always wanted some on the front of a Koguchi 180SX replica (I know his car had Blitz Technospeed Z2 but they were discontinued too!)

    @inche.helmi

    Kei cars aren’t worth driving unless they’re turbo!
