Yes they are made by HRE - exclusively made for Arkym.

aus, yes. The J12 is designed/manufactured by HRE specifically for Arkym.

Sorry about the possible misunderstanding.... when I say "official" in the title, I do not mean I represent HRE or Arkym by any means. I just mean that I've started a thread for a collection of J12 pictures

I finally got back in town to bust open four boxes of custom-made-to-order forged Arkym J12s and they look absolutely fabulous!

Words cannot describe how beautiful these wheels are. I'm bummed that I'm not able to slap tires on these until Monday but I did snap quick pictures with my dslr to share Enjoy...

Front 19x9.5


Rears 19x11


Rears are very wide with a bit more concavity


Awesome


I love the attention to detail - especially the CNC milled Arkym logo and even the size and offsets are milled on the inner lip!


A few more macros






And a few more bits and pieces....

It looks gunmetal-ish. They just call it a different name - Gloss Charcoal

Damn, those bronze colored wheels would look hot on my Lemans Blue. I can't find pricing info anywhere.

Nice choice in wheels, if the price is right these are an excellent alternative to BBS F's.

I should have these on this week. - gonna get the car detailed for a photoshoot

AMP should open this coming weekend - so I'll be there shaking down the car

I was going to remove the center caps thinking they were plastic (they melt at the racetrack) but was pleasantly surprise that they are solid aluminum! The logo is milled out of billet aluminum!

What are the offsets on the wheels? What sized front tires are you going to use with the 305 rears?

The Un-official Arkym J12 Thread

Got them mounted today! Sorry I didn't have time to detail the car and gel the tires.
It's hitting the track saturday for testing anyways so here are pictures as is.
Please pardon my poor photography skills...
