The revolution of gramLIGHTS reigns supreme in the R Series

While sharpening the performance of sports wheels by injecting cutting-edge theory and technology, RAYS’ gramLIGHTS also focuses on designs and finishes that are ahead of their time. Among the many popular products in the line-up, the “R Series” is a royal gem that competes at the forefront of drifting competitions such as D1GP and Formula Drift, and is popular in a variety of scenes from the street to the circuit. The newest addition to the series, the “57NR”, is introduced here.

The beautifully shimmering glass-black, sophisticated 10-spoke fascinates

The R Series from gramLIGHTS is well-known for the 57CR, 57DR, and 57XR. The newest addition to this flagship series is the 57NR, with its edgy slim spokes that create a stylish sporty look underfoot.

The 10-spoke wheel follows the traditional RAYS N-series design with excellent stress dispersion performance, but was approached with the theme of one of the strongest wheels in the series in consideration of the current sports car situation, where machine potential and tire grip performance have improved significantly. The new ‘C-RORM’ design, which increases the rigidity of the spoke apertures, and the ‘H-S-PLUS’ construction method, a high-strength technology that forges the inner rim with a special process without changing the weight, have been used to forge it into an advanced 10-spoke design.

Of course, it wasn’t just performance that the 57NR aimed to be the strongest. To realize the simple, orthodox 10-spoke wheel into an attractive wheel, part of the rim flange, which has been thickened to bring out its toughness, has been flattened and a machined logo has been added to accentuate the outer circumference. The appearance of the wheel has been finished with a strong assertiveness, without losing its simplicity.

A beautiful shimmering finish is added to the Sun Yard GR86, which is a wide-body kit from Eidolo, a US manufacturer, that gives off an overwhelming power. The fine glass flakes are scattered on the surface, so when they catch the light, the shine is drawn out from under the intrepid footpegs. The stoicism of dark bronze, which enhances the competition image, is also attractive, but if you want to enjoy the functional beauty of the 57NR with a high-quality finish, choose the Glass Black.
