*DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A FORSALE THREAD, NO PRICING WILL BE DISCUSSED. THIS THREAD IS SOLELY FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES.

 

30834244576_b85c619762_z.jpg

 

Introducing the official Signature Wheel Gallery and Fitment Q&A Thread. We will showcase our wheels in this thread and we will also openly help you figure out the best wheels/tires setup for your vehicle. It doesn't matter if you're interested in Signature or not, we will do our best to help you where we can.

 

At Signature, we believe in sharing our knowledge and making the car community a better place. We publicly disclosed proven "flush" fitments/offsets/tire sizes on our website and the list will grow as we test fit more vehicles. At Signature, we believe in pushing the fitment limits to be "aggressively tasteful."


We call all of this the Signature Movement, so come on in and ask questions... 

http://www.signaturewheel.com/fitments

Who are we? Signature is founded by a group of car enthusiasts who spent years of modding and racing our personal vehicles. We realized when choosing a set of wheels, you have 2 of 3 choices as follow: (1) Reasonably Priced (2) Strong (3) Lightweight. We created Signature so you no longer have to choose, you can have a set of reasonably priced, ridiculously strong, and ultra light wheels. On top of that, we promise our wheels to arrive at your doorsteps within 5 weeks from ordering. No ifs, buts, or ands... We haven't missed our deadline yet, that's a promise we plan to keep. 

Signature wheels are designed in California and manufactured by one of the top forged wheel manufacturers in the world. We have 50 CNC machines allocated, same factory coating, and a team of engineers to ensure there's no delay on deliveries. Our wheels are machined from the highest grade 6061-T6 aluminum that's been pressed at thousands of ton and heat treated at proprietary temperature. We believe in designs that are strong, light, and timeless. 
 
All Designs are:
 
- *** JWL/VIA TESTED & CERTIFIED (TESTING DONE IN JAPAN) ***
- EXCEED SOLID WORKS FE-ANALYSIS TESTING
- HUB CENTRIC (NO RINGS REQUIRED)
- 100% MADE TO ORDER - NOTHING IS OFF THE SHELF
- CUSTOM OFFSETS AVAILABLE
- IN-HOUSE CUSTOM FINISHING
 
31022984302_2f08c5ed60_c.jpg32895463952_a3238327f7_m.jpg
 
​Our 2-Piece wheels are available with hidden or exposed hardware. If exposed, you can choose the hardware colors to be Black, Aluminum, Gold, or Titanium Blue. OEM TPMS compatible.
 
Options:
- Center-Lock (where applicable)
- Anti-Slip Knurling Bead Tread
- OEM Center Cap Compatibility (when requested)
 
Wheel Finishes:

In this day and age, all wheel manufactures have access to the same and or similiar powders used for wheel finishing.  This can range from solid colors, to fancy brushed or polished transparent colors, like Brushed Black Tinted (often referred to as Brushed Double Dark Tint).  With this in mind, I will periodically be posting the new wheels Signature finishes to give the community a visual for some colors.  Even if you do not order Signature wheels, but like one of our colors, I am sure that an other manufacturer can get close if you send them our picture for reference.  At the end of the day we are just happy to share with the community and help where we can.
 

Go ahead, ask us wheels and tires questions...happyanim.gif

The weight on this set is approx ~21 LBS per what the owner measured.

Huracan is in the process, should have some nice pictures in the next week or so.  Wheels arrived to the customer.

 

 We just took a Huracan order in today for the SV302S as well, so in ~ 5 weeks we should have some nice photos as well.

We do not have any photos of the SV103 on a GT-R, but I do have some on an Audi R8.  The next two GT-R photoshoots we will have will be of the SV302S followed by the SV304S (3- 4 weeks out as order was just placed).

Those are really nice. I prefer the ten spoke wheel design. What offset would work on the gtr?

The 10 Spoke is a very nice design.  For the GT-R we reccomend:

 

1) Ideal for Toyo R888

Wheel Size: 20x10.5 ET37 F / 20x12 ET 20 R

Tires: Toyo R888 - 285/35/20 F & 315/30/20 R

 

2) Ideal For MPSS / Pirelli / R888 (rear slightly stretched since r888 only offers 315)

Wheel Size: 20x10 ET35 F / 20x12 ET 20 R

Tires:  285/35/20 F & 335/30/20 R

They just finished install on a viper

Thank you, sorry for the typo.  

 

By the way, the first set of SV103 for GT-R will actually be mounted soon on this 1000WHP+ build.  Will post more updates on this build soon.

Where are they made?are they private labeled from another brand?

Thank you for the kind words, they look even better in person :)

 

They look great!
Where are they made?are they private labeled from another brand?

 

 

Great question, the wheels are designed here in California, however the wheels themselves are manufactured 100% in-house in Taiwan.  There are over 50 CNC machines allocated for Signature Wheels manufacturing.  Signature Wheels facility has the following in-house operations

 

- Wheel Forging (this creates the T6061 aerospace grade aluminum used on the center design)

- Lip Spun Forging (this creates the lips used on the multi-piece designs; if its a monoblock, a single forging is solely used)

 

- Wheel Engineering & Development

- Wheel Lathing ( This process preps the forging for machining) 

- Wheel Machining (the actual cutting of the wheel design)

- Wheel Deburring ( cleaning up the wheel, all done by hand)

- Wheel Roundout Testing / Roadforce Testing (ensure the wheel is true and not defective)

- Wheel Brushing/Polishing/Powdercoating (wheel finishing)

- Wheel Assembly / Packing / Shipping

 

- JWL / VIA Certified Dynamic Radial Fatigue 

- JWL / VIA Certified Dynamic Cornering Fatigue

- JWL / VIA Certified Impact Test Equipment 

 

-----

 

Unlike a great majority of todays wheel companies, everything from Signature Wheels is 100% made/done in-house at their facility.  Every design is tested to stringent JWL / VIA standards "Japan Light Alloy Wheel Standard."

 

 

The dirty secret in todays wheel industry is that too many companies are solely relying on Solidworks FE-Anlysis testing for the structural integrity of their wheels.  FE-Analysis testing is defined as "Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a computer based method of simulating/analysing the behaviour of engineering structures and components under a variety of conditions. It is an advanced engineering tool that is used in design and to augment/replace experimental testing."

 

So if a company tells you that their wheels exceed "FEA Analysis" or "FE-Analysis" testing, they are pretty much telling you, the consumer, that their wheel structures exceed the experimental testing simulation ran in a computer program...in other words, the computer says its "ok" to use and solely that. (provided they assigned the correct material and force during the simulation)

 

I am not saying that FE-Analyis testing is a bad thing because its not, its a very good base to cover before actually testing the wheel.

 

 

I will send you a little more information privately :)

 

-----

 

TLDR: Signature Wheels are designed in California, Manufactured in-house in Taiwan (through all the steps) and stringently adhere to JWL / VIA standards.

seems like the SV103 has been quite popular lately, here is another R8, which mounted a fresh set over the weekend:
