The latest G16 model in the VOLK RACING G series can be clearly distinguished from the many other mesh design wheels available due to the design being composed of non-stress lines that are used in racing wheel production to create the silhouette. The ability to receive and diffuse input from the road maximized by strong grip and increased stress is the deciding factor in developing a wheel design. Smooth curves that prevent stress from accumulating in one area in conjunction with lines woven with surface composition achieve truly non-stress lines. Soft lines that look as if they were drawn freehand are connected in a skillfully blended, curved composition to capture one’s gaze with an elegance on par with that of design wheels—despite these being racing wheels. The combination of eight-intersection cross spoke design with these lines diffuses stress, promotes improved turning ability, driving stability, and drivability, thereby delivering sharp and smooth handling response to the driver. Appropriate offset settings mean that this cross-sectional shape realizes a beautiful arch and three-dimensional design that alters its expression depending on the angle. The various expressions exhibited include a clean-cut look from head on, a massive appearance from 30 degrees, and dynamic visuals from 50 degrees. Owners who enjoy a life of sports car tuning will no doubt read these changes in expression and be impressed by their beauty and performance. Although outfitting the VOLK RACING G series G16 does not increase a vehicle’s power by even one horsepower, it adds a definite racing feel to the driving experience.

RAYS prominent design mold forging

The design mold forging technique creates and forges into the ideal shape. This forging method provide the strength and rigidity to the wheel as originally designed by creating the fiber flow seamless throughout the wheel.

This silhouette itself could be called a racing wheel

To prevent stress from becoming concentrated in one area, for the G16, we employed a design utilizing non-stress lines, which are frequently used in racing wheels.
As vehicle upgrades mean placing a greater burden on the wheels year after year, non-stress lines provide smooth curves and a surface composition that are receptive to such high-level input values and stress.
This arc-shaped design is extremely delicate when viewed from head on, displaying an elegance befitting of a design wheel. However, when one’s viewpoint is shifted 30 or 50 degrees to the side, the design gradually appears massive and then dynamic.
This design combines the opposing elements of being elegant and racy.

Spoke-side shape

To achieve a lighter weight, the spokes have been designed to be fine and thin while maintaining the required cross-sectional area. Soft lines that appear just as if they were drawn freehand adorn this well-rounded surface. Instead of employing an MC surface processor for this intricate surface composition, we successfully molded the G16 with a design die. This proof demonstrates the evolution of our forging technology.

Frameless center cap and machining logo

We adopted a newly designed frameless center cap for the G16.
The frameless design enabled the design surface to have a larger diameter, which optimized the overall design balance with the wheel.
We engraved letters into the base where the center cap is fitted, achieving a finish appropriate for high quality wheels.

The Bulletproof Automotive website contains many thousands of products purchased in multiple different currencies. All of the prices are entered manually and accurately at the time of entry. Due to the consistently fluctuating international exchange rates, at times prices may not be able to be honored at their original intended rate. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, unfortunately our website is unable to compensate dynamically for what can at times be volatile changes in the cost of items due to currency values fluctuating, changes in prices from suppliers, changes in shipping and import duties, and other factors. Rest assured that any order you place on line will be at zero risk to you in this area. If in the event your order cannot be fulfilled at the original intended website price we will offer you a 100% refund, no questions asked. We will continue to do our best to maintain updated prices and we will always continue to offer our price match guarantees as well to ensure our prices are always the best for you.

Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only. Please review the full Terms & Conditions here.
We do pricing a little differently on our JDM brands and we believe in making things simple and clear. No hidden fees or surcharges. Every price you see includes the shipping cost to our office in Los Angeles, California and all the associated taxes/duties/fees for bringing the products into the US. The only shipping you ever pay is from our facility in the US to your location. Be wary of resellers that don’t include the cost of international shipping in their pricing on JDM parts. While we believe we’ll always have the lowest all-in price on JDM products, we offer a price match guarantee for all authentic parts purchased from authorized dealers as well. For many international customers, it’s much more affordable to ship from the USA than from Japan directly, as the air freight and ocean freight costs are typically much less. However, for customers looking to ship directly from Japan outside of North America, or domestically in Japan, we can provide pricing specifically for that scenario. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any pricing questions or concerns. Please email us at sales@bulletproofautomotive.com with any inquiries.
