    There are a few wheels in post 71, but none of them are polished. The 2 piece setup you saw has a brushed aluminum clear coated barrel.

    On the 2 piece wheel we do offer polishing, but only on the barrel. No polishing is offered on any of the wheel faces, or the monoblock wheels

    The new 7-Spoke Signature Reserved SV902’s are finally here. In love with the way the new I-Beam cut on the spokes turned out. Each set custom built for your offset, width, diameter, and brake package. Kiss those caliper clearance and small lug nut hole issues goodbye . Say hello to a 21-22 lb 7-spoke wheel capable of street and track duty.

    Signature Reserved SV902 - GT350R Spec - Matte Bronze & Royal Gold

    All of the initial SV902 orders have shipped and should be in the hands of enthusiasts next week. A couple sets have been mounted, so here are a few teasers to hold you over.

    Patrick Sheedy Signature Reserved SV901 - 19x11 GT350 Track Spec - Brushed Triple Black Tinted

    Enthusiast Patrick Sheedy wasted no time getting his track spec SV901 out on track this past weekend. More to come of his as well.

    SV901 Sheedy.jpg SV901 Sheedy Track.jpg

    Signature Reserved SV901 - GT350R Spec - Brushed Aluminum Clear

    I had the opportunity to have a set of the SV901 on my own GT350R for a short time. These are on the way to their new home soon, but here is the result against my Lightning Blue R

    Signature Reserved SV901 Weights - 19x11 / 19x11.5 Modified GT350R Spec

    This is a naked weight of the Signature Reserved SV901 with wheel weights still attached from the mounting process. Weights came in at 23/22 lbs front and rear. This is using the modified front GT350R specs to increase concavity. In a traditional GT350R spec, with weights removed, or Track spec this will be a 22/21lb setup

    Ceramic coating is an aftermarket option that we don’t have any recommendations for. Best bet is to consult the manufacturer of your ceramic coating, or a local detail shop that has experience with the product. They should either have a specific cleaner or instructions for you.

    Look forward to your end results! Love the ceramic coating on my wheels.

    Signature Reserved SV902 - GT350R Spec - Brushed Triple Black Tinted

    First set of Brushed Triple Black Tinted Signature Reserved SV902 have been delivered. This finish looks right at home on the wheel, and will be an excellent way to keep a dark colored wheel, while venturing away from all black.

    Signature Reserved SV902 - GT350R Spec - Matte Black

    Couple of installed pics on Francisco’s GT350R. The 7-spoke with the I-beam cuts are a compliment to the body lines. Loving these as a fully forged aluminum option for keeping your GT350R carbon fiber wheels safe, increasing caliper clearance, and reducing rotating mass on your standard GT350. Not to mention the new pricing on the OEM GT350R Wheel is up to $4000 each or more.

    1)What brand of aftermarket lug nut is considered to have the best specs for SIGNATURE Wheels
    Im looking to use on my Brushed/Clear SV 701's

    2)What is correct torque for above Lug Nuts/Wheels

    3)My wheels did not include any factory manual, guide or instructions as the outside box label
    implied.

    4) Has anybody seen a protective sleeve or cap that can cover the lug bolts/studs while
    mounting the $$$$$ Forged Wheels and then once in place the thin plastic/nylon would be
    pulled off and lug nuts installed

    1) The wheels are designed to work with the OEM lug nuts, but if you decide to change I have always been a fan of Gorilla since they have locking options.

    2) With our wheels, or any other, you should always maintain the OEM torque rating. These are designed to work with the OEM components. The rating for the lug nut is based on the proper amount of preload needed with the stud, not the surface of the wheel. Keep your OEM values unless you are using dissimilar metals or some type of lubricant. At that point you will want to consult who ever the manufacturer of those products are. Long story short, our wheels alone do not change the torque rating you need to use from OEM.

    3) There should not be any particular instructions you need to follow. Mounting, balancing, and TPMS install will occur the same as your OEM wheel.

    4) I have not seen any protective sleeve for the lug nut, however wrapping your socket in electrical tape has been an old school and cost effective way of protecting the lug nut recess.

    Good luck on the install!

    Thanks for your quick reply...............
    I may or may not be some inept stupid customer in your eyes (my words not yours).
    Its MY opinion that any wheel company mfg that is selling $4K-$5K wheel sets, should
    print out some of the basics, answer FAQ's, so buyers like myself dont have to waste
    our/your time to confirm what evidently every other buyer/installer/user already knows.

    Or this a cultural difference between the Taiwanese and American mindset ????

    Believe it or not we have a lot of customers who buy wheels from us, and it is their first time ever doing it. We enjoy working with enthusiasts at all levels and look forward to the education process. Getting to work with you one on one is something that helps set us apart from other companies.

    Signature is an American based company who has its manufacturing done overseas. Not a Taiwanese company that sells its products to the US. All of us at the company are Americans as well, but that has nothing to do with it. We intentionally build each wheel to work with the OEM components so you do not need installation instructions. Just take them to your local installer and bolt it up the same way you took the factory ones off. One of the benefits of our wheels.

    If you need any help, we are always here and available to answer any questions you might have. Whether it be by email, phone, text, internet forums, or Social media we got you covered. I hope that you continue to ask questions, but you can also send me a message or email directly if need be.

    Thank You,

    Signature Reserved SV902 VS OEM GT350R Carbon Fiber Wheel

    Some pretty amazing comparison shots of the Signature Wheel Reserved SV902 up next to the OEM GT350R Carbon fiber wheel. Hard to believe these are within 5 lbs of the carbon fiber wheel, have better caliper clearance, and a full set can be had for the cost to replace just one of the carbon wheels.

    Huge thanks to Matt Solnik and Jeff Caco for taking these.

    Here we are three months into 2019 and it has been hectic. Crazy weather has been affecting us all and keeping the hot rods tucked away. Those of us lucky enough not to be affected by flooding, snow storms, and salty roads can really feel for the cars being stored during winter. Here is a little update from some enthusiasts to brighten the day, and get you ready to purchase your spring/summer wheel.

    Dean M Signature Reserved SV901 – GT350R Spec – Brushed Triple Black Tinted

    Dean found himself on the fence about a set of wheels for a while. One night something came over him and the decision was made. 5 weeks later Dean had the new Signature Reserved SV901 in hand. The difference between a properly engineered, well built, and flawlessly finished fully forged wheel is something you have to experience to really understand the value. Dean is now a believer.

    Jeff C (IG Jeffc73_50R Signature Reserved SV902 – GT350R Spec -Gloss Black
    Jeff has been one of the first enthusiasts to receive a set of the Gloss Black 7-Spoke SV902. Again, these are not intended to be a replica wheel, but stand on their own. After seeing them mounted on jeff’s Shadow Black GT350R, I think they will build an excellent reputation of their own. Not to mention double the caliper clearance of the OEM GT350 wheel.

    P, Sheedy (IG @Sheedysgt350) Signature Reserved SV901 – 19x11 Square Rotatable – Brushed Triple Black Tinted


    Sheedy has been very rewarding to watch progress as a track addict, and skilled driver. This man has photos of this car for days, and I never get tired of seeing it. Watching these 5-spoke wheels take the track abuse and look good doing it will bring me joy for many days to come.
