GB: Fatlace x AME Wheel Collab Group Buy

Postby ryceboy_124 » Thu Sep 05, 2013 11:36 pm

So if you haven't heard, Fatlace and AME have a collab in the works to release wheels which I think are pretty legit but at the pricing to compete with all thae fake wheels out there without the fake wheel quality. Don't get it twisted...these wheels are made by AME with the highest standards and testing. What Fatlace and AME came up with is the FZERO1 & FZERO2. I have been told that they expect to price these wheels in direct competiton with all the fake wheel companies out there for a complete set but I will have more details from Fatlace once all is finalized.

I don't quite have all the final details just yet as far as sizing or color options but Mark will let me know as soon as he has more info from Japan. If you would like to get in on this group buy and be added to this GB list, please let me know!!! Thanks!

Please feel,free to email me if you have any questions or concerns at jdm8six at gmail dot com

UPDATE 11/03/2013
The 50% deposit has been submitted to Fatlace via PayPal!!! I will keep everyone updated on this thread as I receive updates so please have your remaining 50% balance ready to submit for payment once Fatlace requests it...thanks all!!!

I’ve been working with AME since the debut of the Fatlace Solstice for Sema 2006. We’ve always talked about doing a wheel together but nothing came to fruition until at Tokyo Auto Salon in 2010 when we finally agreed to do something. Fast forward a year later I had a meeting with Itchy, Nobu and Rishie from AME about doing a wheel collaboration. Vintage was on my mind since my recent purchase of the Hakosuka and felt it would be a good idea to pull from the archives of their history.

Image

And so we did. I studied the catalog they sent me from years past and decided that Style #781 and #182FR were to be resurrected. These wheels came from the 1980 Catalog and in order for this to work, we would need to modernize the wheel a bit and add sizes that work with todays market. Another big thing on my mind was pricing. We wanted to make an authentic, real brand with real recognition wheel that is QC’d to the highest standards that is almost the same price as a copy brand. With this in mind we came up with the FZERO1 and FZERO2. Here’s what the wheels will look like with the widers ones having a lot more concavity. Details and pricing will come later but know the prices and specs are for todays market and expect to see the first sets of these at Slammed Society Japan next month on a few cars.

I have successfully done multiple group buys on the old C4AG forums and I am sure many members can vouch for me. :)

I don't know, since he's talking about priced the same as a copy brand I am expecting anywhere between 300-500 per wheel, on the higher side of that range
The thing I care about the most personally is having the right sizes and good quality like he says, not as concerned with the price too much

Put me down for some FZero2s as well, depending on the price and size since I need to fill 40mm flares. Hopefully they are not $3-500/wheel because those are definitely not copy brand prices.

If it's $300-$500 per wheel, they better be good or as good as Volk's

Based on what Mark told me...he is shooting below the $300 range per wheel but its not set in stone yet so I'm waiting for him to get back to me. I'll keep you all updated once I hear back from him. Thanks!!!
