The 5-spoke layout is perhaps one of the most iconic in the history of wheel design and with the Tarmac leading the way, the 5-spoke has come to define much of what we do at FIFTEEN52. For the introduction of our Super Touring line, we aimed to design another 5-spoke with influence drawn from the 90s.
The FIFTEEN52 Chicane has a flat face similar to our Tarmac, but the spokes roll back at the lip to give the wheel depth and profile that looks straight out of the motorsport paddock. Additionally, thinner spokes give room to display big brakes in proper Super Touring fashion if so desired. For the Chicane's Lug Cap System, we turned to a more hard-edged bowl while still utilizing a threaded nut and shaft to attach the assembly like our favorite race cars.
