View Full Version : S6 Rims

Hi,
I've been using the S6 series of rims pretty regularly for a while now and really like them. They (sorry Atomic) especially seem to work with the Reflex low profile front end with the 19mm diameter - they've become my go to rim.... when the shell I'm using is narrow enough.

Any chance of one day seeing (at least!) a +2 offset version made - especially in W for the rear wheel? I can shim the front wheel up from a 1.5 easily enough, but a +2 rear would be nice for Astons, HSVs etc.

I know its being fussy but I've never liked the look of mixing different rims front and back. Either that or maybe a 19mm diameter disc rim range for the front wheel would be a good solution from my point of view. Now maybe if there was a few thousand like minded individuals... :).

Atomic was aware of wider offset wheels wanted by some racers. Let's see who else wants these. Thanks.

I was one of those that asked long ago for more offsets as well. I still use s6 wheels an would welcome some additional offsets.

It is a very high quality wheel. I too would like to see some higher offset offerings say up to +2.5. both front and rear. The .5 incriments(sp?) make them great for fine tuning steering adjustments.

+2 front/rear and +3 rear for sure!

+2 & +3 front/rear and +3 rear for sure!
Additional suggestion to Sai I mention was making 20's up front.
Now I am cutting 0 Rear's outer lip off to make it like +1 up front to match.

+1 on the 20's up front and more available offsets. This is a wonderful set of wheels in both design and performance/constancy. More size and offset options are eagerly awaited.

only reason i never used S6 wheels were because of no wide offsets, so thar would be great

yeah, we want +3 and +2 offsets. the rims are very nice. they hug the bearing, and it's light and strong.

any movement on this front Sai? i'd love to run S6 wheels on my R8 but the limitations of +1.5 forces me to go with other wheels. i run S6's on all my other cars though.

I really like the 19mm rim also but they have been hard to find.

yeah, i just bought the last +1.5 front wheel set from RR. i couldn't find any more domestically. :(

Bought the S6 wheels for my Aston: 19mm front / +1 offset, Rear: 20mm / + 1,5 offset. Really a shame that these can't be had in +2 / +2,5 / +3 Rears...

Such a great and beautiful wheel deserves more offset versions in both white and magnificent black ...

I like 20mm much better than 19mm front on our track ... so I took a set of rear +1 S6's and cut down the outer lip to match a narrow front tire. It works perfectly and now I have matching front wheels :)

Good work around but less than ideal. We are hoping atomic decides to expand the line. There is obvious desire for it :)

+1 on the offset options. These have been my "go to" wheels lately but I wish Atomic starts offering greater offset options.
