Each wheel at Desmond starts as a solid piece of 6061Aluminum. The forging process begins as the piece is compressed at 8,000 tons of pressure which develops the basic shape of the wheel. From there each wheel is machined to our precise specs and tolerances, thereby creating a true masterpiece.
When designing a high-performance wheel such as the Regamaster Evo II it is important to be lightweight as well as strong. Each wheel is designed first for strength and second for light weight. This results in each wheel size being as strong and lightweight as possible for motorsports use.
Designing a wheel that looks amazing is a challenge. Desmond set out develop wheels that are superior in design, strength, light weight and rigidity. The result is a truly balanced wheel designed for motorsports use that is equally capable of looking great on a street car.
MADE IN JAPAN
All wheels made in Japan by Taneisya. Taneisya has a strong motorsports wheel manufacturing background and has supplied Formula One wheels since 1993.
Following a classic design Desmond wanted to maintain the look and style of the original Regamaster EVO wheels while using the technology available today to provide larger sizes, lower offsets, lighter weights, strength and rigidity. The all new Regamaster Evo II wheels follow the classic lines while providing you a modern wheel. A true remix on a classic that’s exceeds expectations.
BIG BRAKE FITMENT
In todays market big brakes are the standard. As OEM manufactures produce more cars with large brakes it is necessary to produce wheels for big brake fitment. When used in motorsports it is necessary to upgrade to a high performance braking system. Each Regamaster Evo II wheel is designed with this in mind from the very beginning.
KNURLED BEAD SEAT
In order to prevent tire slippage, (the tire rotating on the rim) each Regamaster Evo II rim is knurled. This knurling of the tire bead seat improves the contact patch between the tire and the rim.
