Default Desmond Regamaster Evo is back...

ICB will unveil the Evo II wheel this Sunday at Eibach. Spoon will also be there with their new SW388. It’ll be nice to compare the sizes offered, prices and the designs as I do NOT believe the Evo II and SW388 are the same wheel this time! I think they're being manufactured completely separate from each other.

The SW388 obviously has it’s changes in design supposedly due to better brake clearance and the Evo II seems to be pretty faithful to the old Russian made versions. More info to come this weekend!

Official Website: Desmond Wheels – Desmond Regamaster Wheels

Preorders were being accepted for the sizes listed on the table stand. I believe 18” and 19” applications will be available first. 17” will come out later. Replacement stickers were also available!! Great news for those guys with older sets. Very reasonable prices.


Some other info:

Manufacturer: Taneisya (#2 forging wheel company in Japan, 2nd to Rays).
Designed by the original designer of the Regamaster Evo.
Taneisya is manufacturing the new Spoon SW388 as well, however designs for EVOII and the new SW388 were done independently of each other which is why they have obvious differences in face shape.
Colors available: ICB debuted silver and white on two FK8 CTRs and said Almighty Grey *may* be available eventually if they can get the color match right.


ICB did an excellent job bringing these back to market. They look amazing in person!

Man I like both of these. Fingers crossed they come in a 17x10 option.

Oh don't worry, they won't leave that market untapped. I have a DC2 so i'm interested in 4x100 as well. 16" should be in the works, but will be even further out..
