As power levels continue to grow at an unbelievable rate with the R35 platform, the need for a better front wheel/tire package has become increasingly important. The ability to run a 17-inch front slick on the R35 takes some work and we were not willing to cut any corners in offering a complete bolt-on kit. T1 and WP Pro Brakes teamed up to design hands down the best small front brake kit available.
Stability and traction are increased significantly by switching to a front slick compared to having a drag/street radial up front and a slick on the rear. While this may seem counterproductive, combining a front radial and a bias-ply rear is actually very sketchy. Slicks on the front will greatly improve the steering sensitivity and stability.
Wheels come in either the standard finish (black face and center, polished barrel), powdercoated barrel, or completely custom powdercoated. If you are wanting your wheels powdercoated, give us a call and we can help you pick out the perfect color, check out our SAMPLES PAGE for some ideas!
A set of titanium lug bolts and wheel hardware comes at no additional charge with each wheel, or you can upgrade to a set of black anodized lug bolts and wheel hardware for an additional fee.

The standard finish on wheels is a polished barrel, black face with machined pockets, and black bead lock with machined pockets. Any powdercoating finish is available as an upgrade. Titanium hardware is used throughout the wheels and a set of titanium lug nuts is also included.
Before taking on this project we needed to ensure that there would be no significant loss in braking power. The smaller brakes still needed to be able to safely stop the car, regardless of the car being equipped with a parachute. WP Pro Brakes designed a great kit utilizing a 345mm diameter rotor (standard material is steel, carbon is an option), that is still 30mm wide (same as stock), along with a 6 piston caliper that all bolts directly up to the stock hub with no modification.
With the brakes squared away we were now able to focus our attention on the 17-inch front wheels. Having worked with Belak Industries extensively in the past with the 15-inch rear wheels, we decided to have a matching set made for the front. The new 17x10 front wheel with a single beadlock seen in the pictures fits perfectly and requires no modification to the stock fenders with a 28x10 slick.
With all of our custom BelaK wheel options, you have the ability to customize the finish of nearly every component with any number of powdercoating options. Your imagination is truly the only limiting factor in what can be done. If the standard black/polished finish isn't what you are after you can coat the entire center in one color, or two-tone and have custom colors on the face and in the pockets.
Like the centers, the beadlock rings can be left in the standard black/polished finish, a solid color of your choice, or custom two-tone with colors on the face and the pockets.
The barrels can be left in the standard polished finish or coated in any single color of your choosing.
Installed plenty of these over the years. Fantastic product as usual from T1
