The off-roading community in the country continues to grow. As with any other tuning and modding discipline, rig owners have also become more discerning of the parts they want to use. On the subject of wheels, the official dealer of Concept One Wheels in the Philippines, Wheel Gallery, has just brought in another performance-oriented brand into the country: Method Race Wheels.
Off-roaders that did their research will know that Method provided the wheels on the Toyota Gazoo Racing Hilux in the Dakar Rally. Accolades? Method has it all from participating in Off-Road Desert - such as Baja 1000 - and Cross Country rallies like Dakar, and even in Off-Road Ultra 4, winning championships in King of the Hammers. To maintain their winning ways, they have come out with their latest wheel, the MR107 Bead Grip.
Through experience and technological expertise, the MR107 is built to withstand the harshest of conditions and boasts of a load rating of up to 4,000 pounds. The application of their race-proven R&D knowledge separates them from all other wheel companies in the marketplace.
But what really sets this particular set of wheels is Method’s recently patented Bead Grip Technology. In any off-road setting, traction is vital, and Bead Grip holds tires securely in place despite lower tire pressures to gain even more traction. The MR107 gives you that much confidence and at only 10psi and without a mechanical beadlock ring, this technology is the first of its kind in automotive engineering.
Bead Grip’s reduced weight over a traditional beadlock wheel reduces strain on the vehicle drivetrain while simultaneously unleashing more available horsepower to the driver. Bead Grip products by Method Race Wheels are also safe for on-road vehicles, a departure from traditional beadlock wheels, which are off-road use only and require regular maintenance.
“Wheel Gallery has proven to be an automotive aftermarket leader in the Philippines and we are excited to partner with a well-known and established brand to bring our industry-leading products to market. Our commitment to customer experience, product quality, and persistent innovation will be represented well through our new partner,” says Matt Harris, Global Sales Director for Method Race Wheels. “We also look forward to visiting the Philippines soon to explore trails with the off-road community,” he adds.
Performance plays a great part in winning, and those who are dead serious about off-roading are in for a big treat and surprise with Method Race Wheels and the MR107 Bead Grip wheel. Those who want to purchase a set – or two, or three – can walk into Concept One Wheels located at 318 Santolan Road, San Juan, or into any of their Authorized Dealers.
