Introducing the new Work CR Kiwami (Ultimate) for 2011 Lineup
This being Jordan Innovations very first wheel thread I wanted to introduce a new WORK Wheels to my fellow Zilvians. This is a Pre-Order lasting until 10 sets and so get on the ball everyone.
Everyone loves the look of the CR Kai, I know I do and I've always wanted it to be in a 18x10.5 so I could fit more tire width and now WORK has taken notice of the demand and a 18x10.5 +23 sizing is available.
The all new CR Kiwami (Ultimate) is the latest in the WORK Wheels lineup. A look based upon the timeless classic CR Kai wheel, but now completely advanced utilizing the WORK Freeflowing Technology (WFT) process resulting in a lighter and stronger wheel.
Available in the following colors:
Matte Bronze (AHG)
Matte Black (MBL)
GT Silver (GTS)
Work Metal Buff (WMB)
Current sizes available for pre-order are:
Also for a limited time only, order any WORK Emotions series wheels including the new CR Kiwami and receive a set of WORK lug nuts for free (a $120 value) (Colors available: Red, Blue, and Black)
PM me now with your wheel sizing/color, contact number and your zip code for a shipped quote.

All the buzz i've seen about these wheels says that they are lighter due to new technologies...by any chance do you have a weight chart or even numbers comparing them to the old CR Kais? i'd love to see a comparison.

It's the new casting process that makes these so much more boss, and the bigger sizes. I can't believe how popular they are, keep the PM's coming!

Here is a comparison from Work Wheels USA's website between the old CR Kai and the new CR Kiwami (Ultimate)
Recently WORK Wheels released their latest addition to the Emotion series, the WORK Emotion CR Ultimate (known as the CR "Kiwami" in Japan). The CR Ultimate is a redesigned wheel, pulling inspiration from its predecessor. The two wheels may appear similar in general look, but upon further inspection there are a host of upgrades.
On the left is the WORK Emotion CR Kai and on the right is the WORK Emotion CR Ultimate. The CR Ultimate now has an available centercap (in low type and flat type). Unfortunately this centercap will not fit in the CR Kai, as the CR Kai was produced to not accept a centercap.
Due to its new release, the CR Ultimate is able to benefit from the latest in WORK Wheels manufacturing capabilities. The CR Ultimate uses a new process called WORK Flowforming Technology (WFT). This treatment allows WORK to reduce the barrel thickness without compromising strength and integrity of the barrel. As a result, the CR Ultimate is on average ~2 lbs. lighter versus the CR Kai.
While both wheels shown are called "Matte Bronze," they are actually two different paint codes. The CR Kai (left) is the Matte Bronze (MHG) finish, while the CR Ultimate (right) is Matte Bronze (AHG) finish. In addition, this shot shows the increased spoke edging of the CR Ultimate vs. the CR Kai.
One fine detail is the CR Ultimate has raised lettering on the face of the wheel. Besides the "WORK Emotion" shown in the top right, the CR Ultimate also proudly sports "Made in Japan" raised lettering on another portion of the face (not shown).
This side shot gives a good comparison between the increased concave face of the CR Ultimate. As shown, the lug area of the CR Ultimate sits lower than the CR Kai, resulting in an aggressively curved spoke. The CR Ultimate comes in Flat Face, Semi Concave Face, and Deep Concave face. The face is dependant upon the sizing chosen, please refer to the sizing chart here for more details. Please again note that the wheels shown in these images are 18x9.5 (Deep Concave).
We hope that this article has helped to see the upgrades that WORK Wheels has done to provide the latest and most advanced product.
