Takeshi Tanaka founded the company in 1977 in Japan with a modest capital. Over the many years of successful years in business, WORK Wheels are now a household name, being known for style, safety and quality.
WORK Wheels are one of Japan’s premiere manufacturers of high quality automotive performance wheels. The manufacturing process of their 1, 2 and 3-piece wheels are completed to the highest safety standards with multiple testing during the manufacturing process to ensure the wheels are true and meet the high standards expected from WORK Wheels.
WORK tailor make your wheels to order in Japan to your exact specification. So you get YOUR wheels to fit YOUR car, YOUR style, YOUR fitment. Why settle for mass produced fast food hamburger when you can order your favourite cut of steak, cooked exactly as you like it?
WORK focuses heavily on the technology used in rim forming, the rim barrel in a WORK wheel is what sets the alloys apart from the competition.
The rim barrel is the part of the wheel that takes most of the load of the vehicle. WORK Wheels is one of the only companies in the world that has developed and used a ‘Solid Rim Flange’ which provides the strength.
Whilst most companies boast about being ‘forged’, that process only applies to the center of the wheel. Having a forged center disk with spun rim barrels doesn’t make much difference in the strength. The solid rim flange and a thicker barrel on WORK Wheels give them the strength advantage over other wheels on the market.
WORK Wheels are distributed in the United Kingdom by Driftworks Ltd.
