ESM offers more than 40 years of experience and expertise in the wheel manufacturing field. The designs and construction ESM uses are the result of more than four decades of experience in the automotive wheel industry. This experience has led them to designing the 009R.
The ESM 009R is a classic design with fat 5-spokes that are bold and elegant at the same time. Studs that surround the rim and a deep dish face which creates a 3-piece wheel illusion which adds to the wheel’s street cred.
ESM Wheels started from a company called DTM Fiberwerkz, which specialized in BMW fiberglass and expanded to wheels. It is only fitting that these wheels have an old-school, German-esque style. This wheel sports a deep-dish stepped lip that encloses a mesh pattern design with various rivets that are encircling the inner lip area giving this a three piece feel.
Every design in the ESM Wheels line boasts premium material quality and a high level of craftsmanship. They are the result of an exclusive blend of American boldness in design, a legacy of manufacturing excellence, and classic Germanic designs. All these attributes are combined and infused in each wheel ESM makes and the results are truly amazing.
The reason to want to move from stock to aftermarket wheels is mainly because of style. An aftermarket wheel has been engineered to be lightweight, which is why these see the primary use in motorsports. A lighter wheel reduces un-sprung weight, resulting in faster acceleration and significantly improved handling. And since the DR-33 is cast as a one-piece alloy wheel, it will definitely be lighter even at a size a tad bigger than stock.
That will bring us to our next point: size. Size is also a factor. A bigger wheel allows space for much larger brake rotors and calipers—usually a must when a car is built to race. An offshoot of this size increase is the use of low-profile rubber which has less sidewall flex—another performance benefit when driving on the track.
The ESM 009R wheels are designed and developed to JWL and VIA standards. They are built to exceed each essential requirement in the automotive industry – a testament to their toughness and top-notch quality. These wheels undergo thorough tests and inspections for the quality of casting, finishing, and machining.
The ESM 009R is only available in Silver or White. The available sizes are 16x8 and 16x9 which is perfect for old European compact cars like the E30 BMW 3-series, Mark III Volkswagen Golf, and Alfa Romeo Milano.
