Why Install Konig Rewind Wheels?

With all the high technology in the automotive world right now, it’s nice to just take a step back and rewind. Which is why old school car projects are a breath of fresh air. Of course, old school cars should roll on old school wheels. This is the reason the Konig Rewind wheel is made.

The Konig Rewind sports an iconic design with eight spokes shaped like bananas. It is lovingly called the banana wheel by some enthusiasts. The Mini Cooper was believed to be the one to wear them first in the sixties. The wheels were then called Miniltes. The design was genius, it saved weight by having cuts behind the spokes so the wheel would look full. Because of this, it was an ideal wheel for racing. Even the Ford Mustang Boss 302 used this wheel in GTAm races.

Why Should I Install Aftermarket Wheels?

  • Aftermarket wheels have 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
  • A bigger wheel allows space for much larger brake rotors and calipers—usually a must when a car is built to race
  • A larger wheel is more attractive in design compared to boring stock wheels

The banana wheel proved so popular that other wheel manufacturers copied it from the RS Watanabe to Enkei’s Compe rendition with ribs. The Konig Rewind is much closer to the RS Watanabe in design in that it has a deep dish look set in a stepped lip rim. But unlike the Watanabe, the Konig Rewind is easier to find. This wheel style is famous for drifters, racers, and automotive connoisseurs alike.
