What Makes the SSR Executor EX01 Special?

The SSR Executor EX01 wheel is a lightweight solid 5-spoke wheel that is equally at home when used on the road. With cars producing more and more power, their goal was to respond to this request for more power and deal with the stress it places on the tire's braking and grip. This 2-piece rim is constructed using the SSF semi-melted face forging method combined with the HTM heat treatment inner rim for the "Super Heat Quantity and High Rigidity" requirements.

SSR's EX01 is a two-piece wheel consisting of an outer rim, an inner rim. That piece is made of a slightly different aluminum alloy to ensure that the strength and lightness are evenly distributed within the wheel. This is what SSR is all about: wheels that look not only good but also about every aspect, but also equally important that this set of high-end race wheels should outperform the competition.

SSR Two-Piece Wheels

The two-piece EX01 features a barrel as one piece and a face as the second piece. The advantage of the 2-piece is SSR's ability to have a variety of offsets that can be calculated in millimeter units. The barrel starts out as a flat piece of circular aluminum which is then sent through a press machine shaping it into a barrel. At this point the material is very dense allowing the barrel to be lightweight and strong. The barrel is then separated into sections to become multiple wheels and is sent to the polishing process. Each separated barrel is then precisely inserted with the completed face of the rim and is welded inside barrel based on the choice of offset.

With weight and high strength in mind, each section of the wheel is engineered using separate grades and thickness of aluminum according to its purpose. SSR’s racing heritage and manufacturing innovations have allowed the creation of EX01 that is both super lightweight and high in strength.

Heat Treatment Manufacture

After the forging or casting process, which depends on the model, once the wheel is fully cooled, it undergoes a heat treatment which makes it even stronger and lighter than it already is. The wheel's inner barrel is then heated a second time as the interior of a wheel is generally where much of the tension happens in just about every driving situation. This heating makes the barrel as light as a feather and capable of withstanding tremendous amounts of energy, even in racing environments.

The SSR EX01 wheels are ready basically for anything. They're made with highly tuned cars and racing in mind. SSR Wheels’ EX01 is a top of the line wheel that will make your ride look amazing, behave more like a race car and give you faith in the part of your car that needs to be the longest lasting. The wheel is also incredibly lightweight to make you blast off the line much faster and smoother.

  • A lighter wheel reduces un-sprung weight, resulting in faster acceleration and significantly improved handling.
