Default Prodrive GC-014i / Volk Progressiv ME

Just a heads up for those looking for a non staggered setup for their AWD, these are a steal!

These are the same as the Volk Progressive ME wheels if they were to sell them under the Volk name. Available in 43 and 22 offsets. I emailed them and they sold out of the 9.5 width for a staggered setup.

Love that wheel design. Very restrictive with the offsets, though.

This is good because Volk discontinued the Progressiv MEs. Do they offer different faces like Volk?

I believe they are very similar but not the exact same design..

think it would be ok to get the 8.5 +22 all around and add a spacer in the back to make them look staggered?

From what i heard, they are the same, just different markings. I could've heard wrong tho.

I think the wheels are similar but if you look closer the valve stem is on a different area than volks. Can anyone confirm they have rays decals on the barrel?

There are 2 versions of the Progressiv ME wheel. The newest version (version 2), does not have any writing on the wheel face. Only between the spokes. Here is a picture for reference (Version 1 = Right, Version 2 = Left). Also, version 2 only came in Formula Silver (gunmetal color) and version 1 comes in Mercury Silver (Silver).

That's a great price for ME replicas. From the photos, it looks like Face 1. I guess you could throw spacers in the rear to give it a staggered set-up with the 19x8.5 +22. Let us know if you do decide to pull the trigger. I'm curious on the quality.

Here are some shots of a TOM's IS350 with the GC-014i (courtesy of Cockpit Toyosu):

Wow, almost the exact same wheel. I wonder if it's a forged wheel. I doubt they're also as light as my authentic ME's.
