Wheel Gallery Inc., the industry expert for off-road wheels and tires, has been named as the official distributor of Method Race Wheels® in the Philippines.
To kick-off the launch of Method Race Wheels, Wheel Gallery will be the first distributor to have the MR107 Bead Grip® wheel available to the public. This is the same wheel used on the factory Toyota Gazoo Racing Hilux in the Dakar Rally. The wheel is a culmination of Method’s years of off-road racing experience and technological expertise to be able to withstand the harshest conditions while boasting a load rating of up to 4,000 lbs.
Method Race Wheels® design, engineer and develop high performance wheels for the most demanding off-road races in the world. Some of the notable wins using Method Race Wheels® include the Dakar Rally, Baja 1000 and King of the Hammers. Method Race Wheels® leadership actively participates in off-road racing events while working with some of the best motorsports teams and drivers in the world to push the limits of their products. The application of their race-proven R&D knowledge separates them from all other wheel companies in the marketplace. The motto of Method Race Wheels is embodied in each product they develop, for racing or everyday use, Lighter. Stronger. Faster®.
“Wheel Gallery has proven to be an automotive aftermarket leader in the Philippines and we are excited to partner with a well-known and established brand to bring our industry-leading products to market. Our commitment to customer experience, product quality, and persistent innovation will be represented well through our new partner,” says Matt Harris, Global Sales Director for Method Race Wheels. “We also look forward to visiting the Philippines soon to explore trails with the off-road community,” he adds.
Innovation is one of the driving forces behind Method Race Wheels® and their latest breakthrough can be found in their recently patented Bead Grip® Technology. This technology was developed from the demands of off-road racing to hold tires securely in place despite requiring lower tire pressure for the gain of additional traction. Method Race Wheels® with Bead Grip® has been tested to hold tires securely in place with as little as 10 psi all without the use of a mechanical beadlock ring, a first in automotive wheel engineering. Bead Grip’s reduced weight over a traditional beadlock wheel allows for less strain on vehicle drivetrain while simultaneously unleashing more available horsepower to the driver. Bead Grip® products by Method Race Wheels® are also safe for on-road vehicles, a departure from traditional beadlock wheels which are off-road use only and require regular maintenance.
Method Race Wheels® will be available at Concept One Wheels located at 318 Santolan Road, San Juan, and their authorized dealers.
