The Last Wheels You'll Ever Need


Tommi Makinen Endorses BRAID Wheels

August 20-22 2010


l'm back home from the SCCA RallyCross National Championship with a trophy in hand! Racing was intense from the start! Racing my 2002 Subaru Wrx in the Prepared All class from the start of compition I was swapping first and second place with another Suby all day long. We had a total of 7 runs on Saturday. Going into Sunday with a lead of just half a second I knew I had to be on top of my game with only having 2 runs left Sunday morning for the championship title. My first run the second place car ran almost half a second faster, so down to the last run I had to give it my all and really push. My last run I pulled it off by about a second from the second place car taking home the title by only .3 sec. I knew tire/wheel combos had to be the best the whole weekend, I can't say enough about Braid Competition wheels and BFG G-Force rally tires! Braid wheels are strong, light, and of course visually appealing, I knew I wouldn't have any problems in the wheel dept. Thank you Paul/ Team Illuminata for the support! You can count on another Purchase of a spare set of Braid Competition wheels when the time comes!

How’s it going? I just wanted to let you know that I am totally impressed at the strength of the Braid wheels. I unfortunately found this out the hard way during STPR rally. We went wide in a corner striking a dirt embankment which sent us into a spin. It was during the spin that we then struck a tree stump resulting in a rollover. This completely destroyed the control arm, broke the sway bar, snapped the tie rod in half and left half the tree stuck in the rim. The best part of this is the tire never went flat and the rim didn’t even crack. Cline Rally Sport will be buying nothing but Braid wheels from now on.

Thanks again.
