September 8, 2022

Is the ESR RF15 A Good Car Wheel?

What's going on everybody? Welcome back to the blog and our reviews series! Today, we're taking a look at a new wheel from ESR's lineup of rotary formed wheels, the ESR RF-15. It's one of the best-looking wheels that we've seen in quite some time, and it's got the kind of lightweight performance that any driver will be sure to love for their builds. So, let's not waste any time - let's jump right in and see what the RF-15 has in store!

Design Features and Construction of the ESR RF15

Good God, does the ESR RF-15 look great. We're already suckers for a nice, clean, split five-spoke wheel, but the concavity on this thing really just makes it that much better. You're also gonna notice a lot of other details around this wheel that are both aesthetically pleasing and help reduce its overall weight - this can be seen in the milling around the lug holes in the front, and on the spokes themselves, and also on the pocketing on the back pad. Also, we're really big fans of how ESR recessed the step lip as well, to give it that sort of floating spoke look to maximize the look and depth of this wheel.

ESR RF15 Weight Rating and Pricing Specifics

With the RF15 being rotary formed, you're not gonna get all that added weight on a design like this. It's an 18x10.5 +22, and weighs on our scale at 22.5 pounds - that's pretty wild for a size like this and its big concavity.

Of course, you might be thinking "That's pretty cool, but I bet it must be a really expensive wheel." though, depending on what your definition of "expensive" is, you'd be wrong. The coolest part of rotary forming is that it doesn't cost that much more than a cast wheel to produce, and the savings are gonna get passed on to you, the consumer. In fact, a set of four 18x10.5 wheels will only set you back about $1080. For four of the 18x8.5 wheels, you're looking at $1030, and the largest RF15 size (20x10.15) is still under $1300. Plus, if you package these bad boys together with a set of tires, you'll save even more money because we'll mount, balance, and ship them to you for free.
