Desmond wheels have decided to bring back arguably one of the most iconic wheels in the import car scene.
First, Spoon brought back the SW388 and now it looks like Desmond is ready to cash in on the nostalgia as well. According to Desmond Wheels off of their official website, they’re bringing back the Desmond Regamaster Evo II wheel. Initially, their website is accepting pre-orders for 18-inch wheels but according to ICB Matt off of Instagram and some people I’ve been interacting with online, at the very least, 15″, 16″, and 17″ wheels will be available as well.
Although this information has been known for a couple of weeks now, ICB Motorsports went ahead and threw on a pre-production set on a brand new Honda Civic Type R and debuted that setup at the annual Eibach Meet in Southern California. Check out that car below! It looks so good!
There’s also a red Honda Civic Type R rocking the pre-production wheels and it one things for sure, these 18″ wheels looks WAY better than the stock 20″ wheels.

If you’d like to inquire about other sizes and offsets ahead of time and live in the United States, go ahead and e-mail ICB Motorsports at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re wondering about center caps, although I haven’t come across official information that they’ll also include center caps, since they were optional before I can’t imagine they wouldn’t offer them as optional this time around as well.
Not only did Desmond drop a couple of widths and offsets for 18″ wheels, they also dropped some technical information about the wheels themselves.
