# Enkei Apache I (4H)

The Enkei Apache line launched in late 1978 with the first version having sharp flat spokes and a very “square” appearance.  The center cap even had four flat sides, although the five-hole (and five-spoke) version of the wheel got a conventional round center cap.  Early center caps simply said “Enkei”, while later ones used the image of a traditionally dressed Native-American man. Advertisements for the wheel used the same imagery and talked about rebels and war.

Aside from center caps, the Apache I is fairly void of detail.  Sizes ran up to 8J though, and weights were quite competitive with 14 6J sizes being under 5.5kg.  The wheel is not widely loved however, perhaps due to its somewhat ungainly appearance, and often sells for quite reasonable prices relative to comparable wheels.
