Melber Giugiaro Scacchiera SFF

The Scacchiera wheel debuted in 1976 at the Torino Motor Show, on the Karmann Asso Di Quadri concept from Italian designer Giugiaro.  The Asso Di Quadri never turned into reality, but the wheel went into production through the power of the Japanese Wheel League and the Melber brand.

Produced by the Easy Riders Corporation, the Scacchiera came in two models: SFF with a high offset, and SRG with a lower, more RWD friendly offset.  The SFF gets a much cooler look with bent spokes and a negative dish effect.  Diameters were 13″ only.  The colors gold and black were reportedly available, although we’ve never observed gold.

One of Giugiaro’s objectives was to disguise the wheel mounting bolt holes within the checkerboard pattern.  This proved challenging when the wheel was made to suit a variety of 4H PCD’s.  The Scaccheira II would use a full cover center cap to meet Giugiaro’s design goals.
