Thinker 1

Perhaps a bit weird, and definitely mysterious.  The Thinker 1 wheel by Motorlife Systems is a wheel that we’ve never observed outside of catalogs.  The flat faced design only accommodates one size: 14 6J 35, and we are guessing that the star-shaped design on the face is a one-piece cap/cover that hides the wheel mounting nuts.

The Catalog description translates to…

We want to highlight that this is the world’s first mass-produced fully flat surface wheel, made exclusively for the newly styled Honda.

At 38000円, the price when new was quite high, even relative to modular wheels from premium brands.  We probably shouldn’t be too surprised that the wheel is extinct now 30 years later.
