This week we had the pleasure of having Tamson’ Scion FR-S 10-Series in the shop to be fitted with a particularly sick set of JDM wheels for FR-S – a set of WedSport TC105N Wheels for FR-S, and not just any Wedsport Wheels, but these are a special edition Hyper Silver variant (17×9 ET35) in a nice square fitment special-ordered by new Mod Expert Isaac.
Of course, wheels are nothing without the right tires, and most people buying a set of Wedsports are serious about their handling performance, so a grippy performance tire is critical, which is why Isaac set Tamson up with a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires in a 225/45-17 square fitment.
Tamson’s 2013 10-Series sports quite a few exterior upgrades for FR-S – up front we can see the Downforce USA Carbon Fiber Front Lip and TRD Carbon Fiber Front Fender Fins for FR-S.
The car does ride a bit lower than stock, sitting on a set of TRD Sport Springs, lowering the FR-S suspension, and no spring set is complete without shocks to match, and Tamson got a set of Bilstein B6 Dampers to dial in the ride.
Tamson’s FR-S lighting has also been upgraded with a set of Winjet LED DRL Projector Headlights for Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ, giving the car’s face a bit more aggression as well as a higher-end look than the stock headlights.
The look of the car somehow manages to be both aggressive, but also like a factory package all at the same time, managing to pull off the look the car should’ve had off the showroom floor.
Here’s the side profile of the car, giving you a better idea of how the TRD Springs sit and how the wheels look, and from this angle you can just make out the Beatsonic Sharkfin Antenna for Scion FR-S, eliminating the factory antenna to prevent the “RC Car” look the factory antenna creates.
From this angle, you can appreciate the contour and detail of the TRD Fender Spoilers.
The sound of the car is just as important as its performance, and beefing up both, the car sports a Greddy SP Elite Cat-Back Exhaust for Scion FR-S, giving the boxer four a bit more burble.
Featuring handsome 115mm tips, the Greddy SP Elite Cat-Back Exhaust for Scion FR-S is good for a decent-for-an-exhaust-system gain of 6whp/7.5wtq – which isn’t earth shattering, but a healthy number to expect from a catback on any FA20. Under the hood, a simple High Flow K&N Air Filter For Scion FR-S helps the FA20 breathe a bit easier for slightly snappier response.
We really enjoyed having this FR-S in the shop and we hope you enjoyed the photos as much as we did – Tamson certainly seemed thrilled with the finished look and our team of Mod Experts agreed- the setup Isaac helped spec out looked awesome on the FR-S.
That’s it for this time, though Tamson tells us future plans for the car include switching out the TRD Springs for a set of adjustable coilovers to dial in a little more of a drop and more camber up front in the FR-S Suspension, upgraded brakes and set of wider tires when the Michelin Pilot Super Sports wear down- which sounds like a great plan to us.
