Rare and magnificent, the S2000 CR ranks high on every Honda enthusiast’s wish list. Equipped with an OEM hardtop, larger rear wing and front splitter (to improve downforce), a quicker steering rack and stiffer suspension, you no longer have the standard S2K but a step up. But to possess one of 159 Rio Yellow Pearl examples means you have a true gem. Tyler Brian Jewart is the proud owner of this S2000 CR, MOMO-equipped with our signature Heritage 6 wheels, no better pairing of Honda’s roadsters with our classic wheel designs.
The Heritage 6 is blends MOMO’s racing heritage into the modern day, featuring a six-spoke design that takes us back to the original MOMO racing alloys that revolutionized the motorsport industry in the ‘70s. Using our revolutionary rotary formed construction technology, we’re able to produce a wheel that’s strong and lightweight.
While offered standard in satin black or satin bronze in 17” and 18” diameters, the Heritage 6 can be also custom made to order; simply choose your 5-lug bolt pattern, offset, backspace and any of MOMO’s nine custom color options.
Let’s get to know more about Tyler and his obsession with the S2000:
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
My name is Tyler Brian Jewart, and I’m originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but currently live in Atlanta, Georgia. I’m a professional singer/songwriter, actor, and Twitch streamer.
What attracted you to the S2000, the CR in particular? Are you a long-time Honda enthusiast?
My first car was a used, silver ‘01 S2000 AP1, and despite all of its wear and tear, it was one of the best cars I’ve ever driven. It birthed my love for the S2K, so you can imagine how much I loved the ultimate version: the Club Racer. I’m a sucker for rarities, so knowing there are only 699 CRs in existence and only 159 of them being yellow (my favorite color), it instantaneously became my dream car. I’ve been a Honda/JDM enthusiast since 2009.
Aside from the Heritage 6 wheels, what other mods have you done so far?
I haven’t done any other mods besides these gorgeous wheels. I’m adamant about keeping the CR stock, at least for now, to preserve such a wonderful platform and formula for enjoyment.
What do you like most about owning a S2K?
I think it has the most “smiles per mile” of any vehicle, a tried-and-true formula of a rear-wheel drive vehicle that’s manual, lightweight, and will forever be the most fun combination of characteristics a car can offer. The S2000’s tight, functional, reliable, and drop-dead beautiful. Its aggressive stance never fails to make me do a double-take, and it handles like a dream. It’s the perfect driver’s car.
Anything else you’d like to add?
I decided that life’s way too short to be waiting on accomplishing goals, so when the opportunity popped up to obtain my dream car, I didn’t hesitate to go for it. I haven’t regretted it one second, and I’ve loved my daily driver more and more each day. I’ve met so many wonderful S2K owners and other JDM enthusiasts, and have really been able to embrace my biggest passion: being part of the car world.
