Brabus Monoblock III + Lexus LS400 – An Unlikely Combination

Brabus Monoblock III on Lexus LS400
Brabus is a company known for producing top notch Mercedes Products, notably some really nice wheels. The Brabus
Monoblock III was and still is one of the nicest wheels produced by Brabus; they were and still are a wheel that is hard to get. – Brabus Monoblock III on Lexus LS400

This set of 20″ Monoblock III’s made their way on to this 1996 Lexus LS400, an unlikely combination. The wheels
had to be persuaded to fit on the LS by way of re-drilling and adding spacers . – Brabus Monoblock III on Lexus LS400

Akebono USDM EF Civic on Work Ewing – A Modern Classic

They say pictures are worth a thousand words. When I first came across pictures of this car I could only come up with 2 words: Clean & Simple. This EF civic is from the JDM motherland AKA Japan. It used to rock CST Demon Cambers, and it already looked really good, but these Work Ewing Mesh really set this car off!. I always think Chrome wheels look best on black cars, and this is proof.

 

Those Ewings are clean, look at the detail on these wheels: chrome with black windows accentuated with gold caps and bolts. This picture was actually the wallpaper on my desktop gor a year!

“The wheels are E-Wing Mesh 15×7 (10) all around with 10mm spacers up front and 15mm spacers in the back. Tires are 165/45R15 & 175/45R15 in the back. If it was up to us we would run an inch wider in the back though but it’s sexy regardless, don’t you think so?”
– Stancenation.com

 


Ride height is perfect, brought down with a set of Cusco Coilovers. Can’t stop looking at those wheels.

 

On the street, I don’t know hats up with the mask though haha.

 

This car with its timeless looks will always be a classic… Bye Bye!

 

Specs
Wheels: Work E-Wing Mesh 15×7 +10
Tires: 165/45R15 & front 175/45R15 rear
Spacers: 10mm front & 15mm rear
Suspension: Cusco Coilover
Other: Custom Front Lip

BMW E30 M3 + SSR Formula Mesh = FPURISTS

SSR Formula Mesh BMW E30 M3
BMW E30 M3 ON SSR Formula Mesh

Iconic car… Check
Iconic Wheels… Check
Rare Evo parts.. Check
Fat Lips… Check

Say what you want, but this car is hot! Due to it’s “Stance”, this car has caused some mixed heat on some internet forums. Obviously
this car is not daily driven, but it just looks right. Not only is the car built, but the owner also took his time and built the wheels.

“So I am sure most of you have seen these. I spent nearly a year buying parts/pieces/wheels to make the set you see here. They
are the ONLY set I have ever seen on a BMW with a 5×120 bolt pattern, let alone with stepped lips ”
– internet user “KarlSpackler”

SSR Formula Mesh BMW E30 M3

Front wheel profile, note how close the front lip
is to the ground.

SSR Formula Mesh BMW E30 M3

Rear wheel profile, thats almost 5 inches of lip…
Wow!

I do agree with the owner, not only do you 17″ SSR Formula Mesh barrels, but you hardly see 9 or 10 inch wide Formula Mesh Barrels
as well.  This car has the perfect blend of Euro and JDM.

Wheel Specs:
SSR Formula Mesh – Stepped Lips
17×9 +10 ~ 3.5″ lip
17×10 +0 ~ 4.75″ lip
5×120
72.56 center bore
White powdercoated faces
Black Anodized Hardware

Tires Specs:
215/35 Falken 452s front
225/35 Yoko S.Drives rear

 

I’m not sure if this car had a full feature anywhere, but if it does please let me know so I can add it here.

Friends Rides – Soaring Happi Lexus SC300 on Work VS-XX

Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19" Work VS-XX
In japan the SC300 as we know it is referred to as the “Soarer”. I’m guessing it means to soar, or fly, smoothly like a bird. This
Soarer is owned and built by my good friend Mistahappi. I’ve known MH for a while now and he is one smooth and happy guy
if I’ve ever met one. – Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19″ Work VS-XX
Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19" Work VS-XX
MH started out with a mint and rare 5 speed Lexus SC300. 5 speed SC300 are very hard to come by, I know he waited a while
to pounce on the right specimen. He soon after purchased a Auto Couture body kit, 19″ Work VS-XX wheels, and brought the
car down with a Universal Air, air bag system. – Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19″ Work VS-XX
Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19" Work VS-XX
Let me tell you, I have ridden in this car, it is smooth and it attracts attention. You might
think low profile tires and bags would provide a suspect ride, but like I said, this car is
smooth! This car may not have many mods, but it has the right combination of parts to
be daily driven, and to turn heads. – Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19″ Work VS-XX

BBS RS Porsche 911 Cabriolet on Barrett Jackson Auctions

Porsche 911 on BBS RS

I was watching a replay of the Barret Jackson Auction Scottsdale 2011 on Speed Channel the other day and spotted this 1985 Porsche 911 wearing a nice set of one of our favorite wheels:  the BBS RS. This spiecimen of RS appears to be of the 16″ variety, and color coded to the Porsche’s hue of red. They also sport full height caps and look to be at around 10″ wide in the rear. This Porsche sports a Slant Nose front end and isn’t bad either. – BBS RS Porsche 911 Cabriolet on Barrett Jackson Auctions

The Porsche ended up selling for almost $35k

Adam Carolla Camel GT Datsun 280z s30

What a beautifully restored s30

 

“Scattered throughout the room, bathed in natural light from large windows, we found a Datsun Camel GT pace car built by Bob Sharp parked next to a Paul Newman / Bob Sharp Racing IMSA 300ZX. A few feet away, sitting next to the tool cabinets with its rear wheels riding on rollers to ease movement around the shop, was a custom Datsun Roadster 1600 racer with radically-flared fenders in bright orange. (Adam hasn’t raced each of these, and he may never, but he currently participates in his share of on-track competitions in his stunning Bob Sharp Datsun 610.)”
