This Datsun s30 240Z is owned by Mr. Vengeance of GarageZero, Atlanta GA. It is lowered accordingly to the “Shakotan” style,
has a fresh set of wheels, and some hints of Bozo with the front external mount oil cooler and upswept exhaust pipes. The
SSR MK III wheels he has sourced look to be sized perfect, and his custom suspension set up sounds very interesting!

Enkei RPF1 + Ford Maverick = JDMUSDM?

FORD MAVERICK on ENKEI RPF1
When I think of a Ford Maverick, I think of the 70’s compact car that sort of looked like a big Ford Pinto. I used to see them around when I was a kid, but now they are nearly extinct in my area. Add some lowering and some Japanese Road Wheels [ Enkei RPF1 ], and a total transformation has occured. – Enkei RPF1 on Ford Maverick

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
