One of our good clients brought in his new BMW 428i Convertible that he wanted us to personalize to his liking. We began by tinting all the windows and then lowering the vehicles ride height by installing a set of H&R lowering springs. We then continued by installing a set of Vorsteiner VFF101 Flow Forged wheels for a good compromise between aesthetics and overall performance. We also added a factory M Performance front kidney grilles, carbon mirrors, carbon front spoiler, remus quad exhaust system with black tips and a custom carbon fiber rear diffuser. To fiinish this complete transformation, we swapped out all interior trim including the shifter to the upgraded factory M Performance carbon fiber pieces.

  • WHEELS : Vorsteiner VFF101 Flow Forged | 19×8.5 front and 19×10 rear
  • FINISH : Textured Black
  • TIRES : Yokoham Advan Sport A/S | 225/40R19 front and 255/35R19 rear

  • EXTERIOR : Factory M Performance black kidney grilles, carbon mirrors, carbon front spoiler and side skirt decals. Remus quad exhaust system with black tips. Custom Carbon rear diffuser. Color matched reflectors.

New Toyota Tundra lifted 8.5″ with BDS, Fox, Icon, Total Chaos and Fuel wheels with 37″ tires

Here is a brand new Toyota Tundra that we just completed a long list of upgrades on. This vehicle was brought in to us in 100% original condition and it turned into what you see here. The first set of modifications in order was to completely upgrade the suspension. We started by installing a BDS Suspension system that was originally designed to be set at a 7″ lift. During this same installation we decided to upgrade the factory front struts with a pair of Fox 2.5″ coil-over remote reservoir shocks up front combined with matching rear shocks and a pair of fully adjustable Total Chaos Heim Joint Pivot Uniball upper control arms for added strength, maximum wheel travel and maximum tuning of caster and camber. Once we spent a little time adjusting these components, we set the vehicles ride height at about 8.5 inches of lift over stock. Inorder to get the rear of this truck to match of with the fronts new height, BDS components were combined with Ekstrom Design – Coachbuilder +3 billet shackles and an Icon Vehicle Dynamics rear leaf spring expansion pack. The final result of this suspension setup we used is that the rear of this truck has a slight rake towards the front, tighter steering feel and better handling verus stock. For the wheels and tires, we went with a set of 22″ Fuel Maverick 2-piece wheels with the all new Fuel Mud Gripper MT tires. This wheel and tire setup consist of ultra wide 22×12 wheels wrapped in 37×13.50R22 tires. To complete this build, we installed a set of AMP Research power retractable side steps and a BakFlip G2 tri fold hard bed cover.

Our friends Lexus LS460 we hooked up with 21″ Niche Essen wheels

One of our good friends brought us their new Lexus LS460 they just purchased for a wheel upgrade. We decided that the best compromise between looks and comfort would be to find a good looking, dependable but still affordable 21″ wheel and tire option. For those of you whom dont already know, 21″ wheels and tires are very uncommon in todays market, let alone finding something budget friendly. The solution that we came up with was the Niche Essen M146 in a classy Silver Machined finish. Since this car had already came factory equipped with the Lexus Sports Package that included more aggressive exterior styling features, we decided that a staggered setup was the best fit. This setup consisted of 21×9 wheels with 245/35/21 tires up front and 21×10.5 wheels with 285/30/21 tires on the rear. This offered the vehicle a more aggressive stance that pushed the wheels and tires out more flush with the fenders without any rubbing or contacting. We also plan on lowering this vehicle for an even more aggressive stance in the very near future.  Whether you are in the market for a simple wheel or tire upgrade, performance upgrade or exterior styling modifications, give us a call.

Your looking at a new Infiniti Q50s that we just wrapped up for one of our clients whom wanted to improve on both cosmetics and overall performance of their vehicle. First up was a larger and more aggressive wheel and tire setup that would improve both the overall appearance while still being able to perform. For this, we decided to go with the new flow formed Vossen VFS-1 Concave wheel in a staggered 20″ setup. The flow forming process maintains the integrity of the design, while also improving the grain-structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger, lighter, and considerably thinner forged-like rim barrel. This vehicle is running 20×9 front and 20×10.5 rear wheels wrapped in 245/35ZR20 and 275/30ZR20 tires. Continuing on the exterior, we went ahead and installed the new Stillen front splitter which greatly improves the appearance of the front end while providing additional protection for the lower portion of the front bumper. Continuing with the Stillen theme, we went with their Generation 2 CARB legal cold air intake system and stainless steel catback exhaust setup. We still have plans for more modifications on this vehicle in the near future. We will keep you updated on once additional components are added to this already awesome vehicle. Please view the current Vossen wheel collection at http://www.vossenwheels.com and call us for the best deals in the Bay Area. We have been an authorized Vossen Wheels dealer for years and are able to offer our clients aggressive prices combined with fast delivery dates and years of customer support.
