Sema day four highlights:

Day four was the shortest for me, I regret that I only discovered Toyo Tires awesome treadpass as I was leaving as it may have had the sum total of the coolest metal at the event. Enjoy day four:

Been a long time coming: SEMA 2014

I’ve been out of this site for a long time, but I’m planning to get back into it again. I went to the Sema show and it was an  increbile fulfillment of a childhood dream. I will be back! Here are some highlights of the show.

Inspired examples of OEM wheels on the “wrong” car! v.2:

More examples of OEM wheels on the “wrong” car:

Acura TL wheels on a Honda Accord:

Image

Audi A6 wheels on this MK4 Golf:

Image

Flat orange painted Bentley wheels on a bagged Passat more your style? Image

This oddball shoe shaped car is a Volvo 480, and this rocks a full drivetrain conversion of FWD to RWD with a BMW transmission along with it’s E36 Motorsports wheels!

Image

BMW 5 series wheels suit this Toyota Chaser just right.

Image

BMW Style 5’s on this Triumph TR6 look good!

Image

Another showing by BMW, 7 series staggered 19 inchers filling the fenderwells of this Z33 Nissan:Image

An uncommon car in the stance scene, and it took a lot of work for this one to sit like it does with BMW X5 wheels on this Peugeot 406 coupe.

Image

BMW wheels are a fairly common swap on the Chevy S series trucks, and these M Parallels look pretty good on this lowered example. Image

C4 Corvette wheels on an MK5 Jetta looking good:

Image

C5 “Wagon wheels” are super popular in the Audi/VW stance world thanks to great availability, low price and spacer/adapter friendly high offsets. Double stagger works well on this A4.

Image

Still under construction, Z06 corvette wheels set off this S10.Image

C6 corvette wheels on this black on black Chevy S10 looking good.

Image

Corvette ZR1 wheels on this Oldsmobile grille swapped S10 sitting fat and flush on some wide meats.Image

Widened rear C5 Wagon wheels on this Chevy S10 look good:Image

Mustang Cobra wheels might give away what’s lurnking under the hood: A RWD drivetrain including a supercharged 5.4L Cobra motor:Image

Still tons more to come!

 

Import Alliance Atlanta 4/21/13 v.1: Trucks

Certainly not the expected first post I’m sure, but considering I have a blogger following me called “Truck and Ute”, I figured I’d post some for him! His blog below:

BMW X6M:

Image

Slammed GMC Jimmy on sick wheels:Image

Not the biggest fan of the flares/fenders and bedside on this Datsun 620, but they are pretty well done:

ImageImage

This Datsun 620 has been all over the internet. I should do a post on this thing sometime! It’s got a lot of neat design touches and engineering.Image

Big Ford F-100 lurking:Image

Lifted Ford F-250 cruised around for a while:Image

Should have taken more pics of this lowered CRV on Work Meister reps.Image

Another Honda SUV, the Element, this one was on some clean polished wheels:Image

Big whale of an Infiniti FX45 looking good lowered on some mesh wheels:ImageImageImage

Clean Grand Cherokee SRT8:Image

How about a dirty Toyota Land Cruiser?Image

Toyota Pickup, N50 chassis lowered on Mitsubishi Starion wheels:Image

This clown was trying to do donuts in this litfted Tacoma… open diff plus tall ride height does not a drift make.Image

Totoyta Pickup, N30 generation. This guy has been on Stanceworks with a lot of pics of this truck. I like these trucks a lot. Image

A few more Toyota Pickups, N40 chassis, and check out the turbo setup on the last one!ImageImageImageImage
