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:

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

Up on 3’s, v.2:

 

 

Click here for post 1:

Chevy Camaro drifting! That’s some stiff suspension!Image

Ford Escort Cosworth, getting it done on the track:Image

Ford RS200, not even caring that it’s missing the right rear tire.Image

GE8 Honda Fit letting some daylight under that back tire:Image

Drifting W123 Mercedes Wagon? Oh yeah!Image

The rarely seen Nissan Pulsar, on the autocross course:Image

Nissan S13.5 doing what it does best: Put on a show!Image

Drifter counting: 4 cylinders, 3 wheels on the ground, 2 doors, 1 turbo, 0 bumpers.Image

Aerodynamics can’t keep this Porsche 911 planted.Image

Another WRC Subaru makes its way into an up on 3’s post:Image

Toyota Camrys can play too:Image

 

Only dynamic suspension can get a car up on 3’s on flat ground. This bug shows us how it’s done!

Image

Chevy Luv

How awesome is this Chevy Luv Mud truck?

Image

The thing on the left, looking like a traditional hot rod, is actually a Chevy Luv!Image

Not really a 4×4 any longer: Pro Street Chevy Luv roasting the tires!

Image

I love how rough and gnarly this thing looks.

Image

From lowered to lifted, the Luv does it all!

Image

Although it seems most are low-riders or Pro Street Chevy Luvs.Image

Missing something?

ImageImage

Baja style Chevy Luv

Image

Slammed Chevy Luv on Torq Thrusts!

Image

Chevy Luv totin’ two at the dragstrip!

This one has so many cool details. My favorite is the exhaust stacks.

Feature: Nathan Benton’s 2009 Chevy Cobalt SS

Pics and words: Nathan Benton

I posted a pic of this car for Cool wheels that work on everything v.4: BBS LM

and the owner contacted me with some more info. So, without further ado, Nathan Benton’s 2009 Chevy Cobalt SS.

Image

Image

Image

Nathan has owned his Cobalt for two years, and started modding it as soon as he got it home.

Currently it’s equipped with a Hahn Intercooler, Cold Air Intake with Injen charge pipes with the stock K04 on it but  Nathan was able to get 324hp 421tq with AEM water/meth and a 30psi spike tune. He is still utilizing the stock clutch, along with the stock internals which have been known to withstand up to 500hp!

Image

Image

Image

Originally Nathan was running 18×9.5 Varrstoens es2.2.1 but wanted to get away from the extreme stance look and get something more functional so after performing a hub swap and ditching the 5×110 with 5×114.3 hubs, he was able to put on the 17×8-front 17×9-rear BBS LMs.

Image

Image

Additionally, Nathan added some other goodies like a Powell Raceshop Tow hook and Harness bar as well as a very stiff rear sway bar. He has autox’d the car a few times and have actually placed in his class recently.

Image

Image

Nathan says the Cobalt has been awesome, and he plans on getting ZZP’s EFR 6758 kit which is a direct bolt on, and he’d like to rebuild the LMs to 18s. Check out his flickr page for more pics:

Nathan gets much respect from me, and if anyone else out there has a cool car they would like to see on the site, send me some pics and info to safety.stance@yahoo.com

Matching vehicles

Whether intentional or not, owned by the same guy or friends who roll to events together, or a team of competition vehicles, I always love seeing the the same theme on vehicles together.
