Sema: Suit and Tie edition

“VIP” has grown as a style from the days of big black, mostly stock-bodied Japanese sedans slammed on static suspension and big expensive wheels. Nowadays, pretty much any color and any make is fair game, as well as crazy body kits and loud details.

The new, “Imported from Detroit” Chrysler 300C looks natural dropped on flashy wheels.

The new Hyundai Genesis sedan sitting mean in a dark grey is another example of the new VIP.

Fitment being on point is still a big part of the VIP trend as demonstrated on this VIP Y50, or Infiniti M45 as it is more commonly known.

Believe it or not, but this picture is several years old, before many people were really doing anything with this platform.

How about that fitment? Hellaflush Chrysler 300C!Image

This is proof-positive that ANYTHING can be fast, even a gigantic luxo-barge can pull tires with enough power and grip!

Cool wheels that work on everything, v.1: BBS RS

I know there are many kinds of the BBS wheels in this style, and many things that can be done i.e. different types of lips, faces, caps, bolts, etc.

 

Somehow, they look good on anything.
