I am pretty excited about these. I love mesh style wheels, and I love having the options of running smaller diameter wheels on my E36 or E90 even (I want 18’s next for performance reasons and better performance tire options). They are made by Enkei for RocketBunny 6666 and will be offered in custom sizing and pcd from 16 to 18 inches and 100 – 130 pcd.
I love old Toyotas and Rotary engines. Throw the two together and you have this.
I’ve always pulled a lot of my styling ideas for my personal cars from other makes and styles. I don’t like to surf any one particular forum for ideas. I feel like the reason why you see a lot of similarly modded cars on the same forums is because that is all people ever look at. If they know A + B is the combo to set up their ride then why take a harder road? My personal style is function always following the looks of the vehicle. Now that doesn’t mean it will be the fastest around the track or have Rcomp tires on it 24/7, but I always set my rides up so that I can hop in them at anytime without worry. My newest project the E90 is a great example. I stretched the tires and have the wheels millimeters away from the fender lip, but at the same time the car rides excellent and doesn’t rub no matter what happens. To me a car is not complete if it only looks a certain way. Making it perform (whether that just be driving on the highway without issue) is just as important. I don’t mind a dedicated car (for performance or looks) either, but for myself I need my cars to be used on or off the track and parked or doing 80. I’ve always liked old school Toyota’s that are drift inspired. They typically look good and are meant to be used also. I feel like you get a bit of that influence by looking at my E30 drift/street car.
I am tired of hearing all the whining on the internet. I’ve always felt a real car enthusiast respects all aspects of the car community. I’ve been wanting to write up an article of how I feel about it all. I came across this article on Speedhunters and thought it was pretty on point. There’s people on either side that are just annoying.
Many of my friends are going are these days. I was a big time hater to start, but as I have gotten older and take a ton more roadtrips I see that having something that is adjustable anytime you like doesn’t seem so bad. My good friend Andrew has been installing and putting together some of the best Air setups in LA. I feel he is the guy to go to for Air these days. He doesn’t have all the overhead of some of these big name shops, and he probably has more experience.
Our crew… the wrongfitmentcrew rolled out to Palmdale for a late meet yesterday. It’s always fun catching up with my folks and seeing some nice cars.
This is my friend Kenny Chow’s Corolla wagon. I’ve known this guy for several years now. The wagon has always been cool, but it has gotten cooler and cooler over the last couple of years. It sat in his driveway for quite some time due to electrical problems. It’s one of those cars that pushes me to continue being original with my projects.
I’ve been taking my time with posting more pics from Hawaii because I am still getting back on track here in LA. I had such an awesome time out there. I’m hoping to make the trip again soon. Hellaflush Hawaii was such a crazy day. There was something like 3,000 people that came out. I did everything from stage cars to judge the show to collect money for entry fees. It was one of those ultra hectic days that at the end of it all you feel really accomplished.
A long time ago I started a fitment related thread on Nasioc. It’s long gone now and other threads have since taken over. The hating a whining over stretched tires and such got so out of hand I decided to get a Meaty tire thread going. I love both styles, and on either side there’s people doing it completely wrong or right. I was happy to see this Forester when I checked the Meaty tire thread this morning. He’s fitting 17×10.5’s and 275 width tires. Also you can see the car is getting a complete build inside and out.
