Over the past few years, there has been a influx into the world of aftermarket automotive centered around wheel fitment. It’s not that wheel fitment is a new concept, or that’s its been re-invented, but rather has evolved into places that hold no bounds. Wheel companies have progressed to offering aggressive fitments tailored to the millimeter of a customer’s liking, but typically that means shelling out a few more bushels of wheat then you might be accustom to.
Burnouts in one of the busiest intersections in downtown Chicago in a 400whp flat-black E38 known as nothing other than Gold Wheels. That’s how we spend our Saturday nights, screaming through cross-streets with open cutouts and barking velocity stacks.
It’s never easy to put Gold Wheels in to words, and its inarguably a love/hate car; but I have no question that everyone who sees the car in person, and more importantly, hears the car, falls in love instantly.
Now that I have your attention, I can only say that I am on the verge of passing out. Why? Well today, we had our way with the pavement and showed the track guys that the “stance kids” can hang too. So what brought on such a marvelous day? Our friends at Fluid MotorUnion hosted what they plan on being the first of many annual track days. It went off smoothly, without a hitch, and was one of the most fun days I’ve ever had.
There’s no doubt that wheels always make a car. They separate those that “do” from those that “don’t.” They’re often the difference between talking the talk and walking the walk. So when you have a wheel importing and refinishing company, it only makes sense to build the most badass wheels you can conjure up and then build a car to fit, and that’s exactly what Apartment 9 and Mastermind have done.
Not only was Tailored our first event held in the NorthWest, but it was also our first trip to that part of the country, and we must say we thoroughly enjoyed it.
In case you missed it, we hosted an event in Seattle with big help of Mike Tolliver and Dave Meister. They helped organize and operate the show and we’re overly pleased with the turnout.
