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.
Sometimes, it’s tough to put in to words when someone, or in this case, two people, mean a lot to you. We’ve all met people in this car scene, and I have no doubts that many of us have formed permanent relationships, all due to low cars.

I didn’t quite know what to expect.
