Customer Spotlight: MKIV R32 x Rotiform CHD-T x Air Lift Performance

The R32 is the car that got me into modding cars. It was the most influential part of mid-twenties. The adventures with the R32 of my own were endless, including meeting my now wife; a special car for a special place in my heart. 3.2 liters of a VR6 24v exiting a dual exhaust mated to a 6-speed transmission and Haldex AWD. This car was my drug of choice in my mid-twenties.

I have known Mikey Wynkoop a long time now. We have worked together on a few of his cars; but NEEDLESS to say, this is my favorite. The goal was a clean, functional stance on air. The car was a clean slate and IMMACULATE — one of the best examples I have seen in recent years.

Onto the important stuff: when we think of Volkswagen, Rotiform is just a natural suggestion. We wanted something unique. The idea of the FUC was tossed around, but when Mikey and I landed on the CHD-T by Rotiform we knew that was it.

When it came to the air ride, we wanted performance and reliability. For that, we tend to gravitate toward Air Lift Performance Series and 3P management. Mikey’s car is exactly that.

Customer Spotlight – Devhan’s 2015 STI x Rotiform LVS X Air Lift

When you start a build you know it will change over time. This isn’t put first encounter with Devhan’s. His first set of wheels came from us when he first bagged the car with us. A killer combo to say the least. A full Air Lift 3P kit matched with Cast Rotiform KPS in 18×9.5 et25 to clear the huge OEM STI brakes. A VERY attractive set up.

Cast Rotiform Available Here

That is when Devhan knew he wanted to step it up. He wanted his “forever” wheels if you will, if there is such a thing! With his STI, I think we found just that. We decided on the Rotiform LVS.

Rotiform LVS
18×10.5 et15 front
18×10.5 et20 rear
Polished Rose Gold Face
Chrome Lip
Chrome Hardware

Just like that, his forever wheels became a reality! Enjoy some pics and video of his set up. Devhan is running what we call aggressive fitment for the VA WRX/STI Chassis. He is running about -3° Degrees camber up front and about -7° in the rear with stretched 225/40r18 tires. This is what we call PERFECT FITMENT. Enjoy!

@joelow94 x VW Passat

Words and pictures by Melissa Curtis (@missamagnificent)

It’s not everyday that you meet someone like Joe. He’s been there for us since practically the beginning.

When he let James know that he wanted a set of wheels and that he was cool with trying out a new brand, I was so curious to know how this would turn out.

After these SevenK Zeus wheels came in, we set some time aside to drive up through the beautiful mountains of Vermont to make sure we documented this.

Vermont was breathtaking, as usual; making it the perfect setting for such a well-done vehicle.

This 2012 Volkswagen Passat is bagged on a mix of Air Lift Slam and Performance Series bags managed with V2 Management. It rocks a shaved trunk, shaved hood, and a one-off badgeless grill (the only one made to fit the NMS Passat correctly). The roof is wrapped in black and the frame is notched for that lip-low look.

Spring is naturally a magical time of year for car enthusiast. Time to put away that daily driver, wipe the dust (or car cover) off of your sleeping beauty (err, car), and throw on that new set of wheels. Yes, the ones you have been waiting all winter for: it’s time to treat yo’self.I spent the winter longing for warmer days and lowered cars. Now that show season is back, I will fully appreciate every last ounce of craziness.

Josh’s MINI Clubman on Rotiform BLQ-Ts was a project Wheel Lab was working on. Naturally, I would be the one to shoot it since it’s a local customer car.

I’ve always been more of a traditional “vanilla” set of wheels type of person, but this particular set is now one of my favorites that I’ve seen on a car. It’s far from your traditional three piece wheel, polished lip, brushed/silver face (yes, yes, I’m super guilty of that on a personal level).

Before I keep rambling on, I present to you this blue beauty on rose-copper BLQ-T two-piece wheels:
