Customer Spotlight: David’s S550 x Rohana RFX5

The S550 is a platform we know and love. Joe our social media director happens to own one as well! The chassis itself is very capable, and for wheels you can fit some pretty wide rubber. Shown here is David’s Procharged 3.7 Mustang. When he came to us he wanted something strong, light and would not kill his budget.

After some deliberation, Rohana RFX series was chosen, and specifically the RFX5. Shown here in your typical perfect 20×10/11 fitment for the S550. Flowform technology brings strength and lightweight to customers who don’t necessarily want to spend forged money on wheels. Rohana knocks it out of the park with their RFX line up.

Customer Spotlight: A Perfect Foxbody Mustang?

When you are a kid growing up in America in the 80’s and 90’s as a car enthusiast it was a wild time for automotive styling. The foxbody mustang was no exception as long running platform and one of my favorites for the Mustang. The strong boxy look and the legendary 5.0 power plant have cemented the foxbody Mustang as a nostalgic car for me. Also, lets face it… all of us have memories one way or another (if you grew up when I did) in a foxbody Mustang doing hood-rat shit with your friends.

I have ALWAYS been fond of the notch back cars. I have ALWAYS wanted to build one, but have been distracted by other projects. Enter our customer’s perfect vision of a foxbody mustang. I could not have tailored a 5.0 much better myself, I have always had the mantra less is more with the 5.0. Shown here is this beautiful notchback on some CCW D110s by us here at Wheel Lab.

Wheels – Specs:
CCW D110
Front: 18×8.5 ET25
Rear: 18×10 ET25

Wheels – Finishes:
