Customer Spotlight: Marquis’ Audi RS3 x Forged Rotiform LSR 3 piece

What a winning combination by Audi for the RS3. A performance sedan Audi enthusiasts all over have been begging for and Audi delivers! MQB architecture for the platform featuring a performance optimized inline five cylinder capable of making GTR owners second guess their lack of 4 doors when they see the tail lights. Bang for the buck is beyond an understatement with the Audi RS3. With Marquis’ big turbo RS3 he really wanted a set of wheels that can truly compliment the performance pedigree while being perfectly flush on his freshly equipped Air Lift suspension.

What we came up with was the Rotiform LSR. Featuring a convex profile that allows for maximum possible lip on the RS3 platform. We were able to also deliver a half inch larger rear lip while maintaining the same offset all around for a “staggered” look. Keeping the functionality alive as much as much as possible for the desired look and fit he wanted.

Now onto the details!

Customer Spotlight: Sean’s Audi R8 x Rotiform ZMO-M Forged

My friends know how much I love motorsport. A lot of new people will always meet me, see my cars and ask me why isn’t your car slammed? Why don’t you have more camber? For me the answer is clear. I LOVE to drive my cars and track my cars. It’s not that I don’t appreciate a stance build, as I actually do. It’s just motorsport speaks to me. Being on the track pushing your comfort zone to the limit while trying to learn the limits of your car. I tend to set up all my cars this way.

So when Sean wanted to make a set of Rotiform ZMO-M monoblock forged his new track set up we were fired up! What a wheel to compliment such a unique motorsport build. The minimalist and functional approach of Sean’s R8 is a home run to me for sure.

Customer Spotlight: Luwin’s Dajiban Style Ram Van x Rotiform MLW

Dajiban style – a bunch of Dodge short wheelbase V8 vans set up for motorsport, drift or straight up hooligan actives. What is not to love here? When Luwin reached out to us to get these wheels going I was actually really excited! For me the car culture is about adaptability and passion universally no matter the platform. From McLarens to Dodge vans – cool is cool and this van is one of my favorites. Luwin had a vision, and the only fit was the MLW by Rotiform.

Customer Spotlight: Niju’s R8 Turbo x Rotiform LSR x Air Lift

This R8 has been a journey. When I first met Niju, it was for a set of BC Coilovers for this very car. When we hear from Niju we always get excited. He always has a cool friend to refer, or a new exciting stage for the R8 that at times we get to to be apart of that.

This stage of his build is by far our favorite. The wrap color, the turbo work, the air and of course the wheels. Once we knew we were bagging Niju’s car and he was going turbo with Brandon at B-Rouge we knew wheels were next! Niju wanted a true motorsport feeling vibe for this 800+HP single turbo manual 4.2 R8. I think he hit the nail right on the head with the LSR.

Customer Spotlight: Rony’s CRV x Rotiform NEK

When you think CRV by Honda stance and show car usually doesn’t come to mind. Certainly niether does a negative offset, camber and air ride. That didn’t stop Rony from dreaming up quite possibly the baddest CRV we have ever had the pleasure of being apart of.

When we were asked for a quote for 21×10.5 -4/18 on a CRV, at first we contemplated if this was a PRANK. Quickly we saw how passionate and serious this request was. When we saw it come to fruition in real life, we were blown away! Now onto the details:

Shop Car Spotlight: E46 M3 x Rotiform LSR – final stage

The car here is a 2003.5 BMW M3 in Alpine white with a 6spd manual and 50,400 original miles in these pics, with factory nav, full black napa leather. Essentially the dream car from my highschool days. In its current state even better than I could have ever imagined. Shortly after this photoshoot the car was sold to a friend in Colorado who is enjoying what the M3 became. The perfect driving machine.

It has been tastefully upgraded my by myself into what I really wanted out of a BMW M3. I wanted the car to be drive-able and look the part. I wanted the CSL experience with a manual gearbox. So in we dove over about a year including some serious bodywork and paint by Precision Collision we didn’t plan to really do, but with anything, projects tend to just get out of control. Especially when you want to fit a 11.5″ rear with a 275.

Here are some of the build details.

For suspension: Status Gruppe SRS coilovers with 8/9k springs and adjustable pillowball camber mounts
SPC rear control arms

For wheels: We did Rotiform LSR in a 3 piece convex rear load configuration finished in matte trans candy gold face, chrome lips and hardware and black barrels. Sizing is 18×10 et25 and 18×11.5 et20, tire choice is a 245/40r18 and 275/35r18 from nitto. Car is set up with -2.5 degrees camber up front and -2.8 degrees in the rear

Performance wise we have done the following: Status gruppe full exhaust with – catless headers, rasp reduction section 1, SCZA section 3 with titanium tips
2m open velocity stacks
TTFS custom alpha N tune
Auto solutions 30% reduction short throw with the ultimate package and race bearings

On the Body: Full Respray Alpine white, extended rear arches by 10mm and fixed every little detail that we didn’t like. We also added a 1 piece Status Gruppe CSL front and rear splitter as well as color matched side markers.

Customer Spotlight: Rotiform SIX OR x Andew’s Porsche Cayenne Turbo S

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S is a MONSTER of an SUV. My first experience was in This EXACT generation. My Aunt’s lent me her Cayenne Turbo S when I was visiting California for the first time. I was at a much younger age and doing donuts on the beach in Santa Cruz was all I could dream of! AND THOSE DREAMS CAME TRUE! (Sorry Aunt Steph I couldn’t help it!)

I was hooked then and still to this day love the gravity defying speed the Turbo S delivers, even by today’s standards. What could make it better? More power and a more rowdy stance? I think so. Enter Andrew, when he said he wanted to be different, we just didn’t exactly know what to expect at first. The outcome, well we will let you judge for yourself. The BX Built Cayenne Turbo S, enjoy!

Customer Spotlight: Chelsea’s S550 x Rotiform and Air Lift

The S550 Mustang was a huge hit for Ford, and for us as a company. Even our own Joe Hoye succumbed to Bald Eagle Fever and got himself a S550 GT as well! When we think of the new S550 we think progress. Finally a Mustang with the fit and finish to go with the look and the power.

Chelsea wanted to have a flush, drive-able set up that retained performance while going low and a unique set of wheels to really complete her look. We knew right away air ride was going to be a nice compliment for her, especially with the wheel choice pick! 3 piece concave Rotiform KPS. One of the most unique split 5 spoke designs we have to offer. Now, onto the details of her set up!

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.
