It’s Wednesday and it feels like a Tuesday or a Thursday – I can’t really decide. I guess long weekends will do that to you. A lot of people like to enjoy their long weekends by relaxing, going to the lake and topping it off with a BBQ. I prefer to spend 18 hours of my weekend driving between two provinces.
A few weeks ago I was rolling in wheel photos but now that Autumn has pretty much arrived, I am finding it harder to find wheels to post. I pretty much have four weeks then we will be at SEMA and I can reload on my wheel ammunition. For today, I found this Lexus sitting on Schwert SC2m’s from the Slammed Society meet at Formula D round 5.
This is Kyle Leason’s car and these are his Work Meisters. Subsequently, I know a lot of Kyle’s and all of them like cars, mind you cars of different varieties. Although I am one to talk, this article could have been written by one of three Ryans who contribute to the site. I digress, this is Kyle’s 1995 Nissan Skyline GTR Vspec and these are his wheels.
I finally found sometime to get around and create my first wheel post! For the longest time I took for granted how awkward and creative you need to be to get a good angle and make the shot look great when focusing on wheels, so props to our trooper Ryan Benoit for pulling this off on a weekly basis. At Driven I must have spent a good portion of time laying on the floor, pondering the most disrespectful thoughts about my shooting positions.
I thought I had it all figured out as I walked around the lot. Defrost was a success and thanks to all the people who came out, I figured I would be set for wheel content. I spent sometime scoping out some unique rides and even contemplated what I would write. Then I saw the crew from Sakurajima Express unpack a trailer full a wheels. There were enough wheels (still ripe with the smell of the Pacific Ocean sea air) to make up a few Wednesday’s of Content.
So this video has been floating around the web for a while now. I thought I would throw it up and see what people’s thoughts are on one of the biggest arguments around, fwd vs stance. I use to be very against staggered setups on fwd’s but it has now grown on me. The Integra shown in this video is owned by Jose Sanluis, it portrays a nice example of how Honda owners are striving for that aggressive “fitment” that you see on most vip/drift cars around the web.
This will probably be the last time I post a set of wheels from the Fall Out meet. I believe that content has run its course and it is time to move on. Maybe some stuff will show up on Facebook or the other more difficult to use social medias. Besides, it is now depressing looking at pictures of Fall Out, the weather was so nice and now I am just waiting for the inevitable to ruin my life. I am not built for Saskatchewan winters and I have no idea how people even lived through them without modern technology. All those pioneers who settled in Saskatchewan must have arrived in the Summer not knowing what October through April would hold….. Enough of that, here are some wheels!
I was a little worried about what I was going to post today, but then I remembered the Slammed Society show in Seattle. Perfect, what better place to find wheels and sweet rides than at a Fatlace sponsored show? So here is what I am going to do, I will post the wheel pic and then the car that it belongs to, enjoy.
