Mackin Industries SEMA 2016 Booth #TENSEMA16

The group that brings you Volk, Advan, Gram Lights, and more puts together an exceptional booth at SEMA '16

With so many vendors on hand at SEMA each year, you tend to run across a few different scenarios. With some, you're in and out within a minute because there's not much to look at, the product isn't sexy enough to hold your attention, or you simply grow bored of the subject matter. Then on the flipside, there are booths like Mackin Industries'.

Any wheel fiend worth their weight in forged metals can recite most of the Mackin lineup. Even if you're not completely familiar with wheel brands and styles, you no doubt recognize a number of the beauties on display at Mackin. Since you probably missed it, we bring you just a handful of the highlights from one of the best booths to daydream and drool over during SEMA 2016.

Perched on low offset Gram Lights 57 Transcend rollers and Nitto rubber, this girthy, flared MX-5 with red interior bits stole plenty of attention throughout the day. And while I've seen more than enough flares in my time, there's something about the AimGain kit's aggressive corners on the innocent little two-seater that makes things right. The carbon fiber Kuhl Racing wing is an excellent choice to finish off the rear.

Want to bring attention to your booth? Try parking a twin-turbo Audi R8 draped in carbon fiber and equipped with Advan Racing GT Premium rollers. Let me know how that works out for you.

What makes the classic Volk CE28 morph into a CE28SL? Glad you asked - and it's not just the badass spoke stickers that everyone will certainly be trying to emulate in just a few months time. Working their magic, Volk was able to reduce the already lightweight wheel's mass in areas like the center cap surround, while also adding rigidity to specific areas. The result is about 50 grams saved per wheel. And yes, those slick stickers that look perfect on this iconic wheel are part of the deal.

You wish you owned a Ferrari, but even more than that, you wish you owned a Ferrari on TE37 Ultras.

Beyond the fact that they look amazing, Advan's RS-DF Progressive wheels give you the best of both worlds as they're lightweight and carry some remarkable strength. The process of Mold Form forging makes this possible and the laser-etched logos insure legitimacy.

Ever since our sister publication, european car, did a story on the BMW M2s release, we've been itching to see one modified and we definitely like the way this one looks on Advan RS-DF wheels.

Simple and lightweight is what you get with Gram Lights new 57CR, which will be available in 17- and 18-inch versions with a shiny Gloss Black or matte Gun Blue finish. It's a safe bet that this classic wheel style will look good on just about any vehicle.

I was pumped to see these Advan RG-D2s in a 15-inch diameter on display. I can't wait to see these on a fourth- or fifth-gen Civic or properly built Miata. With so many late-model vehicles requiring much larger wheels, it's nice to see something available for the older chassis that people enjoy building or restoring.

The Advan display always brings a crowd. Here you see their GT center lock version for Porsche, standard GT model and AVS F50 wheel, as well as some of the caps available for various models.
