There are exactly 1,983 wheel booths at SEMA this year and ... ok, that's a lie. However, there are a ton of wheel brands represented at the big tradeshow every year, and 2017 is no different. There are some you've never heard of, others you wish you'd never heard of, and then of course a number of well-known brands you've either had on your car or you plan to one day have on your car. And there's a 99.9 percent chance one of those wheels you hold in high regard is made available to you because of these guys - Mackin Industries.
Every SEMA, Mackin brings out a huge chunk of their wheel catalog to display and they'll often break news on a new model or options, as well as fill their booth with some very nice builds, and in typical Mackin fashion this year they didn't disappoint. Here's a quick rundown of what they hit the Vegas crowd with for 2017.
At quick glance, you probably noticed the 21-inch RR/20-inch FR Advan GT wheels and the extremely low stance but what you might have missed is the AIMGAIN aero kit. Oh, regarding the price on that kit, the MSRP will take you right up and over the $20,000 mark.
The wild angles and vented bits on this Varis kit could only be named one thing; Kamikaze. This is the first to hit U.S. shores and completely transforms the look and feel of the "86" chassis.
You haven't seen Volk's TE37 Saga wheels in mag blue before because they simply weren't available, but that's all changed now with their special colors program. This particular set, in 18x11, is another first on American soil. To top it all off, a Blitz turbo kit was also incorporated.
What's better than scooting around in Porsche's incredible GT3? A GT3 with 21-inch RR/20-inch FR center-lock Advan GT wheels, of course. The purple and gold combo sees a bit of contrast from a carbon-fiber wing and the decibels have been increased with an Fi exhaust set up.
Varis was also the aero of choice for this STI that rides on 18x9.5 Gramlights 57CR - a clean, classic style wheel that seems to be increasing in popularity.
The real deal. Rays Engineering goes to great lengths to make sure their customer knows they're getting a genuine product. Constantly evolving, clever details like this engraved lip help buyer's separate the real from the counterfeit.
Huge 22-inch TE37 Ultra intended for SUVs and trucks. Once considered somewhat out of the ordinary, it's become far more common to see Volks on a Tacoma or FJ Cruiser.
AutoFashion USA put this Toyota CH-R together using the newly debuted Lexon kit and a set of Rays Variance Versus rollers.
