How We Roll.... The Wheels of The Chronicles Year V Event

Nov 5, 2013

If there's one thing The Chronicles is well known for, it's that the sites creator, Joey Lee, is a staunch supporter of all things authentic - especially when it comes to wheels. As I wandered through the Eibach facility parking lot during The Chronicles Year V anniversary meet and took in all of the automotive eye candy, I managed to snap a few pics of the wheels that caught my eye.

Not surprising, rare Japanese wheels are still at the top of most enthusiasts' lists. Many of the wild colors that we've seen over the past few years have faded away, with more traditional colors standing once again at the forefront. And while some argue that spending more money on wheels than the actual cost of your project vehicle's chassis is out of the question, others chalk it up to the old adage; "you gotta pay to play."

Debates aside, everyone likes clicking through images of nice wheels and there were plenty on hand at the Year V meet.

DPK*Jared's S2000 sports a full set of Mugen M7s originally intended for the rear of an NSX. To make that happen, he had to purchase 2 sets of Mugen NSX-spec M7s, keep all of the rears, and sell the fronts. Not easy to do, and in no way cheap.
