Every year Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) gets all the buyers, manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers together at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This isn't just a gathering of sport compact companies, it's a convention for all automotive aftermarket brands including companies for domestics, off-road trucks, lowriders and just about everything custom car-related.

A lot of effort was put into this tire to ensure it works exceptionally well in the rain and in the process Hankook has created a new patented technology called the "Twister System" that forcibly removes water from the tire's contact patch.

Unfortunately, the SEMA Show is not open to the public. But luckily for you, we've always sacrificed ourselves to the City of Sin, to bring you coverage of the show. Hot products and cars follow in the next two articles. This here is just some of the coolness that filled the gigantic Las Vegas Convention Center halls.

We do apologize for not sharing with you all the debauchery we had to endure. But big thanks to Falken, Continental, 0-60 Mag (RIP), M Fest, Formula D, Gran Turismo, Scion, Subaru, Hyundai, Honda, and many others for taking us out, throwing parties and getting everyone completely hyphy.
