It’s not everyday that you meet someone like Joe. He’s been there for us since practically the beginning.

When he let James know that he wanted a set of wheels and that he was cool with trying out a new brand, I was so curious to know how this would turn out.

After these SevenK Zeus wheels came in, we set some time aside to drive up through the beautiful mountains of Vermont to make sure we documented this.

Vermont was breathtaking, as usual; making it the perfect setting for such a well-done vehicle.

This 2012 Volkswagen Passat is bagged on a mix of Air Lift Slam and Performance Series bags managed with V2 Management. It rocks a shaved trunk, shaved hood, and a one-off badgeless grill (the only one made to fit the NMS Passat correctly). The roof is wrapped in black and the frame is notched for that lip-low look.

Spring is naturally a magical time of year for car enthusiast. Time to put away that daily driver, wipe the dust (or car cover) off of your sleeping beauty (err, car), and throw on that new set of wheels. Yes, the ones you have been waiting all winter for: it’s time to treat yo’self.I spent the winter longing for warmer days and lowered cars. Now that show season is back, I will fully appreciate every last ounce of craziness.

Josh’s MINI Clubman on Rotiform BLQ-Ts was a project Wheel Lab was working on. Naturally, I would be the one to shoot it since it’s a local customer car.

I’ve always been more of a traditional “vanilla” set of wheels type of person, but this particular set is now one of my favorites that I’ve seen on a car. It’s far from your traditional three piece wheel, polished lip, brushed/silver face (yes, yes, I’m super guilty of that on a personal level).

Before I keep rambling on, I present to you this blue beauty on rose-copper BLQ-T two-piece wheels:
