The Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is a luxury sports car that not only breaks necks, but can keep up with with some of the world's fastest cars. As the company's high-perfromance version of their highly coveted S-Class, the S63 AMG packs a punch with ample horsepower under the hood. Outside, it's sleek and sophisticated, just as you'd expect from a Benz, while the inside is pure opulence, with supple leather, wood garnishments and metal trim.

Nothing beats an awesome weekend checking out new rides, which is what many Southern Californians did this past Saturday, April 25th for the 2015 Autocon show at the Pomona Fairplex. Savini Wheels partnered with our boys at MSTR Watches to showcase some some of the hottest wheel styles from our collection to complement their unique and classic time pieces. The Prior Design Corvette C7 was the center of attention in the booth, sitting on a fresh set of SV58 forged wheels in white and black, with carbon fiber lip accents. Impressive Wrap also brought out the Liberty Walk BMW M4 in its stealth satin chrome wrap. And we can't forget the Project Ronin Rocket Bunny Mercedes-Benz CLK that made a cameo.

Many couldn't wait to get inside the driver's seat of the next generation Cadillac Escalade. Since it's debut back in 1999, Cadillac has offered customers body styling, luxurious interiors and V8 power.

You'll first notice its now larger grille, new headlights and a more pronounced character line that flows on each side of the SUV, as well its rear being a bit boxier than usual.

Gilbert Anguiano really knows how to enhance a BMW's stye and performance - after all, he's a performance parts specialist at McKenna BMW - so it was a no brainer to hook up his own 228i Bimmer. To get it to look its best, a Dinmann full carbon fiber aero package was added, as well as a Seibon carbon fiber hood and some M Performance carbon fiber interior pieces to match its exterior. But it was all about boosting its performance for Anguiano, who added an array of performance parts, including: Rolloface Performance big brake upgrade kit 8-piston front, 6-piston rear 380mm rotors all around; Rolloface charge pipe; Evolution Racewerks intercooler; Injen cold air intake system; Hexon Racing Development Stage 1 turbo upgrade; Burger tuning JB4 Stage 2 tune; and an AR Design catless downpipe
To get the stance just right and to add to its exterior styling, a fresh set of Black di Forza BM9 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear wheels in a brushed bronze finish were wrapped in some Toyo Proxes4s 225/35R19 front and 255/30R19 rear rubber.

To offset its bright exterior, the wheels were finished in yellow and black for a bold statement.
When your ride needs extra style, look no further than a clean set of Black di Foza wheels.

Each set comes with a machined surface aluminum cap that has a newly designed Black di Forza logo engraved, while the deep concave spoke profile only enhances the style and design of the BM11 wheel.
Our wheels grace the rides of many different people - from entrepreneurs and businessmen, to everyday Joe's and celebrities - which is how it should be. We created our various wheel styles with different rides and personalities in mind, and we're always stoked to see them on high-profile rides like DJ Infamous' Cadillac Escalade. He was recently shot with his pal Ludacris for the cover of DUB Magazine.
