History Channel’s new show, “Leepu & Pitbull” will feature a fresh set of Savini Forged SV56 wheels slammed on a 1972 Ford Ranchero that's owned by DUB Magazine’s co-founder Myles Kovacs for its second episode airing on tonight, June 30, 2015. Designed and built by Leepu and PitBull Motors, the crew only had four weeks to turn a rusty 1972 Ford Ranchero into a souped-up custom car that was unveiled at the 2015 New York Auto Show during an exclusive press conference earlier this year. To create a show-worthy custom, master mechanic Steve PitBull and world renowned Bangladeshi car designer Leepu added some Forged wheels in our eye-catching SV56-C 24x9.5 front and 24x15 rear, with a deep matte and gloss black finish. “When DUB Magazine reached out to us about the Ford Ranchero project, we were thrilled to be part of the build,” says Tony Madrigal, marketing director here at Savini Wheels. “We chose the SV56 style because to enhance the classic lines of the new widebody Ranchero.” To see the entire build process and the unveiling of the original custom, tune in to Episode Two of “Leepu & PitBull,” which airs on tonight at 10 pm, right after “Counting Cars” on the History Channel.

JC Customz is the go-to shop for some of hip-hop's biggest players and the crew recently gave Chris Brown's Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 a fierce makeover.

We spent a week in the ATL with our boys at Butler Tires & Wheels to shoot some fly rides rocking a few styles from Savini Wheels and this was one of our favorites. The all-new Bentley GT V8 S roars with power thanks to its 4.0-liter V8 engine, allowing this sporty and luxurious new GT an agility you'll definitely feel while behind the wheel. Outside, the new Bentley adds a new front bumper and lip-style spoiler that adorns its rear, while a newly designed iconic Bentley "B" fender vent rests behind each front wheel. And speaking of wheels, a fresh set of Black di Forza BM12 22x9 front and 22x10.5 rear wheels, in machined black finish, enhance its exceptional styling cues. Shoutout to Bentley of Atlanta for providing us with slick new Bentley that broke necks while out in Hot-lanta! Check out our visit to the city's Caffeine & Exotics event here!
The Dallas stop of the 2015 DUB Show Tour went down on Sunday, June 14th and was one of the best show's we've been to all year! Held at the Dallas Convention Center, the show was practically sold old and we traveled over to the Lone Star state to show off some of the hottest rides slammed with a set of Savini Wheels and even hooked up with some local heat for the display. The booth fleet included a Prior Design Corvette C7, Ferrari F430, Corvette C7 from Moonshadow of Dallas, Chevy Camaro from Branded Customs, '69 Chevy Camaro, and a show-stopping '75 Chevy Impala from Swift CC. After guests were done scoping out loads of dope rides, they were treated with an all-star concert, featuring Future, August Alsina, Kevin Gates and Cheddar Da Connect. We'd like to give a huge thanks to the entire DUB Magazine family for hosting a great event and for all of their support in having Savini participate. Also like to thank Moonshadow Dallas, Branded Customs, and all of the local car owners that came out with heat for the display.
You've probably seen this blue beast at a car show or on social media since the Rocket Bunny CLK by V.I.P. Edition has garnered a massive following. Maybe it's because of its striking blue exterior (a custom Porsche GT3 RS blue to be exact) or brushed bronze Savini Wheels, but whatever it is, there's no denying that it's stand out ride. The Rocket Bunny wide body kit gives it an aggressive look, in addition to the CRZY Eng front and rear diffuser and trunk wing. A CKS coilover suspension provides it a smooth ride and a GReddy exhaust enhances its under-the-hood performance. You'll hear it coming a mile away thanks to its Pioneer sound system, while other featured mods include custom paneling and LED lighting, PIAA fog lights, StopTech brake lines, IKONIC Design Studio vinyl graphics and Tire Graphix tire lettering. To set off its stance, a set of 19x9 front and 19x12 rear Savini Forged SV55-P wheels in a brushed bronze finish with black centers were wrapped in some Toyo Proxes 265/R30 front and 295/30R19 rear tires.
Riding in style is easy when you're behind the wheel of a BMW 6-Series Its elegant exterior lines, driving dynamics and innovative technologies all combine to equal an amazing machine on four wheels. California Wheels wanted to add to its sleek and elegant design and opted to fit this particular 6-Series with a set of our Forged SV39-C wheels - 21x9 up front and 21x10.5 in the rear. The result is nothing short of perfection!
When our pals over at RK Sport needed some dope wheels for their latest project vehicle, we were more than happy to send them one of our most eye-cathcing wheel styles - our Forged SV56 (21x9 5x120.65 front and 22x11 5x120.65 rear) rims - to adorn their Corvette Stingray. The result was a neck-breaking 'Vette with style and power, thanks to a few mods from RK Sport like their Carbon Fiber accents, including a hood, front splitter, rocker panels, rear spoiler and rear diffuser. Already a beast untouched, RK Sport make it roar with power with the addition of a Corsa Black Tip exhaust, Whipple supercharger and some fine tuning by Cunningham Motorsports, allowing it to push out 600 HP with 577 lb-ft of torque. Rounding out the list of mods is a set of Toyo Proxes T1R 55/30R21 front and 295/25R22 rear rubber. Be on the look out for more of this Stingray in the near future!
