    Definitely liking the 503 more than the 702, much more simple and track-inspired, which is what I like :)

    I used Wade’s services for my wife’s car. The service was great., and he really took the time to explain things to my wife. The best part is the convenience!

    Regrets, we all tend to have them. I am going to share with you my most recent. This is a tale of a set of wheels that came and went before their prime. Sent off to live a life of tracking and fun with Jason Kanarky. I didn’t really appreciate them until they were gone.

    In my quest to debut every set of wheels on the GT350 for potential customers I ordered a set of our Signature Wheel Precision Series SV702. Until now they had only been built for Bobby Ramser’s S197 Roush and Greg Hildebrand’s S550. Beautiful cars, however, I wanted to test some new offsets and get technical data for everyone.

    This wheel was ordered in the GT350R spec, but with modified offsets to reduce the rear poke, and make the fronts more concave. The new concave profile adds about 1lb to the front. Happy to report no rubbing with the new rear specs, even with the wider tire. The new owner has also tracked them, done burnouts, and driven the Tail of The Dragon without issue.

    I finally got around to editing the photos I took and really started to love the look. It rekindled a love for black wheels, but In the end I still like some brighter finishes. May end up ordering another set at some point. Here is the skinny:

    Signature Wheel Precision Series SV702
    Matte Black
    Anti-Slip Bead Knurling
    19x11 - 305/30/19 MPSS
    19x11.5 - 325/30/19 MPSS

    Front Wheel Data
    Front wheel weight - 24.11 lbs
    Front tire weight- 29.03 lbs
    Combined wheel/tire weight 53.14 lbs

    Rear Wheel Data
    Rear wheel weight- 19.31 lbs
    Rear tire weight- 35.05 lbs
    Combined wheel/tire weight - 54.36 lbs

    One of my buddies Chris Gonzales is a tinkerer. He owns a tracked out S550 and knows his way round an LED board. He developed some custom rear LED lights to replace the reflectors in the S550 rear valence. Pretty slick when I saw them for the first time, and asked him to build me a set. As far as I know these were the first set to be installed on a car that wasn't his.


    The install process took me about 3 hours, but it was because I was being a dunce. The rear valence on the GT350 has some added bracing in the way of removing the one nut that bolts the reflector in place. Once I figured out I could push things around to get my swivel in place the removal was pretty easy. Chris wrote up some instructions based on my experience, and even added heat wrap to block the wires from the exhaust. The only thing you need to remove on the GT350 is the lower diffuser, but that comes off easy enougt.

    Here is a short video of them in operation. They work as a running light, brake light, turn signal, and hazard. You can also disconnect certain wires to make them work how you want.

    Some updated shots of my GT350R on the SV302S. This is the answer to the OEM 2019 GT350 wheel if that is what you are after. This is a great spec for stock ride height, lowered, street, and track use. You can also see how clean the Exhibitions Of Speed Titanium Lug nuts install with the package. Oh, and this wheel setup is currently for sale :)

    Iron man meets Thanos. For those that didn’t know I picked up a 91 LX hatchback as a development car. Dropped the new Foxbody project off for a little TLC with the guys at Imperial Works I’m Sacramento. Going to see what can be done with the paint from the 90’s . Getting it all cleaned up for the new Signature Wheel SV902 and Griggs Racing suspension.


    Just so happened they finished wrapping a Dodge Demon. Makes the Fox look small, but I will admit the Demon has some good road presence.


    Couple components from Trackspec Motorsports and Carters Customs on the way too. 2019 should be fun as I plan to test the Foxbody against metrics the R has set. What mods you guys have planned?

    Nice!

    When you get the 6GR wheels in please do me a favor and measure the caliper clearance on them. I have been wanting to get my hands on that data

    As time goes on I am starting to develop a real love for photography. Still a novice with my Nikon D3300 and Lightroom.

    Most recently I had the good fortune of meeting Brett Turnage of Hot Rod Magazine. The guy is a total bad ass photographer, excellent writer, and just so happens to drive a 2018 GT350R as well. Been taking some tips from him and it helped on my last shoot with the new Signature Wheel Reserved SV901 mounted. I have a satin black 19x11 square set of these in production now if anyone is interested.

    Long way to go, but got really good feedback/critiques from him this last set. Enjoy!

    Signature Wheel Reserved SV901
    Brushed Aluminum Clear
    19x11/19x11.5 (21-23lbs)
    305/30/19 & 325/30/19 MPSS
