2018 Truck of the Year on 24" Blaque Diamond BD-17/6

Image
Truck Trend's 2019 Pick Up Truck of the Year goes to the all-new 2019 Dodge RAM 1500 Bighorn - and with good reason! Winning multiple awards for the light-duty trucks for 2019, it was only right that Blaque Diamond got it's hand on one of these big boys. After an intense week long challenge the RAM beat the likes of Ford, Chevy and GMC to become the rightful king of the pick up truck throne. With an advanced interior and tech that the competition can't touch, the RAM's interior virtually has no competition.

When it comes to the aesthetic of these trucks, it's truly subjective. Some like the styling of the Ford, some like the Chevy, but we can't argue that a nice pair of shoes doesn't complete the look of any of these trucks. Blaque Diamond has a line of wheels specifically catered to these big pick up trucks that are offered in a 6 Lug bolt pattern with wheel diameters of 22-24".

For this RAM, we went with a 24" wheel to complement the size of thi…

2018 Audi RS5 on 20" BD Wheels BD-F18

Image
In the last few months, Blaque Diamond has been putting a lot of focus into the Audi scene. With an array of new models hitting the showroom floor, we had to take the bull by the horns and start with the top dog, the Audi RS5. If you thought the S5 packed a mean punch, just wait until you feel what the steroid induced RS5 can do. With a 444-hp 2.9L V6 and 443 lb-ft tq, you can expect the RS5 to get you from 0-60 in a blistering 3.5 seconds. Not too shabby for a car priced under 75K for the base model. 

Aesthetically, the car looks beautiful. The front grill really shows off how aggressive this car is. Yet, with all the aggression, the sleek lines of the side profile show how classy Audi can be while trying to kill you! The large dual exhausts in the rear really set the tone for car. Although many may say the V8 version of the RS was a better car, the V6 really hold it's own in terms of performance and sound. Letting off the accelerator in the car is something similar to the Jag F…

The Last "Real" Z06 on Blaque Diamond BD-F18

Image
The Z06 was designed to be the ultimate driver's car - an expression of pure raw performance. Chevy developed the Z06 based off their C7.R race car which is clearly evident when you take a look at the ridiculous specs packed into this beast. The Z06 is comes equip with a supercharged aluminum 6.2L V8 engine that boasts and impressive 0-60 time in just under 3 seconds! With a technologically advanced transmission, the Z06 offers an 8-speed automatic and an interesting, but very fun, 7-speed manual. 

Included in Car & Drivers TOP 10 Best cars, the Z06 get's even better when Blaque Diamond gets it's hands on one. The Z06 is one tough cookie, finding the proper fitment for the beast is no easy task. After countless hours, the geniuses at BD Wheels were able to get the absolute perfect fitment dialed in for both comfortable daily driving and tire shredding track fun! 

There are a ton of wheels in the BD line up that qualify to be run on the Z06, but the BD-F18 is by far th…

2018 Nardo S5 Sportback on 20" Gloss Black BD-F18

Image
A few years back, many people would have agreed that the proper sports car only had two doors. Fast forward to 2019 and you can kiss that statement goodbye. All the big dogs in the luxury sports car space have shifted their focus in creating four-door family sports sedans that wipe the floor with your boring conventional two-door sportster. What Mercedes started years ago with the CLS has now grown into a market of its own with BMW following suit with the M4/6 Grand Coupe and later Audi with the RS7. Even smaller economy cars such as the Honda Civic and Accord have taken on the "sportback" design with the elongated sleek C-pillars. 
With the absence of the S4 wagon here in the states, Audi has blessed us with something slightly cooler than the wagon and introduced the S5 Sportback. The S5 boasts a respectable 350hp and 370ft-lb tq hitting 0-60 in 4.3 seconds. 

With all the new tech and proper styling of the Sportback, it was only right to take the S5 to the next level. With…

2016 Mercedes Benz S560 on 22" Blaque Diamond BD-11 in Gloss Black

Image
The pinnacle of luxury. The Mercedes Benz S-Class has always been the most luxurious sedan offered by the German car maker. With premium quality materials used all over the spacious interior and a handcrafted engine, you  really couldn't ask for more out of the S. With a variety of different trim levels and engines specs to choose from, there is an S-Class for everyone. Well, anyone who can afford one anyway! 
The difference between our S560 and the rest of the S-Classes out there is ours less boring. The standard 560 is equip with either a 19" or 21" wheel option. Neither of those wheels really compliment the big body of the S. The design on the stock wheels are outdated and don't really emphasize the class of vehicle the S-Class is in.

We opt'd to put something on there that would stand out. First thing was first, we know we wanted to put 22" wheels to really compliment the size of the car. With the large yellow brake calipers, we also knew that we wanted th…

2018 Ford F-150 SXT on Concave 24" Blaque Diamond BD-15

Image
The BD-15 is one of the most versatile wheels in the Blaque Diamond line. Offered in both 5 and 6 lug configurations, the vehicles these wheels can be mounted on is virtually endless. We've mounted a set on the likes of a Lamborghini Huracan, Camaro ZL1, Jeep Rubicon and today, we have mounted them on a Ford F-150. Why did we mount them on an F-150? Well, because we are leaders in the space. We wanted to something that no one has ever done. Putting 24" DEEP CONCAVE wheels on a lifted truck with beefy mud tires.

It's a look that we know will grab attention. Being in the wheel space since 2008, we've always wanted to set ourselves apart from diluted wheel market with same old stuff being thrown out. We have three wheels in our line that cater to this audience. The BD-15, BD-17, and the BD-77. All will provide that deep concave look that the car guys are going for. Now you can join the club and set yourself apart from the rest of the trucks out there.
