2015 Audi S8 With 22 Inch BD-1's in Matte Graphite

Image
Audi’s S8 is the pinnacle of German, uber luxury sedans, with an exterior that is unmistakably impressive. But don’t be fooled by the fancy exterior. The S8 impressively performs with athletic ability when the road gets twisty. Sporting a twin-turbocharged V8 cranking out 520 horsepower, this large flagship sedan can sprint to 60 mph in a claimed 3.9 seconds. Yet considering its size and blindingly quick performance, it is considerably lightweight and handles like the high performance vehicle you would expect.
Brand Wheels, located in Germany is one of our international dealers, and when they got their hands on Germany’s FIRST S8 we were ecstatic when they chose to put a set of our 22” BD-1’s on it in matte graphite with machine face
The guys at Brand Wheels said ‘no words can describe the BD-1’s on the Audi S8. We love Blaque Diamond Wheels and knew the BD1’s would be the perfect match.’
We can’t wait to see it charging down the autobahn with our BD-1 rims on it! Let’s see how many head…

Dodge Charger RT With 22 Inch BD-1's in Silver Polish

The Charger has a sleek profile, which blends modern styling accents with traditional muscle-car details. The four-door sedan looks great from almost any angle.
The significantly more exciting Dodge Charger R/T comes with a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 that pumps out 368 hp and can hit 60 mph in just six seconds.With all this force under the hood, we wanted to make the outside a head turning display with a set of custom rims.
We chose 22 inch BD-1’s in silver polish to complete the driving and curb side appeal of this beast.
‘With the new set of rims, the Charger is making people take a second and third look,’ said Juan, the owner. ‘They have also improved the handling ability. The Charger can be hustled around a hairpin corner with surprising ease. I couldn’t be happier with the new rims,’ Juan said.
The BD-1is offered in a range of finishes; silver with polished face, matte graphite with machine face, full matte graphite and semi matte black. This wheel is available in an array of staggered sizes…

It’s more aggressive aero work and wider stance make it the perfect combination for an aftermarket wheel.

“19 inch wheels come standard on the 650i, but been in the wheel business I wanted something bigger and better than the regular wheels,” said Omar, the owner of Rush Exotic Wheels. “We chose the 22 inch BD-1’s to give it a noticeable difference.

2013 Honda Accord Fitted with 20 Inch BD-2's in Silver Polish

Image
When you buy a car to get you from point A to point B you don’t want it to look like every other car out there. Cody bought the 2013 Honda Accord with practicality in mind. But after a few weeks of driving it, he realized it looked and drove like every other Accord on the road. So he bought a set of 20 inch BD-2’s in silver polish from us, lowered the suspension with low profile strut mounts that are built to drop the body on the ground and this gave it a serious altitude adjustment.
After completing the face lift on his Accord, it was time to do some internal surgery. So he decided to install a duel exhaust to give it more get up and go. But it didn't stop there. ‘I installed R1 concept pads and rotors were installed to not only give it the stopping power it needed, but to also upgrade the visual appearance behind the wheels,’ said Cody. “I then fitted a HFP ground effects kit and wrapped the roof black.”
Now the Accord has the driving and curbside appeal like no other Accord out …

The E46 impresses with a sweet mix of expressive attitude and relaxed demeanor. It’s 3.2L engine expels out 333hp with a metallic rasp that is music to a BMW enthusiast's ears.
There aren't many sports cars that compete with the M3. It easily handles a daily commute, a long distance drive while still been able to log fearlessly rapid time and speed.
Joe had modifications done to his BMW when he presented us with it. He had it lowered, installed a new exhausted and performance fuel injectors. So we needed to choose a wheel that gave it a complimenting addition.

The aggressive fender flares complimented the 20” staggered wheels perfectly to give make them a dominate feature on my car.’
