KING Tariq and the R35 Nissan GT-R w/COR Encor Wheels

A smooth style for Godzilla.

It’s nice to be the king, and this R35 Nissan GT-R is king of performance and style with its super clean look and COR Encor forged wheels. The GT-R may have unbelievable performance and power figures thanks to that potent engine beneath the hood, but its smooth and clean style is what really helps to steal the show.

Built by Kings Performance, this Nissan GT-R owned by longtime customer, Tariq, was given a fresh dose of power, performance, and prestige thanks to an array of modifications that set it apart from the average GT-R.

Things start out with a lightweight and aerodynamic body kit that drastically alters the look of the GT-R. A Seibon GT-style carbon fiber hood reduces weight and helps dissipate heat from the engine while a Top Racing front end creates a unique and aerodynamically-optimized front fascia. Instead of the large factory rear spoiler, the GT-R was equipped with a subtle RevoZport carbon fiber trunklid with spoiler lip and lower diffuser from Wald to increase downforce for better overall performance at high speeds.

From there, the Nissan GT-R by Kings Performance starts to get really interesting. Godzilla was given a new set of COR Wheels that complete the clean look of the super car. The Encor wheels from the Concave Series were chosen for the GT-R with their high-strength forged aluminum alloy construction. Each wheel was installed with a concave and step-lip design that creates the appearance of muscle and power, and given tinted clear centers, polished outer lips, and silver inners along with OEM GT-R caps. The Encor wheels were fitted in a wide 21 x 10 front and 21 x 11 rear setup with 265/35/21 front and 305/30/21 performance tires for a dynamic footprint. To complete the stance, Kings Performance installed a new Cobb Coilover sleeve kit. Cor Wheels Gtr

The upgraded exterior and wheel fitment created the perfect platform for an modified and tuned engine. The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 was given a big boost of power thanks to a variety of modifications installed by Kings Performance. Air is sucked in through a KP three-inch Intake kit, boosted through both of the stock turbochargers and spit out through the new exhaust system comprised of a TiTek 90mm SS downpipe, Cobb 90mm SS midpipe, and AAM 90mm SS sport exhaust with titanium tips. A Forge wastegate actuator, ID1000cc injector set, FBM 270 lph Intank pump, and Cobb Access with TCM help boost power all the way up to 623 whp and 670 lb-ft. of torque using racing fuel. What’s that mean? A 10.5 @ 137mph on M/T Drag Radials quarter-mile run!

Inside, things have been modified for performance. A set of Bride seats help to keep occupants held in place along with new Takata seat belts. To ensure safety, a TMS four-point roll bar was installed to finish off the interior upgrades.

The R35 Nissan GT-R may not be the most powerful or the fastest, but you can guarantee it’s the king of speed and style with it’s COR Wheels and Kings Performance upgrades!

Ferrari F430 w/ COR Encor Forged Wheels

Dynamic styling for an Italian super star.

The Ferrari F430 was one of those Italian poster cars that ripped through the race track with Ferrari blood pumping through its veins. Its mid-mounted 4.3-liter V-8 engine was innovative and all-new for the brand, and consumed gasoline while producing pure adrenaline.

Although it has been replaced by the sleek and curvaceous 458 Italia, there’s still a special spot reserved in enthusiasts’ hearts for the F430. It’s a true Ferrari through and through and still stacks up well with the best super cars on the market today, especially with a set of COR Wheels.

On a Grigio Titanio Metallic Ferrari F430, one owner opted for a set of COR Encor three-piece forged wheels in a concave design to emphasize the dynamics and athleticism of the super car. The Encor wheels were the perfect way to convey the F430’s superb power and handling capabilities through their sporty double-spoke design and bold concave style that varies between the front and rear axle. Each wheel is crafted from high-strength lightweight forged 6061 aluminum alloy and hand-finished for a superb look.

The stance on the Ferrari F430 is wide and powerful, grabbing the attention of onlookers as it drives by with its high-revving V-8. The front axle was outfitted with the Encor wheels in a 20 x 9.0 setup with a light concave design and paired up with 245/30/20 sport tires. The rear was given a set of 20 x 12.0 Encor forged wheels with a super concave design to emphasize the rear-wheel drive setup and fitted with 325/25/20 tires. To match the Grigio Titanio Metallic exterior of the F430, the Encor wheels were given brushed titanium centers and outer lips, while the inner lips were given a darker matte black color.

These new COR Encor wheels ensure that this Ferrari F430 will be a modern classic for years to come.

BMW M3 (E92) w/ COR F1 Mesh Forged Wheels

Driving in style.

Out of the endless lists made about the best driver’s cars since 1985, it is almost guaranteed that the BMW M3 will be someone near the top. The German automaker struck gold with its first E30 M3 model and has carried on with that success ever since. They’ve been able to master the art of building a great driver’s car that offers superb performance. Now, with a set of COR wheels, one E92 BMW M3 brings out the true passion and style that comes with the art of driving.

BMW-M3-E92-20-COR-Wheels-F1Mesh

The E9x-generation of BMW M3 was special. It was the first time that the sports car had been fitted with a V-8 engine, and boy was it special. Remember that S85 V-10 that was used in the E60 M5? Well BMW chopped off a pair of cylinders to make this bad boy, which had an output of 414 bhp and 295 lb-ft at 3,900 RPM, and it redlined at 8,400 RPM. All that power and performance is great to have in the corners, but it’s the COR F1 Mesh forged wheels that really give this E92 M3 a leg up on the competition.

The COR F1 Mesh forged wheels were chosen for this BMW M3 due to their single-piece construction and unique styling. The black-finished rims feature a special mesh design that appears to “explode” from the center hub outwards and remain flush with the wide fenders of the M3 to create a muscular stance. For the front axle, the COR wheels were installed in a 20 x 9.0 setup while the rear was given a pair of 20 x 11.0 wheels for a wider footprint. The forged wheels were then wrapped in 245/30-20 and 295/25-20 performance tires to improve upon the already dynamic performance of the German sports car.

The Dodge Charger SRT8 w/ Forma COR Wheels

The Dodge Charger SRT8 w/COR Forma Forged Wheels

Time to throw down some power in style.

The Dodge Charger SRT8 is all new for 2012 and it’s bringing the pain with its brutal HEMI engine and rear-wheel drive layout. It’s pure American muscle and that’s how it should be kept. One red Dodge Charger SRT8 flexed its red muscles with a set of COR Wheels and is ready to lay down the rubber.

The red Dodge Charger SRT8 was given the upgrade treatment by Forged Wheel Source and it’s eager to rip the snot out of the pavement with its 6.4-liter V-8 and set of new COR Wheels. The HEMI engine that lies beneath the hood and spits out 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. of torque can often present some traction issues, some of which were resolved by the Forged Wheel Source team with a new set of COR Forma forged wheels and performance tires with added grip.

The new set of COR Forma forged wheels was installed in a wide 22 x 9.0 setup at the front and 22 x 11.0 fitment at the drive axle to create a larger footprint where it really matters. The front axle was then given a pair of 265/30/22 performance tires while the rear was equipped with two 285/25/22 tires. In order to make the wheels really stand out, each rim was given a matte black face with gloss black outer lips to contrast the vibrant red exterior paint.

The red Dodge Charger SRT8 with COR Forma forged wheels is ready to take on the best-of-the-best at the stoplight drag strip.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 w/ COR Cinco Forged Wheels

Taming a beast.

When it comes to performance SUVs, Europe has a strong hold on the market with the Cayenne Turbo S, BMW X5 M, ML63 AMG, and others. They’re fast, refined, and exciting. But, America has its own SUV that’s ready to slug it out with the best of them and isn’t afraid to spin it’s COR Cinco forged wheels and burn some rubber in the process.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a straightforward SUV. It’s big, has a refined interior, and a brutal, American V-8 that hammers the pavement with power. The second-generation SRT8 model features a potent naturally-aspirated 6.4-liter V-8 engine with 465 horsepower and 465 lb-ft. of torque. The team at Automotive Connoisseur Group has taken things a step further with COR Wheels and some engine upgrades that unleash the beast.

To start things off, Automotive Connoisseur Group upgraded the 6.4-liter HEMI engine with a few goodies to ensure its bark matched its bite. The stock exhaust system was removed and replaced with a custom-fabricated header-back system that optimizes backpressure and emits a fierce roar at the touch of the throttle. A new custom-fabricated cold air intake system was also installed to improve airflow and draw cooler air into each of the eight combustion chambers. The result of the upgrades is a dyno-certified 365 horsepower and 366 lb-ft. of torque to the wheels.

That’s a massive improvement over the stock figures, but it’s worthless unless that 365 whp is spinning COR Cinco forged wheels. Automotive Connoisseur Group opted to install a set of Cinco forged wheels on the black performance SUV in a wide 22 x 10 stance for the front and rear axles. Each of the forged aluminum alloy wheels were equipped with 305/35/22 Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta performance tires to achieve greater traction for the mighty 6.4-liter HEMI. The finishing touch for the COR wheels was a slick satin black center finish and gloss black outer rim to match the metallic black exterior paint of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 with COR Cinco forged wheels and upgraded HEMI engine will surely knock the socks off its European competition.

BMW X5M w/COR Bayonet Forged Wheels

Contradictions.

The BMW X5M is a vehicle of contradictions. It’s not supposed to be that fast; it’s not supposed to handle that well; it’s not supposed to look that good. But that’s exactly what it does, and does extremely well with its new COR Bayonet forged wheels.

Traditional SUVs are not supposed to be fast, handle well, or be proficient on the racetrack at all. Instead, they have been off-road capable people-carriers until BMW and other automakers began to change the mindset of the automotive world. The German SUV was the first all-wheel drive model to be tuned by the in-house M-performance division at BMW and boasts impressive performance and styling, especially with its COR Bayonet forged wheels.

Powering the BMW performance SUV is a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 engine that sends 555 horsepower to each of the lightweight forged wheels. It’s even a dynamic handler from the factory, with its suspension optimized for high-speed corners instead of all-terrain situations. But it’s the COR Bayonet wheels that really allow this Bavarian-tuned SUV to show its true colors on and off the track.

COR wheels installed a set of their Bayonet forged wheels on the BMW X5M in a massive 22 x 10 front and rear setup to expand its footprint as much as possible. The forged aluminum alloy construction of the Bayonet wheels help to reduce weight at the wheel hub and improve overall vehicle performance while retaining unmatched strength and durability characteristics.

Not only do the new 22-inch COR Bayonet forged wheels improve the overall performance of the BMW X5M, but they also give it a powerful, more athletic look with their concave design while their Gloss Black finish complements the stunning blue exterior paint.

A traditional SUV isn’t supposed to look this good; drive this fast; or handle this well, but you’ll be more than happy to drive this contradiction with COR Bayonet forged wheels.
