Installed Magnuson and Vossen wheels!

So I've had a busy winter so far spending entirely too much money on this car. I worked a deal with Vossen to get into a set of their custom forged wheels for a considerable price break. They are their newest wheel from a new forged line they are building called the HC-1. They are 21x9.5 and 21x11 with 265/35 and 305/30 Pirelli tires. I opted for the upgraded brushed aluminum finish, with a Dark Smoke Transparent powdercoat finish. As many of you know, I've had quite a few custom wheels now, but this set really is absolutely perfect in finish and quality. I even made friends on Instagram with an employee in the Vossen shop that sent me over 30 videos of the entire process of my wheels getting manufactured and finished - it was really badass. I posted a number of them on my Instagram - @AbsolutHank13


Around the same time I placed the order for my wheels, an opportunity came up with a local tuner shop that I use for all my wheel mounting/balancing and tint. I reached out to the owner since I knew he had recently installed a Magnuson SC on a Tundra. He currently had two other customers about to pull the trigger on ordering Magnuson's for their vehicles, and if I were to purchase a kit for my car, those three purchases at once would allow him to become an official reseller for Magnuson. He agreed to sell me my kit at his cost, and he would eat the sales tax and shipping! I figured I'd never run across a deal like that again, so I ordered the full intercooled kit. I'm still on their supplied tune and haven't even hit the dyno yet - they advertise 550whp on 91 octane for the manual transmission cars. I hope to add a smaller pulley and maybe methanol to get close to 600whp next month. I also added a Corsa Axleback and new X pipe to get rid of the raspy NPP factory setup. I grabbed a few pictures of the new setup earlier today

You know I'm not sure, but they are forged monoblock construction, so damn light

Well I'm lowered on BC Coilovers too.

Custom Forged wheels range from $6000-10000, plus tires. I paid somewhere in the middle
