UPCOMING EVENTS

Thinking Outside of The Box

The pursuit of  perfection in a ride has always been Kentaro’s state of mind. People call him a wheel whore because of the many wheels he’s gone through, but I see it as trial and error. He never found the right set of rims until now, which I agree with him look spot on with his ride. Now let me introduce to you, Kentaro’s xB…Inspired by the VIP culture in Japan, Kentaro put his inspirations into the xB from the Junction Produce Fusa to the chrome brushed rear bumper cover.

If you’re wondering what wheels these are, they are fully polished Borbet Type A. These wheels are mostly seen in the Euro tuning scene, but Kentaro managed to pull it off on his xB while looking pretty unique. Kentaro is currently scraping the crap out of his front lip on the daily. His car looks insane when rolling. What I really love about Kentaro’s style of tuning is the recurring polished theme from rear bumper covers, wheels and door handles. I love it when it all comes together to make a great looking ride. Cusco camber plates help the xB bring out the negative camber that is hard to achieve on stock suspension.
