We all know how much work you have to put on a car to get a feature on Modified Magazine. Dave did just that back in 2010 with his monster GC8 rocking 18×10 SVN-R’s in Flat Black. Dave was one of the first people to run these aggressive wheels which were intended to turn like its on rails at the track. Dave’s GC also ran some spacers to push the wheels out to +5 offset in the front and +1 offset in the rear to fill out those massive custom installed Jun S13 Silvia fenders. This has to be one of the craziest cars to ever grace the pages of wheeldude.com!
