Event Coverage: Formula Drift Rd. 1 - Streets of Long Beach

Our Wheeldude crew went down to Southern California for the weekend to take some coverage of the Formula Drift Rd. 1 - Streets of Long Beach event that took place today. We were blessed with great weather for the weekend. Take a look at our coverage and feel free to post on any website. We did what we could without a media pass. :)

Jim’s Forester XT Sports on 18×9 Rota G-Force - Cosmic Blue

Owner: Jim
Car: 2008 Subaru Forester XT Sports
Wheels: Rota G-Force 18×9 +35 - Cosmic Blue

At first, I wasn’t sure what other cars would look good with Cosmic Blue. I know one thing’s for sure, Diamond Grey Metallic looks nice! Subaru only made one batch of these Diamond Grey Metallic beauties for the final year of this particular chassis of Foresters before they started the current and bigger generation. I really miss the XT Sports models with the bad ass front bumpers and STi badged lip and wheels. C’mon Subaru!

08 WRX on 18×9 Rota G-Force - Gunmetallic

Customer: Dennis Wang
Car: 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: Rota G-Force 18×9 +35 5×100 - Gun Metallic

Here’s a customer with a sense of humor on his custom license plate, “FWD FTL”. Not that we condone hatin’ on front wheel drive cars, I just thought it was funny. Nicely done ride with subtle mods like the front lip, hatch wing, rear diffuser, red tinted tail lights, and front grill.

Mazda3 on 18×8.5 Rota G-Force - Gold

Owner: JoePa2624 (mazdas247.com thread here)
Car: 2009 Mazda 3
Wheels: Rota G-Force 18×8.5 +48 - Gold
Tires: Bridgestone Potenza RE960 225/40/18
Suspension: Eibach Pro-Kit springs (Gen. 2)

It was a nice sunny day, so our customer, Joe, whipped out his cell phone to snap some quick pics for us and shared it on mazdas247.com!

2010 Legacy GT on 18×9 Rota G-Force Wheels - Steel Gray

Customer: Lewis R
Car: 2010 Subaru Legacy GT
Wheels: Rota G-Force 18×9 +35 - Steel Grey

I do believe this is the first, if not one of the first, 2010 Legacys on Rota wheels. Gotta use up those new, meatier fenders in the Legacy redesign!

Car: Mazdaspeed 3
Wheels: Rota G-Force 18×8.5 +48 - White

The red lugs gives this MS3 a really nice touch. Red on white always looks great. Small details makes a pretty good difference.

Ian’s WRX on 18×9″ Rota G-Force Wheels - Gunmetallic

Customer: Ian Weber
Car: 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: Rota G-Force 18×9 5×100 +35 - Gunmetallic

These wheels have been out for a while, but the fitment is classic. It’s the wheel that started it all here at Wheeldude for the 9″ and up “Concave City” for Subarus.

Evo X on 18×9″ Rota G-Force Wheels - Gunmetallic

Customer: S├ębastien Jacques
Car: Mitsubishi Evo X
Wheels: Rota G-Force 18×9 +30 - Gun Metallic

G-Force lookin’ tight on this Evo X!

Mazdaspeed3 on a set of 18×8.5 Rota G-Forces! Not much to say here, this pic is explanatory. These aren’t just for 05+ STi’s anymore.
