For Wheel Wednesday we bring you an eye-catching 1979 Pontiac Firebird built by Tony Scalicci. This radical street machine is outfitted with an Eaton Supercharged LSA making 722 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. The motor also wears a set of Clayton Machine Works LS Coil Covers. Stitches custom upholstery by Tony Miller crafted the incredible interior, retaining elements of the Pontiac’s original style while carrying a slick honeycomb theme throughout. We built a set of our pro touring Snowflake wheels in sizes 18×10 front and 18×12 rear and finished them with a brushed matte gold powder coat. The wheels are wrapped in BF Goodrich g-force rival tires in sizes 315/35R18 front and 335/30R18 rear. The BFG tires and Boze forged wheels really make a great combination!

This awesome 1969 pro touring camaro belongs to Ed Borges (owner of Eddie Motorsports in Rancho Cucamonga California). Ed’s camaro was featured in Chevy High Performance magazine last month. One of the most important features of a pro touring restomod is the right set of wheels. Ed reached out to Boze looking for a nice set of pro touring wheels to give his camaro the perfect look and stance. We built a set of our Victory forged wheels in sizes 18×8 front and 18×10 rear. His wheels are wrapped in Nitto NT555 tires, sizes 245/40R-18 front and 285/35R-18 rear. The wheels are finished with a brushed satin and polished two-tone finish on the centers and high polished lips. Ed’s camaro sits on Speedtech Performance suspension accompanied by Viking adjustable coilover shocks. For stopping power Ed decided to go with a set of Wilwood 4 piston brakes. This camaro is also equiped with a nice stereo system. The head unit is a Kenwood Excelon KDX-X300 with 6×9-inch speakers. The body work was done by Paul Smoot of PSI autobody in Ontario California. If you didn’t get a chance to see the feature than be sure to check out these pictures below taken by Robert Mcgaffin photography. Enjoy!
This may be the most Beautiful 1960 Restomod corvette we’ve ever seen. The attention to detail on this build is absolutely top notch! This corvette was built for a customer in London who wanted that distinctive British look of a Bentley. We built a set of our Boze Injected forged wheels with a high polish finish. We used hidden hardware to construct the wheels so the bolts are hidden behind the wheel flange. This gives them a really clean look but still has the resemblance of pro touring corvette wheels. The back wheels may look wider but they’re actually the same width as the front wheels. The wheels are 18×7″ on all four corners. We used a shorter mounting pad on the rear wheels along with a lower offset to give the wheels a nice deep dish. This staggered stance makes this beauty look like a pro touring corvette! It’s not everyday you see a nice pro touring corvette with so much style!

When it comes to stopping powder Quinn chose Wilwood 6 piston brakes. His Camaro also has a Speedtech Performance Suspension. If you’re out at a hot rod show or autocross event be sure to look for this awesome Pro Touring camaro.
We just finished another set of our Torque concave 3 piece wheels. The wheels are finished with our brushed satin and polished two-tone and are built on our deep concave center forging. One of the nice things about our concave wheels is the large brake caliper clearance. If a customer is running a 4 piston or six piston willwood brake or baer brake, our concave forged wheels will clear without a problem. Another nice feature about our concave wheel profile is the large cross section thickness, which gives us the ability to machine a thin spoke and still keep a high wheel load rating. This helps us make really strong light weight wheels. Boze has been building forged wheels for over 20 years and we’re seeing a lot of our customer go to our concave designs. This set of Torque wheels is going on a pro touring mustang for a customer in Florida. Check back here in a few weeks and we’ll have pictures of this set of wheels on the customers car.
Boze is proud to introduce our new “Performance Series” line of wheels. The performance series are light weight wheels made from the finest 6061 T6 forged aluminum. These stepped-lip 2 piece wheels are designed for muscle car and pro touring applications. The Step lip design not only looks good but helps reduce overall wheel weight. We build these wheels with a convex profile center forging so clearing large brakes is not a problem, whether it be a large Wilwood brake, Baer brake or any other large brake manufacturer. These performance forged wheels are available in diameters 17″, 18″, 19″ and 20″. The wheels pictured below are finished with brushed satin centers and high polished lips, this is just one of the many finishes we offer. Some of our other popular finishes are ceramic matte bronze, matte gun metal, and satin black powder coat. All of our wheels are custom built so if you have a Hotchkis suspension, TCI suspension, Detroit Speed Suspension, Ridetech suspension or any other pro touring chassis, our wheels can be build with any backspace to accommodate the proper fitment. If you’re building a pro-touring restomod, classic truck, or any other type of classic car, these are the wheels for you!
