Before a new design or finish goes out the door, we give the wheel a bit of time in our photo studio. Unfortunately, we don’t always get to showcase all of these shots on our website. As part of a new series on this blog, we will begin profiling specific wheels from our lineup to give you an up close look at the details of each of our designs.
This time around, we will be profiling our F140 shown in a 19×10″ fitment. Since this is the first feature, we’re going to start off simple and showcase the Brushed Polished finish. Although the F140 typically comes standard with Titanium Hardware, this specific wheel has been outfitted with our optional chrome-plated hardware. Another extra option outfitted to this wheel is the one piece aluminum CNC-machined center cap that was brushed to match the wheel.
Oftentimes, it is hard to see the details of a finish when you’re looking at a full wheel shot. Our intention with this series is to showcase the finer details in our wheels.
Leave a comment or drop by our Facebook page to let us know which wheel you’d like to see detail shots of next!
The completely redesigned F130 will be making its debut at Formula Drift Long Beach.
With less than 24 hours to go until the technical inspection, Toshiki Yoshioka and his team have a LONG night ahead in order to get his BRZ together. We are very thankful that he took some time out this morning to let us stop by and interrupt their work while we snapped a few shots of his new weapon of choice for the 2013 season.
Stay tuned for more updates or stop by Toshi’s page to see how things are progressing: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Toshiki-Yoshioka/257267864321166?fref=ts
We’ll see you guys at Long Beach!
We had a customer drop by recently to test fit and install a set of our wheels. Luckily for us, he was kind enough to let us shoot his completely new Model S on couple other sets before deciding which ones he would go with.
Which setup would you choose?

The F140 2P is a 2-piece welded assembly wheel that is CNC machined from fully forged aluminum. Available in a 16″ sizes (16×7.0 / 16×8.0 / 16×9.5); pricing is slotted in between our AVANT GARDE cast line and our AG Function / Form 3PC lines to provide a wheel with the ideal strength-to-weight ratio at a fraction of the price.
Available with full polished step lip rim shells, the F140 2P center disc can be painted or powder coated to ANY custom finish.
Additional details and specifications will be available soon.
You guys have asked for more M510 fitments, and now we’re happy to announce the new 19″ sizes!
We are also releasing a lower offset 20×10″ ET25 for the guys over on Audizine who have been asking for something a bit more aggressive.
For our dealers who have been patiently waiting, the new sizes will be coming in at the end of this week!
With today being the last day of 2012, we’d like to take some time to look back on a great year here at Avant Garde!
First and foremost, we need to thank our intelligent customers, dependable dealers/distributors, and loyal fans who we owe all of our success to. In the last year, we have gone from another obscure wheel company to a prominent and respected force in the industry. With the launch of our AG Function and AG Form wheel lines, we are now in position to offer higher end, custom forged wheel options to our more discerning clientele. To those looking for a performance oriented wheel without eating into your life savings, we have added a few new designs within the last year to our Avant Garde cast wheel line as well.
We have many big plans for the next year including moving into our new, much larger facility where we can continue to grow along with our customers and dealers. For 2013, be on the look out for more designs and breakthroughs in our manufacturing which will provide our customers with more options in terms of costs and performance.
Thank you all again for your continued support, and we look forward to the next year of new opportunities!
Below, we have chosen our favorite photo shoot from each month of the last year.
Infest Forum recently did a feature on ONEighty’s G37 Sedan on our 19×9.5″ fitment M550 wheels in the Dolphin Grey finish. C3 Photography (www.c3-photo.com) did an awesome job on the photos and video for the feature. You can check out the video below.
