Every now and then, I’m graced with the presence of someone famous. This was one of those times, as I had the pleasure of completing this tire mounting project for a popular Instagram comedian. Aside from shining light on the funnier side of Asian culture, Allen is also a fan of “slamming Teslas” on 3-piece aftermarket wheels.
Allen decided to have a custom set of 20×9.5 GMR Wheels built by VR Wheels just for his ride. Here they are, still in their lip-protection wrapping.
I carefully mounted this set of wheels with Nexen Roadian GTX Tires, a nice combination of affordability, quality, and name-brand recognition. The tire fitment sat slightly stretched, nothing too crazy, but just enough to fit under the fenders of Allen’s Model Y, with the bags aired out.
Here’s how the car looks lowered on the wheels. Very nice! At this stance, a Model Y goes from looking like an SUV to almost like a car, or at least a cross-over.
If you’d like some wheels like these, call VR Wheels and ask for either Phil or Jack. You can tell them Mike at Goodnight Tire Service sent you 🙂
