Introduced to the mainstream during the Mike Jones/Paul Wall Hip Hop era, this is one style in custom car culture that didn’t really gain popularity in any other part of the country besides the ‘Third Coast’. The unique 15″ wire wheels were originally on certain ’83 and ’84 Cadillacs (hence the term 83z, 84z) but went out of production for years making them a hot commodity in Houston and Austin especially. Texan Wire Wheel started producing them again and stayed up with the times upping the inches with wheels available up to 22″ and are usually best paired with Vogue Tires. Swangas have started to pop up in music videos again like on the super clean Caddy in Big K.R.I.T’s Country Sh*t remix. What do you think about this distinct style?
The net has been buzzin’ about Junction Produce‘s Rolls Royce Phantom that was captured at a recent car show by a Stance Nation photog. It has the Junction Produce body kit (which is probably insanely expensive), staggered 24″ Scara wheels (that for whatever reason cost about $30 stacks) and has a serious stance on it. We’re not sure if its bagged or if it has some type of coilovers, regardless, it’s stting just right.
