The SEMA Show in Las Vegas for car enthusiasts is like a kid going to Disneyland for the first time. The products, the people and the cars at the show gives you a gasoline filled high that lasts for a week straight.

So when we put the call out for cars to sponsor, Sal Danley was quick to send us details about his 7L, Supercharged 2010 Dodge Challenger. We started reading his listed of modifications and we knew we had our car. ‘I’ve always had a passion for cars and customizing them,’ said Sal, the owner. ‘I purchased the car brand new in 2010 and I have been customizing it ever since.’

The list of modifications to Sal’s car is longer than a kid’s Christmas list to Santa, so here’s just a few of them:

Wheels, Tires & Brakes

Sal’s car attracted a lot of attention from the 130,000 attendees and we’re sure it was purely because of the BD-6 Wheels on this bad boy :-)

Sal's Challenger appears in numerous shows, so if you see him around, let him know you love his rims! Thanks Sal for putting our BD-6 rims on your awesome car and can’t wait to see what you have in store for it next!

The BD-6 wheel is available in a 20” and 22” staggered sizes, which are all engineered and manufactured to the strictest standards. They come in silver polished, matte graphite with machine face and full matte graphite and are perfectly hub centric to the tightest tolerances.
