We recently had an opportunity to dress up a vintage supercar and a nostalgic favorite among motorheads…an all-original 1996 Acura NSX-T in the super rare PB-73P, also known as Midnight Purple Pearl. This particular car had been sitting dormant in a barn for the last 6 years, until the current owner got hold of it and decided to restore it to its former glory. After about $15,000 in maintenance and another $2,000 in paint correction and ceramic coating, it was then time for the owner to turn his attention to the wheels.
Because we wanted to keep everything looking period-correct, we chose a design from our Heritage series that would have been en vogue during the late 90s/early 00s. After careful consideration and a bit of back-and-forth, we decided on the M15 3-piece 10-spoke design, finished in the the classic Brushed finish with Gloss Clearcoat and a Chrome outer lip. The wheels measure 18×8 front and 19×10 rear, and are mated to Hankook Ventus V12 rubber in sizes 225/40/18 front and 275/30/19 rear. The vehicle was also lowered via a set of TEIN coilovers.
This project was a fun one and we are glad to have been able to play a part in it…hope you enjoy the results as much as we do!!
