SSR Professor SP5 on Ford Mustang GT

The Professor SP5 is latest addition to the Professor 3 piece wheels family. The thin multi spoke design brings you a strong yet lightweight wheel  when compared to other 3 piece wheels in similar sizes. EJ Bieros used to own  WRX with Professor MS1s in Spectrum Silver and has since moved onto the S550 Mustang Platform. Wanting to stay loyal to the SSR family, he opted for the newest release in the same Spectrum Silver color. Running 20×9.5 in front and 20×10.5 in the rear, he was able to get a nice flush fitment and use a nice meaty tire as well. His good friend Alex Dahl came through with some awesome shots of the new setup so don’t forget to check his website to see the other work he’s done!

Tesla’s Next-Gen Roadster

Tesla’s continued quest for EV car dominance makes an announcement via a referral program for their upcoming next gen roadster. If you are a current Tesla owner and you refer 5 people to purchase a Tesla  you will receive 10% off the price but according to the wording, it seems like for every 5 additional referrals you’ll get an additional 10% off. So essentially if you refer 50 or more people to Tesla you could be eligible for a free Founder’s Series next gen Tesla Roadster. Not a bad deal.  Elon Musk has said the next Tesla Roadster will be the company’s fastest accelerating car to date and is expected to achieve a 0-60 in under 2 seconds with the Maximum Plaid mode.

Check out this the render timelapse of the Tesla Roadster.
