Over the past year I have dad the pleasure of watching Sheedy’s beautiful GT350 all over the internet and social media. Chances are that by now you probably have as well. Even more interesting was watching his gradual increase in driving skill on track. It seemed like Sheedy went from 1-2 track events on street tires to full slicks overnight. For anyone that has been on track you know that there is nothing like it, and some of us just can not shake the feeling. I am not sure what the tipping point was for Patrick, but I was lucky to be able to get the call when he decided a dedicated track wheel and tire setup was needed. With the recent release of our Signature Reserved Series wheels I knew this was the perfect opportunity to showcase what the new line could do.

What we have here is a 19x11 square rotatable wheel setup finished in Brushed Triple Black Tinted. 3D CNC work is utilized to cut an I-Beam into the side of the wheel spoke and reduce weight without sacrificing strength and stiffness. We also equipped the wheels with Anti-Slip Bead knurling to help reduce or eliminate tire rotation on the rim. Weights are falling in at approximately 21lbs per wheel.

To follow are pictures of Sheedy’s car in action at our most recent Signature Wheel Track Day at Willow Springs International Raceway. With it being the fastest track on the West Coast it was a fitting occasion to go out on his new Hoosier tires. Even after putting 4 wheels off track the wheels stood strong and came back for more. If you happen to catch Sheedy on the street or at the track be sure to say hello. He was a very humble guy and even helped with some instruction at our last track event. I am happy to know him, and you will be too.

Below are some specs on his car and modifications, so please enjoy.
