Rolls Royce Solution

David Snowden - Thursday, October 01, 2015
How can you put a set of custom wheels on a Rolls Royce without the factory floating center piece!!!

Here at MINT we were fascinated with the way Rolls Royce engineered a floating center cap.  It seems we are the only ones that found a proper solution which integrated the factory cap into custom wheels.

Above you can see that we matched the MINT billet cap to the factory Black Kirsch paint.

Voila!  MINT caps ready to be put together after painted.  Caps ready to be finished to the customers likening. 
Keep checking back we will be posting a video of the car after the wheels are installed.

Yard House...TAKE II

The founder of the popular restaurant, The Yard House, chooses MINT on all of his sleds.  Mr. Platt is a man of vision, as he created one of the world's most unique concepts in dining.  His restaurants boast a selection of over 250 drafts of beer, which can be served in the famous yard glass.  The yard glass stands 3 ft tall, hence its name and is sure to get the job done.  In his garage, we mounted his first set of wheels off his Mercedes S 550, a set of wheels influenced by the yard glass.  Each spoke is an exact replica of the yard glass with his company logo engraved at the end of each spoke.  When it came time for a new ride, he still had to keep 'em insight.

The center caps were engraved with his Yard House logo.

The founder of Mossimo clothing loves his MINTs.

When fashion mogul, Mossimo, was searching for the look he wanted, he turned to MINT to create his vision.  He started off by showing us some pictures of archaic military vehicles which rode on plain steel wheels.  We laughed and debated back and forth for roughly two weeks until he decided on what you see now.  If MINT can make one of the world's best clothing designers content, hopefully we can accommodate just about anyone.  Thanks Mossimo.

Mossimo's G Wagon fitted with 24" custom MINT Wheels with gloss black centers and matching lips.

Some specialty caps to put the icing on the cake...

More than meets the eye. As you can see, we wanted to run with simple styling, yet we were not happy with the weight.  So, we removed the dead weight from the backside of the center, and pocketed out as much excess material which could be safely removed to lighten these babies up!
