Center Line RT1X wheels on Starwood's Jeep Wrangler steal the show!

Article by Christian A., on December 5, 2016

A custom-made Jeep Wrangler wearing Center Line’s RT1X wheels was seen recently in the Lucas Oil offroad Expo in Pomono, California. In this event, Starwood Motors enticed their audience with Centre Line wheels and seems to have captivated the majority. It’s one of those moments when all eyes are stuck on the wheels.

Starwood Motors has teamed up with Center Line to build a new beast. We know how wheels can be more useful for off-road vehicles so this comes as no surprise. But let’s face the fact that some vehicle brands and tuning specialists have already shied away from offering their own take on wheels. Most have relied on partnership and have been pushing after market fitments instead. This probably led to Starwood and Center Line’s latest collaboration.

Since the Jeep Wrangler is a conventional off-road naked SUV, the team has worked doubly hard to create a new impression of power, strength and durabilty. While it looks similar to other Jeeps, Starwood Motors’ white and black Jeep Wrangler isn’t boring.

The newly placed Center Line Wheels no doubt add more functionality to the SUV. The 5-spoke RT1X on the front and rear measures 10 x 20 and comes with bright red trims and matte black outer lips. This new set of wheels is fitted with Nitto Grappler tyres measuring 37/12.5 R20.

Basically, the whole body was built from scratch. The white body paint is not ordinary white. The white Kevlar coat on the AEV heat reduction hood was sanded evenly to achieve brightness. Starwood Motors equipped the once conservative Jeep Wrangler with a meaner looking Rampage 3D grille and an off-road Targa hardtop. Rubicon logos are placed on the sides of the hood while the bulging area around the middle is painted in black with red border.

The tough looking SUV is enhanced by Poison Spyder JK Brawler bumper and Brawler Bar while Black Bentley Mulsane headlights complete the off-road look at the front. Also seen here are the 4-inch LED lights along the A-pillar and also at the bumper.

Aside from the XRC body cladding, the rugged rear end also comes with the Poison Spyder Rock Brawler II Bumper with tyre carrier. Some of the SUV’s custom accessories include Recon tail lamps, black door handles and AMP Power Steps.

Starwood Motors has also equipped the Jeep Wrangler with new steering stabilisers, ProCal tuning module, coil springs and Superflex short arm lift kit for the suspension. For its interiors, the custom designers used Black Macho Cinturino for the Nappa leather and used some red pipings and stiches for contrasting design.
