No Uni-Lugs or Unicorns found here

When you purchase a set of wheels from Chris Coddington and Hot Rods by Boyd you can be assured that everything is made to order. One little trick that the wheel industry in whole moved away from decades ago but some people still try to push on their customers is the Uni-lug pattern. This was a way to get 2 different bolt patterns out of one wheel by making an oblong lug hole and using specific lug nuts. While it saves the wheel company lots of money by cutting their inventory in half it’s at the expense of the consumers safety and the vehicles ride. At Hot Rods by Boyd all our wheels are drilled with the conical seat lug drill and drilled to your specific pattern. The conical lug seat allows the wheel to get centered up on the lug hole this is especially helpful when you do not have an exact hub centric fitment. By using conical seat you eliminate some of the vibration problems and shearing of studs that can happen with improper use of uni lug drilled wheels. The industry moved away from the one size fits all approach years ago for this reason. Uni-lug is to the wheel industry what elastic waste bands are to the clothing industry. It’s all fine in the beginning but it’s just a matter of time before you are caught with your pants down. If someone is trying to sell you a so called custom wheel with a one size fits all approach just say no and get yourself a set of custom wheels that are made to order. below are two pictures of one size fits all drill and conical seat.

2013 Good Guys Del Mar

Another year and another great car show at Del Mar Fairgrounds put on by the Good Guys . The weather was beautiful as usual and there were tons of people at the show. We had all our new wheels on display and got some really good response on the new designs. Once again Gregg and I had the task of picking the recipient of the Boyd Coddington Memorial Award. This years winner was Joe Kugel with his sleek and tastefully done 32 Roadster. We loved the paint and the dark Ferarri-esque interior on this car. The F-22 wheels on the Kugel Suspension just make this little roadster sit right. Congrats Joe on a well done roadster that we’re sure our dad would have loved too.
Overall it was a good show. True story. We had reports earlier in the week that some of our competitors were a little nervous about us showing up with our new product and made calls to Good Guys to try and stop us from coming. How silly is that? I guess that’s what happens when everyone else is doing the same ol boring stuff and we’re out there trying to push new designs and new finishes.
We’d like to thank the Good Guys organization for allowing us to pay tribute to our father and continue his legacy. Good Guys is one of the greatest car show organizations on this planet and their shows always deliver. We’ll see you again next year.
