Triple Crown
Christmas Caroling Gone Wild

Photography by Jasper Ash


Occasionally we find a great looking IS that we’d love to feature. Then there’s Christmas morning when I wake up to find this seasonal trio of sexy low and wide cars.

The family at State of Stance must have been nice this year for us to get such a great gift (Well at least that’s what the big guy thinks…). So we bring you this holiday greeting and wishes of a Happy New Year courtesy of JR Panganiban, Gustavo Padilla, and Peter Pham.


Take a moment to appreciate the static height at which these beauties roam the streets. Peter and JR choose 19s, Volk and Work respectfully; while Gustavo is rocking a set of 20” Strasse Forged.


These guys are not just about the lower|wider™ look, just take a glimpse at the long list of mods each is sporting. Attention to detail has not gone overlooked.
