With the new year fast approaching, it is only apropos that we recap this year’s 2017 LA Auto Show before 2018! In case you are unfamiliar with the event, the LA Auto Show is one of the biggest automotive exhibition events in the nation. The show provides a variety of platforms for new and returning car manufacturers and aftermarket parts sponsors to exhibit their products and vehicles.


For this year’s 2017 exhibition, KEENDESIGN had a custom built Kia Stinger GT on display, with modifications by KEENDESIGN and Concept 3.

Upstairs, our aggressive and eye-catching custom red gloss KD07 wheels adorned a black Kia Stinger GT while downstairs, KEENDESIGN’s custom 21” monoblock forged wheels were exhibited on the West Coast Customs’ Kia Stinger GT build in the Kia Exhibition Center. The “WOW” factor of this pairing resonated so strongly with the spectators that it prompted a feature of KEENDESIGN on SuperStreet’s website and blog. You can read about it here: Has KDM Arrived?
