Appleton, Wisconsin-based wheel manufacturer Rohana Wheels has found a unique way to market its new aftermarket wheels: by staging a fake police chase in Los Angeles with a customized C8 Corvette Stingray.
This wheel commercial is a lot different than the ones we usually see. Most YouTube ads for aftermarket alloys that we come across feature a custom car riding through a graffitied city and are set to some hip hop or electronic music, but Rohana’s trades the cityscape for the 110 freeway in Los Angeles, and the beats for a police siren. The brief police chase scene even features a fake police radio overlay proclaiming the driver to be “armed and dangerous.” Thankfully, no one has been involved in an actual, filmed police chase in the C8 Corvette yet, but we get the feeling it’s only a matter of time before someone tries to evade law enforcement in the mid-engine sports car.
The car featured in this ad is an Arctic White example equipped with 19-inch Rohana RFG13 monoblock wheels and a Pandem rear wing. It’s also equipped with an aftermarket air suspension kit for adjusting the ride height on the fly. This allows the owner to get the desired stance they want for the vehicle while also being able to go over speed bumps and other obstacles without scraping the car’s entire underbody on the ground. We’re not sure if oversized wheels and air suspension is a great setup for evading the police, so it’s a good thing the chase was only staged.
