It wouldn’t be fair to show you the #wheel without the #fitment especially when it is this killer! As we mentioned previously these #wheels are just not for any old car & this #bmw #m4 is fair from any old. To pull off this fitment @wheelsboutique used a @vorsteiner #widebody kit & combination of @accuair & @hpdrivetech airbag suspension parts to create a truly epic M4. We #love what Wheels Boutique & owner @bucky44 have built, it’s clean & classy while being attention grabbing & loud. Would you have it?

More pics of the insanity that is @callmiro’s latest #charger in the build. What do you think of these #wheels & this #fitment?

We couldn’t help but post a couple pics of @callmiro’s 68 Charger to follow up the video posted previously. This is a great example of fitted wheels normally associated with a completely different genre & it working extremely well, for most people anyway. A little birdie told us about the offset measurements on these wheels & they are massively in the negative range to allow that mixture of #deepdish & #concave. We #love these @rsvforged wheels & are hungry to see even more progress pictures.

Now this is a very unique design from @radi8wheels, do you like it?

We often talk about designs that think outside the square & don’t follow the norm like some of the rest of the industry. These are the designs that cause #love or #hate reactions & ultimately push the industry to try new things. This design from @radi8wheels is one that definitely pushes the boundaries & it is very hard for us to describe it. If we had to try & describe this #wheel it is a mixture of fat 5 spokes with cuts combined with an almost turbo fan out ring plus a directional element on the centre section. However you describe it, it certainly is different & we have to say we like it a lot.

Now these custom #wheels are insane! Would you have them on your #mercedes?

Every so often a set of wheels come along that are truly on another level. They are normally not from a main stream #wheel company & often are a completely custom creation made from some odd ball wheel. This is exactly what @nico_2polished has created here with the wheels on his Mercedes, a one off head turning, internet breaking set of wheels. They were created using a 16” Mercedes Benz Centra monoblock wheel that was converted into a 17” 3 piece spilt wheel. We really #love this wheel for it’s unique approach & the amount of work that went into creating it.

When genres collide & break the internet! Are you a fan of this #slammed #ferrari 348?

Now this car isn’t by any means new & broke the internet a few months ago but we thought it was worth a feature & discussion. We have spoken in the past about fitting #wheels from different genres on non traditional fitments & how this trend has been gaining momentum recently. This Ferrari takes it a step further by not only fitting up @workwheelsjapan VSXX wheels but also going with the all out #stanced camber styling that has been popular in recent years. While we now this #fitment & stance isn’t for everyone, we have loved this car since we first laid eyes on it. —————————————————

Now this design is different, are you a fan of it?

With every new #wheel brand that hits the market comes another opportunity for a unique range of designs, some that will be successful & some that simply won’t. There really hasn’t been a better time in history to start a wheel company with an ever growing market & access to so many quality manufacturers. It is always positive to see the market growing with new #wheels & companies. This design from @radi8wheels grabbed our attention for it’s full face style that almost looks like it came straight off a #hotwheels car. The design takes on most of the current styling trends with a directional element & #concave profile to go along with the bold design. We have to say we think this design is pretty cool & can see it being popular with people looking to grab mountains of attention.

Now this is a very different #wheel choice compared to what we are normally used to seeing on a #mclaren #675lt. Would these @bbs.wheels be your choice?

Certains cars attract certain brands of #wheels & therefore certain fitments that often become the standard or go for anyone with that car. When you see the same thing over & over again you end up just expecting that & then when you see something different it is either “that’s not right” or “wow thats different, I like that”. When we first sore some teaser pics of @koshesq’s Mclaren with the @bbs.wheels FIR’s on it we loved it for being different from the norm. Their open face thin split spoke design works perfectly on this #supercar while the bronze finish is a nice contrast against the grey paint. This is a real testament to @platinum_group’s ability to think outside the square for killer & different fitments. —————————————————

Education time - Tag a friend who needs to learn more about #wheel offsets.

We often speak about offset when describing #wheels. It relates to the position of the wheel centre within the barrel in relation to the centre line of the wheel. There are 3 different offsets that are commonly referred to, positive, zero & negative offset. The picture shows each of them & the relationship each has with the amount of back spacing. Would you like to see more educational posts like this on The Offset?

When a #classic #wheel style meets a #modern finish colour the results can be spectacular! These #acschnitzer type 3’s have been refinished in a combination of brushed & matte candy #red with matte black inner barrels by @sdwheels with the results being truly neck breaking. Refurbishing #retro or older wheels has become a very popular trend as more people look to have a unique set of #wheels on their ride without going for the more expensive #custom high end market. It’s cool to see these older wheels kept alive & updated like this. Do you #love seeing this or would you prefer more classic colours?

Are you a full face #wheel fan or do you prefer the open face style?

Everybody has their preference as to what they like when it comes to wheel face styles. This preference is often formed based on the genre of car/truck that you prefer as the wheel style goes hand in hand with it. The full face wheel design has been around for a long time, it has at times been a great option for those who wanted to hide their brake packages but it is really the perfect design for making an impact. This wheel from @messer_wheels is everything a full face design should be, big, bold & with the centre finishing right up against the wheel lip to maximise the impact. While we aren’t the biggest full face wheel fans, we do #love this fat star shape.

The ultimate in designer furniture for a #wheel lover. Would you have this as your #coffee table in your house? ————————————————— For a lot of people anything automotive or automotive parts related does not belong in the house, it belongs in the garage, in a storage unit or some remote location miles from the home all together. But if you are even a little bit of a car person you will want to show it off, for you it’s a talking point, it is something you work hard for & therefore something you are proud of. In the case of #wheels they can make great decorator pieces in a car lovers house. The wheel #coffeetable is a very popular option, they not only taking pride of place in your living room or #mancave but also being a very functional item. We #love wheel coffee tables & really need to build a rad one for ourselves! —————————————————

Now this just works! What do you think of this #bentley #wheel on this #audi #s8?

We featured the Ferrari wheel on the VW Golf the other day & people asked if we could feature more of these OEM wheel fitments onto different brands of cars then the wheel. It is one of those interesting trends as when it’s done right it makes such a huge impact. The #wheels become that talking point of the show or cruise & in most cases going onto break the internet. While we have seen the Bentley wheel #fitment in the past it just seems to work so very well on the big body Audi especially when it #slammed on the deck like this. We #love this wheel selection a lot & hope to see more of them in the future!

Tag a mate would needs these #ferrari #wheels on their #vw #golf.

Bit of an interesting take on #ferrarifriday with this #fitment of Ferrari wheels on this VW golf. This is one of those #wheel trends that kind of took hold & kind of didn’t in some ways with people fitting #supercar wheels onto cars from the small #euro genre. For those that did add some supercar wheels to their euro the result was maximum impact & attention grabbing factor. This golf here from @pati_r8 is the perfect example of this trend with these Ferrari wheels finished in carbon fibre as well as the brakes to match. We are surprised we don’t see more fitments like this one as there would be plenty of OEM Ferrari wheels around just waiting for a second chance to snap necks.

Sometimes the #wheels can end up being the star of the show even when the rest of the car is equally as impressive. We often say that wheels can make or break a car & we have all seen what happens when they break a car. When they make a car there are people 10 deep wanting a picture, flooding social media, talking with their friends about them & ultimately wanting them on their own car. These @rsvforged wheels on @jacobdepares #slammed #evo have that ability to make people stop & stare with their directional design element & knock out copper finish. It’s fair to say that @builttoorder & RSV Forged nailed it with these wheels. We #love wheels being the star of the show. Tag a friend who needs some wheels to be the main attraction on their ride.

Are you a fan of this #wheel from @artinmotionwheels?

This is the wheel we featured recently in the video where it was on the lathe as the finish was being completed by @robertsowka. The design is a very unique one that is an interesting take on the mesh style which made is up of a combination of triangle, diamond & rectangle shapes which make a full face wheel. Along with this there is multiple directional elements add to the design which make it almost look like it is turning while siting still. For many it will be a #love or #hate design, for us it is a love for being so very different & we can’t wait to see them fitted up.

We just had to follow up the previous post with a #fitment pic, would you have selected this #wheel for this car?

We have spoken in the past about how the #wheels need to work with the car, they need suit the build style/genre while complimenting the rest of the car. Sometimes with wilder builds there is a tendency to try & make the wheels just as crazy as the rest of the car which can end in disaster. Here the selection of these @rollofaceusa wheels work perfectly with the crazy #widebody design of this BMW. We don’t think we could have made a better selection for wheels, they just work so well with the rest of the build.

Now this is #monster dish! Or is that a dish full of monster?

This is one of those #wheel trends that we really do not understand, stacking your #deepdish #wheels with loads of cans of your favourite beverage. Sure it is one way to show off how much dish you have but it is also a great way of damaging the finish on your wheel if you are not careful. Plus is hides the best part of your wheel, the centre, which we all know is the money shot! Would you display your wheels like this at a show?

Do you like 6 spoke #wheels or would you prefer to stick with 5 spoke versions?

When it comes to #wheel designs it seems that odd combinations of spokes tends to be the norm & even combinations look some what out of place. This is the exact opposite to the rest of life where most things are in even amounts. The 6 spoke wheel design is one that is kind of popular with most brands but still rare enough not to have flooded the market. Whenever you see a 6 spoke design your brain says, “Yep 5 spoke wheel”, then proceeds to continue on it’s way until it then says, “Hang on a minute, there is another spoke there” & then stops you for a longer look. This 6 spoke design from @vipmodular is new to their range & is a perfect example of that double take you do. While we will always #love the 5 spoke style it is refreshing to see 6 spoke designs on the market.

Now this is an interesting mix of designs to creating a very eye catching #wheel. Are you a fan of it?? Of late we are seeing more & more design styles mixed together in a bid to push the industry in new directions & create attention grabbing #wheels. The cross between fuller face & open face, spoke designs is happening more & more with varying degrees of success. The issue is you can create a design that becomes very busy when you attempt to create something different. This wheel from @damnraw_forged is a great example of getting it right with the multi-spoke upper layer laid over the top of the motorsport inspired/turbo fan bottom layer. While there is a lot to take in, it isn’t over that top or demanding, we have to say #love this wheel. —————————————————

The OG #turbofan that started the craze! Tag a mate who would #love them on their #bmw.

It’s great to see all the #modern versions of the turbo fan aero cover on the market but the original still manages to command the most attention at shows, cruises & on the street. It’s a combination of their rarity & racing heritage that makes the @bbs.wheels #turbofans such a massive draw card. While some will argue that this was never their intended purpose we still love seeing them on a #slammed ride like this one & pissing off the racing purists!
