PRODUCT OF SUPREME AWESOMENESS
Having just added yet more sweet designs to their 45 (yes FORTY FIVE) strong Forged Series, it’s become downright impossible not to find a set of Niche hoops perfect for your pride and joy.
To be fair, there are enough options from the American wheel giant to make your noodle explode in spectacular style. We look at this stuff for a living and we’re having enough trouble getting our heads around it… and we’re only actually talking about their forged wheels here!
Niche manufacture literally hundreds of other Sport Series, Racing Series, Competition Series and Track Series wheel too. So, if you’re the sort of bloke who has trouble choosing between the Big Mac and McChicken Sandwich (or both – Jules), you simply don’t stand a chance here!
The best thing though, is that it’s unlikely anyone else will end up with exactly the same rims. Once you’ve decided on which centre you want lovingly machined from 6061-T6 forged aluminium, there’s a number of construction options, including Monoblock, 2-piece (bolted or welded) and 3-piece with a rolled or stepped lip. There’s also a massive range of profile options from convex to deep concave with elevated spokes.
Got all that? Good, because then there’s the final finish to consider – which is basically anything you can dream up. They sent us a few ‘quick’ examples and they include solid single tones, textures, liquid colour matching, multicoloured options, tinted and coloured transparent powders or liquid paints laid over intricate hand polished or brushed metal. Christ!
The last thing of course, is the sizes and, true to form, they offer perhaps the biggest range we’ve ever heard of. Unlike other forged wheels, all these designs are available in any diameter from 14-inches to a mind-blowing 26, and any width from 6-17 inches. 17x26-inch rims, anyone? I think I need to go for a lay down.
