A gath­er­ing of the lat­est and great­est

Your wheels are an ex­ten­sion of your per­son­al­ity, and, along with that, are af­ter­mar­ket ac­ces­sories that can change the way your car or truck looks. But with so many new re­leases flood­ing shelves, it’s dif­fi­cult to cover them all, so we’re high­light­ing a few of the most talked-about re­leases for 2018. Whether you’re af­ter a new look or re­ju­ve­nat­ing an older project car, th­ese lat­est of­fer­ings are sure to get your at­ten­tion. On that note, happy wheel hunt­ing and we’ll see you next year!

TURBO FANS

If you’re a fan of the nos­tal­gic look of “turbo fans” then you’ll be happy to know that Fif­teen52 will be re­leas­ing their own ver­sion of turbo fans for their Turbomac and In­te­grale wheels. Man­u­fac­tured in ABS plas­tic and car­bon fiber (cus­tom or­der), th­ese pre­view sam­ples are just a glimpse into what they’ve got in store. Avail­able in both 17- and 18-inch con­fig­u­ra­tions, th­ese much-needed ac­ces­sories are a must-have for the true wheel en­thu­si­ast. www.fif­teen52.com

THE METHOS M195

Carv­ing their niche into the mar­ket is the Methos (M195) wheel from Niche Wheels. Avail­able in 20 inches (with 9-, 10-, and 10.5-inch widths), the Methos open-spoke de­sign of­fers a breath of fresh air, while their at­ten­tion to de­tail will have you lost in its glory. The wheel is also com­pat­i­ble with BMW and Mercedes-benz caps, giv­ing you the op­tion to run with or with­out them. www.nicheroad­wheels.com

AN AR­SE­NAL THAT’S LOCKED & LOADED

Ar­se­nal is the lat­est mil­i­tary-in­spired wheel cre­ated by Black Rhino Wheels. With a mod­i­fied tac­ti­cal look, this in­no­va­tive style com­bines the look of mod­ern de­fense to bring an off-road char­ac­ter to the next level. The Ar­se­nal ex­hibits a bolted face upon chis­eled win­dows—a pow­er­ful look of force that is per­fect for the ad­ven­ture-minded over­land ex­plor­ers. This mod­ern style re­ally drills in the at­ti­tude of an in­de­struc­tible, ex­plo­sive-proof look to a whole new cal­iber. Avail­able in 17x9.5, 18x9.5, 20x9.5, and 20x12 sizes, the Ar­se­nal is sure to break necks and leave road ragers weary of your pres­ence. www.black­rhi­nowheels.com

CAR­BON-FIBER WHEELS

A joint ef­fort be­tween Emer­gent Car­bon Wheels and Forge­line, this new col­lab­o­ra­tion was launched as the “Car­bon+forged Series.” The two-piece, car­bon-fiber bar­rel and forged alu­minum cen­ter fea­tures light­weight car­bon-fiber bar­rels that uti­lize a high-den­sity carbonfiber bun­dle, a high-clar­ity resin sys­tem, and an un­usu­ally large car­bon weave pat­tern, mak­ing them vis­ually dis­tinc­tive and 42 per­cent lighter than equiv­a­lent-sized alu­minum wheels while ex­ceed­ing all ex­ist­ing SAE and TUV test specs while sur­pass­ing the AK-LH 08 Ra­dial Im­pact Test Stan­dard. Avail­able in 20- and 21-inch fit­ments, you can visit them on­line for more info. www.forge­line.com

LEVEL UP & FUEL YOUR FIRE

Avail­able in 17x9, 18x9, and 20x9 con­fig­u­ra­tions, the Fuel Podium (D617) is the lat­est re­lease from MHT Wheels. The clas­sic six-spoke de­sign of­fers a rugged ap­peal with a re­fined pres­ence and is shown here in a Matte Bronze fin­ish that sets it off. It’s the per­fect ad­di­tion to your truck or SUV, and once cou­pled to a set of all-ter­rain tires it’s game over and a far de­par­ture from stock. www.fu­elof­froad.com

SPORT LUX­URY RE­DE­FINED

Shown here in a Matte Bronze with a pol­ished Monaco Cop­per Lip, the Ro­ti­form SFO-T is a strik­ing wheel that can hold its own. With its strong an­gu­lar lines and multi-di­men­sional, open five-spoke de­sign, the SFO-T is the per­fect com­pan­ion to your high­line ve­hi­cle. With a va­ri­ety of fit­ments avail­able, each wheel can be cus­tom tai­lored to your lik­ing, so con­tact them for de­tails. www.ro­ti­form.com

OWN A PORSCHE 356? YOU’LL DEF­I­NITELY WANT TH­ESE.

The re­vival of clas­sic Porsches is at an all-time high, but with as many rein­car­na­tions as we’ve seen, there has been a lack of af­ter­mar­ket wheel op­tions—till now. Thanks to the gents at Ro­ti­form, the in­tro­duc­tion of their 356, three-piece forged wheel is now pro­vid­ing Porsche 356 own­ers all across the globe some­thing to dream about. Us­ing the finest 6061-T6 alu­minum forg­ings, each of their wheels can be tai­lored fit to your ex­act spec­i­fi­ca­tions, so catch a bud­get and break bread. www.ro­ti­form.com
