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
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
