10 of the Best Aftermarket Wheels for Your Car
Jun 23, 2016 - 10:39 AM - by

Nothing changes the look of your car like a new set of wheels, and the right rim can make or break the appearance of a car.

Out of the zillions of combinations out there, here are 10 aftermarket wheels — both old and new — that we think really stand out.

OZ Racing Ultraleggera

A racing wheel needs to do more than just look good: It needs to reduce unsprung weight and provide airflow for cooling, while providing enough strength for the abuse of the track. OZ Racing is known for its lightweight wheels, and the Ultraleggera (Italian for ultralight), the latest iteration of their classic racing wheel, offers good looks and good performance.

Shop for OZ Racing Ultraleggera wheels here.

American Racing Torq Thrust

We like the old-school look of the Torq Thrust. Introduced in the mid-1960s, this was the wheel that made swapping out wheels a thing. Designed for drag racing, the Torq Thrust is designed to minimize weight and provide maximum brake cooling (important in the days of non-power-assisted drums). Today, it gives a handsome old-school look to any muscle car, street rod or restomod.

Enkei RP03

We love the simple five-spoke look, and the Enkei RP03 shows how good it can look, with spokes that reach to the edge of the rim to make the wheels look even larger. The RP03 comes from Enkei’s racing lineup, so it’s light and durable as well as being handsome.

Shop for your set of Enkei RP03 wheels here.

BBS Super RS

BBS is a German manufacturer that has supplied original equipment wheels to just about every major European and Japanese automaker. The forged-aluminum RS, with its cross-spoke design, became an icon of performance in the ‘80s and ‘90s. The wheel is still offered in an updated version called the Super RS, a good choice if you want to capture a vintage performance look.

American Racing AR39

You want 1990s? Friends, it doesn’t get any more 1990s than this. The AR39 was clearly a passing fad, and the company has long since dropped them from their catalog, but you can still find them if you’re willing to do some digging. They go great with a Metallica T-shirt.

5 Dope Wheels for Your Volkswagen
Jun 15, 2016 - 10:16 AM - by

The right wheel can make or break a car, and when it comes to Volkswagens, some wheels simply work better than others.

When it comes to wheels for your Volkswagen, here are five choices that we think will enhance the look of any VW.


BBS wheels have strong ties to German performance, particularly the RS, which was a staple of the 1980s. For a modern-day VW, we like the RS-GT, which takes the basic theme of the RS and gives it a modern, updated look.

Available in a wide variety of finishes, bolt patterns and widths, the RS-GT can be had in 18, 19 and 20-inch diameters.

Shop for your BBS RS-GT wheels here.

OZ Allegerita

We like a lot of OZ wheels, and the Allegerita is a favorite of ours, not only for its clean, lightweight look, but for the broad variety of color choices — everything from basic silver, black and white to electric blue, lime green and bright orange. In total, there are 10 different colors to choose from with sizes ranging from 16- to 18-inches. This is a functional wheel that will add lots of visual interest to your VW.

Shop for your OZ Allegerita wheels here.

Enkei FD05

The double-spoke look works well Volkswagen sedans and hatchbacks, and we like the way the Enkei FD05 carries it off—there’s just enough detail in the spokes to add some visual interest (with both black and gunmetal finishes, so you can decide how much attention to draw to the spokes), and enough open space to show off the binders.

The Enkei FD05 is available in 15- to 18-inch diameters.

Shop for your Enkei FD05 wheels here.

Borbet CA

If you haven’t got big brakes on your VW, you might want to close up the openings in the wheel a bit, and that’s something the Borbet CA does nicely—it’s a contemporary wheel that doesn’t give too much of a peek behind the curtain, and it looks great with most of VW’s body styles. Sizes range from a tiny 14-inches up to 17-inches in diameter.

Plain Steel

If you’re willing to get a bit creative, the plain-jane steel wheel can work really... [Read More]

Volkswagen Wants to Build a Tesla Model 3 Fighter
Jun 08, 2016 - 4:48 PM - by

It looks like VW plans on building a Tesla Model 3 fighter.

VW is going all-out with electrification, according to German car magazine Auto Bild. The Wolfsburg-based automaker has responded to the dieselgate scandal by investing heavily in new zero-emissions models.

One of the signature models of this new slate of EVs will be what VW currently calls the CUVe (Coupe Utility Vehicle) which will compete in the market against the upcoming Tesla Model 3. The model will come in two different guises, a bulkier SUV as well as a longer, sportier variant. The SUV will largely mimic the current Tiguan while the sportier version will be 30 cm longer and take its inspiration from the Tiguan CC. The CUVe models are slated to debut in 2019.

Auto Bild also reported that the production version of the BUDD-e microbus concept, which VW introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, will be named the e-Bulli. Perhaps a name change will come if the microbus is brought to the North American market. The e-Bulli is also scheduled to debut in 2019.

As we reported earlier, VW is developing a BMW i3 fighter as part of its EV plan, which will be slated below the CUVe in the model offering. At the top end of the
