It’s not every day you see a wheel you absolutely fall in love with. It’s less likely to find a company manufacturing multiple wheels that steal your heart.
Yet here we are, admiring some of the best wheels on the market, and it’s time to spill the beans.
These are some of our favorite wheels from the genius minds behind Niche Road Wheels.
While some companies make wheels and hope customers enjoy them, Niche Road Wheels has taken the time to listen to customers and find out exactly what they want. From trucks and SUVs to sports cars, Niche has made a wheel that will fit your needs.
How do you understand exactly what customers want?
By producing what they ask for. Niche has been a leading manufacturer in custom, one of a kind wheels. This means top of the line milling and machining to get one of a kind designs.
This also means you can choose a wheel, with whatever lip or design you need. This makes Niche more than just another wheel company, allowing them to excel.
Before you purchase new wheels for your ride, you need to make sure they will actually fit.
When purchasing through Rent-A-Wheel, you are able to choose your car's make and model, and be presented with a list of wheels that meet your size needs.
In many cases, you need to understand your size. This starts with a lug nut pattern.
Lug nuts are what hold your wheel to your vehicle, and commonly come in 5, 6, or even 8 lug configurations. When shopping for new wheels, you need to know your bolt pattern. Bolt pattern refers to a measurement from the center of one stud to the center of another.
Depending on the bolt pattern, different studs are used for the measurements.
Counting around the lugs, on a 4 lug nut pattern, you would measure from lug 1 to lug 3 in the center of the bolts. On a 5 lug pattern, you would measure from studs 2 to 4. On a 6 lug pattern you would measure from studs 1 to 4. And on an 8 lug pattern from studs 1 to 5.
These lug measurements need to be accurate, but also fall within set specifications. For example, The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport uses a 5 x 108 lug pattern. This means there are 5 studs, with 108mm or 4.25 inches between stud 2 and 4.
When you purchase your vehicle, they come with a set size rim intended to use with a certain size tire. It’s important to understand your starting point.
These sizes will be displayed clearly on your tire, and may also be stamped on the wheel itself.
When looking at the tire, the wheel size will be part of the identification number. A wheel stamped with P 225 / 70 R 16 91 S would have a wheel size of 16 inches.
You can always purchase larger or smaller wheels, just keep in mind that if nothing else changes, such as tire or suspension, this could have an impact on your drivability.
Whenever purchasing new rims, it’s important to understand backspacing or offset. This will tell you where the mounting surface is in relation to your tire. If your tire sits too deep, you may have rubbing issues.
Backspacing is the measurement from the back of the tire to the hub mounting surface, while offset is the mounting surface compared to the center of the total width of the tire.
Now that you know what size wheels you want or need, let’s get to shopping some of the sexiest wheels on the market.
