Let's go over the basics.
All outer lips are raw steel
All inner barrels are raw aluminum
All centers are powder coated a color of your choice. Chart of colors can be found here.
All wheels leave our facility details, torqued, ready for tire unless we install those. If we install tires, due to the volatility of the tire market, matching tread pattern tires will be expertly mounted, balanced, along with new valve stems. Wheel and tires packages will be detailed to perfection before packaging.
Let's talk about what lips work with what and what the PRO's recommend. These are recommendations and not guarantees. You will need to check vehicle for fitment prior to ordering to ensure fitment is ideal for your ride.
Dealing with some of the finest wheels on the market, we know that it is difficult for some to attain them due to their cost and most of all, stay with in budget. With our knowledge in the "plus size wheels" side of the market, we wanted to create a wheel that would stay classic enough but still be cool. Introducing the 17" Smoothie!
Made in the USA, our 17" Smoothie passed DOT Specs and are now certified! The first aftermarket wheel in the VW industry with this certification!
