Customize Your Wheels

All of the wheel components are customizable. From the wheel barrel, face plate, face plate bolts, beadlock, beadlock bolts and center cap. Choose from a variety of in stock powder colors. Need a custom color? We can order the exact color you are looking for.

Flat Face Vs Concave Face

The concave shape of the wheel can provide a sense of depth and dimension, making the wheel appear more three-dimensional and visually interesting. This can add a touch of sophistication to the design which makes it more attractive.

Concave wheels are relatively less common than flat-face wheels, so they can stand out and provide a unique and distinctive aesthetic that appeals to those seeking a custom or high-end look for their vehicles.

 Some may prefer the simplicity and classic look of a flat face wheel, while others may find the concave design more appealing

Face Finish - We offer multiple finishes on our wheels. Below are 5 of our popular finishes.


Beadlock Finish - We offer multiple finishes on our beadlock rings. Below are a few of our finishes


Custom Finishes on wheel faces and beadlock bolts. Standard colors are chrome and black, but we can powder coat them to any color.

Face Plate Bolts

The bolts hold the wheel center face on to the barrel. Standard colors are chrome and black. We can powder coat them pretty much any color you choose

Beadlock Ring Bolts

These bolts are used on the beadlock rings to secure the tire onto the wheel.


What's the difference between beadlock wheels and non-beadlock?

Beadlock wheels and non-beadlock wheels are two different types of wheel designs commonly used in off-road and high-performance vehicles. The main difference between them lies in how they secure the tire to the wheel.

Beadlock Wheels:
- Beadlock wheels have a special ring or clamp that bolts or clamps the tire's bead (the inner edge of the tire) to the wheel. This clamping action effectively "locks" the tire in place on the wheel.
- Beadlock wheels are typically used in off-road applications, such as rock crawling, mud bogging, or desert racing, where low tire pressures are common for better traction. The clamping action prevents the tire from coming off the wheel when the tire is aired down to very low pressures, which can help the tire conform better to the terrain and increase traction.
- Beadlock wheels provide added security and safety in extreme off-road conditions, as they reduce the risk of a tire debeading (coming off the wheel) and the potential for catastrophic failure.

Non-Beadlock Wheels:
- Non-beadlock wheels are the more common and traditional type of wheels found on most vehicles. They rely on the tire's bead and the air pressure inside the tire to keep the tire in place on the wheel.
- Non-beadlock wheels are used on everyday vehicles and most on-road vehicles. They are designed to maintain the integrity of the tire-to-wheel connection at standard tire pressures.
- Non-beadlock wheels are lighter and less complex than beadlock wheels, making them suitable for vehicles where weight and complexity are concerns.

In summary, the primary difference between beadlock and non-beadlock wheels is how they secure the tire to the wheel. Beadlock wheels are designed for extreme off-road use, where low tire pressures are common and added security is essential, while non-beadlock wheels are the standard choice for most on-road and off-road vehicles. When choosing between these two types of wheels, it's essential to consider the intended use of the vehicle and the specific demands of the terrain and driving conditions.

Do you offer multiple powder coating colors?

Having over 100 powders in stock, including popular options from prismatic powders and OEM colors, provides a lot of choices. Additionally, we will match specific colors and order them if not in stock. This level of flexibility and variety should help with achieving the perfect powder coating color for your project. If you have any specific questions or need assistance, feel free to ask!

What is the most common wheel width size for trail / desert riding?

The most common wheel width size for trail and desert riding in a UTV can vary depending on personal preferences and the specific terrain you'll be encountering. However, a popular choice for many off-road enthusiasts is to use beadlock wheels with a width of 7 to 8 inches for trail riding/desert terrain.

Narrower wheels (7-8 inches) are generally favored where you might encounter tight and twisty paths. These wheels allow for more precise maneuvering and can navigate through narrower trails more effectively.

What is the most common wheel width size for sand dunes?

For sand dune riding in a UTV, wider wheel sizes are generally preferred to provide better flotation and traction on the soft, sandy terrain. The most common wheel width size for sand dunes typically falls in the range of 7 to 8 inches for the front and 10 inches to 14 inches for the rear or even wider in some cases.

Wider wheels help distribute the weight of the vehicle more effectively, and improve traction. They also allow for the use of wider sand paddle tires, which can further improve performance on dunes. The combination of wide wheels and appropriate sand tires enhances stability and maneuverability on sandy surfaces.

What is the difference between forged wheels & other off the shelve / imported cast wheels?

American-made forged wheels and imported cast wheels are two distinct types of wheel designs, each with its own set of characteristics and advantages. Here are the key differences between the two:

1. Manufacturing Process:
- American-Made Forged Wheels: Forged wheels are created by taking a single piece of high-quality aluminum alloy and subjecting it to extreme heat and pressure. This process compresses and shapes the metal into the desired wheel design. Forged wheels are typically made in the USA and are known for their strength and durability.
- Imported Cast Wheels: Cast wheels are made by pouring molten metal (usually aluminum) into a mold, allowing it to cool and solidify. This casting process is often used in various countries and is generally less labor-intensive than forging.

2. Material Quality:
- Forged Wheels: Forged wheels are known for their superior material quality and strength. The forging process aligns the grain structure of the metal, making it more durable and capable of withstanding harsh driving conditions, such as heavy loads or high-performance applications.
- Cast Wheels: Cast wheels may not have the same level of material quality and strength as forged wheels. They are more susceptible to cracks, bending, and other forms of damage, especially in demanding driving situations.

3. Weight and Performance:
- Forged Wheels: Forged wheels are generally lighter and stronger than cast wheels. Their reduced weight can improve a vehicle's handling and overall performance, as they decrease unsprung weight and rotational mass.
- Cast Wheels: Cast wheels are typically heavier, which can have a negative impact on a vehicle's performance, especially in high-performance or racing applications.

4. Cost:
- Forged Wheels: American-made forged wheels are often more expensive than imported cast wheels. The precision and strength offered by the forging process contribute to the higher cost.
- Cast Wheels: Imported cast wheels are generally more budget-friendly. They are a cost-effective option for those looking to enhance the appearance of their vehicle without a significant performance advantage.

5. Aesthetic Options:
- Both forged and cast wheels come in a variety of designs, finishes, and styles. The choice between the two may depend more on the specific aesthetic preferences of the vehicle owner.

In summary, the primary differences between American-made forged wheels and imported cast wheels are in the manufacturing process, material quality, weight, performance, cost, and durability. Forged wheels are known for their superior strength and performance but come at a higher cost, while cast wheels are more budget-friendly but may lack the same level of durability and performance advantages. The choice between the two depends on your specific needs and budget.
