If your new wheels have an open design, think about the surrounding parts. Here's a couple of examples I found roaming our parking lot earlier today.
How hard would it have been to grab some G2 caliper paint, which is available in 11 different colors, to clean things up a little and add a little flash?
Something like these OZ Racing Superleggera III wheels with Pirellis on a Ford Transit.
My name is Luke Pavlick and I am a car guy.
Check them out and let me know what you think!

We can also mount and balance a set of tires on your new wheels. An excellent tire choice would be the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11.
Check out some of the other wheels we have by entering your vehicle make, model and year in the Upgrade Garage.

We've all been there before. You pull out your summer wheels and tires and you're ready to hit the road. But sometime over the course of winter, a center cap to a wheel disappeared! A shiny set of BBS or Zinik wheels can be an eyesore if the center cap is missing.
Tire Rack has simplified the process of finding the right center cap for your wheel. It's easy! Follow these steps to see if your center cap is available:
- Start by searching by brand
- Once on the brand page, select the wheel you're interested in
- Click on the "Optional Hardware" tab
- Add center cap to your cart
Tire Rack is making it easier to get your vehicle back on the road and looking good!
Please note, we only carry center caps for wheels that are in our inventory. Please browse by brand to see if we carry the wheels you currently own.
In this wheel and tire package example I used the SS version of the car with the RS package : Wheels for 2010 Chevy Camaro SS RS Package
Once you pick the wheels and add them to the cart you can then add the tires for your car, truck or SUV.
In my opinion the best bet for these Camaro Tires are the OE Pirelli P Zero tires.
You can read this Pirelli tire Review by clicking on the tire itself and then on reviews.
The package I created with the new BBS CH-R is the best looking in my opinion but we have many great choices in wheel styles. Have fun!
The Porsche at right features BBS RS-GT wheels, but they're certainly not the only BBS wheels we've got at Tire Rack. In fact, we count over 35 different styles for you to choose from—one of which will be the look you want your vehicle.
In fact, you can search by vehicle to get started. In choosing a BBS wheel, you're committing to a brand that's been to the winner's circle in numerous racing events which means you can rest assured you're getting the quality you are looking for.
Check to see which Porsche wheel will look the best on your car using our exclusive view on vehicle tool. Just let us know which year and model Porsche you have, then select a wheel and click View on Vehicle.
A stylish Jetta should roll on an equally-stylish set of Jetta tires and wheels. Despite the fact that there are plenty of options, a short "drive" into our Upgrade Garage will help you narrow it down. Give Tire Rack your vehicle specs, and we'll compose a list of options you'll want to choose from. It's that easy. (We'll even recommend suspension upgrades, just in case you're interested.)
Like our Sportwagon at left? We think it's eye-catching. The black BBS rims are an impressive contrast to the white-bodied Jetta. Details? BBS CH wheels, Pirelli PZero Nero tires.
Maybe they'll fit your Jetta, too.

Get the complete package—enter the Upgrade Garage to find performance rims and tires for your vehicle.
Like, for example, the O.Z. Racing Botticelli III wheels featured on the Z06 at right. A polished lip and bright silver finish create a winning look that complements the Corvette's existing high style. Same goes for these Corvette wheels, too:
• BBS RS-GT
• O.Z. Racing Alleggerita HLT
• O.Z. Racing Raffaelo III
And the most beautiful aspect of aftermarket Corvette rims—they increase the performance levels of your vehicle as much as they enhance aesthetics. (Read more.)
Search for these wheels in our Upgrade Garage, and we'll show you what they look like on your Corvette. We'll also show you a selection of Corvette tires suited to your vehicle. (In case you're wondering, the Corvette above features Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires.)
When it comes to motorsports, BBS is extremely successful. So it's only natural that they lead the way in wheel manufacturing and engineering technology. BBS rims are, after all, quite often the wheels of champions. It's about being light on weight, but heavy on safety—a combination that almost always improves the driving experience. Check out these top-selling BBS wheels:
Front: 20x9.5 ET40 26.2lbs.

Anybody going to be attending the Grand Prix in Joliet the end of the month? I went to the races last year at Road America and had a great time. There is going to be 7 different racing series on one day. Come on out and enjoy road racing at its best and cheer on the car of choice. There is suppose to be a MBZ SLR racing in the Speed GT class.
My favorite wheels are the BBS wheels. I also like the OZ Racing wheels. Both of these wheel lines can be seen on your daily driven cars. The BBS wheels look great on the BMW's. Whether you track your car or it is just a daily driver it will update the look and reduce unsprung weight..
