Wheel machining is nothing new to the aftermarket wheel industry, as wheels have been produced with a machined face or machined lip for the past decade. This machining feature removes a painted section of the wheel to leave a raw metal look that is attractive to many aftermarket wheel buyers.
Typically, machined wheels feature a clear coat that's similar to painted wheels to ensure they're protected against the harsh elements -- more specifically from road salt that's found in the northern climates.
Recently, KMC, KMC XD Series and Ultra released new designs that have raised the bar on how wheels are produced. The KMC Splinter, KMC XD Series Bomb (pictured) and Ultra Bolt black with milled accent finish feature a milled accent on the lip of the spokes. This new process uses a CNC machine to accurately and carefully remove material which leaves a sharp, bold and machined edge.
The KMC Splinter, XD Series Bomb and Ultra Bolt are available as truck wheels for many popular applications, including the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado and Toyota Tundra.
