Theme Tuesdays: Rare Wheels

3

Reader Matt suggested last week that I do a Theme Tuesday on rare wheels, and I admit it’s a pretty theme idea that I have never tackled.

Rare wheels come in several different forms, low production, out of production, and unique applications and this week’s Theme Tuesday touches on all varieties.

It’s also just a quick skim of the surface until I get some time to really dive in to this topic, expect this theme to boomerang back around in the next few months or so.

Going to start things off with the Messer wheels on Stance East Chad's Mercedes

Messer makes a lot of unique wheels (many of which are too extreme for me) and Chad happens to have the only ME-06-3 wheels in North America

He waited a while for these to be cut but it was worth it, now if only the car itself would come back out of the shop…
The defin fins on Pete's car are rare, rare, rare, so rare in fact that SSR seemed quite surprised he had a pair when I sent them photos

They suit his EF pretty well, considering how large they are

Ken has a whole slew of Rare wheels in his collection but these Autocouture Crescent wheels are perhaps my favorite, its such a classic VIP full face style
Then again so do these..
These Work VS GS wheels also look quit nice though. No matter what wheels he runs Ken has excellent taste
These weds are not rare but to see them on a minitruck? That's a bit rare
Weds LXZ wheels are not exactly rare, but seeing them on a minitruck certainly is
On that same note, Billets on a VW? Also somewhat rare (and stunning as it appears)

Jasgjiven’s Carline CM2 wheels are, if I am not mistaken, quite rare, to the point where he might have one of the few (only?) sets in North America
I blogged about these wheels awhile back, never thought to see them so close to home

Olive was less interested.
It might not look it but my dog Olive is very much impressed
