Nothing changes the look of your car like a new set of wheels, and the right rim can make or break the appearance of a car.

Out of the zillions of combinations out there, here are 10 aftermarket wheels — both old and new — that we think really stand out.



OZ Racing Ultraleggera



A racing wheel needs to do more than just look good: It needs to reduce unsprung weight and provide airflow for cooling, while providing enough strength for the abuse of the track. OZ Racing is known for its lightweight wheels, and the Ultraleggera (Italian for ultralight), the latest iteration of their classic racing wheel, offers good looks and good performance.

Shop for OZ Racing Ultraleggera wheels here.



American Racing Torq Thrust



We like the old-school look of the Torq Thrust. Introduced in the mid-1960s, this was the wheel that made swapping out wheels a thing. Designed for drag racing, the Torq Thrust is designed to minimize weight and provide maximum brake cooling (important in the days of non-power-assisted drums). Today, it gives a handsome old-school look to any muscle car, street rod or restomod.

Enkei RP03



We love the simple five-spoke look, and the Enkei RP03 shows how good it can look, with spokes that reach to the edge of the rim to make the wheels look even larger. The RP03 comes from Enkei’s racing lineup, so it’s light and durable as well as being handsome.

Shop for your set of Enkei RP03 wheels here.



BBS Super RS



BBS is a German manufacturer that has supplied original equipment wheels to just about every major European and Japanese automaker. The forged-aluminum RS, with its cross-spoke design, became an icon of performance in the ‘80s and ‘90s. The wheel is still offered in an updated version called the Super RS, a good choice if you want to capture a vintage performance look.

American Racing AR39



You want 1990s? Friends, it doesn’t get any more 1990s than this. The AR39 was clearly a passing fad, and the company has long since dropped them from their catalog, but you can still find them if you’re willing to do some digging. They go great with a Metallica T-shirt.

Konig Hypergram



Konig wheels attract us with their simple, functional, lightweight look—and yet they have an artistry that sets them apart from simpler racing wheels. Konig uses a process they call “flow forming” to give their wheels a delicate look with a strong backbone, and with several colors on offer, we love the effect.

Anything from Forgiato



Forgiato makes some of the most exclusive and expensive rims in the world, and frankly we were hard pressed to pick one wheel from their collection — everything they make is pretty far out there. We’re partial to the disk designs in the Luminoso series, but this company offers something for everyone … provided your motto is “go big or go home.”

American Racing Vector



We’re die-hard Dukes of Hazzard fans and not ashamed to admit it. Neither are we ashamed to admit that we’d like to follow their lead and roll around on a set of American Racing Vectors. Though this wheel will always be associated with the Duke Boys’ Charger, we’ve seen it on a variety of old American iron (and even a classic AE86 Corolla) and it gives them a great vintage look.

Ronal URS



Whoops — we meant to put these on our list of the worst aftermarket wheels for your car. Sorry about that.

But in case you do love them, browse through all of the Ronal wheels listings here.



Minilites



Minilites were a staple on small British roadsters, and most of the wheels you’ll find are designed for something small and British (though you’ll find them for Porsches as well). A set of original Minilite mags is a great find, though there are knock-offs as well, and they look great adorning the wheel-arches of Mazda Miatas.

American Racing AR767



Yeah, yeah, we know — this list is starting to look like an advertisement for American Racing, but we’re drawn to vintage and classic looks and AR made (and still makes) a lot of our favorites. The AR767 is a classic design that was a staple for trucks and SUVs in the ‘70s and ‘80s. We’ve seen ‘em in white, we’ve seen ‘em in chrome, but we love AR’s latest take: Gloss black with red and blue pinstripes.

^^^ Very True. None of these wheels seem to fit the Challenger, but they sure are nice. I'm going with this wheel and it does fit. 20x9 up front and 20x10.5 out back............

Personally, I like the stock wheels on my '15 Scat Pack.

I would do almost anything to get a set of original Torq Thrusts for my R/T. But alas, they only come in 15 and 17 inch. Makes me very sad.

Here’s the thing-

Most of the stock wheels have a visual balance, and look damn good as they are.
The only issue is in having sizing and width to support a particular sizing of tire.
The thing a lot of aftermarket wheels are missing, is the balance and lack of “bling” that the stock wheels accomplish, and is probably the reason you see a number of people looking for swaps, widening the stock tires, or otherwise keeping them on and using a wider rear tire.

If someone wanted to make some money, they’ed find a way to make a forged or rotary forged copy that stands up to hard use, shaves some weight, and doesn’t cost the price of a short block to get a set.

We’re making due, or dropping serious cash right now for aftermarket that isn’t always the ideal.
Performance, near stock appearance (or classic appearance), weight savings, and strength.
If you ask me, reevaluate favorites to accomplish this, and see if the list changes.

Elegance is radical enough without going full mustang.

torque thurst

As far as I can tell I've been in the market for some aftermkt wheels just so I can put bigger rubber on..And you can get torque thrust mags to fit your challenger..9 1/2 10 /12in wheels.Fit right out of the box ..no spacers or off set issues.And I agree with one other poster who was lamenting the fact that our cars wheels come in such a small size and not adequately wide enough to handle larger rubber,so we have to go the aftermkt route..I have the classic heritage wheels on my car and they are only 8in...too small..If dodge would've made that wheel in a larger diameter alot of challenger owners would gladly buy them,after we save enough cash...HA!...So in the end I'm going with the torque thrust I think it's the vn515 or vn 425...not sure but you can find them at american racing...

I just installed Modern Muscle wheels from Centerline. I bought 20x9 and they fit with no problem. My next tire buy will include 275/40R20 for the rear. They are the same diameter as the stock 245/45R20, so no problems with the speedo and it gives me another inch of meat. The Centerlines also come in 10.5 wide, but that was too much for me.
