What car part is an essential part of a car’s performance, safety, and style? The wheel. Nothing else is so easy to change yet so fundamental to a car’s character. Enthusiasts often change out original equipment wheels for something more suited to their aesthetic taste or particular use case, but sometimes a factory wheel design is so beloved that it transcends one vehicle or model generation. By the same token, there are some aftermarket wheels that became so popular and widely used that they’ve become practically household names (if you live in a gearhead home, anyway).
