Wheelwright private brand Calibre has launched its latest multi-spoke wheel, the Rapide. Designed with timeless elegance in mind, Wheelwright says the wheel puts the looks of much more expensive wheels into a price point more suited to the average enthusiast – the smallest fitments cost £76.
Wheel distributor Wheelwright has released details of a new addition to the premium AEZ range. The latest wheel from the German-Austrian brand is called the Bridge and uses a range of subtle OEM styling cues to create a tasteful and understated design.
Wheelwright has introduced a new pseudo-split rim Dotz wheel to its catalogue. The new “Territory” features a deep-dish profile and is fully TÜV approved. Although the wheel has many passenger car fitments, Wheelwright explains that it was designed for the SUV market, with a load index up to handling most of the biggest arches.
Leading UK alloy wheel house, Wheelwright has launched a new design from the Dotz brand of fully TÜV approved wheels. The ‘Fast Seven’ wheel is suitable for a wide range of looks and applications. It is pressure cast in one piece, in what Wheelwright calls “a convincing take on a genuine split rim”. It has a gunmetal paint finish, juxtaposed with a diamond machined deep dish lip and bolt face.
Wheel distributor, Wheelwright has launched the AEZ Phoenix. The wheel includes a split five-spoke design, aping the current crop of styles being released by many top-end manufacturers. Its Y-shaped spoke profile runs to the edge of the rim, enhancing and exaggerating wheel’s size.
Two consecutively harsh winters have raised awareness to the safety implications associated with freezing temperature. With temperatures regularly dipping below seven degrees between September and April, messages promoting the benefits of winter tyres are beginning to get through.
The Vintage wheel range produced by Alcar Wheelwright brand Calibre is described as a best-selling product. Introduced just over a year ago, the Vintage range’s retro styling has endeared it with owners of a broad spectrum of vehicles, from Mini Coopers through to Sierra Cosworths and a plethora of kit cars. The original 17-inch fitments have now been complemented by new staggered 18-inch sizes. Both the 17 and 18-inch versions are available in 8 and 9-inch widths and with a wide range of four and five stud PCDs available ex-stock. Blank rims for drilling can also be supplied.
Alcar Wheelwright’s Calibre range has announced a new alloy model: the retro-design Bomb. The 7×15” rim “points the way forward for [the Calibre range’s] new season collection”, according to the company. It has an eight-spoke face with pseudo-split rim bolts, giving it a “race-ready demeanour”. The Bomb enters the market priced £93 (excluding VAT), and Calibre says its “4×100 PCD makes it perfect for many core tuner, Honda, BMW and VAG rides”.
