Wheels and rims make the car. Sure, you can dress it up with a fancy paint job and various body kits, but if your wheels look like they came standard on an economy-trim line Ford, people will notice. To make a statement, you have to have quality wheels installed on your car. Unfortunately, the most amazing wheels are also some of the most unaffordable and expensive. If you had the cash, would you buy these — some of the most expensive custom wheels and tires available?
Asanti Diamond and Sapphire Rims
These 22-inch rims redefine “bling” and will set you back a cool million dollars. With more than 12,000 diamonds and 800 sapphires, totaling 1,100 carats of precious gemstones, you might put these rims on a car you drive only for special occasions. These rims are likely best reserved for an expensive car, like a Maybach, and might look out of place on a Chrysler 300 or similar vehicle. But it’s really up to you and your bank account!
American-Made Nutek Rims
Every Nutek rim is made custom, including the finishes and colors. If you’re looking to have a set of wheels that no one else in the world can match, call up Nutek to place your order. But just be ready to fork over about $25,000 for them.
Lexani Forged Rims
A far cry from the $250,000-per wheel price tag of the Asanti rims, Lexani’s run from reasonable costs ($4,000 for a set) up into the five digits. Some look dope on Cadillac Escalades, but their less gaudy wheels are sophisticated and understated. Lexani isn’t called the “wheel makers of the future” for nothing.
GFG Forged Wheels
If your Lamborghini needs custom rims and tires, one obvious choice is to go with GFG. Specializing in rims and wheels for exotic sports cars for more than two decades, there’s a reason that this brand has become so popular. These forged wheels will set you back around $15,000, depending on the style you choose.
In general, Vossen is a good choice for luxury rims. With so many rims to choose from you have to narrow it down to whether you’re looking for a forged rim, a forged hybrid, or something else — and then there’s metallic colors and finishes. The VFS10, thankfully, is available on discount sites for slightly less than you’d pay straight from the manufacturer. If you look hard, you can find a set for $10,000. Some models will run you as little as $450 each if you’re lucky enough to find them in the right size and style to complement your ride. Others Vossen originally sold for more than $40,000.
Italian-Made 3-Piece Forged Wheels
For an Italian flair on your Ferrari, Savini has you covered. The design of these rims sends a message: this is an aggressive and stylish car. Aerospace-grade aluminum makes these rims super lightweight and the colors are fully customizable, if you’re willing to pay $16,000 for a set.
Any Asanti Wheel Set
Yes, nothing beats the diamond-encrusted rims from Asanti, but honestly, most of their wheels set the bar high for style and functionality, so it’s only right that their entire line be acknowledged on a list of the most expensive wheels in the world. Custom finishes on these forged rims give a personal touch to your automobile and are especially created to complement luxury vehicles. Price points will vary depending on which rims you choose, but Asanti rims are immediately recognizable and thus probably worth every penny.
