An In-Depth Look At Moto Metal Wheels

In recent years there have been many companies pop up, seemingly overnight, with promises of durable wheels and wild designs. Unfortunately, a lot of these wheel brands do not support the off-road community with warranties or quality products.

If you search online forums or reviews on some “lesser-known” wheel brands, you can find horror stories about spokes breaking and aluminum wheels cracking at the worse possible moments.

Since we are surrounded by truck owners and 4wheelers every day at 4wheelonline.com we thought it would be fun to take a more intimate look at one of the most popular wheel companies in our catalogue.

Moto Metal Wheels have a terrific following with the lifted truck and Dodge Cummins communities. Their wheels have been featured on award winning Jeeps and SUVs, too. Additionally, their products have helped professional race teams take home the gold in fierce off-road competitions. So naturally, we needed to see what all the fuss was about.

Who Makes Moto Metal Wheels?

According to the Wheel Pros, Moto Metal Wheels has one of the biggest names in aftermarket rims backing them up. For the last 50 years, the same company that makes American Racing wheels and KMC Wheels has been rolling out new and innovative rims for truck enthusiasts.

The company’s introduction of Moto Metal wheels came from the motocross subculture in Southern California. With a blend of urban of fashion, high horsepower dirt bikes and lifted trucks, the Moto Metal wheels seems to embody all of these qualities without sacrificing any strength.

All of Moto Metal wheels are manufactured to be as light as possible and with the use of high-quality aluminum, alloy and magnesium metals, the wheels are more durable than OEM steel rims. The lightweight Moto Metal wheels are an excellent choice for desert racers who are victims of brake fatigue and warped rotors. The lighter wheels dissipate heat easer and require less stopping energy, which decreases the chance of brake failure.
