Where are Moto Metal Wheels Made?
Since the discovery of their brand, Moto Metal has been based out of Colorado where their team of designers, marketers, and distributors constantly look to break barriers with their wheel designs. Just like most of your household products, Moto Metal wheels are manufactured in China.
Are Moto Metal Wheels Good?
Yes. The simple and straightforward answer to this question is yes, and here’s why. They get inspiration for their unique wheels from street looks, do a little magic, and then the final product is an aggressive wheel that’s compatible with lifted trucks and radiates that street vibe.
To do this, they use design characteristics like flat, deep lips, milled accents, customizable inserts, and a wide variety of sizes that will work for any huge lift. Moto Metal offers wheels in diameters ranging from 16” to 24”, widths from 6” to 10”, and a ton of negative and positive offset options.
With a combination of fitment and styling, Moto Metal brings it all together by developing and engineering lightweight, durable wheels from high-quality aluminum. So not only will they complete the look of your build, but they can handle any abuse that might be thrown their way.
Moto Metal wheels have a ton of different lineups and offer a wide variety of popular finish options like satin black with milled spoke edges, gloss black with machined spoke faces, gloss grey with a black lip, chrome, polished, bronze, and classic gloss black.
What are Moto Metal’s Best Wheels?
While any wheel by Moto Metal can drop some jaws, there is one specific lineup that has proven to be a fan-favorite time and time again. You guessed it, it’s the Moto Metal MO970. If you’re wondering why it’s so good, don’t worry, we’ll tell you.
The MO970 didn’t get to be as popular as it is by accident. This one-piece alloy, straight 8-spoke wheel with hidden lugs looks good on any build type and will fit any lifted truck. Like Moto Metal’s other wheel lineups, the MO970 is available in sizes ranging from 16x7 all the way up to 24x14.
Machined spoke faces and milled edges deliver the eye-catching touches this wheel needs to stand out from the crowd. Available in gloss black, satin black, and even PVD chrome, this wheel is extremely affordable and can start at as low as $492/set. However, just because they’re not super expensive doesn’t mean Moto Metal didn’t design this wheel with strength and durability in mind. The MO970 is constructed of high-quality, lightweight aluminum and comes with a lifetime structural warranty, along with a one-year finish warranty.
Other popular wheel lineups that get a lot of attention in the show community include:
These wheels get a lot of love because they showcase unique, split-spoke designs or pops of color in the wheels, like bright red. Also, these lineups are available in chrome, which is a popular option for a show build.
