Hot Wheels wheels have made MAJOR strides the last couple of years. Even with a wide array of wheels in both premium and basic form, there were tons of gaps.
But that have been filling those in. We have seen some cool new wheels in basic, and the 4-spoke Real Rider introduced last year looks good on a ton of models. But there has been one MASSIVE gap – modern sports car Real Riders. Hot Wheels has used the 5-spoke and GT RR wheels for modern sports and supercars, and sometimes they work, many times they don’t.
That is going to change. The Hot Wheels Design Team dropped this early this morning:
This is the new 6-spoke Real Rider, clearly inspired by recognizable rims like the Volk TE37, an iconic tuner rim. Here is another angle, provided by Hot Wheels:
You look at these and start thinking of all the models that need these. How about the 180SX Type X? Mazda RX-7? 370Z? Type R? GT350R? The possibilities are endless, and these wheels open up all kinds of Car Culture and Super TH options. We will have to wait and see where they appear first.
