8 Interesting Wheel-Designs from the New York Auto Show

For enthusiasts like myself, the NY Auto Show is an expose for not only new vehicles, but the wheels they’re sporting. As typically a means of insight and inspiration, the wheels at the ‘23 NY Auto Show did not disappoint, even if there weren’t as many of them as previous years.

With the absence of brands such as Mazda, Mercedes, Infiniti, Acura, and Cadillac, I’m certain that we’re missing out on a number of cool wheel-sets. Nonetheless, take a look at some of the most compelling wheel designs that could be found on the show floor.

The collage-like appearance of these 20″ wheels on the new Hyundai Ioniq 6 complimented the rounded aspects of the car surprisingly well. Black painted spokes are a trend that doesn’t look like it will be going out of style anytime soon.

While BMWs presence at the ’23 NYIAS was much to be desired, I couldn’t help but notice the wheel-design upon their largest model as I passed by their staging area. Despite the automaker’s new becoming an acquired taste nowadays, I was pleased to see that the wheels were at least visually consumable.

Not sure if these were real beadlockers, but how practical would that be anyway? These wheels give off the aggressive off-road-y vibes on a truck that is slowly proving itself worthy of performing true off-road activities.

With all of the buzz surrounding this all-electric pickup from Chevy, I was glad to see an edgy wheel-design on it. While not the most utilitarian appearance, it didn’t at all feel like a cop-out. Let’s just hope air is getting to those brakes.
