Building a trail rig is a pretty special feeling; but with so many different modifications from hundreds of brands, it can be tough figuring out who’s who. The trails are unforgiving, especially on your wheel setup. When shopping for the best off road wheels the industry has to offer, you have to sift through a lot of brands, which can be daunting. Mounting the right set of wheels for your use-case is important as it can improve overall driving experience; on and off the trails.
Luckily, the Wheel Suppliers team is pretty well-versed in the wheel industry, so we thought putting together a listicle with our top 10 best off road wheels would lighten the load; at least a little. We’ve got selections from some of the top dogs in the off road wheel industry; so let’s get to it.
P.S. The wheels listed are in no particular order, so don’t worry if the wheel you fall in love with is on the bottom of the list.
1. KMC KM724 Impact OL
First on the list, we’ve got the KMC KM724 Impact OL. KMC has been producing off road wheels since 1982; so rest easy because these guys know what they’re doing. The KM724 Impact OL however, has to be one our personal favorites. This wheel features 16 spokes and a design that’s subtle, yet aggressive. Perfect for achieving that authentic off roading look. The KM724 is available in two finishes; satin black and matte bronze. They come in 16” and 17”, widths from 8”, 8.5” and 9”, offsets of -12 and +0, and multiple PCD’s that fit a wide variety of trucks, SUVs and Jeeps. As for construction, these are 1-piece wheels which offer great performance at an ever better price point.
2. 4PLAY 4PS12
Next up is the 4PLAY 4PS12. With 21 years of experience in the wheel industry, 4PLAY has become one of the best off road wheel brands in the game. All of their wheel designs are absolutely stunning, but the one that sticks out to us the most has to be the 4PS12. The 4PS12 boasts a clean split 12-spoke design with a built-in vented ring along the rim; which is really sick. The 4PS12 is available in a satin black and satin machined finish. As for sizing, they come in 17″, 18″, 20″ and 22″, 9″ width, +0 offset, and a wide variety of popular PCD’s. Thanks to its 1-piece construction, the 4PS12 not only looks great, but is priced great.
3. WELD Off-Road Ledge
Speaking of experience, you can’t have a wheel list without including WELD. Since 1967, WELD has been dominant in the wheel industry, and although they’re relatively new to the off road world, they’re not new to the game. That said, we think the Ledge is one of the best off road wheels they make. This wheel is a modern take on a classic 5-spoke style that Y-splits into the rim, making for a clean aesthetic. The Ledge wheels come in four beautiful finishes: candy red, satin black, satin bronze, and satin gunmetal. Fitments specs are as follows: 17″, 18″, and 20″ diameters, 9″, 10″ and 12″ widths, -44, -12, +0, +12, +13, +18, and +20 offsets, and an assortment of popular bolt patterns. The great thing about the Ledge is its rotary formed construction, meaning it’s one of the lightest off road wheels on the market. Performance and style, what more can you ask for?
4. Black Rhino Guide
You know we had to throw Black Rhino on the list. Founded in 2013 by their parent company TSW, Black Rhino has been making strides in the off road market. Their engineers and designers really know how to grab the attention of trail junkies. That’s exactly why we think the Black Rhino Guide deserves a mention. The Guide features a split 12-spoke design with a deep lip. Availability in gloss midnight blue, matte black and matte bronze finishes make these the go-to off road wheel. They come in 16″ and 17″ diameters, 8.5″ and 9″ widths, +0, +10, and +38 offsets, and super popular bolt patterns. The Black Rhino Guide is a flow forged wheel, turning it into one of the lightest off road wheels on the market.
5. Hardrock Offroad H105
We’re a big fan of Hardrock Offroad here at Wheel Suppliers, so it had to make the shortlist. Dynamic Wheel Group has been in the industry since the 90’s, so they know a thing or two about manufacturing wheels. Their brand Hardrock Offroad, has been splashing waves as of late, and the H105 is noteworthy. The H105’s design is universal, meaning it looks good on everything. With star spoke styling and structural rigidty, the H105 can handle everything you throw at it. Available in popular matte black and matte bronze finishes. This wheel comes in either 17×9 +1 or 17×9 -12 fitment which is perfect for dirt duty, and with 5×127, 6×135, and 6×139.7 bolt patterns, these fit all the popular trail rig platforms. The H105 offers rigid construction and an appealing price point; this wheel is the real deal.
6. Fuel Off-Road Block
Don’t panic, Fuel Off-Road made the list! Established in 2008, Fuel has quickly become one of the best off road wheel brands in the industry. Although they produce some of the nicest wheels on the market, our pick has to go to the Fuel Off-Road Block. You may have seen this design before; maybe somewhere in Japan? Who knows. What we do know is that this is a timeless design that works on everything. With 6 variations of the Block, three of them are offered in beadlock applications, meaning this is the ideal trail rig wheel. The Block comes in 17″ and 18″, widths of 8.5″ and 9″, offsets from -12 to +20, a wide variety of PCD’s, and four stunning finishes: candy red, matte black, matte bronze, and matte gunmetal. What else do you need?
7. Falcon Off-Road T2
Speaking of Japan, how about some Falcon Off-Road? Focused on style, durability, and value, Falcon has been setting the scene on fire. Our pick has to go to the Falcon Off-Road T2. The T2 is a very clean 5-spoke design with a step lip, giving off big JDM vibes. Falcon makes the T2 in only one size: 17×9. Built for the true trail junkie, offsets offered are either -12 or +0 with only two PCD configurations; 5×127 and 6×139.7. Paired up with a classic matte black, matte bronze and matte gunmetal finish, the T2 is a dream.
8. XD Wheels XD861 Storm
XD Wheels sets the limit to 11. Their wheels are designed for those that accept no middle ground, and the XD861 Storm is the epitome of that statement. The XD861 has a very aggressive look. With minimal gaps between the spokes, rivets, and grooved styling on the outer rim, this is a true definition of off road. The XD861 comes in either a 17″ or 20″ diameter and a 9″ or 10″ width. As for offsets, you have the option between -12, +0 and +18. Finished in candy red, sand, and satin black, these wheels can turn any truck, SUV or Jeep into a tank; and they’re priced reasonably making it more attractive.
9. Hartes Metal YSM-766 Monster
Hartes translated from German to English is “tough”. Thus, tough metal. With over 20 years of design experience, Hartes Metal has taken the world by storm with their incredible styling cues. Our choice has to be the YSM-766 Monster. The YSM-766 features a complex multi-layer design, customizable bolts and weight reducing pockets throughout. In regards to fitment, Hartes Metal stayed true to the off road community. Diameters available are 17″ and 18″, 8.5″ and 9″ widths, offsets ranging from -24 to +15, multiple PCD’s, and slick black, bronze and anthracite finishes. If you’re in the market for a trail rig wheel; this is it.
10. Mayhem Wheels Prodigy
Mayhem Wheels often gets overlooked, but we think the Prodigy deserves some recognition here. Their parent company The Wheel Group has been in the game since 1969, so you know you’re getting a quality set of off road wheels from Mayhem. Finished in either black or bronze, the Prodigy is a flat 7-spoke wheel with a step lip and rivets. The ideal off roading aesthetic? You bet. Offered in 17×9, 18×9 or 20×9 with either a +0 or +6 offset. Performance, functionality, and style all in one package. Did we mention these are flow forged; making it a super light off road wheel.
