Wheel of the Month-A Statement with an Accent
Newstalgia Wheel's new Wheel Accents are designed to accentuate your wheel window openings with mirror-like finish. Wheel Accents are constructed of a laser-cut and polished 20-gauge stainless steel. A set of Wheel Accents can completely change the overall appearance of your custom wheels. For billet aluminum wheels, this is ideal because the mirror-plate finish creates a 3D effect behind the wheel windows. Wheel Accents are specifically built for 15- to 20-inch diameter wheels.
