- Hey guys, what's going on? It's Alex from Fitment Industries and today we're going to be talking to you about the opposite of cool wheels. We're going to be talking about bizarre ones. Now, I was going to say ugly but apparently our intern decided that ugly was too rough of a word in 2018. He prefers the term bizarre but there mostly just ugly.
So, we figured you guys would want to see some of our favorite takes on some of the weirdest wheels we've seen out there on the market. Let us know in the comments if you think we missed anything. Of course, before we get started don't forget to subscribe. We're trying to hit 50,000. I'm doing the hand movements because Jasper behind us is doing the hand movements. He looks ridiculous. Alright, let's get started.
Just right into in number five. So, the number five is the Vision Morgana. If you've ever seen a Vision Morgana, you probably didn't know it was called a Vision Morgana. And what that is, it's a weird rhombus looking, two spoke-ish looking wheel that was really popular in kind of the dub phase of the after market car community. And they actually are still being made to this day. If you want to go pick up a set, which are like 26 by nine and a half, they're like $1,300 and they pretty much come in like two colors they come in chrome and they come in chrome with black lip. They're weird looking wheels, but if you really want them on your Impalas then go nuts. They're pretty much just a weird looking wheel with no exposed lug nuts or anything like that and pretty must just look like a really poorly shaped square.
Off to number four, we're talking about a wheel brand that we're actually going to cover in a wheel history this soon, pretty soon, soon-ish, pretty-ish soon. The Ronal, Rönal, Ranal, a teddy bear wheel. If you guys didn't know, Ronal, Rönal, Ranal, whatever you want to call them. We'll get into that in the wheel history, was a company that's made and is probably one of the biggest OEM manufacturers right next to Enkei and they specialized in and at one point in their day, they decided to make a teddy bear wheel. Now, a teddy bear wheel is exactly what it sounds like. It's a wheel that looks like a teddy bear. There is spokes, I guess if you consider the two legs, two arms, and two ears that connect to the outside lip, spokes and it overall went off pretty well. So, if you plan on putting them on a Mazda Miata or a VW Beetle, then this wheel is for you but they really aren't made anymore. You can find on Ebay or you could find them on Craigslist if you're lucky enough to come across them. But we say that they're bizarre or ugly, I'd probably say bizarre. But if you really want to run them, they're really not that terrible looking. Just probably not something you'd want to roll up to a car show with.
Now, we're going to take it back even further. Back in the day when you needed to have like leather seats and animal fur and animal skin to be deemed a rich person in the car community and just in life in general. It didn't matter if you were a millionaire, if you rode around on cloth seats, you just didn't do it. So, a sign Asanti was like, yo why don't we just apply that same exact mentality of the Cadillac series to wheels and Asanti came out with a series called the Skin Series which is exactly what it sounded like. It was animal skin on Asanti wheels. It's about as disgusting as you could possibly imagine it to be because they put just pretty much anything on there. One of the most common ones you saw and you can see still in the wonder world of Google, is the Ostrich skin that they put on the outside of they're fatty seven spoke style wheels. It looked terrible. It was awkward to look at. Very uncomfortable and I'm surprised Asanti actually survived that weird, little design.
Anyway, moving on to number two. Now number two goes out to all of my guys and gals, probably, that were a ten at some point in their life and they wanted to make a cool RuneScape account. They had to go and they sat there and they looked at the screen for like two minutes before they wanted to come up with a really cool name for their account. So, that's pretty much what happened with these guys because they're called the Arelli Assassin. Just like your username in RuneScape when you were 10 years old, it sounded really cool at the time but now that you've grown up into a big boy you realize just how ridiculous that name sounds. The Arelli Assassin was a weird like starfish and a stingray like twisted with like a shuriken. It just is a weird looking wheel. No lug nuts it's got things going on all over the place. The only color that we saw out there was chrome. If you really want to be cool, they were on a lot of different prototype cars in the early 2000s and they continue to be probably just a weird S looking wheel. You can find them on forums actually pretty commonly. A lot of people have developed a cult following for these wheels just because of how ridiculously looking these wheels are. They definitely top the board in terms of bizarre looking wheels.
Into making wrong decisions, we're going to talk about the number one bizarre wheel that we found out there in the internet, which you have probably seen before. It was on Top Gear. It's ridiculous. Jeremy Clarkson coined it and that is the phallic-shaped wheel. I don't even know how to say it on YouTube because YouTube has guidelines and we don't want to get yelled at with guidelines. It's multi spoke wheel that has added reinforcement and it's a spherical shape around the wheel rim that is also enforced by actual spokes that enter into the center of the wheel that is then enlarged in the shape of another conical style look with a cut at the end to help really add into the rigidity of the wheel. In terms of what it looks like, I'm not even going to, you get it. It looks like what you think it looks like. They have a ridiculous following. You can find them on Ebay every once in a while but the word on the street is nobody really knows where they came from and why. It's probably just a rumor or somebody decided to be funny at a wheel shop. They're like "Hey, let's make a mold for $60,000," and the guys are like, "what should we make it of?" and they're like, "put your d*** in it, we'll just copy it 12 times turn it into a wheel." So, those are our top five most bizarre wheels. We hope you guys enjoyed. Check out fitmentindustries.com.
