Now here at AR Wheelcare we love a wheel, they are a massive part of our lives.
Many of our motor car favourites have some stunning wheels and we thought we would have a run through some of our favourites, so in no particular order here are out top 10 favourite wheels on a famous car…
The General Lee
The Dukes of Hazzard was admittedly a rather simple show, and this is evidenced as it was probably carried for six seasons by nothing more than the Dodge Charger. The wheels were 14-by-7-inch (36cm × 18cm) American Racing brand "Vectors" throughout the show (with Carroll Shelby center caps) and were mainly mounted on P235/70R14 B. F. Goodrich Radial T/A tires with the blackwall side facing out.
The Doc's Delorean
It took Dr Emmet Brown and Marty McFly on a whirlwind of adventures that cover 130 years of Hill Valley history in the Back to the Future trilogy. The DMC-12s are fitted with cast alloy wheels, measuring 14 inches in diameter by 6 inches wide on the front and 15 inches in diameter by 8 inches wide on the rear.
This adorable VW stole hearts across the globe when it was bought to life in 1968 blockbuster, The Love Bug.
This bad ass set of wheels was made famous in Batman Begins and has undergone a myriad of transformations over time. The wheels were something else being made from Cast alloy and 15 × 6.5 throughout.
Steve McQueens Mustang
The Ford Mustangs used in Bullitt (there were a pair of them used for shooting the movie) were piloted by arguably the coolest actor ever, Steve McQueen, in probably the most iconic car chase of all time.
A modified Cadillac Miller-Meteor used in the 1984 supernatural horror comedy film Ghostbusters has simple yet stunning wheels for the vehicle. Who you gonna call.... AR Wheelcare (sorry!).
Mr Fryes Ferrari
In the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the star car belongs to Ferris' sidekick, Cameron, father, worth about £11.5k today...
Starskys Gran Torino
The red Gran Torino with the big white stripe and mag wheels shot to fame in the Starsky & Hutch TV series fitted with the Ansen Sprint 5-slot mag wheels added with larger rear tyres.
It was such a hit in the movie 'Gone In 60 Seconds' that it actually resulted in cottage industries creating Eleanor replicas. Running on either silver-painted steel wheels or special cast-magnesium center "Cragar Shelby" 15" rims with chromed center caps marked with a stylized "CS"
Bandits Trans Am
You couldn't order a new Trans Am in the late Seventies without specifying you wanted the famous "Flaming Chicken" decals on the hood.
Just could resist an extra
Charlies Getaway Minis
Although Michael Caine and Noel Coward star in the movie, the three Minis, in red, white and blue, respectively, arguably stole the show in The Italian Job. The wheel might not have been stunners but they got the gold away...
