Wheel Market Trends

Adding new wheels is still typically among the first modifications consumers make to their vehicles. Whether their vision is to improve aesthetics or performance, this segment of the automotive specialty-equipment market has the potential to make their ride stand out from the rest of the pack.

According to the 2018 SEMA Market Report, overall industry sales reached a new high of $43 billion in 2017. The wheel and tire segment represented $5.31 billion, providing endless opportunities for manufacturers and retailers in that market. Without further ado, here are the latest innovations from the 2018 SEMA Show New Products Showcase:
