January 31, 2010. At the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California, we caught Motorspot, Inc. customer, Mr. Fred Rieneke of Grant's Pass, Oregon displaying his very attractive and detailed 1957 Pontiac Chieftain. Fred runs a Cadillac cap on his rims and narrow whitewalls. This unusual Pontiac deserves a Best of Show trophy in our view!

May 26, 2010 - 1958 Chevrolet Impala - Owner: Mr. Anthony Romero of Southern California. Wheels by Motorspot, Inc.

May 26, 2010 - For modern cars, Motorspot, Inc. offers Dayton wire wheels. Check out this 2008 BMW 128i owned by Bob Fatschel and Mary Russell of Ft. Myers, Florida.
These wheels are direct-bolt style but have knock-off style caps. The spokes are stainless steel. For more information, please click here.


  • May 25, 2010 - Looking for something unusual?  Motorspot, Inc. customer Mr. Bob Ferenczi owns this late model Thunderbird. Built from 2002 -2005, these modern T-Birds are gaining popularity and are becoming collector cars. When it comes to wheels, there aren't many options available other than our 17" wire wheel with original style spinner caps. Styling-wise, Mr. Ferenczi's T-Bird incorporates the coachwork design of a 1957 Baby Bird and our wheels help finish off the look. What do you think?

  • May 24, 2010 - It is not unusual for us to prepare custom-built wire wheels for trikes such as the one owned by our customer, Mr. Stephen Wells of San Antonio, Texas. This Harley Davidson powered rig runs our 52-spoke Hot Rod style wire wheels. The spokes are chrome plated steel and the hub and outer rim are powdercoated in an ink-black finish. The hub caps are stainless steel. The wheels measure 15 X 8" with a 3.25" backspace on a reverse pattern. Notice the perfect fit within the wheel wells.
  • Along with the pictures our customer sent us, he also let us know, "Here are some pics from this weekend when I picked up the trike at the shop in San Antonio. The guy in the yellow vest (shown below), with the red big wheel trike is missing his right arm. He is an inspiration to me. He volunteers at Brook Army Medical Center working with soldiers injured in the war by showing them that an amputation does not have to be the end of the world. And he is not even a vet, he was hit by a drunk driver. He built his trike out of what was left of his motorcycle after the drunk ran him down (himself). Thank you again for expediting delivery of the wheels.






  • May 7, 2010: Mr. Ted Young of Lamar, Arkansas sent us this photo of his very clean and original 1959 Cadillac. Along with the photograph, Mr. Young tells us, "This is a picture of the tires and wheels that I bought from you. They really look good and I have had lots of comments. Ted Young"

  • Thank you Mr. Young for being a Motorspot customer. Your Cadillac and our wheels & tires are a great match. Pink has always been one of  Linda's favorite color choices.


  • This marriage is off to a great start!
  • April 17, 2010 "Dear Linda, just wanted to thank you. The wheels look great and the wedding was perfect on Saturday. I am sending a picture my neighbor took. A big thank you for making my daughter's wedding a success." Daniel Valdes - Metropolitan Opera - Lincoln Center New York, NY

  • April 10, 2010. Good Guys Show in Del Mar, California. This 1955 Ford Sunliner runs a modern Ford V8. Looks very original but totally updated. Check out the perfect fit of the 15 X 6" wire wheels. Tires have a 2.5" whitewall. Owner: Vic Risling of Carlsbad, California.

  • March 20, 2010: Mr. Michael Bohn sent us these photos of his very special 1951 Buick Roadmaster that he has lovingly restored. The wire wheels really help send this car over the top. The use of spinners on the wheels also works well on this exceptional Buick. Mr. Bohn lives in Clarksburg, WV.

  • March 20, 2010
  • Hi Motorspot,
    I've been working on the Eldorado for a couple of years now. The paint is new, slight metal flake and just a tint darker than stock, but I like the way it looks.

    I can't believe all the compliments I get on the car and the first thing people say are "where did you get those wheels?" So I guess I am a rolling advertisement for Motorspot!

    I tell them about you and that I am very happy about the product and impressed with the customer service!

    Please put my car on your web site, and keep up the good work!

    "Here are a few photos of my Caddy with new wheels. Thanks for all your help and great service. They look great. 
    Thanks again, Tony Dallas"


March 15, 2010: Mr. Fred Dixon of Braxton, Mississippi owns this stellar 1956 Ford Victoria. This is a frame-off restoration, taking over three years to complete. Mr. Dixon tells us, "your wire wheels really set it off, thanks again."

This very rare Cadillac is a show-winner many times and is used in parades and even on a poster. Mr. Kosters is a true enthusiast and puts his car to great use. No trailer-queen here!

February 3, 2010. Jerry Ski has an amazing collection of automobiles and this 1956 Thunderbird is truly a museum piece. Running wire wheels from Motorspot, Inc., our customer recognizes that when we say show-quality, we mean it.

  • January 13, 2010. Mr. Clyde Cherry of Zanesville, Ohio sent us this collection of photos of his Concours 1958 Thunderbird convertible. The wire wheels compliment this car dramatically. Note that Mr. Cherry is not running his fender skirts. Owning a 1958 ourselves, we think the open wheel well look is very appealing and naturally, you can see more of our wire wheels that way. Check out the photos of this highly-detailed beauty.

  • January 4, 2010. Mr. Matt Garrett has added this stellar 1966 Cadillac Eldorado to his collection. 19,000 original miles were clocked on this one-owner automobile.

We also like how the spinner hubcaps look on this model also.

  • November 6, 2009. Motorspot, Inc. customer, Mr. Mike Bagwell owns this rare 1948 Oldsmobile 98 convertible. Mr. Bagwell prepared his own Oldsmobile emblems to attach to his center-caps.

Mr. Mike Bagwell.

Note how nice the wire wheel looks in the continental kit cover. Tires used are Coker Classic radials.

  • August 3, 2009 "BEST of SHOW!". Mr. Larry Wescott of Spanaway, Washington sent us this photograph of his show-stopping and show-winning 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air. Mr. Wescott tells us, "Here is my finished 1956 Chev Bel Air picture I said I would send. First show with my new wheels and center caps I got best of show. The show only had about 200 cars but  the best part it was voted on by all the car owners. Thanks again. Larry Wescott". We can't take credit for Mr. Wescott's big win but we strongly believe that a set of wire wheels on a highly detailed car like this one are certain to capture those precious extra points on the Judge's scorecards. This is proof of it.


  • August 3, 2009. This Studebaker is one of our favorite customer's cars.  Robyn and Ervin Souder took their car on vacation pulling this period correct travel trailer.

We are looking for Mercury emblems to fit in the center of his spinners.
