Nestled in Africa’s Great Limpopo Wilderness, Kruger National Park is bisected by the Letaba River, and offers a breathtaking array of 4x4 safari trails that combine off-road traveling, outdoor camping and game viewing. It is from this off roader’s paradise that Black Rhino Wheels drew inspiration for the newly introduced Letaba truck wheels. Like all Black Rhino custom truck wheels, the new Letaba is an engineering tour de force, ruggedized to meet the substantial demands of SUV and truck enthusiasts. No less noteworthy is the stunning design of Letaba truck rims. Radiating strength and confidence, its split six-spoke concave aspect is finished in Matte Black, Silver with a brushed face and a chrome stainless lip or Gloss Black with a chrome stainless lip. The Letaba’s multi-piece structure is the ideal platform for combining innovative design with rock-solid performance.

Letaba off road wheels are manufactured in 20-inch diameter by 9-inch width, 22-inch by 9.5-inch and 24-inch by 10-inch to deliver the aggressive stance and elevated clearance preferred by lifted truck and SUV customizers. Positive offsets from 15 to 35mm are available. All Black Rhino aftermarket truck wheels are hub centric, or supplied with a centering ring, for a smooth, vibration free ride.

Terence Scheckter, president of Black Rhino Wheels, points out that “Black Rhino now offers ten designs specifically for the off road enthusiast as well as seven models aimed at the truck and SUV owner. In all cases, wheels are engineered for precision compatibility with specific model vehicles. This, of course, requires a broader range of specs than the typical aftermarket wheel manufacturer. But it underscores our ‘zero compromise’ mindset.”

Scheckter adds that the company’s commitment to engineering excellence and continuous improvement has been essential to the company’s rapid growth and the strength and commitment of its dealer network. Black Rhino dealers can be searched by zip code on the Black Rhino website at or can be found by calling 1888-766-7775.

The “Configurator” tab goes a step further, enabling viewers to preview any Black Rhino wheel on the make, model and color of their vehicle. To add an “instagram” dimension, the site’s Gallery includes dozens of uploaded photos of Black Rhino Wheels on customer vehicles.
