Appeals to all truck segments as well as the highly popular new Cross Over Utility Vehicle (CUV) segment


Brea, CA March 3, 2017

Black Rhino newest wheel design, the Block, is available in variations to appeal to both segments as well as the highly popular new Cross Over Utility Vehicle (CUV) segment. The Black Rhino Block Truck Rims are named after its tough bold looks.

Catering to such a broad swath of the truck and SUV wheel marketplace requires that Block off road wheels be available in a wide range of sizes and in precision fitments to fit all the most popular trucks and SUVs. Block diameters start at 17x9 to a 20x10 spec for larger sizes engineered for domestic and imported trucks and SUVs, including newer Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokees. To promote precise, adapter-free fitments, Black Rhino Block wheels are manufactured in seven different 5, 6 and 8 lug bolt patterns, and in positive, neutral and negative offsets to meet the varying needs of different truck and SUV applications.

"The entire Black Rhino product lineup is comprised of rock-hard alloy wheels that truck and SUV owners can rest assured are up to the task of both on road and off road deployments," says Terence Scheckter, Black Rhino president. "That requirement met, our dealers tell us that it is our aggressive designs and progressive finishes that are the deciding factor for customers choosing the Black Rhino brand," Scheckter added.
The Block features an industry first in state of the art side milling technology. The Block features a beefy eight window mesh pattern and a massive simulated bead lock lip that allows street legal application of an off-road style. Ruggedly finished, the Block comes in matt black and is tastefully accentuated with machined milling along the entire side of the spokes.  This unique custom off road wheels design and finish figure large in the new Block appeal.

The newly refreshed Black Rhino website, at //www.blackrhinowheels.com/, enables truck and SUV owners to experience what Block truck wheels, and all Black Rhino designs, will look like on their vehicle. This is made possible by the ingenious "Wheel Configurator" tool, which enables shoppers to pull up an image of their year, model and color truck or SUV and "try on" each of the available Black Rhino models and finishes. Additionally the new website enables users to sort through the entire Black Rhino product line by vehicle, wheel size, construction methodology, style, design or finish. Wheel descriptions provide a full technical summary for each wheel.
