Off-Road fanatics are a subculture of their own, with a dedication to building the toughest looking trucks and SUVs, on-road or off. Black Rhino Truck Wheels was created to cater to this crowd, providing a family of wheels that complement and add to the statement owners are making about how bad their ride is. Into that mix, Black Rhino now offers the Armour model wheel, one of 16 styles of off-road wheels and truck rims in the Black Rhino lineup.

The Armour is an aggressive ten-spoke bad boy styled in a matte black finish with milled and polished trim and serious silver bolt at each spoke’s terminus.The wheel has a massive 1.5 to 2 inch lip, varying by wheel diameter, 17”, 18” or 20”, making it the perfect upgrade to complete the look of a stock or lifted truck, off-road vehicle or SUV.
