Huntington Beach, CA, October 31, 2012, Wheels engineered for off road style trucks and SUVs must, first and foremost, be able to stand up to the rugged and heavy loads of trucks and SUVs. But that doesn’t mean they have to be boring or featureless. The new Arcos ruggedized off road wheels from Black Rhino Wheels are a case in point. While as massive and muscular as the African black rhino from which they take their name, these off road styled truck wheels are designed to make a distinctive statement for any stock or lifted truck or SUV. Indeed, Black Rhino, a leader in aftermarket truck wheels and SUV wheels for off-road applications, specializes in marrying strength and beauty in high-performance wheels.

"The Arcos is a six-spoke alloy wheel that is available in a tough Matte Black. Two silver heavy-duty rivets accent the wheel’s deep lip at the termination of each spoke. The brilliantly milled recessed center cap sets off each spoke and allows the wheel to be manufactured in a wide variety of offsets preferred by lifted or stock trucks, including +12mm, 00mm and -12mm.

Arcos Off Road Rims are named for El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, or Lands End. El Arco is a distinctive rock formation at the southern tip of Cabo San Lucas, which is itself the extreme southern end of Mexico’s Baja California Sur Peninsula. It is here that the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. The Cabo San Lucas area has become synonymous with the dustiest, dirtiest off-the-beaten-track off road adventures.

“Whether you’re off to school or work or headed up the East Cape of Los Cabos, you can go in style with our Arcos off-road style wheels,” offered Terence Scheckter, president of Black Rhino Wheels. “Appearance matters to the off-road-ready crowd and the new Arcos wheel really stands out in that regard,” he added.

Arcos SUV rims and Truck Rims are available in 17-inch, 18-inch and 20-inch diameters by 9-inch width. A comprehensive range of bore sizes are supported as well as numerous five and six lug bolt circle (PCD) patterns. All Black Rhino wheels are either hub-centric, or supplied with centering rings to ensure a smooth, vibration-free ride.

An excellent resource for off roaders is supplied by the Black Rhino website. Full wheel specifications are available there for the Arcos wheel as well as the eleven other truck wheels and SUV wheels Black Rhino offers.
