If your truck deserves the very best, choose SOTA Offroad (formerly BMF wheels). True innovators in off-road and lifted truck wheels, the founders of SOTA pioneered and patented the “Death Metal Black” finish. Combining a gloss black finish with full CNC milling on the rim lip, wheel face, and even on the sides of the spokes, it’s what gives SOTA rims their amazing 3D look – a look that’s spawned hundreds of imitators. Choose the best, choose the original: SOTA Offroad.
Polished wheels are buffed by machine or by hand, which gives them an extremely shiny, chrome-like finish. The finish is often protected by a clearcoat to prevent corrosion. If a clearcoat isn't used, the wheels will need repolishing on a regular basis to maintain their high shine.
Painted black wheels are spray-painted with automotive-style paint and are available in several finishes, including satin black, semi-gloss black, carbon black, stealth black, matte black, and flat black.
