There are very few names bigger and more respected than Savini Wheels in the very exclusive aftermarket custom rims segment. Based out of Anaheim, CA, Savini has crafted a place for itself as a brand that balances and delivers on precision finishes and advanced engineering in crafting outstanding wheels for every vehicle segment available in the United States.
Offering bespoke rims for luxury vehicles is Savini’s USP. It is a favorite with owners of high-flying and high-end cars; from the latest Mercedes-Benz, Bentley, and Rolls-Royce coupes and stretch sedans to premier 2, 4, and 5-door speed machines like the Porsche Cayenne & the evergreen Mustang.
With sales volumes of premium electric vehicles picking up, Savini Wheels isn’t far behind. Most of its existing models will fit e-SUVs and hatchbacks, and Savini is said to be developing a more refined range of aftermarket rims for all-electric segments as demand surges.
The EV industry in the US is growing faster than most experts had predicted, although some start-ups (like Lucid) are struggling to scale costs and have resorted to laying off staff. Even Tesla, probably the biggest mover in this segment, is looking at months of delays in deliveries.
Electric pickup trucks are doing a bit better. Savini Wheels is launching specialized forged rims for heavier vehicles like the F-150 Lightning and the Silverado EV soon.
Of course, if you are planning to add extra brownie points for style to your luxury EV (and it’s already in your garage), skip right to the next section!

The top-selling 22-inch SVF-01 in brushed silver stuns with an old-school 10-spoke design has a deep concave profile that enhances the rim’s depth and dimension.

The SV-F5 from Savini Wheels is another forged example from the Signature range, but with very different design cues and finish. The SV-F5 has a sporty and aggressive design with a gloss graphite finish and a split 5-spoke pattern that creates a dynamic appearance much more appealing than OE rims.
Try out the 19-inch SV-F5 in a DDT (double dark tint) finish first, although this model is available in sizes touching 24 inches.
You can opt for concealed lugs, more detailed machining on the lips and inner rim, replaceable central hub covers, extra padding on the concave spokes, and there are a huge number of finishes to choose from.

The 20-inch BM16 is renowned for its versatility: Savini Wheels has ensured it suits sports cars, sedans, hatchbacks, pickups, and large SUVs. That is a great advantage for a single rim set!
The multi-spoke pattern leaves a strong impression. You can easily choose from the various bolt patterns and spacings, besides offsets, to upgrade your vehicle. The BM16 is a natural choice for those who live to drive and are looking for durability and value-for-money.

Savini Wheels guarantees made-to-order cast and forged rims that offer style, performance, and quality in equal doses. However, be wary of where you’re buying them from- the US aftermarket is sinking in cheap forgeries.
Rely only on established outlets like AudioCity USA in Santa Fe Springs, among others.
