You can't go much more extreme than Worx.
The Worx Off-Road wheel company is introducing a bunch of fresh wheels for 2022. After launching at the SEMA show in 2012 as Worx Alloy, the rebranded wheelmaker specializes in aggressive wheels for pickups, the Jeep Gladiator and others. Worx Off-Road works with parent company Design Infini, which also owns Gear Off Road, Motiv Wheels, Centerline, Fittipaldi Off Road and Fittipaldi wheels. The company fully admits that its wild style might not be for everyone, but we guess that's what being unique is all about
The Worx brand stands out with two features: its signature lip and distinct milling. That lip is serrated, which adds to the aggressive look, and they feature drop point raised milling. That differs from standard spot milling by bringing more depth to the workpiece. All wheels feature the Worx name too, "its stamp of approval for quality."
Worx makes both forged and cast wheels, and the new 818-821 series is the latest in the lineup. The 818, 819 and 820 are available in forged and cast and in polished and red tint finishes; the 821 is only available in cast and in black. On the company website, they all look properly impressive on a selection of trucks and off-road looking Jeeps. Most are lifted and spaced out, and Worx even shows a pic of a Ford F-150 six-wheeler to drive the point home.
We'll start with the 818, which is "meticulously milled for the cleanest look." The deep-dish wheel has straight spokes along with the milling and serrated edge. They're offered in black milled, red milled and two tone, which is black with a machined red face. They come in both 20-inch and 22-inch sizes, with 5, 6 and 8 lugs. We think these would look best on a Ford F-150 Tremor pickup.
The 819 features angled Y-spokes that spiral around the cool and intricate center cap. Like the 818 it features the drop point milling and serrated edge with the Worx name. This one is only available with a black milled finish. They also come in 20- and 22-inch sizes, in 5-, 6- or 8-lug configurations. These feel like Jeep wheels to us, more likely a Gladiator, but we could imagine them on a Wrangler too.
The 820s are the wildest of the bunch with a flower-like circular pattern and slotted accents near the center. Worx says the turbine-inspired configuration "bridges the gap between conventional and reimagined design," and we agree. This one is only available with a black milled finish, and comes in 20x10-inch sizes (as opposed to 20x9 above) and 22x12. It can fit 5-, 6- or 8-lug hubs.
The 821s are probably the most standard looking wheels of the group. They're not deep dish and Worx says the spokes are reinforced. It's made for maximum impact distribution, like when you bang an unexpected boulder out on the trail. It comes in gloss black in 20- and 22-inch sizes with 5-, 6- and 8-lug configurations.
Like we said, these Worx wheels aren't for everyone. But if you want to stand out in a sea of off-road trucks, Jeep and Ford Broncos, they could be exactly what you're looking for. Find them at WorxOffRoad.com and on its social channels @WorxOffRoad. And if you're looking for a dealer go to atdwheels.com/dealers. They can set you up and ship them out.
