Steel wheels

Test your steel wheel IQ, nineteenth edition

Our “test your steel wheel IQ” series aims to share our passion for steel wheels and see how good our readers are at recognizing them.

Can you name the make and model that the following wheels come from? In some cases we have blacked out the logo on the center cap because it would have been too easy to guess otherwise. Also, there are several right answers for some of these wheels.

Have fun, and thanks for playing along.
