What are Deep Dish Rims?

Deep dish rims refer to wheels with a deeper than usual lip or outer rim, resulting in a more concave appearance. The term is commonly used in the automotive industry to describe a particular style of wheel that has become popular in recent years.

They are typically wider than stock wheels and feature a larger offset, pushing the wheel further out from the vehicle’s hub. This gives the wheel a more aggressive stance and can improve the vehicle’s handling by increasing the tyre’s contact patch.

While deep dish rims were initially associated with muscle cars and other high-performance vehicles, they are now commonly used on many vehicles, including trucks, SUVs, and even some exotic sports cars. They are available in various finishes and styles, from classic five-spoke designs to more modern mesh or split-spoke patterns.
