RTX Wheels to Introduce New Wheel Designs in U.S.

RONKONKOMA, NY (06.07.2019) – RTX Wheels, a division of THIBERT and Canada’s leading manufacturer and distributor of automotive wheels, will be rolling out several new wheel designs to the U.S. market this summer. Among the new designs is the luxurious Deutschman D01.

Deutschman D01

“When the RTX group contacted me to do a new line of SUV wheels, I jumped at the opportunity,” said Paul Deutschman, the designer behind the Duetschman D01. “The wheel really customizes the vehicle to your tastes and to the individual’s taste, and the Deutschman design is a great opportunity for the SUV owner to put a set of wheels on their vehicle that sets the right stance and gives the right feel.”

The Deutschman D01 is a sleek, well-balanced SUV wheel that was designed with athleticism and a strong character in mind.

Along with the Deutschman D01, RTX is also introducing four other new models this summer:

Gobi

· Gobi – The Gobi wheel design has an aggressive look and a sturdy outline. The wheel model is compatible with the majority of pickup trucks offered on the market now, such as Ram, Chevrolet, Ford and GMC. It is available 18’’ and 19’’. This wheel is offered in two different finishes: gloss black with red lip and satin black with satin gray spokes.

It’s offered in a timeless finish: gunmetal.

“Our goal with these new designs is to give Americans the opportunity to add their own tastes and styles to the vehicles they drive every day,” said Patrick O’Hara, THIBERT’s vice president of business development, public relations and marketing for North America. “This is a tremendous opportunity for truck and car owners to get great-looking, quality wheels at an affordable price.”

The family-owned RTX Wheels was established in 2003 and initially sold only three different models of wheels. The company now works with designers to offer more than 150 different wheel options for every car and truck category through a network of more than 10,000 retailers.

RTX Wheels will be set up at Booth 45213 in the Las Vegas Convention Center at this year’s SEMA Show. For more information about RTX Wheels, visit www.rtxwheels.com or contact your local retailer.
