It’s no secret we here at ESM love a good monoblock wheel.

It’s also no secret we love rims that are clean, multi-spoke and go well with high-end cars and exotics.

So it’s no surprise we fell in love with the GMG 130R Monoblock wheel when we saw it on this badass Audi R8:

Here are the features of the GMG 130R Monoblock wheel from GMG’s official website:

  • Fully forged monoblock wheel with scalloped spoke
  • Direct bolt on replacement retain all factory mounting hardware and TPMS sensors
  • Suitable for road or track use – lightweight and strong
  • Clears all Big Brake kits on the market including Brembo, Stoptech, AP Racing, Alcon, PCCB
  • Made in the USA
  • Built to come out to the edge of the fender for an aggressive look without rubbing and the need for a space.
  • Available in an assortment of colors

You have to admit, it’s a pretty sick wheel that goes well with any Porsche or Audi.

Would you be willing to throw down at least $1,600 for these wheels?  We think it's worth it.

The only downside?  At the 19″ size, each rim costs about $1,600.

That’s right – $1,600 bones. Per rim.

For 4 wheels, you’re looking at a decent engagement ring; a week long vacation in Europe with your significant other; a Chanel handbag for your wife…  Rent for two or three months.

But damn, they look really good.

We say screw rent and go with the rims.
