Bad Boy ‘Raptor’ wheel
Originator of “The Bad Boy Wheel,” Sinister Wheel is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with a major new wheel design program.
Designed and CNC-machined in-house at their Turlock, Northern California facility from rotary forged 6061-T6 aluminum, their 5-spoke ‘Raptor’ wheel with extreme 3D cuts is the second of three wheels the company has launched with their “industry first” black and brushed and brushed and black finishes.
It is available in 16 thru 32” in chrome, black and machined, or any color with machined cuts or chrome two-tones.
They are sold with or without matching rotors (in 11.5in, 11.8in, 13in and 18in sizes - with optional proprietary floating caliper set), pulley and performance air cleaner. ABS friendly/compatible configurations are also available for most of Sinister’s wheel designs, some with a choice of cush or non-cush drive hubs.
The company offers over 20 billet wheel designs (plus 3D styles) in its ‘Bad Boy’ line, including the ‘Billet Daddy’, a design that references Sinister’s ‘Big Daddy’ steel step-lip outer and ‘Big Phat Daddy’ billet aluminum soft-lip outer 3/8” 304 stainless steel spoke wheels, a program that Sinister founder Ali Afzal acquired from Road Wing Design in 2002.
