Vision Wheels adds that special touch to
make what you ride stand out and be noticed.

Tired of those old OEM steel wheels on your ATV? Want to add
some “Bling Bling” to your ride? Whatever you decide,
swapping out the OEM wheels with some new shinny wheels will add
some style to your quad.
There is a growing number of manufacturers making alloy or
cast aluminum wheels these days for ATVs. We found one that
appears to be tops in the market.
Vision Wheels makes one of the “Flashiest”, if not the best
“Bling Bling” wheels currently on the market. They are sure to
add some style, flash, bling, or whatever you want to call it,
to your quad’s appearance.
Vision Wheels are cast aluminum with a machined finish and
then painted with a powder coat clear coat. The wheel's
finish requires no maintenance, ever. No polishing. No rusting. The Wheels even have
a Lifetime Structural warranty. If you ever break or crack a
Vision ATV wheel, Vision will replace the wheel free of charge. Vision ATV wheels offer multiple sizes, off sets and widths.
Vision supplied us with a set of their “161 Bruiser” wheels
mounted on the all new
Goodyear/Dunlop Rawhide® MT/R radial tires. The new Rawhide MT/R tires have proven traction, a true
radial ply design and ride comfort. The MT/R tire even comes in
the new 14-inch utility size that will fit with Vision’s new 14”
wheel, the “159 Outback”.
We have been thrashing around on the Vision wheels for about
a month now and they have held up nicely. We put the 161
Bruisers to the test by pounding them though thick deep mud,
climbing rocks, jumping over fallen trees, playing in sand, and
dishing out some hard trail riding. Upon close inspection,
before writing this article, we have found that the wheels have
no visible signs of dents or metal fatigue. The wheel’s
finish has held up with only minor scratches. We say minor
scratches because they are hard to see unless you are really
looking for them. The scratches we have found are not
unexpected as we have been purposely abusing the wheels, to get
a full evaluation, with our harsh test environment. We
have reasons to believe the Vision Wheels will stand up to the
wear and tear of an average ATVer. And, if you own a show
quad that doesn't see a lot of terra firma such as ours, the
Vision Wheels should stay like new for as long as you own them.
Within days of putting these wheels on our ATV, we had other
ATV enthusiasts asking for the 411 on the product. Dumping the
OEM steel wheels for these new alloy wheels made our quad stand
out from all other ATVs and gave it a whole new appearance and
