Introducing the Fuel Off-Road Block – Ken Block Partners with Fuel Wheels
If you’re a fan of internet-famous stunt rally driver Ken Block, then you'll be as pumped as we are about his partnership with Wheel Pros. These new wheels include the Rotiform KB1 and the Fuel Off-Road Block.
Whether you’re a veteran ‘hoonigan’ or you’re new to the motor-madness Ken Block and his team get up to, you’ve likely seen the thrilling videos they’ve put together showcasing their automotive exploits.
(If you’re not familiar, Ken Block is renowned the world over for his rally racing, car stunts, and wildly popular Gymkhana videos.)
As Wheel Pros put it, “[Ken’s] driving talent and rally car expertise have pushed the limits of what is possible in the world of motorsports…”
But we’re ultimately here to talk shop on the specs of the Fuel Block.
Fuel Block Wheel Specs
First, this 6-spoke truck and SUV rim comes chock full of off-road styling and rugged durability. And any KB fan will appreciate the fine details that make this wheel really stand out.
Window vents on the rim flange help it stay cool under pressure, while giving it the rally-race inspired look. More off-road notes can be seen in the wicked simulated beadlock ring. Throw in the F-stamped center cap and you’ve got mad Fuel swagger that brings this off-road symphony to a crescendo.
Whether you’re turning heads on the streets or tearing up the trails, the Fuel Block has the look and build to do it all. Plus, you can choose your personal “Ken-spired” style with three unique finishes: Anthracite, Matte Black or Bronze.
Finally, the closing notes on this masterpiece of a wheel are Ken Block’s signature number “43” and the spoke embossed with the iconic Fuel logo. According the folks Fuel, these are the “final touches that bring enthusiasts one step closer to being a part of the team.”
One of the best things about the autumn launch of these new wheels? It’s just in time to put the Fuel Block right at the top of our personal gift lists. As we all know, a new set of wheels is perhaps one of the best gifts you can give, especially to an enthusiast!
