Polaris Slingshot on Fiery-Red Forgiato Wheels Looks Like a Trike from Hell

Though more famous for the golden rims installed on the Bentley Mulsanne and the rather tasteless matching ones he got for his Can-Am Spyder, DJ Columbia BT surprises us with a cool move. He went for the same top-drawer rim specialists Forgiato, but decided to skip the gold finish in favor of a bright, fiery red color.

Forgiato rims are a matter of either love or hate, provided we skip the price tag and the music video-inspired desirability. However, the Decimo-L wheels Forgiato supplied for the Polaris Slingshot look cool and are a very evil match for this trike.

The Forgiato metal was color-matched by Butler Tire so the rims are naturally integrated with the Slingshot. With the Polaris' edgy, aggressive lines and low stance, these Decimo-L look even better and sportier. Their organic design is a most welcome addition to the overall attire of the Slingshot.Cool aftermarket rims are probably one of the few things that can make the Slingshot look better
Now, they are still a matter of personal preference. Some might favor more traditional designs that hark back to performance-oriented, racey rims, but if you're up for wheels people won't forget anytime soon, this choice is definitely one worth looking into.

Forgiato supplied 24" front wheels and a 22" rear one to keep the stance of the trike. The Slingshot just became road-legal in Connecticut in early July, and the rest of the states that still ban it are expected to follow the same ruling.

For the price you'll have to drop Forgiato a line and ask. Just remember that these Luminoso street rims come standard in rose gold and chrome, and painting them will cost your extra. Anyway, we do like this Slingshot, as it lacks the crappy bling factor.
