    Fondmetal has been around since 1972, some may remember them from their involvement in F1 racing. Recently their presence has been mostly focused in Europe.


    Fondmetal is now making a new push to bring their wheels back into the US market, and we are the first to offer these to the US market! Most fitments are stocked within the US and ready to ship!


    Most impressive is that Fondmetal wheels are all TUV approved! Not many manufacturers these days spend the time or money acquire this.


    9RR Matte Black, Silver, and Titanium!


    Wheel Weights:
    18x8 - 19.1 lbs
    19x8.5 - 21.1 lbs
    19x9.5 - 21.9 lbs
    20x8.5 - 24.1 lbs
    20x9 - 25.2 lbs
    20x11 - 27.0 lbs



    Available 5x120 fitments:
    18x8 +40
    19x8.5 +35/32
    19x9.5 +32
    20x8.5 +30/+48

    I had a chance to take a look at these in person and I was impressed by the quality.
    The wheels are surprisingly light and look fantastic!


    Here are some real world photos of their Porsche centerlock fitment:

    Do you have anything that would fit a Tesla Roadster?

    Unfortunately Fondmetal doesnt have a 4x100 fitment, however I do have a great option for you!
    I would recommend the TE37Vs as Volk makes this in a 4x100 16x8 +25 17x8.5 +30 which will fit your Roadster perfectly!

    Here is a set on an Exige

    I will PM you with the details.

    Heres a set of Fondmetal 9XR SuperTouring 20x9 going out to a Mercedes ML

    I personally think this wheel would look perfect on an X5 or X3, looks almost like the OEM style.


    I was impressed by the machine work on these wheels:

    If you look closely at the silver part of the spokes, the lines you see are actually all machined grooves, and then the wheel is clearcoated so it feels smooth to the touch!

    This is the Fondmetal wheel I want for my Model S.

    Why won't Fondmetal make a Model S fitment? Of all high end cars, reducing rotational mass is the most important for Model S.

    Those are amazing wheels! They're some of the lightest out on the market right now from what I've seen.

    If you're interested in a set, you'll want to look at the 5x120 bolt pattern, which is the same as BMW.

    Fondmetal actually offers a 20x9 +29 20x10 +41 which will actually fit perfect on the Model S!
    They also offer a 19x9 +29 which would work perfectly for a square Tesla setup

    Quite a nice upgrade over the OEMs, and only 19lbs!

    Here are some high quality shots of the Fondmetal 9RRs in 20x9 we had custom finished in Black Chrome with a clear coat (for durability)
    This set is going out to a fellow TMC customer, definitely a one of a kind set!

    Our customer Curt had us refinish a set of Fondmetal 9RRs for him in Black Chrome!
    The 9RRs are built in Italy, and TUV approved, and turned out incredible in the custom finish!


    Here are some shots of the 20x9 +30 Black Chrome 9RRs installed which we wrapped in 245/40/20 Continental DWs and mounted with OEM TPMS sensors.
