Wheels-icon

Wheels are a customization option in Rocket League. They rest below the battle-car body, and each wheel set has a unique rim design and tire treads. Wheels record the distance driven while equipped. Most (but not all) wheels can be painted and certified. All wheels from crates can be painted or certified, or both. Wheels are purely cosmetic items.

Click on wheels with a paint bucket icon to see their painted variants.

(Note: All very rare, import, exotic and fan reward wheels have painted variants.)

Common

Most common wheels can be unlocked simply by completing matches. Alchemist, Almas, OEM, Stern and Vortex are unlocked by default.

On August 3, 2017, Psyonix introduced painted variants of common wheels, which are classified as exotic rarity and can be obtained via the trade in system or player trading.[1]

  • The Mothership wheels were supposed to be a reward for RLCS Season 5 World Championship ticket-holders called "Mothership Pro" but a bug caused them available to every player in the game.
