Wheels-icon

Wheels are a customization option in Rocket League. They represent a set of wheels that 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. Wheels from the crates can either be painted or certified, or even both.

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