Winner John Battersby’s New Black Rhino Wheels

This rig was in need of new rollers… Black Rhino Wheels supplied them.

If you remember all the way back to this past December, we featured an awesome giveaway with Black Rhino Wheels where we collaborated to give a set of new rollers to one winner, a deserving TREAD reader. You all voted in the contest and selected our winner, John Battersby! Well, he’s got the wheels on his 2019 Ford Ranger XLT FX4 and we’ve gotta say, they look awesome. John chose a good-looking set of Black Rhino Armory wheels that have earned him lots of “head snaps” from other drivers on the road. We can’t blame them; if we saw this truck in the wild, we’d be snapping our heads to look, too.

John bought this 2019 Ford Ranger XLT FX4 in late 2019, used with 12,000 miles on it. “The whole idea behind the truck was a budget way to get out and explore during the lockdown. Budget was the key thing,” he explains, so a set of free wheels came in clutch.  “All of the work was done by friends and I in garages and driveways, as a way to save money.”

Everything’s better with with fresh rollers
