If you know I’ll do a story on Flickr photos on sneakers, then you should know I’ll do a story on Flickr photos on shoes aka rims aka Wheels of Fortune.

There are 296 Members and about 1,160 photos in this group. It doesn’t have a total focus on car rims, but it a nice mixture of all types of wheels. Its a very nice take on whatever is round.

Here is what the group is about:

For wheels like Car wheels, truck wheels, tractor wheels, forklift wheels, train wheels, toy wheels, bicycle wheels, ferris wheels, motorcycle wheels, antique, rubber, steel, metal, stone, plastic, dolly wheels. Steering wheels accepted too.

Only wheels-not things that could be wheels and ABSOLUTELY NO gambling/casino wheels

If you want some wheels from whips, check out Photomechanica from the group. If that is not good enough, check out MR38 and for some stuff too. robert lz is good for some shots as well. Toni Carcole did this one:

  1. I am always on the lookout for antiques for my house. Garage sales seem to be the best place to find them at a reasonable price.
