    Craig Jackson owner of the most recognized auction house of cars, Barrett Jackson gave us a call and wanted a set of wheels for his Veyron. He had selected Cor Forged Venom Duo-Block Wheels are 1 piece forged aluminum that are finished in a titanium brushed look. The front wheel is a massive 20×11 and the rear is a 21×13.

    The Veyron needs to have some seriously rated meat on those wheels so we went with PIRELLI® 1906000 – P ZERO (285/30ZR20) in the front and PIRELLI® 1997400 – P ZERO (355/25ZR21) for the rears which had to be flown in from Italy.

    This is amazing. By far the most beautiful aftermarket wheels on a Veyron.

    If the original wheels got buried up to the wheel arches in a Louisiana swamp, you might!

    It was Texas and that's not the same car.

    I honestly don't recall having seen a Veyron with any wheels other than stock. These look good.

    I remember reading a post on this forum from a well respected member that you couldn't change out the wheels on a Veyron because of some sensors and other engineering reasons. Did you have any such issues? Are there any magic Bugatti wheel and tire sensors that you found? :)

    Other than TPMS sensors, we found no traces of magic, tomfoolery, or science involved with the process. Just wheels :)

    Looks a lot better than standard wheels, which are horrendous. Do the standard tires fit? ADV1 had issues with this before...


    There's a few around...Forgiatti and ADV1 IIRC.

    Ah ... the 64 million dollar question. I doubt it 's ever even attempted but that liability risk is one I'd want answered by Bugatti & Pirelli if I were responsible for installing these.

    I think they LOOK great though.

    The car would look even better WO the promo graphics ... ;)

    Promotional aspect ergo qualifies for some sort of a deduction?

    Or he could spray paint a big phallus on it like that other dude did?

    I wouldn't do it unless the original tires where able to fit. Then again, reaching that speed on the open road is pretty damn tough. I think I'd feel save enough on the autobahn with these tires + wheels though.

    Apparently only 20 veyron owners are in the Bugatti 400 club so far.

    Nice wheels, but I frankly don't see the point. What's wrong with the original ones?
