About Us

The ultimate source for custom wheels

Founded back in 1977 by Takeshi Tanaka, WORK Wheels began in Japan with a modest capital. Over the many years of successful business, WORK Wheels are now a household name and regarded as one of Japan's premier manufacturers of high quality, aftermarket performance wheels. 

Takeshi Tanaka's entrepreneurial spirit continues to inspire and live on through the thousands of wheels produced by WORK for the many fans he has influenced over the decades.

Supreme Build Quality

Built with pride and the attention you'd expect from highly skilled craftsmen, each 1, 2 and 3-piece wheel is manufactured and completed to the highest safety standards. Multiple testing during the manufacturing process ensures the wheels are true and meet the high standards expected from WORK Wheels.

Each WORK wheel is tailor made in Japan to your exact specification. So you get wheels to fit your car, that are your style, with your fitment. Why settle for mass produced fast food hamburger when you can order your favourite cut of steak, cooked exactly as you like it?


Advanced Technology

WORK Wheels focus heavily on the technology used in rim forming and the rim barrel in a WORK wheel is what sets their alloys apart from the competition.

The rim barrel is the part of the wheel that takes most of the load of the vehicle. WORK Wheels is one of the only companies in the world that has developed and used a ‘Solid Rim Flange’ which provides the strength.

Whilst most companies boast about being ‘forged’, that process only applies to the centre of the wheel. Having a forged centre disk with spun rim barrels doesn’t make much difference in the strength. The solid rim flange and a thicker barrel on WORK Wheels give them the strength advantage over other wheels on the market.


WORK Wheels adopt an ‘on demand’ system, meaning that your orders are tailor made to your exact specifications. This allows you to get the correct size and offset for your car and body style, so you get exactly what you want with no need to compromise.

WORK Wheels operate 2 large factories in Japan that build their 1, 2 and 3-piece wheels. From start to finish, the employees carefully create your wheels with the attention and care that you would expect from such a globally renowned leader. From initial casting through to painting, the whole process is managed in-house to ensure the highest quality.

Each and every wheel is shipped straight from Japan and delivered to our UK distributor Driftworks Ltd. in Birmingham.
