Motionlite wheel illumination – Click above to watch the videos after the jump

For those of you that roll like this – and we know you're out there, so stand up – Motionlite retractable lighting provides another way for you to accessorize your alloys. Wheel illumination is exactly what it sounds like: an LED mounted on a power telescoping six-inch arm in the wheel well throws photons in seven different colors on your rims. The system is remote-controlled and universal, so it'll work anywhere, anytime. All you need is $499 to make it yours.

If you need to see it in action before you pull the trigger, check out the gallery of photos below and the videos after the jump, or you'll find them on Unique Autosports: Miami.

      No officer I wasn't trying to cause trouble...
      no sir, they're not for that either...
      these lights are emergency work lights in case you have a flat...
      but you know, now that you mentioned it none of them look flat...
      I'll just turn them off, I need to get home anyway...
      "Law & Order" is on soon and my mom doesn't like to watch it alone...
      goodnight officer...

      I can see it now... mid-90's Crown Vics and Caprices, candy colored paint jobs, and jacked up on 24's that light up. Personally, lighting up the wheels just gives thugs to shoot at when "doin the deal" goes bad.

      Tacky!!!!

      Look at the picture above....

      Seriously? Who the heck would ghetto up an Aston Martin with these things? For real!!!

      This is the perfect mod for someone who wants to make sure police can easily pick them out of traffic. I can just imagine the thought process...

      "Hmm, look at that ricer with the illuminated wheels. I wonder if there's anything I can pull him over for?"

      These LED light sticks are the poster child for why mods belong under the hood, and no where else.

      They need to be paired with undercarriage lights and lighted curb feelers. That would be da bomb

      I'd to think of the person that plops down 200k for an Aston only to install this on it. Kind of like buying a really expensive bottle of wine and sticking some ice cubes in it.

      My guess is these are illegal in many, if not all states.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I found it rather illuminating.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Thank God!

        DUMB idea tha will make it easier for cops to spot Pimps

        I think the lights themselves are probably legal, but the lights sticking out of the wheel well is a bit of a hazard. No more than a side-view mirror but still a hazard.

        I think on the right car in the right circumstances these could be quite cool! Parked! Like at a show!

      This is an extremely poorly thought out accessory, it doesn't look right at all. I actually own an Aston Martin (n24 set up for racing) and I'm going to have a spare set of wheels painted with glow in the dark paint. I would never even consider buying this horrible product, many things are wrong with it:

      - The website is extremely poorly designed,

      -The pricing is too high (and I would know I've designed, engineered and sold automotive accessories successfully)

      -It uses the wrong kind of LED's in the wrong locations.

      The owner is obviously an insecure and desperate for attention and made this for himself and his friends but was too dumb to build it correctly. I hope he realizes how stupid his product is and stops selling it. What a shameful abomination.

      Gangsta will like it.

      Very high tech, I can see a lot of R&D was put into these :)

      Just Say NO.
