Adventurous Spirit Included Courtesy of Fifteen52 Wheels
Here, at Fifteen52 Wheels, our history with Volkswagen runs as deep as our passion for motorsports. From the adrenaline-pumping Volkswagen Passat Drift Taxi driven by Tanner Foust to the sleek Volkswagen GLI Super Touring Concept build, we've always had a soft spot for cool VWs. In fact, our own parking lot boasts a lineup of Volkswagen vehicles, including the iconic VW Beetle and the versatile Tiguan. Years back, in the summer of 2020, our collaboration with Volkswagen of America on the Atlas Basecamp Concept marked a new chapter in our partnership. Now four years later, we figured the 2024 VW Atlas Cross Sport is the next logical step.
Overlanding, off-road exploration, and adventure-ready vehicles have captured our hearts, and we know we're not alone in this passion. That's why we're thrilled to be a part of Volkswagen of America's response to the growing demand for vehicles that are ready for any adventure. Their all-new Cross Sport is set to make waves in the off-road scene. Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing and Strategy at Volkswagen of America, summed it up perfectly when he spoke about our Atlas Basecamp in 2020:
"Our goal is to provide customers with an extensive catalog of accessory options that cater to their desires for distinctive styling and functionality."
Hein hit the nail on the head when he said that, and we couldn't agree more. The range of accessories available for your 2024 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport – in all its available trim packages – is truly impressive, and we may be a bit biased, but the Traverse MX wheels are undoubtedly our favorite part of the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport’s offerings. After all, wheels can make or break the look of a vehicle. That’s why we do what we do here at Fifteen52.
There's always an immediate part of the picture that captures the eye when you first see the Traverse MX wheel, now available through Volkswagen Dealers in the USA – their color. These wheels come in two enticing options, just like the ones we offered back in 2020: the first is an exclusive color created just for Volkswagen, Radiant Silver, and the other is our sophisticated and timeless Frosted Graphite. Both colors complement any OEM Atlas color scheme, and while Frosted Graphite is always a classic choice, the exclusive Radiant Silver plays well with the Atlas Cross Sport’s trim and emblems, no matter your paint color.
Measuring in at 17x8 -34, the 10-spoke wheel design gives the 2024 Atlas Cross Sport components an edgier, off-road aesthetic, and sets your Cross Sport apart from the crowd even further. The outer ring recess is a thoughtful touch, protecting your valve stem when you venture off the beaten path. Another perk? You can reuse your factory wheel bolts and wheel bolt covers, as we’ve taken the care to ensure these wheels fit up hub-centric just as the other OEM wheels offered on the Atlas Cross Sport.
We're proud to say that the Traverse MX wheel is a supplier-branded wheel that you can drive down to your local dealership, order by part number, and have installed right there. Prefer online shopping? No problem! You can easily order both Radiant Silver and Frosted Graphite directly from the official Volkswagen Parts website and have them delivered to your doorstep from a dealership near you, should you fancy yourself a DIY type of installer.
The Traverse MX wheels are the perfect addition to the Cross Sport’s styling queues, seamlessly integrating with the OEM styling and exterior accessories, while still showing the people of the road – or the trail – that your Atlas is more than capable of tackling any would-be challenges on your route. The wheels perfectly complement the Atlas Cross Sport’s adventurous spirit, elevating its style and functionality to new heights, and continuing our much-loved trend of cool VWs.
The wait is finally over, and we couldn't be more thrilled to share this exciting news with all you VW fans and Fifteen52 fans. The result of impeccable work from both Fifteen52 teams and VW teams is a vehicle that exudes an adventurous aura. If you're in the market for your next adventure-ready vehicle, we highly recommend visiting your local Volkswagen dealership to test drive the 2024 Atlas Cross Sport. Trust us; it's worth the adventure.
