Russian designer Anton Schnaider (SILA project group) drew his attention to the fact that the appearance of a car's wheels have been long forgotten. His solution is a logical, aesthetically pleasing enhancement that he calls Captunes. Captunes are caps of one, solid color (intended to match the car's entire body) to make the auto's overall aesthetic look more seamless and sleek.

At this point, the wheel of a modern car is an afterthought; wheels are just some kind of separate, round piece of rubber, iron and metal. Anton Schnaider is looking to change all of that with his revolutionary Captunes, which allow for complete car customization. The auto enthusiasts of the world will be thrilled when Captunes come into mass production.
