Artist Coby Gewertz uses his passion for cars to create classic hubcaps on old vinyl records, and the spinning feature makes them look all the more realistic.
The vintage vinyl wheels are created using silkscreen prints made by the artist. The prints are then added onto old or damaged records that would otherwise be headed into the trash. The features of a rotating record adds to the visual aesthetic of this upcycled design.
These creative wheel designs are intricately detailed and takes full advantage of the records's original spinning motion. Screen-printing is the interesting method used to perfect the details of these vintage vinyl wheels. They become even more striking when the shinny vinyl begins to rotate and spin. The vinyl tires feature realistic bolts on the hubcaps resembling a sleek chrome finish.
