Two Models To Choose From For All Types Of Racing & Automotive Needs:
Stock-Car Model: The Stock-Car Model is preferred for NASCAR racing support and is designed to match the spec wheels driven on Winston Cup stock cars. Also supports other stock car racing series, particularly in racing car styles that do not use chrome wheels.
Checkered Flag & Indy-Licensed "PonchoWheels" Models Available For Retail
Many retailers at speedway souvenir shops, convenience stores, auto centers, and specialty racing stores prefer the standard "Checkered Flag" version of PonchoWheels to stimulate impulse purchases. This decoration includes the crossed checkered flag imprint plus the PonchoWheels trademark imprint on the front and back sidewalls.
An Indy-Licensed PonchoWheel model is also available for retail merchandising.
Poncho Wheels' ponchos are lightweight in design which allows them to fit into the capsule. Our standard adult poncho are 1-mil thick and measure 48" wide x 36" tall with a hood. These lightweight ponchos are sturdy enough to be used multiple times if the user desires - alternatively, the ponchos are lightweight enough that discarding them after one use is appropriate if it is more convenient, particularly since the user will still have the permanent ball or wheel capsule. Ponchos are easily re-inserted into the capsule provided all of the air is squeezed out - Re-Insertion Instructions demonstrate this simple technique.
“Billboard” Imprinting: Most, if not all, large-volume-producing
poncho manufacturers imprint in what is called a “repeat” pattern on the
ponchos, with a single, smaller logo repeated across the ponchos multiple times.
With the media pick-up potential at major outdoor events, and our clients’
desires to promote various products, we have pushed the imprint size to the
limits to maximize the PR value of the poncho. Poncho Wheels’
ponchos offer unique “billboard” size logo imprinting - we have done logos up
to 18” wide and have covered nearly all of the imprintable area on our ponchos
with multiple logos.
Custom Promotional Packaging Options When In-A-Wheel Ponchos Are Not
Required: Since we think like a creative agency, we have driven our operation
to offer custom packaging for ponchos that does not conform to standard
industry offerings. We have done custom-imprinted cards, coupons, brochures,
etc. that can be inserted along with the ponchos in its custom polybag. We have
also done custom printed labels for the exterior of the poncho's polybag which
are much more attractive than standard offerings which typically imprint only
the logo on the polybag.
Complete Collateral Support & Assembly: For other collateral items, such as printed promotional support materials or self-mailers for Poncho Wheels, we offer complete assembly of any premium item, such as Poncho Wheels, with collateral materials which allows door-step delivery at your warehouse . . . ready for turn-around shipping to your event sites, application of mailing labels, etc. . . . without costly labor for domestic assembly/fulfillment.
Direct Manufacturing: We are the manufacturer - so you are dealing direct
on your project, not through a third-party agent.
PonchoBalls & PonchoWheels ponchos are lightweight in design which allows them to fit into the capsule. Our standard adult poncho are 1-mil thick and measure 48" wide x 36" tall with a hood. These lightweight ponchos are sturdy enough to be used multiple times if the user desires - alternatively, the ponchos are lightweight enough that discarding them after one use is appropriate if it is more convenient, particularly since the user will still have the permanent ball or wheel capsule.

Imprinting Creates Promotional Impact For Sponsored Projects
PonchoBalls & PonchoWheels can be easily customized for sponsored programs. Typically, custom logos are imprinted only on the capsule, with the blank white poncho inside. For large-volume projects, the poncho can be completely customized as well. Please email us for details on imprinting.
Unsurpassed Quality Via Unique QA Sampling Program
You won't find better poncho than those in PonchoBalls & PonchoWheels! That's because we take quality-assessment samples from every production-lot of ponchos that we manufacture. If the samples do not meet our quality standards for defined production parameters, we reject the entire production-lot. This quality sampling method is unique in our industry and contributes to poncho quality is unsurpassed. The seams are stronger than the material and, on custom-imprinted projects, the poncho imprinting is as good as you'll find. We are so proud of our quality that we ask prospective customers to do a side-by-side comparison of our quality with alternatives. On the printing with custom-imprint projects, there is no comparison - we win hands down.
Likewise, PonchoBalls & PonchoWheels capsules are designed to last a lifetime. Capsules are made from virtually indestructable ABS plastic. Capsules are tested in quality assurance laboratories to ensure they retain their locking integrity. Capsules are designed to withstand 1,000 open-and-closing cycles and still retain the same locking "click" that you feel the first time you tighten the capsules halves together. The decoration of the balls and wheels are also routinely assessed for quality - take a look at the red wheel-ring on the Stock-Car Model for how precise they are painted! Each model is designed to emulate the real wheel.
PonchoBalls' & PonchoWheels' quality is even evident when the capsules are opened, revealing ponchos that are neatly packed into the capsule. The identical folding method is used on every PonchoBall and PonchoWheel to give it this high-quality look even inside the capsule!
