Metropolitan Wheels.

Metropolitan was a wheel company out of Deluxe that lasted from 1994 to 1996. A lot of the art for the ads was based on the work of photographer Ari Marcopoulos and his photos of New York City. The team included Keith Hufnagel, Bobby Puleo, Ryan Hickey, Jones Keeffe, and more NYC heads.

Ari Marcopoulos took the photo.
