Black Rhino takes SEMA by storm! 

Black Rhino Wheels took SEMA 2017 by storm by coming out with the latest design wheels plus a slew of customized trucks and SUV’s. Named after the tough and mighty Black Rhino from South Africa and an icon of the African bush, all Black Rhino truck and SUV wheels are fabricated from proprietary aluminum alloys that combine light weight with exceptional endurance. They are manufactured in perhaps the most advanced wheel-making facility in the world using the most cutting edge production methodologies. They are engineered to thrive in demanding environments with heavy loads typical to lifted, customized trucks and off highway uses.

One of the crowd favorites is a Jeep Wrangler equipped with Black Rhino’s Armory wheels. Armory is the brutal weapon of choice when your vehicle must absolutely be victorious in the next dangerous off road operation. Straight from a battlezone, this wheel is the right weapon of choice with its bolted face - a dramatic statement of power that is perfect for the regiment of adventure minded tuners. We set our sights to offer one of the most unique off road wheels from Black Rhino down to its unique center cap. This tactical style affirmatively radars an indestructible quality of explosive-proof looks to a whole new caliber.

Black Rhino’s mission was to cover the best range of stock and lifted off highway vehicles, Armory off road rims are available in 17x9.5, 18x9.5, 20x9.5 and 20x12 sizes. Offsets range from -44 to 0mm and five, six and 8-lug bolt patterns, including a 8/180 pattern for newer GMC and Chevrolet trucks. These truck rims sport huge lips to provide safe bead seating for oversized tires.

In the country, Black Rhino wheels are exclusively distributed by Wheel Gallery in San Juan City. Those who want to level up their game can visit the showroom or get them in dealers nationwide or text 0917-880-1111or log on to 


Vision Petron opens Fuel Creativity Exhibit at Bencab Museum

On its 17th year, Vision Petron, the multi-awarded national student art competition of oil industry leader Petron Corporation, opened its Fuel Creativity Exhibit at the Bencab Museum in Baguio, last October 14, 2017.  The month-long exhibit is a retrospective painting exhibition featuring selected works of Vision Petron National Student Art Competition grand prize winners over the years. 

Originally conceptualized as an art competition to inspire young artists from all over the country, Vision Petron has evolved to become a venue for expression, even on social issues such as the environment, and now includes photography, T-shirt design, video-making, and most recently, music. 

Vision Petron’s Fuel Creativity Exhibit showcases the best works of budding Filipino artists from the turn of the millennium, when the competition was first introduced, and reflects the changing themes that embody the best of Filipino values, culture, and heritage. 

Benedicto Cabrera, or Bencab as he is more popularly known, is a National Artist for the Visual Arts, and a staunch presence as a member of the Vision Petron board of judges. Himself a multi-awarded winner of many art competitions as a struggling young artist, Bencab serves as a role model for the thousands of talented Filipino youth who submit their entries in the various Vision Petron competition categories.

At the opening of the Vision Petron Fuel Creativity Exhibit, Bencab remarked, “The collection highlights the artists’ emerging styles, individual methods of self-expression, and search for identity.”


For the 2017 Vision Petron competition, the theme was Tuklas Kagalingan: Rediscovering Filipino Ingenuity. Entries focused on one of our unique strengths as a people, the ingenuity of the Filipino that captures the spirit of innovation and creativity, rooted in our natural resources. Judging was recently completed, and winners will be announced soon.

Every year, Vision Petron wins recognitions, and now has over 150 awards. The Vision Petron Folio, a magazine for youth on Philippine art and culture, has been inducted into the Anvil Hall of Fame for consistently earning the Gold Anvil year after year. Vision Petron also recently bagged four International Association of Business Communications (IABC) awards, including two Awards of Excellence, at the 15th Philippine Quill Awards.

The Vision Petron Fuel Creativity exhibit will run from October 14 to November 26, 2017, at the Indigo Gallery of the Bencab Museum on Km. 6 Asin Road, Tuba, Metro Baguio.
