The Black Wall or Basic Wheel (most often abbreviated as BW) is one of many Hot Wheels Wheel Types. This wheel has largely been replaced by the concave Five-Spoke wheel design, presumably due to the tendency of the convex hub to scrape against the side walls of track sets and wear off its chromium finish.
