I have tried this shot myself and found the you need a lot of colours to make the reflections work, also the rim of the wheel makes a good distorted effect and you can get different colours on the spokes. Try spinning the wheel with a slow shutter speed as this give a great effect if you can get it to reflect of something, I used glass and a black background and it worked well, have a try.

Thanks Dave. As the wheel was still attached to the car at a show I suspect the owner might not have been too pleased about me giving it a slow spin! However, an interesting idea.

Thank you for posting shot settings,

I think that the entire hub from left to right should be in focus, right now the left is starting to blur. using a smaller aperture would allow the entire hub to be in focus. an even smaller aperture and the spokes on the left could be in focus, but you may need to use a tripod.

as for composition I would change location a bit to change the reflection to be more identifiable as another car. possibly showing the wheel.

It can pop a little more if you sharpen it, - I did this in mod1, sharpening at 105%, Radius = 0.8, Threshold = 3 using USM.

Mod2 is a radial blur applied to get that wheel spin (-;
