What you need to know
- No this isn't a glitch.
- Yes there really are 200 of these things to claim.
- Playground Games either went mad in quarantine or are just being really, really nice.
- As it turns out, it was a "mistake", update below.
Update: So it definitely wasn't a glitch and someone sent a tweet out from the Forza Horizon Twitter account. But now the wheelspins are gone and nobody can claim them any more.

This "mistake" has a ton of people raging that they missed out, so if you cashed in, like I managed to, you got lucky, it seems.
Original post: If you don't have much going on this weekend and you're a Forza Horizon 4 player then you're in luck. It looks like we're all getting a whopping 200 Super Wheelspins for free. That's a lot of cars, credits and vanity items to earn.
It'll also take you an age to claim them all so get a beverage and get comfy.
We don't exactly know why they're giving these out. Maybe they're being really nice given the current global situation, maybe someone in the studio went completely mad. Maybe it's both. But some at first thought it might be a glitch, but it most definitely is not.

If you're low on credits or looking to tick off some of the last cars in your garage then this is a pretty solid chance to do both. I've claimed half mine as I write this and while I already have most of the cars, through selling them and the credit rewards I've already made 15 million credits.
To get the free wheelspins simply load up the game and head into your messages. There will be a new message from the Forza Horizon community team telling you that you've been gifted the Super Wheelspins. Hit the A button on the controller and start redeeming!

Sadly, however, my garage is completely full...
200 chances to win some leopard print boots or cars i have numerous duplicates of already? Thanks Playground!
I don't have these yet
Not in my message
Nah not there for me yet?
I had 20 waiting. Not 200.
Was simple incompetence. 'Owen's McLaren' 2.0.
