The Artie-Finn Relationship, most commonly known as ArtinnFartie or Frankenwheels, was the friendship between Artie Abrams and Finn Hudson.

During their time together, Finn has helped Artie with numerous issues; for example, standing up to his teammates and rescuing him from a port-a-potty in the Pilot. Artie has also done things for Finn like dedicating songs and showing his support towards him. For quite a long time, they were the two main lead male singers for New Directions. They have also both been in both glee club and the football team together.

Finn is told to bully Artie by his teammates, he ends up refusing and rescues Artie from the port-a-potty instead. When Puck asks why Finn is helping "that loser", Finn responds by saying they are all losers and that he's not afraid of being called a loser because he can accept that is what he is. Finn then wheels Artie back to the auditorium and they perform Don't Stop Believin' together with the New Directions. (Pilot)

During the performance of Proud Mary, Finn sings the line about the song being for Artie. When the song finishes, Finn is one of the people who is surrounding Artie, giving him a pat on the back and smiling at him. (Wheels)

When the Glee Club comes up with a plan to show their support for Finn and Quinn, they perform Lean on Me which Artie has a lead solo on. (Ballad)

After Finn's performance of Hello, I Love You, Artie reaches out for a high five and Finn reaches out his hand to high five him, but then the high five ends up being rejected. (Hell-O)

Artie asks Finn to get him onto the football team in order to try and win Tina back. Instead, Coach Beiste takes her anger out on Finn and kicks him off the football team. (Audition)

Artie interrupts Finn and Azimio's fight in the corridor. They share a handshake, symbolizing they are friends. When Artie says "bouncy bouncy" to Rachel, Finn tells him to stop. Finn and Artie also perform Stronger together and Coach Beiste finally allows them to join the football team. (Britney/Brittany)

Finn and Artie perform She's Not There, along with the other football team members. When the hockey team is about to slushie them, Artie cowers behind Finn to avoid getting hit. Later on, when most of the football team have quit, Artie is one of the players who is still playing alongside Finn. Artie and Finn also perform in Thriller/Heads Will Roll together. (The Sue Sylvester Shuffle)

During Artie and Mike's performance of PYT (Pretty Young Thing), Finn ends up dancing in his chair and at the very end of the song, he yells "tenderoni" showing his enthusiasm. (Silly Love Songs)

To help Puck pass his European Geography test (and to graduate), Finn gets most of the guys from the club to help him out with a plan. In the plan, he uses Artie as the distraction by telling him that he is going to fall into the pool that Puck is cleaning. The two of them later help quiz Puck with the other guys in the choir room. (Choke)

Before the seniors perform In My Life, Artie gives a heartfelt speech saying that with all the dedications being thrown around McKinley, he wanted to make sure that Finn didn't get missed out. He then points out that the reason why the song is being dedicated to Finn is because Artie feels that Finn is someone he never thought would be his friend when he first rolled down the hallways. He had their backs before Glee club was cool and due to the fact that he was on the football team, he had a lot to lose and people forget the sacrifices he made. Due to all this, Artie and New Directions wanted to thank him. Finn is clearly very touched by this gesture and after the song ends, the two of them share a hug. (Goodbye)

With Mr. Schue putting Glee Club in Finn's hands, Finn considers ideas for Sectionals for the theme "Foreign". When Finn thinks of the idea to perform the band Foreigner's songs in foreign languages and with foreign dance moves, Artie asks, "Wait, are you serious, that was your best idea?"

When Finn asks Santana, Puck, Mike, Quinn and Mercedes to mentor the Glee Club, he first introduces them to the newbies. He says they were Show Choir Legends and that they could be President of United States next year to which Artie replies, "I'm not too sure about that.." (Thanksgiving)

Due to New Directions' loss at Sectionals, the Glee Club splits into different school clubs because the season is over.
