How to choose the right wheels and tyres for your car!
There are millions of wheel designs, sizes, styles, finishes and brands out there and quite often, people regret their choice in selecting the right wheel for their car when they are paid for and it"s too late!
Choosing a new set of wheels for your car can be a fun exercise and definitely ad a whole new look and feel to your baby... your car that is!
When choosing the right wheels for your car, you need to first consider; how much do you have to spend and what can you afford to pay for new tyres in the future? Yes purchasing the rims is a one off cost but you can spend anywhere from $60 per tyre to around the $1250 mark depending on the size and make of your wheels.
Let us give you a rough idea of what you should consider when selecting your next set of rims!
Believe it or not there IS a style of wheel out to suit every car in the world! The style is generally determined by the number of spokes the wheel has and the sharpness/smoothness of the design.
The more common spoke numbers range from 4 spoke to 10 spoke. More elaborate designs range from a solid plate to the good old 100 spoke pimp style.
The one most common is the traditional 5 spoke, but even that can vary to a 5 split spoke and 5 pattern spoke.
You will need to work out what kind of design you are looking for and if it will match your ride.
Do you want an over elaborate pattern design with shapes and bits n" pieces all over the place to match a crazy bright and "over the top" car? Perhaps a smooth, stock looking wheel to match a conservative style car with smooth lines? What about a sharp modern design for a slick sports car or a low weight racing design for a car that means business on the track?
The finish of the wheel is really what defines it as why this is one of the most important factors in choosing the right wheel for your car!
When a chrome rim is put on the wrong car, it completely cheapens the look and feel. Chrome is usually reserved for the "over the top" Auto Salon style cars but can also ad some mean bling to a pimped out S.U.V. or sports truck.
Shadow chrome and polished alloy is a more suitable option for a classy modern look and can usually be found in most wheel designs.
Black on black? Hell yeah!
Black wheels with a chrome or polished lip can make a black care look insane! It can be a classy move and still add the whole bling aspect to your ride!
"Factory style" alloys are more frowned upon than the more common finished but if you are looking for that clean factory feel then this would be your best bet!
Gold wheels are commonly found on WRX"s and Honda"s. I am yet to see a nice sound match on any other modern car though. This is where basic colour rules come into play; where just a complementary colour and contrast colour are generally the best way to go. Not two contrast colours. (those being the gold and the colour of your car... Unless your car is white of coarse)
