To help you in selecting the right wheels for your truck or SUV, we have provided some tips. In selecting a wheel, the first question that you should be asking yourself is, "Do I want maximum performance or just good looks?". Let's say, your goal is to get a cost-effective wheel so you prefer maximum performance over looks. Possibly you want, an aluminum alloy wheel which is lighter and stronger, reducing millage, saving wear and tear on brakes, of if you travel off road then a set of 4x4 Wheels. Below is some helpful information that will help you with the correct purchase. The major question we get from customers is what is offset? Look below and you will find some simple diagrams to answer that question
• Weight and Size of Wheel. Consider wheel weight and size, the larger the wheel size, the larger the tire, hence the more the wheels and tires weigh. The greater the weight, the harder the engine will work. For the lightest wheel, we recommend aluminum alloy forged wheels. And be sure to pick a wheel with bolt pattern and the wheel that goes in with relation to the hub.
• Design factors. Keep in mind if you are planning to drive off road, not all great looking wheels can provide you maximum performance, or the durability of Off Road Wheels.
Wheels are a statement of style, over the past few years Black Rims are growing in popularity, almost equaling that of Chrome. Since there are several types of wheels that you can find in the market today, it is recommended that you pick the kind of wheel according to your need and personal taste. Your choice of truck wheel is also as equally important as the other parts of your vehicle.
Chrome Wheels have been the most popular wheel for many years. Chrome adds a type of flash to a wheel that other finishes cannot. It also matches the factory accents of most cars, SUVs and Trucks. Chrome is a an alloy, and requires additional skill and expense to produce, so you can expect to pay a bit more for a Chrome Wheel. But the price is worth it, they have a much better shine than other wheels.
Chrome used to be just a high gloss metal finish of nickel and chromium, producing a brilliant shine when polished. But now there is a new finish, Black Chrome. It too can have a brilliant luster and catch the eyes of those you pass by. Chrome adds durability and strength to a basic wheel, it is also capable of withstanding extremes of heat and cold. Yet Chrome and Black Chrome both require monthly maintenance to keep the finish from being damaged by dirt, grease or oils, and this includes brake dust. Here is a good old, but useful suggestion, do not polish Chrome or Black Chrome when the wheels are warm, let them cool in the shade first.
