Tips on buying rims

Tips on buying Custom wheels

Adding alloy rims kicks your vehicle up a notch in a jiffy. Some customers just buy the rim preferring to buy the tire in their country. It is best to buy the rim/tire package. The package includes the custom wheels you choose in addition the correct size tires you will need to make the vehicle stay the same as it was stock. Generally if you put oversized tires your speedometer won’t be accurate, in addition the gear ratio in your drive train will change. This is bad news now your speedometer is reading 40 kph and your actually going 65 kph! In addition going up a hill and your vehicle is bogging down. So it’s very important to get the right size tires. Also known as Plus Sizing.

A wheel and tire package just makes sense. Lets say you have a Toyota Vigo, the Vigo came with 16 inch rims and tires stock from the factory. Now you are purchasing 20 inch rims. Your original 16 inch tires will not work on 20 inch rims. So in most cases people are buying larger custom wheels then what came with their vehicle. So it’s very convenient to get the new custom wheels and tires in one package, known as the “Wheel and Tire Package”.

Generally Wheel and Tire packages are a great bargain

Generally you also get a Deal, because you are buying wheels and tires. Basically you take them out of the box, mount them up and away you go. Just as easy as changing a tire only x 4.

If you only buy rims from us and then go price out 20 inch tires at the local tire store you may be shocked because the prices locally for just these low profile tires are expensive.
