Wheels and Rims

Often considered the same, the wheels and rims are a very important esthetic and functional part of your car. In the more strict lexical meaning, the rim is the central part of the wheel that sustains the tire, while the wheel is the entire complex. Most online and offline car parts shops offer a large variety of rims, usually blending the two notions together as wheels and rims. There are two different types of rims out there: the cheap, ordinary ones, which need a wheel cover to improve their aspect and the more expensive, esthetic ones that go by themselves.

 Wheels ↦ Rims

The trick about a good rim and a balanced wheel is to match the rim with the tire. If you use a too wide or too narrow rim, the tire will wear out quicker and could even get you in trouble on the road. The most dangerous moments with an unfit rim is when taking a turn, as the car can lose its balance if the wheels are not as steady as they should.

Therefore, the most important thing, when choosing a rim, is to match it with your car model. The online shops that offer you car parts and accessories usually provide with a sorting service so that you can pick the exact rim and wheel for your cars’ model and year of manufacturing. However, if you want to explore by yourself, you’re welcomed to do so, just try to stay in the limits of your car’s original wheel proportions.

You can also choose, depending on your budget, if you want to buy used wheels and rims, new, already made ones or maybe you’d fancy some custom made rims with something personal on them.
