This week’s topic is among the favorites of our dear readers. I’m sure you’ve experienced this as you’re dressing up your ride – after getting an awesome paintjob, kick-ass sound system, and cool interiors, you find out you didn’t pay enough attention on your wheels. Listen up: wheels and tires can make or break your ride!
Because of this, you find yourself face to face with a hugely daunting task – choosing the right wheels to suit the look that you want for your car. You have to make sure to match it with your ride so that the whole thing goes well together. Like in many things in life, not all alloy wheels are the same. There’s always an ideal one depending on the set up of your car, whether it’s a street, classic, racing or passenger car.
The key element is that style should always match performance. Nothing looks worse than a dressed up ride with matching shoes but nothing underneath the hood. Even if it’s a vintage jalopy you’d like to drive around with the missus on the weekends, there’s a matching alloy wheel that will enhance your car’s overall look.
The saying “the devil is in the details” has never been more appropriate than in the case of selecting your wheels. So, the best recourse is to do tons of research: check out the latest car magazines, take a look at some videos of car and wheel match-ups, and lastly and more importantly, scope out what the cars in your neighborhood are sporting. This helps you decide whether you want to have a unique look or follow the trend. But it don’t matter. In the end, it’s what you are happy with that counts.
So add some style and street cred to your hot ride by selecting the most ideal alloy wheels.
