Looking to learn all you need to know about wheels? You've come to the right auto parts store. Get the facts, right here!
First off, something you already know: wheels and tires are different. The former turn the latter. How do they do it? They rotate on axles. This builds mechanical leverage and multiplies force, creating the motive power necessary.
Secondly, what wheels are made of: usually, one of several highly durable metals, like steel or aluminum alloy, or an ultra-resilient polymer like carbon fiber. Third, how wheel sizes are specified. The answer: in diameters; they can measure anywhere from as few as 15 inches to as many as 20 inches, and sometimes even more. Fourth, the wheel styles available these days: they vary widely. A wheel can be defined by anything from its number of spokes to whether it's single-, twin-, or multi-spoke, not to mention by the climate or weather type it's designed for. Finally, the color options for sale, online and in-store: they're often proprietary, too many to name. However, automakers do design and build their wheels to complement their models specifically.
The takeaway: when it comes time to buy wheels and rims, it's important to do your research. Most importantly, though, you should be sure to order right type and size wheels for what you drive. Putting on the wrong size, putting the right ones on wrong, even driving with a bent or broken rim -- they can all increase your chances of an accident. Why? Because proper alignment, dependable handling, acceleration, and braking, and even speedometer calibration -- they're all directly related to fitment.
