Alloy Wheels

Alloy wheels are popular aftermarket additions to many vehicles. They are often designed to have a more “sporty” look than those that come with the vehicle. Furthermore, there are many design options that simply aren’t available through the vehicle’s manufacturer.

Alloy wheels tend to be much lighter in weight than the average steel wheel. The lightweight nature of these wheels makes them better for hard maneuvering and braking. The right alloys can make a sedan handle more like a sports car.

There is a downside to alloy wheels. They tend to be more prone to damage than are steel wheels. And in most cases, they are also much more expensive.
