Racing Wheels

Racing wheels are not just for aesthetics. They serve very practical purposes for the race cars that use them. They are designed to withstand the rigors of racing and provide the optimal amount of performance.

Racing wheels must be lightweight, fast, and strong enough to handle the most intense maneuvers. Most manufacturers are continually trying to improve their designs and put their products through vigorous testing. If you plan to race your vehicle, be sure that the wheels you use are up to the challenge.

Racing wheels can be made from steel or an alloy composite. For the most intense racing, steel wheels are generally preferred due to their strength. However, most wheels used in SCCA and other amateur racing classes use alloys.
