If you are tired of ordinary car rims it might be time for some custom wheels or a whole new wheel package for your vehicle. Not only do chrome wheels look good, they also improve your vehicles performance. Factory issued steel auto rims are heavy, while if you purchase chrome rims with an aluminum alloy base you improve the strength of your car rims and reduce wheel weight. When you decrease wheel weight you get overall improved cancelation and braking. Less weight means better performance.
When you are shopping for new chrome rims you need to remember if you go up in size from your regular rims you also must increase tire size. This could actually add weight to your vehicle. It’s best to use a lower profile tire with a larger diameter chrome wheel. You should try and stay within three percent of the original size rims that were on your vehicle. Anything larger than that three percent might give you transmission problems that will decrease your fuel mileage.
It is always best to consult a tire specialist when changing your auto rims to custom wheels. Most dealers of custom wheels will be able to offer you a wheel package that works together for the best performance. They will also have an understanding of what will work best for your vehicle while taking fuel savings, braking and cornering into consideration. Performance aside, chrome wheels are perfect for dressing up the look of any vehicle and making your ride look great.
