Wheel Customizing

Provided By:

Custom wheels and cool tires adorn more new vehicles than any of the never-ending menu of aftermarket products. Makes you wonder why the auto manufacturers don't just have their new models sitting on chocks in the showroom, so customers can customize right there. In fact, the OEMs have responded to the wheel craze by upping the stock size on their top-line light trucks and sport compacts.

The wheel/tire customizing trend for sport compacts features massive wheels and low profile, or pencil-thin, tires. The aesthetic impact is significant, yet the overall diameter of the custom wheel/tire package doesn't necessarily vary from the stock tire diameter and neither do the speedometer/odometer readings.

Musclecar restorers appreciate the look of a wheelwell filled out with larger-than-stock rubber. As long as the increased diameter stays within a couple of percentage points, however, the impact on the performance is negligible. For instance, upping the diameter from 29- to 30-inches represents only a 3 percent increase and will not cause a noticeable change in acceleration or overall handling and performance.
