High Quality Aftermarket Wheels from the Leading Manufacturers Read more.
Almost all automobile enthusiasts will agree that choosing the right tire and wheels combination can help significantly increase a car's performance and appearance. Here at Tires & Wheels Direct, we carry some of the widest selections of aftermarket wheels and rims from the leading manufacturers, including Enkei, KMC, TIS, and many others.
Although stock or factory wheels and tires provide more than adequate performance for day-to-day driving on conventional roads, upgrading to aftermarket rims or ordering custom-designed wheels can give your car, truck, or SUV a much-needed performance or aesthetic boost. And for older cars and trucks, a wheel upgrade is a quick and easy way to give your old ride a fresh new look.
Why You Should Upgrade Your Wheels
Factory tires and wheels are generally designed for regular driving, and combining the appropriate amount of grip for most road surfaces. Most cars come with 14- or 15-inch rims, but can readily accept 16- or 18-inchers without any problem.
When you buy larger rims, you'll also need to replace your tires to suit your new wheels. In order to compensate for the larger wheel diameter, performance tires have shorter sidewalls and are wider compared to stock tires. This provides a larger "contact patch" between your car and the road, which gives it better grip, particularly for street driving. Tires with shorter sidewalls are also stiffer compared to conventional tires, which leads to more responsive handling, particularly when driving around corners.
Another advantage to plus-sizing wheels is that it allows for the installation of larger brake discs. Better brakes, of course, mean better stopping power and control when on the road. In order to maximize the benefits of upgrading your car's rims, however, you need to make sure that you're buying the right size for your car's make and model, as well as the type of terrain you'll be driving.
Most aftermarket wheels and rims are manufactured using high quality aluminum and magnesium alloys, which are much lighter compared to regular steel rims. This allows for a much smaller unsprung weight, which can further increase your car's performance and handling.
