Buying Wheels For Your Car


Buying Wheels For Your Car

A fresh set of rims can give your ride a sleek, upgraded look. Before you get rid of those generic wheels and slap on some custom rollers, however, take the time to figure out what size will work best for your vehicle. Once you know what size you need, you can turn your attention to the fun stuff, like deciding on a material, color, design, and finish.

Overall Diameter: The wheel and tire combination should always clear the braking components, suspension parts, and the body of the vehicle. This is important whether you want to increase the diameter of your wheels for a street-worthy look, or decrease the wheel diameter for more tire sidewall and better off-road performance.

There are many sizes to consider when purchasing new wheels. The image below is an example of how plus and minus sizing works. Plus sizing boosts the diameter of your wheels while decreasing the profile of the tire sidewall to match the overall tire diameter suggested by the manufacturer. Minus sizing works in the opposite way to allow for a taller sidewall.

TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) compatibility is also important. Equipped in most new vehicles, the TPMS in your vehicle should be reset after installing new wheels. At Les Schwab, we take care of that for you.

Keep in mind, that your options will be specific to the make and model of what you drive.

Alloy wheels are one of the most expensive modifications you can make to a car, with an average per-wheel price of around 65-250. There are offers to be had, though, so shop around and use price comparison sites to find the best deals.

Want to find out which alloy wheels fit on your car There are a couple of ways to search for alloys, so you can quickly find compatible makes and models that will fit your car. Below, we take a look at the different options when buying a set of alloy wheels.

A sweet set of new wheels is a major purchase, but once you get the old stock wheels (or worse, someone else's idea of "nice wheels") off of your car, it's worth every last cent, isn't it A custom set of wheels is that bit of personality that can perk up a pickup truck, give a car a bit of muscle, or if you're legitimate about your weekend activities, can make the difference between performing and just spinning your wheels. But do you know how to actually go about picking the correct set of wheels for your new ride It's not as easy as looking at your Camaro, picking the style of wheel you like, and choosing a 15x8 dimension. Many things need to be taken into account if you want to get that perfect look you have in your head. And on late-model vehicles that have sensors and other equipment in the way, there's quite a bit more to fitting out the wheel well than just picking the biggest wheel and tire package that doesn't bash into the fender lip.

We wanted to do something a little bit different on this 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. Nothing against the factory-style 24-inch wheels that were put on by a previous owner, but they didn't visually pop and when driving around, any road rougher than glass transmitted every last little bump, pebble and seam through the cabin and directly to the driver's spine, taking away from the luxury-truck theme of the Denali. So the decision was made to change out the Denali's steamrollers and rubber band tires for a set of 20x9 Rev Wheels OE Replica 586 series wheels (586MB-2908327) and 275/55R20 Toyo Open Country A/T III tires. It might seem like a step down, but the increase in tire sidewall over the 24-inch combination means that there isn't a physical loss of rolling stock height. Seems easy enough to have made that decision, right Follow along and we'll show you what all went into the selection process for these wheels.

First, measure the diameter and width of your existing wheels. You can choose to go with that stock size or something larger. Just keep in mind that larger wheels will mean you need lower profile tires in order for the combination to clear your vehicle.

Lastly, you need to know the bolt pattern for the wheels. This means noting not just how many lug holes there are, but what the diameter is between opposite holes. A bolt pattern of 4100 means that the wheel takes four lug nuts and that the holes are 100mm apart.

Installing the right tires on your vehicle is essential to the overall performance and safety of your vehicle. Your tire choice should reflect the conditions in which you drive and your preferences for vehicle response and handling. To make the most informed decision, though, you must understand how to read tire size when it's time to buy tires.

Thankfully, determining the correct tire size for your vehicle is relatively simple. All the information you need is immediately available either in your owner's manual or somewhere on the vehicle itself. Already know how to read tire size numbers Skip the explanation and find the right Bridgestone tire for your vehicle online or by visiting a Bridgestone tire dealer near you.

While actual, physical measurements like width and diameter are factors in finding the right tire size, there are additional details to consider. Knowing how to read car tire sizes also means understanding terms like load index and speed rating that affect your vehicle's overall capabilities.

Similarly, "T" stands for "temporary" and is for your spare tire. If you see "ST," that means "special trailer." A special trailer tire is never installed on the drive or steer wheels. It's only intended for use on trailer axles.

After the slash mark, the next number you see is for the tire's aspect ratio, which essentially tells you how tall your tire's profile is: P225/70R16 91S. Aspect ratios are delivered in percentages. Tire makers calculate the aspect ratio by dividing a tire's sidewall height by its width. If a tire has an aspect ratio of 70, it means the tire's height is 70% of its width.

Take note: if you decide to change your rims' size, you will also need to get new tires that are compatible with the change in size. Tires designed to fit a 16-inch wheel diameter will not stretch to fit on new 18-inch rims.

Additionally, you may not find this number present on all tires. This is because the load index is not required by law to be printed on tires. If there is no load index measurement on your tires, check the owner's manual or contact your local Bridgestone tire dealer for more information. 59ce067264
