One of the most dramatic changes you can make to your ride is switching out your factory wheels for some aftermarket rims. But choosing the right ones can be tough if you don’t know what you’re looking for.
Look at quality over design.
You’ll want to pay attention to the quality of the rims, as well as the design. This may be less applicable if your rims will be on your daily driver. However, regardless of your car’s use purpose, wheels play a critical function in how your car handles on the road.
If you’re going to be putting your rims in South Florida through heat cycles or a high-stress environment, you’ll want to know the quality of the wheels you’re buying. That will help you make a decision about which rims are right for you.
Know the setup on your car.
The key to choosing the perfect rims is knowing what tire and wheel setup is on your car. You’ll want to keep in mind the hub bore size of your car. Aftermarket rims are going to have a larger hub bore than what your factory vehicle has. This is done on purpose in order to ensure the wheels will fit your car. If the aftermarket rims have a smaller hub bore than what your vehicle allows, it may not fit. Hub bore fit minimizes vibration and overall drive quality of aftermarket wheels on your car.
Pay attention to diameter.
Keep in mind how the overall wheel will look on your car. When modifying your ride, you don’t want a wide wheel just because you can buy one. Diameter plays a role. You’ll likely want to size up by looking at the actual diameter and width of your stock wheels and tires.
You can go up in your wheel size from 17” to 18” if you downsize the size of your tires. The goal is to maintain the overall diameter of the stock wheel setup you had.
