There’s a whole lot more to buying rims for your vehicle than just the way they look. In some ways, the rims you match to your tires can have a major impact on your vehicle’s performance and safety. Check out our Wheel Buying Guide below then call the team in Vernon and we’ll walk you through selecting the perfect set of wheels for your vehicle.
Alloy Wheels are light wheels with improved performance characteristics. These light wheels increase cornering and steering precision, and decrease road feedback for better braking response.
Steel Wheels are heavier wheels that provide vehicles with a lower centre of gravity. Steel wheels are perfect for harsh road conditions in the snow or off-road over rugged terrain, but lack other performance capabilities because of the added weight.
Chrome Wheels add an aesthetically pleasing finish applied to both alloy and steel wheels. Chrome wheels are sought by drivers concerned with cosmetic appearance. While chrome wheels are known for their metallic mirrored shine, durability, and strength, they require regular attention and cleaning to maintain their visual appeal.
Cast Wheels are aluminum wheels, manufactured through a process of pouring molten aluminum into a mold. The shape of the wheel is formed through a process of gravity or pressure casting.
Machined Wheels combine casting, heating, spinning, and precise pressurization to fill a mold with molten aluminum and shape the wheel.
Forged Wheels are produced by taking a solid piece of aluminum and molding the wheel through high heat and extreme pressure. The result is a light, dense, and strong wheel.
