Steel rims are excellent if you need to replace an OEM wheel or add an aftermarket accessory. They’re cheaper and more durable than alloy wheels. Plus, they’re easier to repair.
You can get steel rims in many different designs and colours. They’re also lighter, meaning they can help your vehicle accelerate faster. Plus, they offer better traction on snow and ice. You can even change your wheels through the use of plastic wheel covers.
Steel rims are usually made of two pieces welded together. The rim is then finished with a powder coat, a matt brushed finish or a high gloss polish. You can also add plastic hub caps to give your wheels more personality.
Steel wheels are generally cheaper than alloy wheels, but they’re still a little more expensive. Consider buying an alloy wheel instead if you’re on a tight budget. They can also be a little harder to repair.
