Wheel and tyre packages – tyres on aluminium alloy or steel wheels

All tyre experts recommend winter tyres in winter and summer tyres in summer. Car owners who have both sets fitted on individual steel or alloy wheels don't have to worry about having to worry about the tyre changes in spring and autumn - tyres only have to be plugged in. On the other hand, if they only have one set of wheels, both the winter and the summer tyres will need to be installed first.

The right tyre/rim combination for your car

There are countless possible combinations of tyres and wheels (rims), and finding the right one for your car can be a chore. You can find the wheel and tyre sizes for your car in the car papers. With this data, our rim configurator can lead you to the perfect combination of tyres and rims. Depending on what you are looking for, you can pick:

  • Alloy rims with winter tyres

  • Alloy rims with summer tyres

  • Alloy rims with all-season tyres

  • Steel rims with winter tyres

  • Steel rims with summer tyres

  • Steel rims with all-season tyres

Alloy or steel, which is better?

The opinions on this subject are mixed. While alloy rims certainly look better, steel rims offer durability and stability. The age-old argument, that alloy wheels are lighter therefore improving fuel economy, is countered by the fact that modern alloy wheel designs involve much more material (making them often heavier than regular steel rims in the same size). Aluminium, a soft metal, is more predisposed to scratches and dents (for example, from bumping against the pavement kerb). Powder coated alloy rims are especially quick to need a visit to a car service for repairs. Steel wheels, on the other hand, can also be susceptible to corrosion and surface rust. Car wheels affected by rust need to be treated immediately and coated with anticorrosive.

Order affordable wheel and tyre packages

The bottom line is always the price. Whether ordering their winter tyres on aluminium alloy or steel rims, saving money is the first priority of online shoppers.
