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. Wheels affected by rust need to be treated immediately and coated with anticorrosive.
