Alloy rims – Stylish, modern eye-catchers
Car tyres really start shining the moment you combine them with a handsomely polished pair of aluminium alloy rims. Whether it's summer or winter, alloy wheels are a great fit during any season and on every car.
If you happen to own both summer and winter tyres, you will be able to juggle the visual style of your car each season, with each tyre change. There are many chic rim designs, from classically elegant to trendy bicolour and powder-coated models. You can order top of the line aluminium alloy products from well-known rim manufacturers, such as Dotz, Dezent, AEZ or Enzo online from mytyres.co.uk.
In the other category of rims, the steel rims from Alcar round our offer out - however, the trends are clearly favouring secondary alloy rims. If a car owner happens to have a single set of rims, they will have to refit the tyres whenever the weather changes.
Visual preview and the alloy wheels configurator
There are countless possible tyre/rim combinations. The rim sizes authorized by the manufacturer are detailed in the vehicle's papers. You can use the vehicle selector from our alloy rim configurator to actually, visually, see what a given pair of rims will look like on your car. If you want your new rims to come equipped with tyres, all you have to do is select the tyres you want in our wheel and tyre package section.
Less weight saves fuel
In most cases, rims manufactured from an alloy are significantly lighter than their steel counterparts - of course, this also depends on how much material was used to make the rim. The bottom line however is that less weight saves fuel while driving! Car manufacturers also prove this with various optimisations and constant material improvements to reduce the weight of their cars.
You can have unappealing scratches and nicks repaired
Aluminium is a soft metal, which also makes it prone to scratches and dents (for example, from hitting kerbs). Small damages like this to aluminium alloy rims become unattractive, fast. They also have to treated with an anti-corrosive to protect the material. This is why rim experts recommend having your rims repaired by a professional. A careful and cautious driving style can prevent the necessity of having your rims repaired – when driving (with or without aluminium alloy rims), full concentration and good dose of foresight are required in all situations.
