Custom wheel and rim packages

Choice Wheels provides all forms of replacement wheels, rims and tires. There are a number of scenarios in which you may need to buy new wheels. You could just need a new set of tires - this happens often. It's caused by wear over time. If you do a moderate to heavy amount of driving, you may need to replace your tires twice in a year. For most people, replacing tires can be done just once a year. You don't have to have snow tires. If you're in a spot that has a ton of snow, or heavy snow, then you may need snow tires. There are some places too, like Montreal that require snow tires. Many people just stick with all season tires.

That being said, Choice Wheels is more about replacing wheels completely - putting a new set of rims, and tires that go onto those rims. The entire package is called a wheel and rim package. You can look at acquiring either a factory or OEM wheel package. If you want the same rims and tires that your vehicle came with, then you want factory or OEM wheels. However, if you want to change the look and feel of your vehicle, slapping some aftermarket rims onto it will certainly give it a sleeker and different look! More heads will turn when you go down the street.

Wheel enthusiasts are a special breed of people. If you've owned a few different sets of wheels in the past, or you're just buying your first set of custom wheels, we've got what you need. Check out some of our articles too, like what size of rim you need to buy, or tire installation. This way, you can pretty much learn whatever you need to on your own. Easy, right?

Alloy Rims versus Steel Rims

There are certain advantages to using an alloy wheel over using a steel wheel. Alloy wheels are made out of aluminum and nickel alloy. This is lighter than steel counterparts. Because of the lighter construction, alloy wheels provide better performance. You'll also find that these wheels will handle obstalces in the road better, too. Steel wheels are less expensive, however, due to mass production and also that steel is less expensive. Steel wheels will rust after 2-3 years.

The disadvantage to chrome finished wheels or machine lips, is that they can't be used in the winter. If you use the rims in the winter and don't heed these warnings, the warranty on your rims will actually not be valid. This is based from the manufacturer, these are the rules to having the warranty. It's not the same for every manufacturer, so check the policy before purchasing your alloy rims. Chrome wheels may not hold up in the winter, the finish wears off and then it does not look good. As the manufacturing of alloy wheels improves, the cost of aluminum wheels decreases.

OEM Factory Wheels vs Aftermarket Wheels

Custom wheels allow your vehicle to have a different appearance, than the one it was built with. Simple as that. When you are upgrading your wheels, you have two choices. You can choose either factory wheels, or aftermarket wheels. Depending upon the vehicle that you have today, it may have great factory wheels. You may not have to change them out for aftermarket. It is possible in some cases to also upgrade the size of the wheels, while still mantaining factory wheels that are built by the manufacturer. In many cases however, the choice may be to peruse aftermarket wheels. Depending upon the manufacturer, there may be a limited selection of styles available from said manufacturer. When this happens, and you want a unique style or different idea or design that is not offered by the vehicle manufacturer, you may start taking a look at aftermarket rims for your vehicle.

Pricing, as well as wheel size can differ from manufacturer to manufacturer. If the size you want is not available as an OEM wheel, or the price may not be within your budget, then it's time to look at aftermarket also. Looking at aftermarket wheels can bring some fresh ideas and concepts to mind, if nothing else. If you are an artist yourself, sometimes all an artist needs is a fresh perspective to bring new ideas, and new design concepts to the table.

SUV Wheels

At Choice Wheels, we want to ensure that we have the most variety of wheels that is possible online. We have wheels for sedans, trucks, and you guessed it - SUVs. SUV stands for sport utility vehicle.

The SUV is becoming a popular mode of transport. The concept of an SUV is not quite a truck, but not quite a car. You've got more room to haul things around, a bigger trunk, and the opening to the trunk is usually bigger too.

This is an important distinction to make because often times when you want to fit a larger item into your vehicle, you may have enough space in the back seat or the trunk, but you also need enough clearance from the trunk door in order to make it happen.

Sometimes, you can even see people in the parking lot, taking apart their trunk on their sedan (if they're handy enough) simply because they know the item will fit, but there isn't enough clearance frmo the trunk door. SUVs are great for carrying more and having the space to do it.

Also, in many cases an SUV can carry more passengers as well. There may be an optional additional seat, which can be removed in case of more space being required for people.
