Whether you’re driving a hatchback or an SUV there are specific wheels that will suit your vehicle. Here are a few tips to help you to find the right set of wheels for your vehicle.

  • Size. Most hatchbacks and sedans may take the same size wheels so there would be a larger selection available for this group of vehicles. However, these days there are hatchbacks that are made much smaller than those in previous years. The reasons are mainly to keep the cost of manufacturing low, to offer customers a more affordable driving vehicle; as well as for fuel economy. These smaller hatchbacks require a smaller set of wheels. An SUV on the other hand is a larger vehicle and the specification for the wheels is much different to that of a hatchback or sedan. The wheels would have to be larger in diameter and wider for improved grip on the road.
  • Design. Select a design that is suitable to the style of your car. The style of the design is an important consideration. Do you want mags with five spokes, eight spokes or multiple spokes? Is the shape of the spokes important to you? There are many designs that you can choose from, so make sure that you consult with the wheel supplier for the best option for your car.
  • Colour. This would depend on the colour of your car and how much you want to stand out. Usually most mags come in a matte silver colour because they are made of an alloy material. But you do also find other colours such black or gold mags. Another popular colour is the chrome mag which gives your car an interesting look because it has a rather mirror-like high gloss silver appearance.

At the end of the day the type of mag wheels that you choose will depend on your personal preference. As long as you have considered the size and fit of the wheels as recommended by the wheel supplier , the rest is up to you. You can decide which set of mags you like the most and you think will look great on your car. After all, you are the one that is driving it and that will have to look at it and get into it every day. Make yourself happy first.
