Modifying your vehicle can be a lot of fun because you can play around with ideas that suit your style. You can upgrade your vehicle as you wish and include new functions that will make your driving experience more pleasurable. One of the first things that most people will change about their vehicle is the wheels, namely the tyres and the mags. This small change can instantly uplift your vehicle and give it a completely new look. With there being so many different types of vehicles out there and different types of wheels, how do you know which ones will suit your car best?
Firstly, you need to consider what type of vehicle you have. Is it a hatchback, a sedan, a pick up truck, a van or a roadster? All these are marvellous vehicles but not all wheels will look great on all of them. You need to consider the type of car you have and its overall style. It would be crazy to put huge wheels on a roadster because not only will it look odd but it will also not be conducive to the car’s performance.
Next thing to look at is the size of the wheels that you would like to fit to your vehicle. Check how many mounting holes or bolts you require to fit the wheels to the car. If your car requires four bolts, then buying a wheel with five bolts will not work. Check the pitch circle diameter for your wheel. This is the invisible circle that passes through the bolts or mounting holes. If the spacing between the mounting holes is further apart on the wheel than on your car, it simply won’t fit.
Then you can look at the various styles of mags, and there are plenty. Take a look at the type of car you have then work from there on determining which style of mag will work best. If you have a hatchback that is used simply for travelling short distances to work and back like a Tata Indica, then a more practical style mag may look more suitable. For example, choose an alloy wheel with eight to ten spokes. This will give the hatchback a new look whilst not overwhelming it. However, if you have a sports style hatchback such as a Volkswagen Golf then you can opt for a more daring and interesting style of mag. A five or six spoke star mag will look great while playing it safe. Whereas you could be bold and choose a multi spoke mag that have a curved design or long spoke design. This will create a more dramatic effect and add to the sporty nature of the car.
Once you have taken all of these factors into consideration you can choose the right type, size and style of wheels for your car. The effect that you should be going for is that of a stylish upgraded and enhanced function vehicle instead of just an impulsive upgrade because you saw a set wheels that you liked. There should be a balance between what kind of mag wheels you like and the style and look of your vehicle. When you reach this balance of style meets function then you’ll be the envy of everyone around you.
