Choose New Shoes For Your Car
The quickest, easiest way to change or enhance a car’s style is with aftermarket wheels. Whether chosen to allow wider or bigger diameter rubber, for lighter weight, to clear upgraded brakes, for a change of style, or any mix of these reasons, wheels undeniably make or break a car.
There are certain classic combinations that never go out of fashion, like Minilites on MGs, Cragars on Detroit Muscle, and Dunlops on E-types, but sometimes bold experimentation nets great rewards—for example, how about a set of Ferrari 308 Cromodoras for your Volvo 242GT, or a set of the incredibly funky Saab 99 Turbo “Inca” wheels, designed to look like turbo vanes, on a first-generation RX-7? Results, of course, may vary. While bolt pattern and offset restrictions mean that not every wheel will work with every car, this information is pretty easy to come across with a quick Google-ing. Alternately, a good wheel can make an amazing piece of garage art, or for the single man, one seriously cool glass coffee table base—just check out the single F40 wheel we found!
