The Wheel Improves Entire Look of the Car

Replacement wheels can add style and as well as improving the ride on many cars. A wider wheel, even when using the exact same size tire, adds a high performance look and can improve the overall ride of the car. There are formulas to determine the maximum wheel width in relation to the tire size, so a little homework is in your future if you are planning on an upgrade. You also need to maintain the same circumference if changing to a different size tire. There are a few tire size calculators out there. A good tire store will also help determine the correct size for the wheel you have purchased and are installing, whether the wheel is an Asanti, American Racing or Konig.
Companies such as LKQ sell direct replacement wheels for your vehicle. They have a complete line of remanufactured wheels and many new replica wheels. A remanufactured wheel is a great deal if you are looking for a direct replacement and they can be purchased at deep discounts from online retailers such as

A remanufactured wheel is an OEM wheel that has been refinished to meet factory standards. They could have been wheels that needed to be refinished and were replaced under warranty, they could have been improperly sealed and needed to be resealed or they could have been dealer take-offs that cannot be resold as new. They find their way to LKQ where they are checked, refinished and resold. When you take these out of the box they are virtually identical to a rim purchased at the dealership, except for the price, which could be HUNDREDS less than a wheel purchased at the dealer.
A new replica wheel is a brand new wheel made to look like the factory wheel. They will not have the identical markings, but unless someone is specifically looking for the casting or stamping numbers there is no noticeable difference.

Replacement Formula of the Wheel

If you find you need to replace a wheel, whether the finish is coming off or you damaged it by hitting a curb, it is a fairly simple operation.
First, you should be sure you have wheel chocks, a jack, a sturdy jack stand or something else capable of supporting the vehicle, and the correct size lug wrench. You may find it easier to use a ¾ inch drive socket handle along with the correct size socket and a short extension and you should have a torque wrench, as many vehicles have a torque recommendation for wheels.

First, chock the opposite wheel, in front of and behind the wheel. Next, remove the center cap. There are many different ways the cap can be mounted, so be careful not to pry off a center cap that screws on.
Using the lug wrench or socket, loosen the lug nuts slightly. After they are all loosened, jack the car up as per the manufacturer’s directions until the tire is about 1 inch off the floor. Position a jack stand under the frame, control arm or another strong support. Remove the lug nuts the rest of the way, remove the wheel and slowly lower the car onto the jack stand if the car will remain in that position for an extended period. If you have a wheel all ready to go on, simply put the wheel in position, hand tightens the lugnuts and then uses the wrench to gently tighten them. Lower the car to the ground and tighten the lug nuts in the recommended pattern, which is normally an opposing pattern, always trying to tighten a lug nut across the center point of the wheel from the last one tightened. Do not tighten each lug nut all at once, but slowly tighten them using the opposite pattern until the final pass is made using the torque wrench. This will help prevent any damage from warping.

Wheels on older vehicles were primarily steel and were welded together to form a product that would be mount to a car. Then manufacturers started to add style and chrome plating to their styled wheels. Each manufacturer had their own look for their carline. Next came cast aluminum, which were poured into molds and then finished on milling machines. Many modern cars have wheels that are machined out of aluminum blocks or other precious metals such as Titanium. These wheels are stronger and lighter than castings.

The biggest enemy of the chrome or polished wheel is brake dust. If you keep your wheels clean and try to avoid abrasives or caustic cleaners, they should give you years of trouble free driving.
