Wheels and Tyres Perth
The wheels and tyres on a vehicle are the one single link to the road surface. Think about that for a moment. You can have the most powerful engine in Perth, the most sophisticated transmission, the most elaborate super-trick suspension, and every other automotive widget known to mankind, but it's all for nothing if the wheels and tyres are below standard. In a way, it's really a bit strange but that's just how the operation of a vehicle is.
Luckily, after examining the facts this way, you can be assured that wheels and tyres technology in Perth keeps getting better. In fact, it's actually quite amazing that while crummy wheels and tyres can hurt a great car, great wheels and tyres can do wonders for a less-than-fantastic car in Perth, or anywhere.
If you've bought a new vehicle and decide to replace the tyres, there are several ways to go in Perth. Of course the easy way is get the exact size and make that came on the vehicle when it was new. Beyond that, you might consider upgrading to better quality tyres that improve maneuverability on wet or dry Perth roads, yet still have the same size as the original tyres.
The next step would be to switch to different wheels and the reasons for doing that are numerous. Some people merely want a different look for their wheels while using the same original tires. While this might be fine if you want to make an appearance change right away, we think it's better to wait until you need new tires anyway, then upgrade to a larger diameter wheel and tire all at once.
That's the basics on tires, now we'll move on to wheels. Tires wear out, but wheels don't, so why would you want to change wheels in Perth? For many there's no reason to, especially when you look at some of the very attractive wheels that come as original equipment on many of today's cars in Perth. One of the two main reasons most people consider a wheel change is simply for looks. A better-looking wheel makes a world of difference on many cars and trucks.
Besides appearance, the 'plus' concept is a key reason car owners change their wheels. 'Plus' sizing your wheels and tyres is the best way to improve both the performance and appearance of your vehicle in Perth. By using a tire with a shorter sidewall, you gain quickness in steering response and better lateral stability. The visual appeal is obvious; most wheels look better than the sidewall of the tire, so the more wheel and less sidewall there is, the better it looks.
Besides size, other factors should be considered before shelling out big bucks for wheels and tyres in Perth. The benefits of a good-quality alloy wheel are numerous. And, of course, many cars come with them as factory original equipment. Either way, you end up with reduced unsprung weight compared to steel wheels. This is a factor that affects a vehicle's road holding ability. Unsprung weight is the portion of a vehicle that's not supported by the suspension (i.e. wheels, tires and brakes) and is most susceptible to road shock and cornering forces. By reducing unsprung weight, alloy wheels provide more precise steering input and improved cornering characteristics. The added strength of a quality alloy wheel can also reduce tire deflection in cornering. The lighter rotational weight of alloy wheels can even provide a slight increase in acceleration and fuel economy.
