Tips for Tricking Out Your Truck Wheels

June 09, 2021

Whether you want to customize your ride a little or a lot, tricking your truck's wheels is one of the easiest ways to elevate both of your ride's looks and functionality. If you want to make a visual impact, this a mod you want to take advantage of. Carolina Custom has the options you are looking for. All you have to do is decide how you want to use your truck (e.g., off-roading or street). These tips will help you take your ride to the next level by upgrading your wheels.

Downsize or Upsize Your Wheels

The size of the wheels is the most obvious way to customize your ride. Changing your wheels' diameter will change the look and change how your truck drives. A larger wheel size has a wider surface area. This means that it can accommodate larger and wider tires that are able to grip and handle better in wet and off-roading conditions. This is advisable if you plan on taking your truck off-roading through less than ideal conditions. On the other hand, smaller wheels allow for better fuel efficiency. The reason is that a smaller wheel means there is less resistance, so your engine does not have to work as hard, thereby increasing the average mpg of your truck. You may find this an appealing option if you have a long commute, enjoy road trips, and plan to stick to the asphalt.

Increase Aesthetics with Rims

Your options for rims are endless. Pick your choice of material. Alloy rims tend to be lighter and boost the handling and performance of your vehicle. Meanwhile, steel rims are heavier but more cost-effective. Choose from different finishes, including:

  • Matte
  • Chrome
  • Gloss

You can stick with traditional colors such as black or add a little bit of personality with an eye-catching color (e.g., red). The right set of rims can make all the difference in the world

Any Style You Want

Color and finish isn't your only choice. Gone are the days of having to settle for traditional-style patterned rims. You have the option of sleek and stylish rims, aggressive and rugged rims, and anything in between. Carolina Custom has the largest selection of rim patterns for you to choose from. If you aren't sure which style will look best, use our ultimate customizer to try out different looks on your truck until you find the perfect one!

Make Sure It's a Fit

If you choose to upsize your wheels, make sure they will fit under the truck as it stands. No biggie, if they won't. This is an easy problem to solve. You simply need to install a lift kit and potentially new suspension, depending on how high your truck must be raised to accommodate your new wheels. This is a relatively inexpensive solution that will give you the look, feel, and functionality you are going for! Chances are you may have already been contemplating a lift kit in the first place!
