Whether you're going off road on an overland adventure or just want to get down your driveway, it's important to have a great wheel that won't be compromised by terrain. The "best" wheels differ depending on application, but it's also important to take into account a wheel's visual appeal, especially if the vehicle will experience both on and off-road driving.
ALUMINUM OR STEEL OFF-ROAD RIMS?
When it comes to off-road wheels, the debate over steel or aluminum is alive and well. Let's take a look at both sides of the coin.
Cast aluminum wheels are lighter, stronger, and more resistant to corrosion than their steel counterparts.
Steel wheels are more common but they are heavier, which can negatively impact mileage.
For a mix of off-road trails and on-road driving, aluminum wheels provide the best performance along with a wide range of designs.
