When you’re tricking out your truck, don’t forget the wheels.
You’ve decided to go ahead and trick your truck. So now you’re sitting at the computer looking at all the various lift kits, leveling kits, tires and enhancements you can use to make your truck one of a kind. While you’re doing that, don’t forget to look at wheels – the part that your tires are attached to.
“A set of off-road wheels are an integral make-up of any serious touring machine; a good set from a respected manufacturer – wrapped with good quality rubber – ensures peace of mind when pointing your bullbar toward a crumbly climb,” whichcar.com says. “Critical things to keep in mind when prowling the various catalogues for a new set of rims is size, construction and whether they’re load-rated to suit the GVM of your current 4×4.”
Take size, for example. Whichcar.com points out that, while various sizes are available – generally from 15 to 20 inches – the larger the diameter, the harder they are to handle when the roadway turns from pavement to “dust and eventually mud.”
The diameter will also affect the size and fit of the tire, especially the amount of sidewall on the tire. A bigger sidewall gives more protection to the rim from the bumps, scrapes and bruises from rocky terrain.
You should also look out for something called “wheel poke.” Wheel poke, whichcar.com explains, is how far the wheel sticks out. The farther out it sticks, the more likely you are to hit things that are outside the truck’s body. On the other hand, the wider the wheel, the larger the footprint on dirt and sand and the more stability you have.
Your best bet for finding the best wheel for you, your truck and where you plan to drive (the beach or a rocky trail into the mountains?) is to find a trusted expert. You can find such an expert at Trick Trucks of Millsboro.
