Tip of the Week

If you are considering upgrading to alloy wheels, you need to consider several factors. The expense is there, sure, but the benefits in performance and looks that you will derrive from slick alloy wheels will probably make the money worthwhile. Because alloys are extremely strong while maintaining a lighter weight, you will probably see a lot of overall performance improvement in your vehicle including reduced weight, better acceleration and deceleration, improved rigidity and improved cooling of your brake system. If you do decide to upgrade to alloy wheels, you definitely need to consider an investment in brake dust shields. Alloys are suceptible to heat and corrosion and brake dust is typically the primary culprit.
