1. Aluminum wheels are light. Steel wheels, on the other hand, are heavy. That extra weight can make your vehicle a little less agile and slightly less quick to accelerate.
2. Aluminum wheels won’t rust. Steel wheels, on the other hand, do rust. Aluminum wheels add a clean, polished and customized look to your ride. Plus, you’ll enjoy a two-year finish warranty.
3. A second set of wheels is convenient. A seasonal rotation is faster and easier than a changeover. The only way it could get more convenient is if you stored your tires and wheels with Kal’s Tire Lodge.
Steel wheels are an economical solution due to mass production and the low cost of steel. They come in very basic designs and may require plastic hub covers to get the “aluminum wheel” look. Unfortunately, they are not made for every vehicle applications. Steel wheels require little to no maintenance.
