Wheels are required to keep their shape to properly hold the tires around them and to transfer power from the engine to the road. They are also needed to help with steering and provide a smooth ride, all while being exposed to potholes, speed bumps and other unpredictable road conditions. So, while the look of a wheel is important to most drivers, it should not be the only thing you look for and Cairns Tyre Specialists are here to direct you in the right direction.
Alloy wheels are a great option when it comes to choosing wheels for your vehicle. Alloy wheels can be fitted onto almost any vehicle, so whether you’re buying for a car, 4x4, van or even a trailer, Cairns Tyre Specialists can help you to find that look or performance you are looking for.
One of the greatest things about buying a new set of alloy wheels and tyres for your vehicle is the numerous number of variations available. As long as the correct size and specification is suitable for your vehicle, the wheel/tyre combination you choose from can be completely personalised to you. Cairns Tyre Specialists can direct you to the correct selections and supply your vehicle with a look that will turn heads.
Why Choose Alloy?
Alloy wheels weigh considerably less than steel so most alloy rims create for a lighter vehicle, hence lower fuel consumption. This however is reliant on the amount of material used in the manufacture of the Alloy wheel, however, on most occasions they make for a lighter, more fuel economic driving experience.

Most lower priced vehicles are equipped with standard steel wheels. Steel is chosen for these types of vehicles because they are less expensive and can be easily constructed into different shapes. Steel wheels will eventually fall victim to rust unless regularly maintained being treated or painted. They are normally better prepared to absorb the impact of large shocks rather than alloy wheels.
