Bigger is Better Trend

Have you looked at the size of your typical performance wheel these days? The ability to manufacture low profile tires has radically increased the wheel size on many vehicles. At one time, 16" wheels were only available by special order. Now, 17", 18" and larger wheels are common. Aftermarket wheels are often 20", 22" - even 24". As wheels increase in size, their durability is reduced. It's not uncommon for a careless driver with low-profile tires and wheels to bend all four wheels in one incident. These larger, softer, aluminum wheels are also prone to curb rash, scrapes and gouges. This translates into additional business for the wheel repair and recon technician.
