The term JDM is a widely used expression in this day and age, however, only a handful of people know the true origins of the terminology. At AutoCraze we will summarise it for you whilst also exploring the notion of JDM rims and why they are so highly sought after.
The term Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) is utilised by companies in Japan to refer to the local market for domestic goods. Within the car culture, this term refers to Japanese parts and cars designed to comply with Japanese vehicle and equipment regulations to suit Japanese market preferences. From the 1970s, Japanese car companies have produced many popular performance cars however these cars were never exported beyond Asia. It wasn’t until the late 1980s and early 90s where Japanese performance cars became abundant in Australia. With the growing presence of JDM cars in the Australian marketplace, the demand for JDM rims has been increasing. Thus many Australians are now searching for JDM rims as they are very versatile and are constructed by reputable companies in Japan with the sole intentions of being used on streetcars as well as race cars and Motorsport.
Why Buy JDM Rims?
There are numerous benefits that can be attained from purchasing JDM rims for your vehicle. At AutoCraze we believe that Japanese branded rims are superior to most due to the strict regulations imposed on car manufacturers. There are many reputable JDM wheel brands that actually make OEM parts and accessories for domestically available cars such as Enkei and also BBS to name a few. As such, there are rigorous standards that these JDM wheel brands must adhere to to ensure the longevity of the wheels and ultimately the performance and overall safety of the vehicle. Furthermore, JDM rims are only constructed with the highest quality materials such as aluminum and are put through rigorous testing procedures and stages to ensure that they won’t deform or deteriorate when being exposed to the harsh conditions on the road.

Due to the growing trends of JDM rims and vehicles in Australia, Japanese car owners are searching far and wide for the best set of JDM rims for their vehicle. Japanese domestic cars usually have stiffer suspensions and improved throttle response because the roads wind over hilly terrain in contrast to the American model cars, which are designed for smoother roads and longer journeys. That’s why JDM rims are perfect for the Australian market as they are designed to handle the rough and winding terrain of the outback. JDM rims are engineered to enhance the appearance and performance of any car.
