Tyres provide you with an interface between the road surface and your car, and the only contact transmitting steering and braking force feedback as well as how well the vehicle will react to the road surface. Without the right tyres, your car’s ability to maximize traction with the road will be compromised, any tyres that are worn, under-inflated or not suited to the environment will put drivers themselves, their vehicle and others at risk.
Essential factors such as using the right tyre size, load and speed rating are incredibly important and are always emphasized by AutoCraze.
Perhaps the biggest mistake a consumer can make when replacing tyres is not using the correct size. On the sidewall of your tyres, you’ll find a code that tells the tire’s size and capabilities. Now here comes the question, how to read your tyre size?
Here In Australia, the only markings required on a tyre sidewall are as follows:
- Manufacturers Logo or brand name
- Tyre Size, Series, Rim Size, Load and Speed Rating/Symbol
- Serial No. – date code such as week, month, year when the tyre built
- Details of construction showing tyre size, radial, tubeless or tubed
- Country of Origin
- Mould Number
- Factory code number
Wheels / Rims
Wheels are among the most noticeable parts of a vehicle, but they also have a larger influence on how a vehicle performs than many people realize. It is for this reason that changing your vehicle’s wheels can be an easy way to achieve performance benefits and to give your vehicle a more striking appearance!
From multi-spoke wheels like BBS Super RS’s with the machined lip for the luxury buyer looking to turn heads to ultra-light race bred wheels like Grams lights and Rays for the track demons! Black Rhino and Lifted off road with their tough and burly wheels for the bush tacklers. And for the everyday driver who still wants to showcase their personality and turn heads at the same time, we got Simmons, Speedy wheels , OX, V8, Rays, and Concave concepts and numerous other wheels for whatever your heart desires!
Understanding the characteristics of various types of wheels and rims and their various features helps provide a guidance in finding wheels that are suitable to ones ride. Through over 10 years of experience in the industry we have three essential factors that always come to the attention of AutoCraze:-
-The fitment of the wheels and tyres, which directly affects the performance of the vehicle;
-The materials and finish of the wheels and rims, which determines how well they will hold up to various driving conditions;
-Proper load rating for the wheels to fit the vehicles.
What is Diameter and width?
The diameter of wheels is the measurement of how tall the wheel stands from top to bottom and the width of wheels is the measurement of how wide the wheel is from the left edge of the rim to the right edge.
What is PCD?
The “pitch circle diameter”(PCD) is an important measurement when deciding on a wheel. The bolt circle is the circle determined by the positions of the bolts and the centre of every bolt lies on the circumference of the bolt circle. The bolt pattern determines the number and position of the mounting holes to allow the wheel to be bolted to the hub.
What is offset?
Offset is a measurement of how far the mounting face of the wheel (on the brake side) is away from the centre line of the wheel. If the mounting face lines up exactly with the centre line it is called “Zero Offset”, if the mounting face is further out towards the show side of the wheel, this is called “Positive Offset”, and if it is further inside the wheel (towards the brakes) then this is called “Negative Offset” .
What is centre bore?
The centre bore of a wheel is the size of the hole in the back of the wheel that centres it over the mounting hub of the car. Some factory wheels have a centre bore that matches exactly with the hub to reduce vibration by keeping the wheel centred. Wheels with the correct centre bore to the car they will be mounted on are known as hub centric. Hub centric wheels take the stress off the lug nuts, reducing the job of the lug nuts to centre the wheel to the car. Wheels that are not hub centric are known as lug centric, as the job of centring is done by the lug nuts assuming they are properly torqued down.
What is back space?
Measure clearance of wheel from wheel well; easiest done by placing a straightedge diagonally along top back side of rim to inboard flange; then measure from contact point of inboard flange until hub mounting surface is reached.
Wheel Materials and Finish
What are alloy wheels?
Alloy wheels are light wheels that are made from a mixture of a metal and other elements and normally provide greater strength over pure metals.They are perfect for aesthetics and speed with better resistance to corrosion, as well providing better heat conduction than other wheels.
What are chrome rims?
Chrome rims are plated with a chrome mirror finish that shines in sunlight or streetlight, making them highly appealing to many people. Many car aficionados who enter their vehicles in contests and shows, elect to install chrome rims on their vehicles because it makes the cars look sharp, fast, and expensive.
Load Rating for wheels
The load rating of a wheel, as determined by the wheel manufacturer, must never be exceeded. Manufacturers identify a wheel’s maximum load by checking the back of the wheel or with the wheel manufacturer. If the load rating is not available the wheel should not be used on the vehicle. Wheel load rating requirements are determined by dividing the vehicles heaviest gross axle weight rating by two. The axle weight rating for most vehicles is shown on the identification label located on the driver’s side door jamb, gas tank door, truck lid or glove compartment.
