Wheel Buyer's Guide - Wheel Appeal

Our picks for today’s best wheels.

Apr 9, 2012 SHARE

Ah, spring is in the air… Girls start wearing less, tax refunds come in and the sun begins to shine more and more. Spring is also the perfect season for our cars. After a cold and event-less winter, show and track days become more frequent and good weather gives us another reason to drive our beloved rides on the road. With that said, you don’t want to roll out of the driveway with some bunk ass wheels. Your choice in wheels can make or break the look of your car, not to mention a rim’s construction and weight plays a part in your ride’s performance. So we’ve compiled some of today’s top JDM/JDM-styled wheels ranging from affordable rollers to lightweight race and VIP-style rims. If you see something you like, contact the manufacturer to ensure the sizes, offsets and bolt pattern work for your hooptie.
