Custom Wheels – What’s Your Preference?

So you just bought a beautiful new car or truck and you can’t decide if you should customize it with some new after market wheels / tires or just leave it the way it is. Well, there is no right answer. At Suburban Wheel Cover we love all types of wheels whether they are the stock OEM wheels or super cool custom wheels. It is totally up to the vehicle owner what appeals to them the most. Our recommendation to those who live in harsh climates would be to do both. Have a nice set of custom wheels for the good weather months and then put the stock wheels back on in the winter months. This way you can have the best of both worlds! One very common complaint we hear about with custom wheel installations is that the vehicle has vibration problems or the car does not handle properly. At Suburban Wheel Cover we have the very best equipment from Hunter Engineering and with our Road Force balance option we achieve the very best results possible. We almost always recommend a wheel size combined with a high quality tire that will look and ride great without sacrificing the ride too much. However we can do up to 30″ wheels for those who insist on the biggest and baddest rims that money can buy.
