New Car Audi Q3

If you are not particularly interested in motoring – using your car simply as a means to get from A to B – you might think that alloy wheels are not something you need to concern yourself with. But, in fact, alloy wheels are so much more than a niche motorhead’s desire – fitting your vehicle with alloy wheels can actively improve your travel experience. Let’s have a look at how before you set off to explore the beauty of the Antrim coast around the Victoria town of Whitehead.

Less Weight

Firstly, your car is much lighter when alloy wheels are fitted. Alloys can be as much as 45% lighter than steel wheels, reducing the load of your car by a significant amount, especially when you take into account that wheel weight is unsprung weight. A lighter car uses less fuel and suffers from less wear and tear than a heavier counterpart – all of which can represent a saving over time that more than mounts up to the difference in cost between steel wheels and the more expensive alloys. If you’ve always wanted alloys but thought that the extra money is not worth it, now you know better and can buy Alloy Wheels in Whitehead from TSC sure in the knowledge that it is a sensible purchase in the long run!

More Comfortable

As well as saving on fuel and wear and tear, alloy wheels make your drive more comfortable, allowing the suspension to work more effectively on bumps and rough roads so that you feel cushioned all the time. A comfortable ride means that you can drive without fatigue for longer, which can mean that you save time on your travels, getting from landmark to destination without dreading seeing the next mile marker telling you just how far you still have to go!

More Responsive

Alloy wheels taking a load off the unsprung weight of the car also makes the car more responsive to your steering. This makes driving feel like a real pleasure, the car responding to your lightest touch, and it is also safer. Being able to react promptly to sudden obstructions, turn with the lightest request of the steering and generally feel in complete control of the vehicle at all times means that you will be able to avoid other, less experienced drivers and take action to prevent accidents and even reduce congestion – it can feel almost like being given an unexpected super-power!

More Aesthetically Pleasing

A final reason for choosing alloys – if you need another – is that they look fantastic. Alloys can easily be painted any colour, so they can match your car’s body colour or they can contrast with it. You can stick with a lovely subtle silvery colour, and instead opt for an amazing design on the alloys – everything from delicate swirls to cute flowers to stylish geometrics designs are readily available from your local supplier.
