Upgrading your alloy wheels

Alloy wheels come standard on many cars, but not on all makes and models, especially ones that are slightly cheaper. If you have an older car it may have plastic wheel trims instead or even just steel wheels. Some people do not like having alloy wheels on their car as they understand that they are costly to replace should one get damaged and are happy with wheel trims. For others, alloy wheels can really stylise the car and make it look more expensive and sporty. Wheel trims can be easily replaced so if you are concerned about losing or damaging one then wheel trims are probably the way forward. Wheel trims can often look like alloy wheels from a distance and there are many different designs out there.

The cost of alloy wheels ranges from a few hundred pounds upwards of three thousand pounds depending on what size and make you want. If you damage an alloy, it may not be able to be repaired dependant on where the damage is and what it is. If it is repairable then you could be having to find about £50- £60 pounds plus per wheel.
