Facts about Factory Original Alloy Rims

May 11th, 2010

So we all know OEM Alloy Wheels are great & everything; but do you really know why? This blog should pinpoint a couple of facts:

  • They are lighter so the car moves faster.
  • Alloy absorbs heat better, which makes your brakes more reliable.
  • They come in different sizes & finishes; especially the 2009 BMW 323i wheels
  • They are more reliable than steel wheels.

And of course with advantages, there are disadvantages:

  • They tend to run more expensive than steel.
  • Alloy wheels usually come standard when you buy your new vehicle.
  • A little harder to maintain than your typical steel wheels.

But if you can handle it, get them (:
