When you look at your car, what words come to mind? Are you the kind of car owner who wants to make a big splash or a subtle one? How do you want to make this impression? Is a paint job enough, or a nice set of rims? Is it one or the other, or do you want to combine the paint job and the wheels to create a work of art that gets you and your car noticed at the right time and the right place? You also need to think about how much you’re willing to spend on the artistic canvas that is your vehicle. None are light decisions.
Consider Everything about the Wheels
If you’re in the market for new wheels, you’ve probably gone through the list of brands and narrowed down the field from the many to the few. Like others, you’ve probably considered Vossen rims for your car. With years of experience and high quality engineering, is it any wonder that such wheels would make it to the final four of your tournament of choices? Whatever wheels you finally settle on, a number of factors ended up coming into play. If you haven’t considered your rims from all angles, do so now.
You must think about what your car is used for, what color it is, and how long you want to own it. Are you going for a long term look, or will you want to sell or trade in your car sometime in the near future? The wrong wheels could hurt as easily as the right wheels help your car’s value.
Think About Your Vehicle Style
What do you use your car for? Is it for commuting to and from work, or going out on the town on the weekend? Do you have a sports car or a compact? These things matter, because the rims you choose should be the right fit for both your vehicle and your lifestyle. If you’re a businessman by day, but a party animal by night, you could get some wheels that splash at night but blend in during the day. If you’re a university student, making a fast and furious impression could be your goal, which means the flashier the better.
A brighter paint job and a more subtle set of Vossen rims might clash, which is why you should also think about how your wheels match (or don’t match) your vehicle’s paint job. What do you want to draw more attention to, the wheels or the body? You should pay as close attention to your car’s look as you would your own. Wearing a Hawaiian print shirt with jeans is one thing, but wearing that same shirt with dress slacks and loafers is a completely different thing. The same critical eye should be turned on your car, too.
