WHEELS VS STEELIES
As manufacturing and technology continue to progress in the automotive industry the case for steel wheels is quickly losing ground. The steel winter wheel or ‘steelie’ has been a staple on Canadian roads as drivers would immediately default to using these wheels over other options simply for their economical price point and low maintenance.
In 2020 this simply is not the case as steel wheels are less enticing of an offering and new vehicles now being released come with larger brakes and narrow fitments. An example of this would be vehicles like the Volkswagen Golf GTI, BMW 3 series, Hyundai Veloster N, Subaru Impreza WRX & STI and Mercedes AMG vehicles. Modern alloy wheels offer a better alternative then steel wheels because they offer fitments that are specific to your vehicle and can clear larger brakes and narrow fitments.
Steel wheels are affordable but the trade-off comes at a price. Very often drivers will find steel wheels fail, bend, rust and leak only after a few years of driving on Canadian roads. This is due to manufacturing processes as well as poor material quality or quality assurance. Our alloys wheels are made using new forging and casting technology and offer a stronger construction that far exceeds the standards of even your vehicle’s manufacturer.
In terms of styling, steel wheels come in basically one style and one color, black wheels with perforated holes. Alloy wheels on the other hand offer many varied Styles with different finishes. This presents more opportunities for drivers to find styles that match their vehicle. Alloy winter wheels offer iconic styles and different color finishes that can outlast any Canadian winter.
