User Guide To Wheels - General

Wheels are one of the most important parts of a vehicle. Without a set of wheels, an automobile wouldn't budge an inch. These are devices that allows a heavy object (the body of the vehicle) to be moved easily through rotating on an axle through its center. This facilitates movement and transport. A wheel together with an axle facilitates motion by rolling therefore overcoming friction.

The first wheel was arguably invented in Mesopotamia from themed 4th millennium BC. The wheeled vehicle eventually was adapted by different cultures and civilizations overtime and have transformed early transportation during those times.

The earliest wheels were made of wood. These simple wooden disks have holes in the middle for the axle. Because of the structure of wood, a horizontal slice of a tree trunk is not suitable. Instead, rounded pieces of longitudinal boards were required to create a wheel.
The invention of the wheel has allowed technology to progress. Important applications include the water wheel, the cogwheel, the spinning wheel, and the astrolabe. Modern application of wheels includes the propeller, the jet engine, gyroscopes, and the turbine.
Car parts shops and manufacturers sell wheels to customers as a replacement for used and damaged wheels. Customers can order custom made wheels for their vehicles for both aesthetic purposes and improved performance on the road.

Tires are ring-shaped coverings that fit around a wheel rim to protect it and enable better vehicle performance by providing a flexible cushion that absorbs the shock. A tire consists of two parts: the tread that provides traction; and the body that provides support to the tire. Poor wheel alignment can cause excessive wear of the tire as well as rough terrain. Unbalanced wheels can also cause uneven tire wear.

The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association is the peak body that is concerned with the manufacturing, re-manufacturing, wholesaling, distribution and retailing of all vehicle parts, accessories, tools, equipment and services.

Tips when buying custom wheels

  • One great way to save money is by buying custom wheels in a package. These packages may include new custom rims and tires. Reputable dealers will offer competitive prices on such packages.
  • Pay with credit card as this would provide you with some sort of protection if the deal between you and the dealer turns out to be not what you hoped for. Reputable dealers generally accept credit cards. However, suspicious ones would require you to wire the money. Credit cards allow you to recoup some of your money in case the wheels aren't what they're supposed to be or did not arrive at all.
  • The policies and permits of the establishment to operate should always be posted and visible. The staff should also be able to answer all your queries about the product to your satisfaction.
  • Ask your friends and colleagues for information. They might know the best place to buy a new set of wheels in the area. You can also check online since most companies post their products and services on the internet.
