Nothing suits a car quite as well as a factory-fitted rim.
Whether it’s a rugged Ford Ranger Raptor wheel or a sleek Alfa Romeo alloy, they enhance the look of any vehicle.
Apart from looking good, they also perform a key duty – keeping your car on the road in combination with the right tyres.
The blade-like rims on the Ferrari SF90 Stradale also double as fans to cool down the brakes at high speeds, as an additional example of functionality.
Certain companies also see a wheel design as iconic, and as a way to mark a specific generation of a car.
Case in point: Every generation of the VW Golf GTI gets its own exclusive wheel design.
The better-looking standard rims are usually on the range-topping models, however, meaning that in most cases you need to pay top-dollar to roll around on the finest factory alloys.
In South Africa we are fortunate enough to have a wide variety of beautiful cars with beautiful wheels, in nearly every segment.
From hot hatches to hypercars, the only thing standing in your way is personal taste and your bank account.
