Corvette Wheels to Fit your Budget
The Corvette wheels on your vehicle are some of the most important components that you can buy. This is for multiple reasons; first of all, they help to dramatically alter and affect the appearance of the car. Second, they are also very important from a structural and a performance mentality as well. The size of the wheels, their support structure and many other factors go into creating the cost of the wheel, and more expensive wheels do tend to perform better. However, it’s also possible to find an excellent set of Corvette wheels on a budget as well. Read on for a good idea of how to find the best wheels according to the price of those wheels. Each of the following wheels is priced per individual wheel; a set of 4 will therefore be four times as expensive.
Although many of the Corvette wheels that are available for less than $200 are not worth your time and money, there are a few choice brands and types that are actually a fairly good deal. Still, keep in mind that these wheels are generally not the same quality as those that are a few hundred dollars more expensive, and the result is that you may need to replace them more often or that you might run into other problems with them. The Detroit ZR1 wheels provide an excellent design in all black for under $200, and the Deep Dish brand of wheels have a sporty look that combines functionality as well.
$200 to $400
The wheels in this price bracket are some of the best that you can find in terms of value. They’re not the cheapest wheels on the market, but the slight increase in cost will usually result in much better performance and, just as importantly, in a longer lasting wheel that will save you money over the long term. 17 inch Detroit Chrome wheels fall into this category as a sleek, stylish wheel that is also built to last for several years. The Hyper Silver C6 Z06 wheel by Chevrolet is 17 inches across and 8.5 inches deep, providing a larger wheel base and therefore a more attractive, in many people’s opinion, set of wheels than many smaller alternatives.
$400 to $800
The difference between a wheel that is priced between $400 and $500 and one that is priced between $700 and $800 is less noticeable than the difference between wheels priced between $100 and $200 and those priced between $300 and $400. Therefore, you should opt for the wheels that are on the cheaper side of this bracket of prices, as they’ll get you essentially the same performance as those that are more expensive too. Black Machine Lipped Deep Dish wheels at 17 inches fall into this category and are some of the most attractive wide-base wheels available for the Corvette.
