  • Your Terrain: Where do you love to explore? Rocky trails, muddy tracks, sandy beaches? Your main stomping ground will influence both tyree type and wheel choices.
  • Driving Habits: Are you a weekend warrior or a daily off-road commuter? Frequent use might steer you towards more heavy-duty tyres and durable wheels.

Questions? We've Got Answers!

We understand that choosing wheels and tyres can be a bit overwhelming. Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions about 4x4 setup.

  • What should I consider when buying 4x4 tyres? Terrain (mud, sand, rock etc.), tread pattern, durability, load rating, and noise level are all important factors.
  • What is the difference between tyres and wheels? Tyres are the rubber that makes contact with the road; wheels are the metal components that tyres are mounted on.
  • Can I run 2 different size tyres on a 4x4? Generally no; this can damage your 4WD system. Stick with the same size for all four tyres.
  • Can I replace just one tyre on a 4WD? It's highly recommended to replace at least two tyres at a time (on the same axle) and ideally all four to maintain even tread depth and traction.
  • Can you run different size tyres on a 4-wheel drive? Not unless specifically allowed by the vehicle manufacturer. Mismatched tyres can damage your 4WD system.
  • Do tyres come with rims? Not usually. Wheel and tyre packages offer the convenience of buying them together.
  • Can you put a different tyre size on the same rim? Within limits, yes. We can help determine what's compatible with your existing rims.
  • Which alloy wheel has more advantage, 15' or 16 inches? Both have pros and cons; larger wheels offer potential for larger brakes, but smaller wheels may be better for off-roading with more sidewall flex.
  • Can I replace 17-inch wheels with 18-inch? It depends on your vehicle. You'll need to ensure the larger wheel clears the brakes and fits within the wheel well. Let our experts advise you.

Absolutely! Here are answers to the remaining questions, keeping Alpha Tyres & Wheels in mind:

Can I replace 16-inch wheels with 17-inch? Possibly! This depends on the specifics of your vehicle. You'll need to ensure the larger wheels and tyres clear your brakes, don't rub against bodywork, and that the overall tyre diameter remains within acceptable limits for your speedometer and gearing. Our team can help you figure this out.

What is the difference between wheels and rims? Technically, the rim is the outer edge of the wheel where the tyre bead sits. Colloquially, however, people often use "wheels" and "rims" interchangeably.

What weighs more, tyre or rim? It varies! Heavy-duty tyres with thick tread can easily outweigh alloy wheels. Lighter-weight racing wheels might be heavier than a standard road tyre. We can help you compare weights on specific options.

How does wheel size affect a car's fuel economy? Larger, heavier wheels often reduce fuel economy slightly due to increased rotational mass. The effect is usually less pronounced on powerful 4x4s.

Are alloy wheels good for a car?
Alloy wheels often offer weight savings and improved heat dissipation (good for brake performance). They come in a wide array of styles, but may be more prone to damage on rough terrain compared to steel wheels.

Can you put 16-inch tyres on your car instead of 17-inch tyres? This depends on whether a 16-inch wheel will clear your brakes, and if the overall tyre diameter of the 16-inch setup is appropriate for your car. We're happy to help you calculate compatibility.

What's the difference between 18 and 17-inch wheels? Mainly the diameter! 18-inch wheels offer a more aggressive look and often allow for larger brakes. However, they tend to have a thinner tyre sidewall, potentially lowering off-road comfort.

Can we change a 17-inch tyre of EcoSport with a 16-inch tyre? This depends on whether a 16-inch wheel will clear the brakes of your specific EcoSport model and whether the overall tyre diameter is compatible. Consult us for guidance!

Can I replace 14-inch wheels with 15 inches? Potentially, but check brake clearance and tyre diameter as with other swaps.

Are car wheels perfectly round? Very close, but not perfectly! Manufacturing tolerances allow for slight imperfections. High-quality wheels tend to be closer to perfectly round, which aids in a smoother ride and even tyre wear.

How to store vehicle tyres in the garage, with or without rims? Ideally, store them standing up or stacked on their sides. If mounted on rims, slightly deflating them and laying them flat is acceptable. Avoid hanging tyres, keeping them in direct sunlight, or exposing them to chemicals.

What does 5.5 J mean on wheels? The "J" refers to a type of rim flange profile, while 5.5 indicates the wheel's width in inches.

Why do wheels on cars have holes in them? Several reasons: weight savings, brake cooling, visual appeal, and access to the valve stem.

Can you drive with mismatched wheels and tyres? Not recommended! Mismatched sizes can negatively affect handling, stability, and may damage your vehicle's drivetrain.

Is a 17' wheel better or a 16-inch one? "Better" depends on your priorities. 17-inch wheels may offer sharper handling on the road, while 16-inch wheels can provide a cushier ride and more sidewall protection off-road.

Are 18-inch wheels okay for off-roading? Yes, but with consideration. They offer less sidewall flex than smaller wheels, increasing the risk of damage on rough trails. However, they can also accommodate larger brakes for improved on-road performance.

What are the best tyres for a 4WD? No single answer! All-terrain (AT) tyres offer a great balance for mixed on and off-road use. Mud-terrain (MT) tyres provide maximum grip in harsh off-road conditions, but can be noisy on the road.
