At Street & Circuit we are proud of the wheels that we sell.
If you are a long time customer of ours you will know that two to three years ago we used to sell wheels from more manufacturers than we do today and you may also know that the wheels we sell today are generally cheaper.
So why did we change our range of products and we did we stop selling some brands and start selling other brands which are cheaper?
While I do not want to name names, the more wheels we sold the more we began to realise that the big name brands did not offer big benefits over the cheaper low cost brands.
The cheaper wheels were not any heavier than the more famous brands and in a lot of cases the cheaper brands were actually lighter than the big name brands.
Also strength. Over the years we have had a few customers come back to us who had damaged their wheels by driving over potholes in the road leading to a bent rim and needing for a new wheel. All the wheels that were damaged were from the big name brands.
No I know this is not a scientific conclusion but considering we have never had a customer come back to us saying thay had buckeld their low cost wheel it seems to us that the cheaper brands are just as strong as the more expensive brands of alloy wheel.
I suppose this is no surprise as the low cost wheels pass the same strength tests as the more expensive wheels but it is nice to see the evidence of this strength by not having οθρ customers having problems.
And more than that, we know for a fact that a lot of the low cost wheels we sell are used specifically for track days. Many of our customers use tyres just for the track and it is easier to get a set of wheels just for the track instead of having to remove and refit tyres all of the time.
It is hard to justify spending a lot of money on a set of wheels that you only use five or six times a year so a low cost set of wheels are ideal for track days.
What was pleasing for use to hear was that customers were coming back to us and saying that the wheels they had bought for the track were actually lighter than the big name brand they were think of buying and the wheels we sell we also available n colours that they could not find anywhere else.
So in short, in our experience of selling high priced wheels and low priced wheels, we have found the difference to be neglible and if anything, in many cases the low cost wheels actually look nicer and weigh less.
Of course there is always a time for the higher priced wheels which means towards the end of 2012 we are going to be choosing our wheels brands more carefully and only selling high cost wheels which actually offer performance benefits over the low cost alternative. The high cost wheels we will be selling will not cost more simply because of their name, they will have unique designs and most of all the will be lighter than the competition.
Below we have put the links to our current range of wheels, if you see something you like you can order online and we will call you back or you can simply give us a call.
Even if you are not ready to buy and you simply what some advice, we would love to hear from you!
