Alloy vs. Steel Wheels in Winter Tire & Wheel Packages

(Lea en español)

When creating a Winter Tire & Wheel Package you can choose either an aftermarket alloy wheel or a steel wheel for your vehicle.

Use the descriptions below to help determine the best choice for you.

Alloy Wheels

  • Enhance the look of your vehicle
  • Are manufactured to precise standards to meet exact fitment and performance needs
  • Weigh less than steel wheels and have superior strength
  • May be the preferred option for your vehicle based on fitment requirements
  • Will allow for better brake clearance (depending on wheel style and brake components installed)
  • Require proper maintenance as finish damage may result in the harshest winter climates where salt and sand are routinely used

Steel Wheels

  • Meet the basic needs of drivers who want the convenience of a winter tire package without the additional cost of an alloy wheel
  • Typically available in black or silver finish depending on the application
  • Basic styling can often be updated with wheel covers
  • Cost less than alloy wheels due to ease of manufacturing and lower material costs
