Wheel simulators are often used to cover an inexpensive and less attractive wheel to improve the overall appearance of the vehicle. Each wheel simulator has been designed to fit a specific manufacturer’s wheel. Avoid using wheel simulators meant for one car on another manufacturer’s car solely because you like the design.

Using attractive custom wheel simulators and tires can have a great impact on your vehicle’s overall appearance. Exchanging your stock tires and rims for custom wheels can make your car stand out in the crowd. While this improvement can be striking, it is one of the easiest modifications you can make. No matter what other improvements you decide to make, the overall impact can be lost unless you also install an attractive wheel package.

Wheel simulators and custom tires will also play a vital role in the safety, handling and performance of your car, truck, motorcycle or ATV. Proper installation and maintenance of rims and tires — not to mention the condition of the vehicle’s suspension and proper wheel alignment – will greatly affect your tires’ performance and useful lifespan. Regular cleaning and maintenance of your wheels rims will keep your vehicle looking great for years to come.

Stainless steel wheel simulators are more rugged than chrome wheel simulators. Stainless steel does not stain, corrode or rust as easily as ordinary steel. These wheel simulators are also the easiest to maintain.

Aluminum wheels have been eating into the market for steel wheels for many years now, though steel wheels have recently made a comeback. Likewise, stainless steel wheel simulators and accessories are also rising in popularity because they are cost effective, easy to install and give painted OEM wheels a chrome-look mirror shine.

Ford and Chevy stainless steel wheel simulators are the most popular. Chevy stainless steel wheel simulators are available for Chevy light body, workhorse motor home, medium body and commercial vehicles, including Chevy Topkick/Kodiak (C4500, C5500, C6500, C7500 and P30). A Chevy dually is custom designed to mount securely on Chevy rims. The Chevy wheel simulators are of high quality and use top-grade 304 stainless steel.

Ford stainless steel wheel simulators are available for Ford light body, medium body and commercial vehicles, including Ford Super Duty (F350, E350, F450, E450, F550, F600, F650, F700, F750 and F800). Ford custom designs its dually wheel simulators to mount securely on Ford trucks. Ford wheel simulators are also made with the highest grade of 304 stainless steel.
