When I was growing up you hardly ever saw custom wheels on trucks, they were seen mainly on sports cars but now you seem them on just about any kind of vehicle and on trucks in particular. Gone are the days when trucks were used as just utility vehicles for hauling or work related jobs. Now trucks are bought by people who have no intention of ever using them to haul or tow anything. In my area you are just as likely to look over and see a girl or woman driving a truck as you are a guy. The light truck market consisting of pickups, SUVs, and vans accounts for over a quarter of all new vehicles sold so there is also a high demand for custom wheels for these vehicles.
Perhaps more than any other vehicles, trucks have a wide array of accessories that can be added to change their appearance. Think about it, you have lift kits for raising, lowering kits, ground effects, tonneau covers, racks, tool boxes, light kits, and of course custom wheels. In many cases the people don't even make these changes for a utilitarian reason, they just like the look. I have a friend who has his truck lifted over 8 inches, has large oversized tires, tow bar, Fog Lights, etc, and he has never been off the road with it! He just likes the look of the big truck and many people are just like him.
Custom wheels bring more than just added appearance; they can also give you a better ride and increased performance. Choosing the wrong wheels can conversely affect your results in a negative way and can even cause damage to your vehicle. The great thing about custom truck wheels is that due to their popularity you can find a wide assortment of wheels to fit any truck no matter if it is a Ford or a Nissan, Four Wheel Drive, or Two Wheel Drive. The aftermarket custom truck wheel market has a product for any vehicle whether foreign or domestic.
I like to shop for custom wheels online, just like with almost everything else you can really get some super deals buy shopping the many vendors available on the internet. In addition to the huge variety of choices you can also view the wheels and in some cases they even have a virtual 360 degree view available. You can find truck wheels in any size you want and save really big if you buy tires and wheels together plus some dealers even offer free shipping. Remember, not only are you enhancing the appearance of your truck you are also increasing the performance and handling with the right tires and wheels so make sure you get the best fit for your truck.
