FAQ about Wheel Simulators

Posted by Rick Dynek on 31st Jan 2014


What are wheel simulators?

A wheel simulator is a decorative,
usually stainless steel disk that will cover a car’s wheel. Wheel simulators
are intended to be used solely for decoration and will “simulate” the
appearance of more expensive, branded wheels. They are cheaper but will most of
the time achieve the desired effect a car owner wants. There is a growing
number of wheel simulator manufacturers in the world and as with all products,
they all vary in quality and price.

Wheel simulators are easy to install
and do not require any technical knowledge. They come in different installation
styles, namely the snap-on style, over-the-lug mounting style, lug-nut style,
and bolt-on styles. Most of these installations can be done by the car owner
and will usually take less than an hour with the right instructions.

The benefits of using wheel simulators

Installing a wheel simulator into your
vehicle will undoubtedly give it a fresh and attractive new look. A shiny,
chrome-plated wheel simulator is most popular since it replicates the vibe that
an expensive, new, and branded wheel gives. Wheel simulators as well as other
car modifiers enable a car owner to incorporate his or her own taste and
personality when it comes to automobiles.

Also, wheel simulators protect the original wheels from being damaged by outside
elements. It effectively reduces the accumulation of rust and protects the
wheel from moisture which causes rust.

Ultimately, wheel simulators and other car accessories are optional. The purchase of these
items is usually made by car enthusiasts, but it doesn’t mean that any regular
car owner cannot accessorize.
