Although these sets vary in size and style, they all perform the same function. That is enabling the car, truck, van, or SUV to move from one place to another.

The first part of the wheel is the tire. Crafted from strips of rubber, these provide traction and grip of different degrees. This mainly depends on the type of tire you have. These can include all-season (the most popular), performance, off-roading, and more.

Next is the rim. Serving as the skeleton of the wheel, this is what the tire is wrapped around. Base trim levels typically come with steel models, and higher versions are usually crafted out of aluminum or alloy. Different finishes are available including plastic protective covers, shiny chrome, and so much more.

Finally, the hub is the centre cap of the wheel that attaches the rim to the axle, rotors, calipers, and brake pads. In the middle section, you will find five bolts along with lug nuts that keep everything together.
