KEEP ON TURNING
ALLOY OR STEEL? LOAD RATINGS? SIZE MATTERS? WE REVEAL ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN BUYING A NEW SET OF OFF-ROAD WHEELS.
BACK in July we dissected off-road tyres, and this month one we’re taking a closer look at what lives inside that rubber: wheels. A set of off-road wheels are an integral make-up of any serious touring machine; a good set from a respected manufacturer – wrapped with good quality rubber – ensures peace of mind when pointing your bullbar toward a crumbly climb. But what kinds of wheels are better for offroading? What sizes should you be looking at what? What are they made of? And what are the benefits of different compositions? We chatted to a few experts to get to the bottom of all these questions.
