Alloy wheels, showcase quality work and craftsmanship, combined with accurate matching and fit, meeting the requirements of your specific make, model, year and vehicle is critical in this decision and supply/purchase of replacement and or enhancing rims and wheel parts. Measuring accurately, mounting and fastening, tightening or the nuts/bolts, borehole-sizing, how everything fits, holds and stays together correctly, will all affect how the vehicle handles.
The popular trend for not only AMC custom wheels, but most wheel and tire ‘upgrades’ is the so-called ‘upsizing’ or PLUS sizing, still accepted in industry as the way to go to enhance performance, power and drivability. It makes good common sense, if you think about it – more surface for rubber to meet road, better stability and traction, and as an added bonus – speed and a sportier look!
“Inching up” or incrementally going larger/wider in small measurable steps is another accepted practice for custom wheels. Also being familiar with the fact that your car is front/rear wheel drive, what the offset and bore patterns are will influence and affect your final choice of rim, wheel configurations, design, bolts/nuts/lugs, covers, hub-caps as well as other trim and accents. Some industry facts on plus sizing and inching up are provided below to help you make the choice that is right for you.
Plus Zero refers to the practice of increasing the section width, while lowering the aspect ratio and retaining the wheel diameter. This replacement configuration actually increases the contact area of the custom wheel/tire combination and lowers the tread profile resulting in improved traction and quicker response.
Plus One, on the other hand refers to sizing that actually also deals with mounting the tires with an increased section width and a lower aspect ratio on wheels of a wider diameter. A Plus One custom wheel configuration, for a car with 13-inch original equipment wheels would use 14-inch wheels for example, Increasing section width by 10 mm., while decreasing the aspect ratio by 10 points and increasing rim diameter by at least 1 inch.
Plus Two is self-explanatory, yet this increased custom wheels width in plus sizing, leads to noticeable improved cornering and maneuverability. A Plus Two fitment for a car with 13-inch original equipment wheels would use 15-inch wheels.
