When it comes to automotive wheels, bigger isn’t always better. Larger wheels are a look that I personally adore, but the added weight can greatly reduce the efficiency of your vehicle. Light weight wheels are always an option, but can be costly and rarely are included from the original manufacturer. After spending some time with the range-sucking OEM Carbon Black Turbine 22-inch wheels, I have decided it was time for a change on my 2016 Tesla Model X. Read on to see my new shoes!
It was roughly twenty years ago that I purchased my first (used) car, a 1989 Honda CRX. Repainted at some point in a pretty shade of blue, the car was the HF trim, or High Fuel economy edition. It made a paltry 76-horsepower but was capable of 61-miles-per-gallon on the freeway. It was the perfect car for a budding college student, and was the first car I both owned and subsequently modified. Two decades have passed since then, and while my tastes have matured I’m still every bit as thirsty to personalize my automobile.
