Both have the same chief purpose and both attach in the same place—on the hub of the axles to the front of the brakes and rotors. Rim is jargon for the fancy wheels, however, the rim of the wheel doesn’t have to be pretty for being an effective component for attaching your tires to so that your vehicle can move on down the road.  Rims are usually made of  the latest in alloys, chrome, forged-style wheels, or other durable metal.  “Rim” is not technically correct, yet rims must be absolutely correct and perfect, manufactured with precision for attaching tires so the tires do not leak air. The most noticeable feature of your truck are its wheels.  With distinctive characteristics, they can present the impression of tough performance, ruggedness, sportiness and luxury as well as comfort to the truck’s passengers all at the same time.  Today’s...

Bull Bars – What are They Used For

Bull Bars – What are They Used For

There is a bit of language, and some crude humor. Check out Phil’s other stuff...
