noob question on wheelcovers to rims upgrade

758 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  RicerYan
i have an lx civic and have been thinking about gettin rims, but i really see no point to it since the wheelcovers look decent. is there any reason y i should upgrade to rims besides for looks? will rims improve performance for everyday use? i always assumed that the wheelcovers + tire is lighter since its not metal.

i always forget to add the steel wheels into the equation, but i figured it was still lighter cuz of it's size. guess its startin 2 make sense that rims r better cuz of the lighter metals used. i might just leave them alone for a year or 2 until i have enough money. i have another project in mind. thanks for the input everyone.
