Since its inception, the automotive aftermarket has been a very fluid industry: constantly
evolving and changing shape. However, due to unprecedented economic hardships and radical changes in drivers’ palates, version 2.0 of the automotive aftermarket is charted entirely new territory. The custom rim industry is no exception.
The first major shift in the wheel industry has affected how customers receive their products. The previous model was a tiered distribution program where manufacturers would sell to wholesalers and wholesalers would sell to regional distributors then distributors would sell to the retail customer. Due to the most trying financial times we’ve ever seen, many companies have abandoned this approach for the only one that could keep them in business: sell direct to consumers. While this has resulted in great savings for customers, it has changed the landscape of the rim industry and many established companies have either closed up shop or traded their outdated sales practices for more economical ones.
The second change is product preference: more specifically, the size of wheel that customers are demanding. In the early 90s up till recently, we saw an incredible surge in demand for larger rims e.g. 20″ and larger. That’s all changed. Due to high gas prices and reduced consumer spending power, many customers are deciding to go with smaller wheels that cost less and provide greater fuel efficiency. This swing in necessity has caused wheel manufacturers to produce smaller, more cost-effective wheels to meet increased demand.
Old Style Chrome Rims
The last difference we’ve noticed is rising consumer demand for vehicle personalization. At an increasing rate, drivers want rims that will reflect their own unique sense of style and identity. For decades, chrome rims were the pinnacle of customization – shiny, unique and unlike anything you could get on your local dealership floor. At present, it’s not uncommon for a wheel to have 3 or 4 different finishes or be color-matched to the car paint. This new taste for customization has been echoed by the automotive aftermarket as a whole too, with shops like West Coast customs and 310 motoring owing their success to it.
Just a few of the customization options available in 2011 for Rims:
