What Do Your Rims Say About You?

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Defensive Driving Tips

You have probably noticed some cars on the street with some pretty extravagant rims on their car. Sometimes it seems that the rims cost more than the car itself. But is there really a point to the rims or are they merely an item to declare social status?

It depends on what you consider the rim.

Some people use the term wheel and rim interchangeably. Simply put, it is the item that connects the tires to your car. It keeps your tires round and basically allows your car to move. Without wheels your car would just be an impressive sculpture. However, if you want to get technical, the rim is actually only the outer portion of the wheel; the part the tire hooks onto. Let’s just talk about the technical term rim; the part of the wheel you can see. There are many different sizes, styles, and colors of rims.

The rims you choose for your car can say a lot about your personality.

For example, if your car has larger rims, you are a perfectionist. Larger rims allow your car to be able to handle curves better, and you want nothing but the best for your car. You do not settle and you work hard to get what you want.

When you opt for lightweight rims you are saying that you care about the environment and you are also frugal. Your lightweight rims will save you money on gas, and you are proud of it. You probably plant a garden in your spare time and enjoy family barbecues.

If you have silver or chrome rims on your car you live a refined life. You have a nice house and a high-paying job. You enjoy wine-tasting on the weekend and you are never seen wearing tennis shoes in public.

If black rims are your fancy, you are the sporty type. You enjoy weekend basketball games and working out. You dress casual and don’t even own a suit. You probably get a lot of speeding tickets, so you can be seen taking a DefensiveDriving.com course on the weekends to reduce your penalties.

If your rims are multi-colored or a color of the rainbow, you are very creative. You are probably a musician, artist, or teacher. You love expressing your emotions and are somewhat of a romantic.

Finally, if you still have the stock rims on your vehicle then you are down-to-earth. You don’t give a darn what anyone thinks about you. You are also very busy and always have something on your schedule.
