How to Find Winter Wheels (Rims) for Your Vehicle

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 by Gary Stanley

Whether you're looking for steel or alloy wheels, finding an option for winter driving at Tire Rack is easy! The winter section of our site is setup for quick and simple searching of all wheels that'll fit your vehicle and are appropriate for winter use. 

Follow these simple steps to find the right winter wheel for your vehicle:

  1. Search for winter / snow tires in the winter section of our website
  2. Enter your vehicle's make, model and year
  3. When building your Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Package, select the size of wheel you'd like to purchase
  4. This results in you seeing tire options for your vehicle and you can click on "Skip to wheels" to view all wheels available for your application

That's it! From there you can see if steel wheels are available for your car and also view different alloy styles. Up-to-date pricing and availability are also shown on the results page. If you need help choosing between steel and alloy wheels, take a look at "Alloy vs. Steel Wheels in Winter Tire & Wheel Packages."

You can even view minus size fitments. What are the benefits of downsizing and how can it help you when driving this winter? Benefits can include increased ride quality, better winter traction and a lower cost. 

For more information on this topic, read "Downsizing to Smaller Diameter Wheels."

Looking for 17" steel rims for a 2010 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L to put snow tires on.

I'm sorry, we have never seen a 17" steel wheel for this vehicle. Inexpensive alloys for winter use in 17" for this car currently start around $100 per wheel.
