Wheels

Steel
Steel WheelsSteel wheel rims are the cheapest option and one of the most durable options. However, steel rims are heavier than their alloy counterparts, weighing three times the amount of aluminum, the primary metal in alloy wheels, according to Smart Cycles. The weight has caused these rims to be replaced by alloy wheels on modern cars.
Alloy
Alloy WheelsThe alloy wheel is a combination of various metal types, with the primary metal being aluminum. Aluminum used in alloy rims allows them to be lightweight and thus best for performance. On some vehicles for show, gold and silver plating can be applied for an opulent finish.
Chrome
Chrome WheelsChrome wheels are not solid chrome but an applied finish over your choice of wheel. The chrome wheel rim is used for show cars and sports cars for a fancy finish. Chrome adds nothing to increase performance, but gives the wheel a shinier finish. Chrome wheels can scratch easily, so use chrome wheels in sunny and dry weather, and have a back-up set of rims for snow and rain
Colors and Spinners
SpinnersTo make rims more eye catching, a colored finish can be added or the rims can be made to spin. Colors such as white, black and red are commonly used to match the wheel to the car's color. Spinning wheels will spin while the car is moving and for a short period once the vehicle has stopped.

Caring for your rims

Use liquid soap to clean your car rims. You can use a t-shirt or other soft material to rinse your wheel. Liquid soap is used because it is non-abrasive meaning that it will not scratch your wheel when cleaning. The soap will remove any grease or dirt on your car rims. You can optionally use a touchless car wash which will keep your car rims from being touched and potentially scratched. Another important issue is salt. If you live in an area with salt on the roads then it is especially important to clean your car rims regularly because salt can deteriorate chrome. Regular maintenance of your car rims is wise to prevent thick buildup of grease and grime.

Tires

All-Season tires
These types of tires are designated “the best all-around tire” because they strike a balance between performance, traction under wet conditions, mileage and noise reduction. All-Season tires come standard with most new vehicles. 
Winter-Use tires
Winter-use tires are designed for low temperature conditions. They are made of soft rubber that heats up while driving in the cold for improved grip on snow and ice. These types of tires for cars and trucks also feature more sipes than traditional tires, which create more biting edges for increased traction on snow and ice.
All-Terrain tires
All-terrain tires are intended for use on light trucks and SUVs. For added puncture resistance, all-terrain tires have sidewalls that are more rigid than all-season radials. These types of tires also feature large tread block patterns to pull mud from the contact patch and improve grip on loose sand or dirt in off-road conditions. 
Performance tires
Among the many different types of tires available, performance tires are the ones to choose when you want to maximize road contact. Designed for high speed and aggressive driving, they feature a softer rubber compound that increases traction and improves cornering, as well as lower profiles to reduce sidewall flex under stress.
Off-Toad tires (Mud Terrain)
Off-Road tires are designed specifically for non-highway use. They feature chunky tread blocks and a higher void ration than even all-terrain tires in order to maximize traction in loose soil, muddy or snowy conditions.

Plus Sizing and Inching up

Plus sizing your wheels means making your tire thinner and at the same time making the rim diameter higher proportionally. This makes the tires surface more flat, giving you more traction and response. Your car will look much nicer and the odometer and speedometer usually don't need adjustment. Possible disadvantages to plus sizing may be less damping reflection while driving on bumpy surfaces and overall heavier wheel and tire package which can reduce gas mileage slightly. It's up to you to decide which benefits outweigh the disadvantages. Plus sizing normally will also inch up your ride at the same time.

Inching up your tire and wheel package will increase the section width by 10 millimeters and decrease the aspect ratio by 10 points for every inch that you increase it. The outcome of inching up will make your treads contact the ground in a larger area and improve dry handling, steering response, cornering ability, and boost the cosmetic factor.
