Modding isn’t just for street racers anymore. Anyone from soccer moms to business people could benefit from a few tweaks on their cars. Whether you’re going for style or hardcore functionality, there’s a mod out there for you.
Tires are the main modification that can improve so many aspects of your car’s performance. Tires affect how sharply your car corners, how quickly and smoothly it brakes, and how fast it accelerates. A good set will cost you anything from $150 to $300 per tire.
Tires are so essential that it’s often recommended you have two sets. If you live in a place that experiences intense temperature ranges, you should have one set for the summer and one for the winter. Each set of tires should be optimized to suit either hot or cold weather conditions.
New brakes should be optimized for the type of driving you typically do. Whether you do more off-roading, school runs, or coastal highway cruises, you need brakes to communicate with the surface you’re driving on.
It would help if you also improved the way your brake pads communicate with your foot. To this end, it’s recommended you invest in a set of stainless steel brake lines. Most cars come equipped with rubber brake lines. These are known to flex and make the pedal feel numb if you brake too hard.
Car wraps are more versatile than you might think. Chances are, no matter what you use your car for, there is a wrap for you. Car wraps also come in a variety of different textures to give you a vehicle a truly bespoke feel.
As a business owner, full car wraps are a more impactful way to advertise who you are and what you do. Unlike squeezing a few crucial details onto a sticker on your door, car wraps let you work your message and use your entire car as a canvas. Car wraps are also a brilliant way to showcase your creativity with bold, colorful graphics.
If all you want is a color that is not on your car’s incredibly limited stock color pallette, car wraps are the solution for you. So no matter what you are looking for, car wraps can be a great way to customize your car on a budget.
Wheels are ultimately what can make or break the style of your car. However, your wheels are also incredibly functional. For instance, the faster you drive, the wider your wheel should be. Having more rubber on the ground will improve traction. In a track setting, you’ll want a larger diameter on your wheels so that you can fit bigger, better brakes.
Wheels can be costly. If you need the extra traction and broader, more aggressive tires, your best bet would be a 17″ diameter wheel. While not as big and impactful as a 19th or 20″ wheel, 17″ will give you more value for the cost.
Modifying your vehicle can be more than just hardcore racing performance. Whether you’re building your brand with a full-body car wrap or improving your brakes with stainless steel brake lines, try giving your car a little aftermarket attention.
