Texan Wire Wheels: Why They're So Popular and How to Protect Your Investment

  1. 1. Why They’re Popular And How To Maintain Your Investment
  2. 2. <ul><li>Texan Wire Wheels have wire spokes that connect the wheel to the hub and help the rims maintain their circular shape. </li></ul><ul><li>Status symbols across the United States, Texan Wire Wheels are just as popular today as they were when introduced in the 1960s. </li></ul><ul><li>You can dress up their wheels by removing the manufacturer’s wheels and installing Texan Wire Wheels. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Descendents of the wheels of bicycles or motorcycles, Texan Wire Wheels have a long history since their creation to assist with early-wheeled transportation. </li></ul><ul><li>An engineer named George Cayley invented the wire wheel in the early 1800s to support heavy loads while keeping the rim and tire perfectly round. </li></ul><ul><li>He discovered metal spokes also connect the inner hub of the wheel to the rim, providing a way to carry heavy loads without worrying the wheel might collapse. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Inventor James Starley was the first to use wire wheels on bicycles. </li></ul><ul><li>Wire wheels soared in popularity when used on motorcycles. </li></ul><ul><li>Although used by earlier automobile manufacturers, the popularity of wire wheels made of magnesium really took off in the 1960s when they became a status symbol. </li></ul><ul><li>Today, you’ll usually only find wire wheels on custom-built cars or as add-on custom rims and wheels for cars. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Our popular ‘83 and ‘84 Elbow Texan Wire Wheels have 30 spokes and a steep elbow hub. </li></ul><ul><li>Texan Wire Wheels have a steeper hub than other brands and types of wire wheels. </li></ul><ul><li>The hubs in the centers of Texan Wire Wheels come out away from the vehicle at a steep angle, drawing each spoke away from the vehicle itself in order to meet in the center of the wheel’s hub. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The style of a Texan Wire Wheel is completely Texan and rich in tradition. </li></ul><ul><li>Popular with wealthy ranchers, they use Texan Wire Wheels to show off their prized extravagant automobiles by dressing up their Cadillacs. </li></ul><ul><li>Also extremely popular in urban communities across the country, younger men purchase Texan Wire Wheels as a status symbol to show others they have money and can afford luxuries like these. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>It’s easy. With your vehicle in ‘park’ and your engine off, place a jack under the correct point on your car’s frame to lift one tire off the ground. (It’s always best to only lift one tire at a time when installing your Texan Wire Wheels.) </li></ul><ul><li>Use the lug wrench to remove the lug nuts from your wheel and remove the wheel (not the tire). </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Put your first new Texan Wire Wheel on your car using a centering ring if supplied. </li></ul><ul><li>Bolt your lugs down on your wheel hub. </li></ul><ul><li>Turn on your car (not the engine) and shift it into ‘neutral.’ </li></ul><ul><li>You should be able to turn the tire freely and it shouldn’t brush up against the brake caliper. </li></ul><ul><li>Turn off your car, tighten the lug nuts and lower the wheel to the ground. </li></ul><ul><li>Repeat these steps for each of the four wheels, making sure your lug nuts are all tight and your wheels are secure. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>It’s simple to care for your Texan Wire Wheels to retain that sparkling shine as long as you check and clean them on a regular basis. If you allow dirt and grime to stay on your wheels too long, the sun will bake the dirt into the surface of the wheels, making it permanent. </li></ul><ul><li>Never take a vehicle with Texan Wire Wheels to a car wash. The equipment and brushes used by many car washes can damage the wheels by scratching and scraping them. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t use harsh chemicals or wire bristles on your wheels because they can cause permanent damage. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Hand wash your wheels, rims, and spokes using a sponge and mild, non-abrasive cleanser to rub out any grime. </li></ul><ul><li>After cleaning, spray with clean water and dry with a soft towel to eliminate water spots. You can also add a coat of wax. </li></ul><ul><li>Join the club of Texan Wire Wheel owners who understand the value and status of these unique wheels today. </li></ul>
