There's a need out there for good-looking wheels and rims that can do dual-duty in an off-road capacity. Truck and SUV enthusiasts don't want to be left out of the fashion and style game when it comes to their own rides. To address this, KMC Wheel Company came up with a good solution in a purpose-built lineup they're offering. In this case, XD Series wheels and rims deliver for trail or street in every instance.

Size depends on need. All of the various wheels and rims offered in the XD Series line are built with a purpose in mind. It can be strictly for a set of 15 inch SUV or truck wheels that never leave the street. It can also be for some rollers that are going to be bolted on and then thrown out on the muddy trail, in the case of some of the 20 to 24 inchers available in the lineup. Even the most basic trucks or SUVs, including "dualie" types, will benefit.

Six of one, half-a-dozen of the other. Truthfully, the differences between truck wheels and truck rims are exceedingly small and mostly revolving around some technical needs or requirements. Urban truck customizers, known as "tuners," never refer to any of their rollers as "wheels," though. To them, they'll always be a "set of rims." But the words "wheel" and "rim" can be used to describe rolling stock with little or no dispute.

The old reliable. Steel as the material used to make a wheel or rim was "the old reliable" for years and years. It could take a lot of punishment, especially when it was made for a truck or SUV, and it tended not to rust out over time. That steel wheels could also be heavy on some occasions and in some uses really didn't matter to the average truck owner.

Pride of place for aluminum. Over the last few decades, aluminum has more-and-more become the alloy of choice when it comes to making a purpose-built truck wheel or rim. This is mainly due to the ability to make an aluminum wheel in a variety of styles, interior shapes and offsets, and lots of colors. And aluminum, because it's an alloy, is completely immune to oxidizing rust. The fact that it's lighter is an added benefit, though (again) it's not as important to an SUV or truck owner.

Get a grip. A truck or SUV wheel is a purpose-built thing. And they all come with a set of lugs, the number of which is dependent upon the size and purpose of the wheel. XD Series models can range from 15 inch/5 lugs all the way up to 24 inch/8 lugs. Which model you choose depends on the SUV or truck you own and what you intend to do with it.

Get dirty and still show off. The XD Series lineup from the KMC Wheel Company has wheels and rims that can make even an off-road beast look good while it's out getting muddy. Lifted trucks benefit from this, too, as do the street-warrior urban SUVs so popular in big cities and small towns today. Dualie owners are also getting in on the game, for that matter.

Put it all together. Style and fashion are a factor in almost every SUV or truck owner's mind today. XD Series wheels and custom rims deliver for trail or street in almost every circumstance, and they can help a truck or SUV look good while doing most anything.
