WheelFire—a leading custom tire and wheel retailer in the United States—has published an article examining wheel and tire trends for 2021, basing its findings on consumer behaviors in 2020. The analysis determined that wheels and tires consumers seek out in 2021 will be largely dependent on the types of vehicles they are buying.

One of the key findings from WheelFire’s 2021 trends is that consumers are searching for value when purchasing vehicles. Although style is not completely out as a deciding factor, buyers are hoping to get a greater value for their purchases heading into the new year. That means they are searching for cars, trucks, and SUVs that deliver optimal performance while remaining fuel efficient. As gas prices prepare to potentially fluctuate in the coming months, the latter is especially important.

For wheels and tires, this shift toward greater value means off-road tires are gaining in popularity. These types of tires enable drivers to cruise on any terrain — and with more and more people turning to outdoor activities because of the pandemic, that’s a useful feature to have. Tires such as the Fuel Off-Road brand offer this value, and they do not detract from a car’s look.

In addition to seeking value, it also appears consumers are thinking about size heading into 2021. Over the past year, vehicle owners have sought to upsize, and WheelFire suggests that trend will continue. Because people are upsizing their vehicles, it makes sense that they are also opting for larger tires.

The move to larger wheels is not just for trucks either. It seems even smaller vehicles are being upgraded with bigger and better tires. WheelFire highlights this in the article through the example of an Impala fitted with 22″ Asanti Black Label Dynasty Wheels.

Finally, WheelFire reports that a shift toward electric vehicles may be on the horizon. According to the Edison Institute, 7% of cars and trucks will be electric by 2030. With more advanced cars on the road, there will likely be a demand for higher-quality tires as well. Sleek and slim wheels like the Rohana RF2 will likely be popular for electric cars.

With electric cars on the rise, more hybrid vehicles will also be hitting the road. Owners of hybrid cars may also seek upgraded tires, and because these models are not as common, fitment will be needed more and more for hybrid and electric cars.
