About Smart Car Wheels

Smart was founded in 1993 when Swatch Swiss watchmaker partnered up with Daimler-Benz to form Micro Compact Car AG to create stylish micro-sized vehicles that offered intelligently effortless ease of parking and operation in crowded European metro areas. Reaching the United States in 2007, Smart Cars arrived with parent company Mercedes-Benz’s engineering expertise to feature the highest levels of rear-engine packaging efficiency and small-vehicle crashworthiness possible. Smart Cars offer the most choices for wild customization right from the factory, and it’s rare that you see two that look exactly the same. Many Smart Car owners go so far as to say they consider their vehicles as not just a car, but a friend. It’s not hard to understand why.

When you’re ready to add a higher level of personal touch to your Smart Car with custom wheels, CARiD offers a huge selection of wheels to enhance your Smart any way you want to. No matter what designs, sizes, colors, and shapes you prefer in a custom wheel, if it’s out there on the street then you’ll find it in here. Everything we sell can be customized to your specification, so when it goes on your Smart Car it looks right. Specialists are available 7 days a week to help you with any questions you have.

  • TPMS Sensors
    What Is The History Of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems?
    Tire pressure monitoring systems ("TPMS") are integrated assemblies that include sensors in the tire stems, and they exist for the purpose of warning a driver when the air pressure in any of their tires has dropped to an unsafe level. To do this, pressure detectors are fitted on the part of the stem that sits inside the tire. Those pressure detectors each have their own battery and transmitter which relay information to the car's main computer. A normal-looking stem protrudes outside the tire for the purposes of adding air, and looks indistinguishable from traditional valve stems that don't have pressure sensors.

    Are Bigger Wheels Better Wheels?
    Replacing a standard size steel wheel with the same size of cast light alloy wheel improves performance and road-holding considerably, without any reduction in comfort. Further improvement in road-holding comes with increased wheel size, combined with a corresponding reduction in the height of the tire walls, a procedure called “Plus-Sizing”.

    Staggered wheel fitment is a term for the rear wheels being bigger and/or wider than the front wheels. This only works on rear wheel drive cars, where the bigger rear wheels can put more power onto the pavement. Changes in the relationship of wheel dimensions between front and rear on a RWD car changes the balance of the vehicle.
