You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for JDM Wheels. At Purnell Tyres, we stock an impressive range of JDM Wheels suitable for various domestic and imported vehicles. But what are JDM Wheels? And why are they so popular both within Japan and internationally?
JDM Vehicles – What are They?
JDM is an acronym for “Japanese Domestic Market”. As the name states, it refers to vehicles manufactured for the Japanese domestic market that showcase certain features designed for Japanese driving, government inspections, laws and regulations.
Technically speaking, if a vehicle is manufactured in Japan and sold internationally, it’s not a JDM because it will not include features designed for the local Japanese market. That said, some car enthusiasts import JDM vehicles into Australia and other countries to own and drive a truly unique vehicle.
JDM Wheels – What Makes Them Unique?
JDM Wheels are much more popular and commonplace in countries outside Japan than the vehicles. This vast range of Japanese wheels are known for their unique and often eye-catching designs and cater to the specific tastes and preferences of not only Japanese car enthusiasts.
Typically, JDM Wheels are manufactured in 15” to 18” to suit the Japanese domestic market, so if you’re looking for large rims at 19” or more, JDM will not be a suitable option for your requirements.
