First arriving in 2012, the Ford Transit Custom is the medium-sized van in the van range brought to you by Ford. There was an update for this van in 2017 and this brought with it a new look, and the revisions to this model has kept it fresh in the van sector. With the Ford Transit Custom alloy wheels, it's no wonder this model is popular with buyers. It's actually the third best-selling model after the Focus and the Fiesta. In 2016, a newer, more efficient EcoBlue Diesel model was brought out and added to the range. The full facelift for the Ford Transit Custom van came out in 2017 for the new 2018 year.
The Transit Custom comes in different body styles, with an L1 and L2 wheelbase. Both of these lengths come with either a H1 or H2 roof height. It's worth knowing that the H2 model does not have the extra stowage above the driver's head in the front cab. The load area reaches forward over the cab Luton-style. All of the Transit Custom van models have double sliding doors and a split rear door, and there is an option for a tailgate, and owners can get glazing for all the doors, too. There is a three-seat van, with an additional five-seat Double Cab In-Van. This has an extra row of seats in the back with the bulkhead of the van. All versions of the Ford Transit Custom van have a front-wheel drive, and there is a choice between 2.0-litre EcoBlue Diesel from 2016, or there is the petrol-electric set up. The PHEV has a 1.0 EcoBoost three-cylinder turbo petrol engine and this is connected to a motor that drives the front wheels.

Here are some of the reasons that you should choose alloy wheels for your Ford Transit Custom.
Alloy wheels look amazing on any vehicle, but on your Ford Transit Custom van, they will look fantastic.
The racing industry took on alloy wheels first and then these were used in the private vehicle industry, too. Alloy wheels are made from alloys such as aluminium or magnesium. This allows them to be easily shaped, and you can see the pattern on the wheels of the van when you add them. There are some alloys out there that are designed to provide an optical illusion when in motion, and you can even get those that offer metallic finishes to tailor your dream car!
When you are driving, you want to ensure that your van handles well. There is a clear advantage to choosing alloy wheels, too. They're lighter than the steel option, and steering and cornering are both sharp. Steering is much easier with alloy wheels and your driving skills will feel boosted as a result. It's a simple wheel change and it makes a big difference.
Replacing Wheels Across The Industry
Right across the van industry, alloy wheels are replacing the steel options out there. Steel has always been the metal of choice for car parts, as it's cheap and can be formed into different shapes easily. With aluminium alloys, there are stronger and lighter options and it will flex less around the corners.
Reduction of Wear & Tear
With the reduced weight of the wheels of your Ford Transit Custom, there is much less wear and tear on the van. There is un-sprung weight on the vehicle that is not supported and distributed by the springs. The more weight on the van, the more wear & tear that you will have to deal with on the engine and the chassis of the vehicle. You can reduce the wear and tear on the van and make it last much longer. It will hold up for longer on the road and it means that your van is in good working order much of the time - all down to the fact that alloy wheels are lighter than steel ones.
