5 of the Best Ways to Trick Out Your Car

From shiny new rims, tinted windows, and everything else in between, people are willing to do whatever they can to make their vehicle as unique and personal to them as possible.

Cars and trucks are not usually personalized from factory to garage. In other words, there aren't as many unique options to add that are specific to your liking. For the most part, any options you can add from the factory are either unnoticeable, too expensive, or poor in design. This is one of the main reasons why many car owners are turning towards aftermarket ways to trick out their vehicles. As a matter of fact, there are even car competitions for people who have the best or most extravagant aftermarket additions on their cars. Known as "tricking out" your car, people can get quite overwhelmed with the many options there are to add. From shiny new rims, tinted windows, and everything else in between, people are willing to do whatever they can to make their vehicle as unique and personal to them as possible. So, with that in mind, here are five of the best ways to trick out your car.

#5: Adding Headlight Covers

Adding headlight covers is one of the easiest ways to trick out your car. In addition to protecting your car's headlights, they also give it a touch that makes it look brand new. While this addition doesn't necessarily stand out on its own, it definitely does when combined with other additions such as car wraps or tires. Not to mention, they are also quite cheap to get.

#4: Making A Personalized License Plate

Making personalized license plates is probably the most personal touch you can give your vehicle. This small but significant touch is so unique that it makes your car truly one-of-a-kind in that regard. As long as the plate meets the regulations of whatever state you are in, you can put everything on it from your initials, your birth month, or even the name of your favorite movie.

#3: Adding Aftermarket Seat

Aftermarket seats are arguably the most popular additions for people's cars. There has been everything from fixed seats, luxury seats, and even legit racing seats added to factory cars. It all comes down to personal preference. Although, be aware of the laws that come with doing that. Some cars can't get any aftermarket additions at all due to safety.

#2: Getting A Car wrap

Up there with car seats, car wraps are among the most popular ways to trick out your car. Although they are on the more pricey side of additions, they are still known for making the biggest difference when compared to a factory car. In fact, it can completely change the style and color of a car all together. Basically, it turns a standard car into a brand new car.

#1: Adding Aftermarket Tires

The thing about tires is that they are going to be changed anyway. Knowing this, some people like to go straight to Aftermarket tires to trick out their cars. Especially when you add some shiny rims to those tires, it can make people look twice at your car when you drive it down the road.   


It does not need to be hard to personalize your car. Small changes like adding headlight covers, making a personalized license plate, adding aftermarket seats, getting a car wrap, and adding aftermarket tires can be inexpensive, and can completely revolutionize your car’s look. For how expensive cars can be, it is worth it to make it your own. Do not be afraid to keep your brand new car looking brand new for many years to come. Even for inexpensive cars, these simple upgrades can improve the look and perceived value of your car. You should not have to be a millionaire to drive a nice looking car!
