Oversized wheels and tires

Twenty-inch -- or larger -- alloy wheels look great, but the cost of the low-profile tires they wear could come as a rude surprise when it's time for new rubber as the cost for a single replacement tire can top $400. If one of those large wheels also needs to be replaced, you can plan on paying considerably more. (Credit: AP (Oct. 30, 2006))

Because it's not always apparent which features might hit your wallet later, Cars.com outlined some common ones with hidden costs, and how you can minimize those costs through smart shopping.
