You must be some sort of wheel or tire connoisseur! We’ve got a huge range of items with more than 350 wheel and tire brands under our wings. BUT - chances are if we don’t show it on our site, we can get it. Just contact us and we’ll do our best to get a set of wheels and/or tires on your ride.

How do I measure my bolt pattern?

The first number of a bolt pattern is the total number of lugs and the second number is the distance between the farthest studs.

For 5 lug bolt patterns, measure from the center of one stud to the outside edge of the farthest stud.

For 4, 6, & 8 lug bolt patterns, measure from the center of one stud to the center of the opposite stud.

Example: A 6x5.5 bolt pattern has 6 lugs with a measurement of 5.5 inches from center of one stud to the center of the opposite stud. If the second number is larger, like 6x139.7, the measurement is in millimeters instead of inches.

Metric vs. Standard bolt patterns

The majority of bolt patterns are measured in millimeters but some are also labeled by standard measurement in inches.

For example, a 6x139.7 bolt pattern is equivalent to a 6x5.5 bolt pattern. The only difference is that one is measured in 139.7 millimeters and the other is 5.5 inches.

Here are some other bolt patterns commonly labeled in inches:
5x4.5 equals 5x114.3
5x5 equals 5x127
5x5.5 equals 5x139.7

What are dual-drilled wheels?

A dual-drilled wheel is a wheel that is drilled with two sets of bolt patterns. By doing so, this allows the wheel to fit a much wider range of vehicles. An example would be a 6x5.5 and 6x135 wheel, which would have twelve holes. A dual drilled wheel is equally as safe/strong as single drill wheels and passes the same rigorous durability testing by the manufacturer.

What is a wheel offset?

Wheel offset measures the distance between the center of the wheel and the mounting surface. This results in a positive, negative, or zero offset.Offset is the relation between the mounting surface of the wheel and the centerline of the wheel.

When the mounting surface of the wheel is in front of the centerline, that means the wheel has a positive offset.

When the mounting surface of the wheel is behind the centerline, that means the wheel has a negative offset.

When the mounting surface of the wheel is directly on the centerline, that means the wheel has +0mm offset.

Wheels with positive offset tend to stay sunken into the wheel wells. Wheels with Negative offset tend to stick out past the vehicle's fenders. If the offset is lower than the vehicle’s stock offset range, the wheel will stick further out compared to stock.

How do I measure the offset?

Wheel offset measures the distance between the center of the wheel and the mounting surface. This results in a positive, negative, or zero offset. If the offset is lower than the vehicle’s stock offset range, the wheel will stick further out compared to stock.

If the offset of the wheel is lower than the stock offset range, the wheels will stick out compared to stock fitment. The lower the offset, the further the wheels will stick out. The offset is often printed on the backside of a wheel spoke next to the letters ET.

What is backspacing?

Backspacing measures the distance between the inner edge of the wheel and the mounting face of the wheel. Decreased backspacing will result in more inside wheel clearance to reduce risk of the wheel rubbing the brakes or suspension.

What is a staggered fitment?

Staggered fitment is when the rear wheels are wider than the front wheels. This is done for both style and performance but only works with rear wheel drive vehicles. The larger rear tires help deliver better cornering & braking while the wider rear wheels provide improved traction.

What is the difference between One Piece Wheels and Two Piece Wheels?

One Piece Wheels: The majority of all wheels are one piece wheels. This means that the wheel is cast or forged as one piece. These wheels are stiffer than two piece wheels but are much more affordable.

Two Piece Wheels: Two piece wheels are formed from two separate pieces: the center portion and the outer portion. These are bolted together to create a stronger wheel. Two piece wheels usually have more ornate designs with more aggressive size options.

What is the difference between directional and non-directional wheels?

This is a question we get a lot. The answer is quite simple. If the wheel is a forged wheel or it is listed as directional, it’ll be true directional. This means that two wheels will have a design flowing in one direction and the other pair flows the opposite direction. The result is all four wheel designs flowing the same direction once installed on your vehicle.

One-piece cast wheels will typically have identical wheel face designs which means that, once they’re installed, the design will flow one direction on the passenger side and the opposite on the driver side. But heck, most people don’t notice this stuff and you can save a bunch of money doing a one-piece cast.

Are You Selling Second Run Or Blemished Wheels?

No. Unless specifically listed as a blemished wheel, all wheels are brand new, first run, and manufacturer warrantied.

Can I Trade My Old Wheels For A Credit Toward New Wheels?

No, unfortunately we aren’t able to accept trades.

Does the number of spokes on a wheel determine the wheel’s strength?

No! The strength and integrity of a wheel is determined more by the material and the method of manufacturing than by the number of spokes in the wheel design.

How does wheel width affect overall performance?

The added weight of wider wheels will decrease gas mileage as well as braking performance and acceleration. However, handling is increased as well as increased skid pad performance from the tires.

Do you sell tires too?

Yes. We have access to discounted pricing on a number of tire brands. We also offer free mounting and balancing ($80 value) so that your wheel & tire package will be ready to go when it arrives. You can let us know about the tires you want on the price request form. Additionally, we are also able to sell tires without wheels. You can shop for tires here.

Will you stretch tires?

The short answer: Yes!

Our customers are determined to push their vehicles to the limit while showing off their own unique style. Each customized vehicle has its own personality and we want to help our customers achieve any look they’re after to complete their dream vehicle.

However, there are certain risks that come with stretched tires. Stretched tires give a distinct, minimal sidewall look that can help showcase your wheels and dial in perfect fitment. In minor stretch applications, there are minimal to no inherent risks. But, in extreme tire stretch applications, this can result in debeading or tearing of the tires sidewall. The more the tire is stretched, the more likely you may run into one of these issues. Stretching a tire onto a wider wheel may void the manufacturer's warranty depending on the brand and size of the tire.

What is the difference between an AT, MT, and RT tire?

When it comes to buying new tires, it’s usually between one of three options: all terrain, mud terrain, and the new rugged terrain.

All Terrain, AT, is a great option for vehicles that handle a decent amount of off-roading but still get regular use on the street.

Mud Terrain, MT, tires sport a more aggressive tread to help move mud and gain traction but they come with more weight and increased road noise.

Rugged Terrain, RT, is typically a blend of both AT and MT features to offer something slightly more aggressive than an all terrain but not quite as loud as a mud terrain.

What is the difference between an all-season and summer tire?

All-season tires are built with specific compounds, along with their engineered treads, to continue to deliver performance even in the winter. These compounds stay flexible in the cold while still providing solid response on hot summer pavement.

Despite their name, most summer tires are closer to a three season tire option than strictly summer. They generally have a more shallow tread giving them exceptional performance at the cost of a shorter lifespan. These tires are built with compounds made to provide sticky grip on summer pavement but these compounds tend to lose most or all flexibility in the cold.

How can I tell if my tires are directional and properly mounted?

Directional tires will include a rotation arrow on the tire’s sidewall. The arrow indicates which direction the tire should turn.
