Why Shop for Wheels by First Selecting a Vehicle?
5 years ago
Experience indicates that searching by wheel size, offset and/or bolt pattern alone are not specific enough
criteria to ensure an exact fitment.
Attention to detail prevents vibration, wheel/tire interference and unbalanced handling. A vehicle's critical
components are measured with sophisticated electronic tools to allow our fitment engineers the ability to create
extremely accurate drawings of these parts. Similar drawings of the wheels are also created and then Computer
Aided Design (CAD) programs match the wheels to the vehicles. Using these electronic tools, numerous critical
areas are verified to ensure the fit is within our standards before a wheel can be matched to a vehicle. Wheel size,
offset and bolt pattern are measured and each wheel's style/spoke design, the vehicle's brake caliper shape and
many other variables are checked for proper clearance and fit. Because of the numerous wheel/vehicle combinations,
this often means each wheel has to be individually tested on the vehicle either manually or electronically using the
Other items we measure or verify:
- Bolt Pattern
- Centerbore Diameter
- Hub Diameter
- Load Capacity
- Lug Hardware
- Suspension Components Clearance

Custom applications? If you have a custom fitment, our sales specialists will gather the information needed to verify fitment
and will then confer with our fitment engineers to determine the selection of wheels available for your custom vehicle.
