Wheels help support the weight of a vehicle and serve as a connection between the entire tire-wheel assembly and a vehicle’s axle. Wheels may be made from steel, aluminum, or alloy. Parts on a wheel include the rim, centerbore, outboard face, and spokes. The rim is the part of the wheel that touches the tire. The empty space that allows the wheel to attach to the axle is the centerbore. The outboard face looks outward when the wheel is installed on a vehicle, and spokes are rods that extend outward from a wheel’s center. Some manufacturers create different spoke designs for aesthetic appeal. Unlike tires, wheels are not created for surface contact. If a wheel comes into close contact with the surface of the road for too long, the wheel assembly can incur irreparable damage, thereby limiting the effectiveness of the entire tire-wheel assembly. Replacing wheels as needed is extremely important for your safety and the performance of your vehicle.
If your current wheel is damaged beyond repair or you need assistance with the installation of a new wheel, allow our staff to help. We can assist you in finding the right wheel for your tire-wheel assembly, and we can aid you with all your wheel purchase and installation questions and needs. Our staff understands not all wheels are right for all vehicles. When you are ready to begin the wheel purchasing process, we can help you identify wheels with hub diameters that fit your vehicle’s axle. We will also assist you in finding wheels that have the correct bolt patterns for your vehicle. If you are in the market for a more striking wheel, we can help you with finding the right design. Whatever type of wheel you ultimately purchase, our dedicated and friendly staff is happy to help you with installation.
