Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I am considering upgrading my truck with larger diameter wheels. I am not familiar with terms like offset, centerbore and bolt pattern. How do I figure out these dimensions so I can get the right size for my truck?

A. Offset is the distance between the wheel’s hub mounting surface and its centerline. With a zero offset, the hub mounting surface is exactly at the centerline. Centerbore is the machined hole in the center of the wheel. The bolt pattern has to do with how many lugs there are on the wheel. You can find 4, 5, 6 or 8 lugs. The distances between the lugs is not always standard so be sure to consult a tire and wheel specialist before making your purchase.

Q. What are “aftermarket wheels”? Will these work on any car or truck?

A. Just like everything else you buy these days, aftermarket tires and wheels can be purchased from a wide range of manufacturers. This is a great way to get a high-end look on a budget, but be sure to deal with a reputable shop so you don’t get poor quality or unknown brands that won’t hold up.

Q. I want to get some new tires for my car but just don’t have the money right now. How long can I expect used tires to wear? Will I still be able to get good performance with used tires?

A. Deals on Wheels always has a huge inventory of used tires on hand from a wide variety of manufacturers. We perform a thorough check on every used tire we take in, measuring the tread and checking the valve stem to make sure it meets our high standards. Used tires offer excellent performance and can last almost as long as a new set under the right driving conditions.
