Please email us for more information.

Will these wheels fit my car?
Wheel fitment depends on many variables. In addition to wheel size, bolt pattern, and offset, factors such as ride height, camber settings, tire size, and fender modification determine if a particular wheel will fit your car. Do your homework! Don't buy wheels until you know they'll fit (or you know you can make them fit)! We recommend searching for pictures of your same vehicle with known wheel/tire/suspension specs to use as a visual guide. Also, try out our Offset Calculator.

Do you offer wheel repair/refinishing or custom work?
Not at this time.

What should I torque my wheel bolts to?
Please refer to our Torque Tables. We recommend you re-torque all bolts after driving about 100 miles or so.

NOTE: Please use our Torque Tables as a baseline guide only, making adjustments where necessary for your particular application. We DO NOT recommend reusing old bolts. Though using old, original bolts is commonplace in wheel refinishing, please be aware that torquing old and stretched bolts to the specs listed in the table can cause them to break.

Can you make or find stickers for my wheels?
We cannot "make" nor can we "find" fake decals for your wheels. All of the decals we carry are AUTHENTIC.

Can you find bolts for my wheels?

Which valve stems will fit my wheels?

Why haven't I received a reply to my email?
If you haven't received a reply to an email or contact form submission, your question probably falls into one of these categories:
  • If you asked if we carry or can find a product that is not on the web site, we are currently trying to source your items and will notify you as soon as they are stateside. If you have not received a reply, that simply means we have not been able to source your requested items as of yet.
  • If you asked a fitment question that can be easily answered with a web search, your message was most likely ignored. This allows us more time to answer the more pertinent, higher priority questions we receive. This also applies to subjective questions such as "Which wheels will look good on my car?" or "How much are my wheels worth?" as well as any questions that have been answered above.
