Ready, Set, Go

Do you have more than one set of tires and wheels for your cars? Are you tired of paying your car dealer to register your tire pressure sensor codes every time you rotate tires or swap out extra sets of tires/wheels?

If you own one or any of the applicable models from the following manufacturers you can avoid those expensive trips to the dealer and store several sets of TPMS sensor codes, for up to 4 separate vehicles, by using the ATEQ TPM QuickSet Reset Tool.

  • Acura
  • Honda
  • Hyundai
  • Infiniti
  • Kia
  • Lexus
  • Mitsubishi
  • Nissan
  • Scion
  • Subaru
  • Toyota

The ATEQ TPM QuickSet Reset Tool is a valuable tool to reset a vehicle's Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) when replacing sensors or swapping tire sets, for instance, from a summer Tire & Wheel Package to a winter package. Additionally, the tool's "swapping tires" function assists you in tracking and recording the TPM sensor information after rotating tires.

ATEQ TPM QuickSet Reset Tool
The PC software (included) provides easy, step-by-step instructions for reset.

Features:

  • Compatible with future applications (upgradable online)
  • Advanced stream decoding for faster signal recognition
  • OBDII plug-in extension cable
  • Easy, step-by-step instructions
  • Tire rotation tracking and recording
  • Save and restore old tire configuration
All you need to do is connect the Quickset to your PC and download the current software. Connect the Quickset tool to your car through the OBDII diagnostic link connector under the dash on the driver's side, and retrieve the sensor codes from your existing wheels. Save these codes and any additional codes for a second set and the tool is enabled to switch between "winter" and "summer" wheels or "track" and "street."

Why bother with the hassle of tying up your car and taking valuable time away from your busy schedule? For what it would cost to have the sensor codes reset at the dealer a couple of times you could own the ATEQ TPM QuickSet Reset Tool and make the swap yourself in just a few minutes.

Easy Storage Solutions for Snow Tires and Rims

Thursday, March 18, 2010 by Tire Rack Team
Spring is here, and for those of you who trade out snow traction tires for summer performance rims and tires, Tire Rack has a few easy tire storage solutions you might be interested in


Let's start with the Tire Storage Rack. It holds up to 400 pounds, and beats a stack of tires in the corner of your garage or basement any day.




If the walls in your garage are consumed with racks of bikes or random pieces of yard equipment, you might have no other option but to stack your snow wheels and tires in a corner. With the Tire Garage, they'll be out of site and out of mind until the snow falls again.




The Seasonal Tire Tote is another tire storage option. They're especially great for transporting competition tires, but will protect your snow wheels and tires just the same. To create a fully enclosed tire bag, you'll want to invest in Wheel Felts, too. These industrial felt pads will close off the Tire Tote for worry-free transportation and storage.


As your tires online store, we do everything we can to give you the one-stop shopping experience. Check out our complete selection of accessories—you might find something you've always been looking for!

Tire Rack: The online wheel store...and more.

Tuesday, November 10, 2009 by Tire Rack Team
In 1996, Tire Rack introduced the world to an up-to-date website that allowed consumers to thoroughly research their performance products purchases. Those purchases included wheels, which helped make Tire Rack a premiere online wheel store.

And we've remained as such to this day.

Our relationships with some of the most prestigious wheel brands ensures our ability to offer you wheels and accessories that are right for your vehicle. You won't be limited to a certain brand or price range—we'll show you the gamut, and you can pick a wheel knowing you've seen it all.

And you literally can see it all! Select your vehicle's make, model and year in the Upgrade Garage, then select "Wheels" to see what fits your vehicle. In the Upgrade Garage, you'll see an image of your vehicle—and you'll be able to try different wheels on it.

Search results always include a variety of finishes, accurately depicted sizes and current pricing. If your vehicle has a tire pressure monitoring system we'll show you the sensors you might need to purchase to keep things running as designed.

And speaking of tires, we've got an excellent selection. A car tire store and online wheel store -- that's Tire Rack -- and more.
