Engineering: How it Applies to Shopping for Aftermarket Car Rims

Tuesday, November 17, 2009 by Tire Rack Team
You can pick a certain look for your vehicle and hope for a perfect fit when you buy aftermarket car rims (more accurately referred to as wheels) or you can use the "Shop by Vehicle" tool on our site. Here's why:

Though wheel size, offset and/or bolt pattern are all important, they alone cannot ensure an exact fit. To avoid vibration, wheel/tire interference and unbalanced handling, you'll need to measure a few other critical wheel components. At Tire Rack, we do this with sophisticated electronic tools so that our fitment engineers can get extremely accurate measurements. Vehicles are measured as well, enabling us to compare the two sets of numbers in order to determine precise fitments. (Read more.)

All you need to really know is that it helps us help you find the perfect wheels—just search by vehicle, and we'll show you.
