I bought a set of 16-inch Sport Edition F2 wheels with Yokohama tires. The center cap has fallen off one of the wheels and was lost on some highway in California. Is it possible to get the center cap that says Sport Edition on it??
Yes, we can get you a cap. They are priced at $6 each plus shipping. Give me a call and we'll get your cap on the way or you can order Sport Edition Center Caps online. What you need is at the bottom of the list (sorry, no photo is available at this time).
Imput your vehicle year make and model then select the wheel you need the hardware for and click the optional harware tab to select the center caps.
In addition to winter / snow tires, we offer a variety of inexpensive, yet stylish, wheels to complement the looks of your vehicle. The majority of these inexpensive wheels are painted silver, gray or black (nothing chrome or polished, folks...those tend to not hold up very wheel to the salt, rocks, and debris that are common occurrence in snow driving) and are a practical alternative to mounting and dismounting tires on the same wheels twice a year. Tire Rack offers a variety of inexpensive alloy wheels from Sport Edition, Elbrus, moda, and Borbet for virtually any budget.
So consider buying dedicated winter wheels this season. They're practical, efficient, and in the long run, a terrific investment. Call us or order online today!
For example, one such size for the 2007 Mustang V6 is the 235/60R16 Sumitomo HTR A/S P01. The tire fits correctly on the vehicle and wheel but is wider than stock. Another is 255/50R17 -- it will rub under full lock when mounted on 9” wide wheels with an ET40 or higher. We can offer suggestions on vehicle modifications that will allow oversize tires to fit in some cases.

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.
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.
The PC software (included) provides easy, step-by-step instructions for reset.
- 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
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.

And as your full-service online tire and wheel shop, Tire Rack is here to help with a few quick pointers.
For starters, make sure your threads are clean and dry. Lubricant or dirt, even oil and grease can weaken the torque values which might cause you to over-tighten the wheels. And if you over-tighten the wheels, you risk ruining the lug nut or hub, among other things.
Once your threads are clean, feel free to apply the lug hardware by hand before you finish the tightening process with a torque wrench. Be sure to follow the bolt pattern that corresponds with your vehicle.
You can read more about the torquing process in our library of wheel tech articles, and if it's the wheel you need, feel free to shop our complete collection of aftermarket wheels.
The answer is "no," you did not get the wrong tires! The critical part of the tires in question is the outboard side being mounted out. Typically the outboard is going to have bigger tread blocks to stand up to the stresses of cornering better than the smaller tread blocks on the inside of the tread. Between the shoulder tread blocks some tread patterns seem to be running backwards, the significance of this appearance is overshadowed by the necessity to mount the outboard shoulder on the outside of the wheel.
So if you have the appearance of two of the tires running backward when looking at the tread but have the outside sidewall mounted out the tire is mounted correctly.
Below are examples of asymmetrical tread patterns:
Bridgestone Potenza RE-11
Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric
Continental ExtremeContact DWS
For starters, every vehicle is different. Simply searching by wheel size, offset and/or bolt pattern is not enough. To get an exact fit, it is necessary to pay attention to a series of details. So when you shop by vehicle, our systems calls upon a variety of measurements pertaining to your vehicle. All of which have been taken electronically by a series of tools. Wheels are measured similarly. After which a computer-aided design program creates a virtual drawing that allows our fitment engineers to decipher perfect matches. (Read more.)
Sounds complicated, and it is, but in the end you'll be satisfied with a fit that lacks vibration, wheel/tire interference and unbalanced handling.
When it comes to selecting the right tires, shopping by vehicle allows us to determine correct tire size information from the get-go. But size alone cannot determine an appropriate tire. The type of vehicle, where you drive it, wheel size...it all plays a role and that's where our Tire Decision Guide becomes a great resource.
And if you're in the market for both tires and wheels, we always recommend that you shop for a Tire and Wheel Package. Not only is it cost-effective, tires and wheels come premounted for easy installation. And of course–you can rest assured that it's a high quality, vehicle-specific, exact fitment.
In fact, now is most definitely the time to buy. With the onset of spring, we rolled out (pardon the pun) our biggest and best collection of aftermarket rims and tires to date...and a few other new things, too. Like car suspension products, a brake system upgrade and even a few engine tuning products.

If you're looking for BMW rims, maybe Mercedes rims, or if you drive a Volkswagen or Audi, you might want to look at Bremmer Kraft wheels as an aftermarket upgrade.
Bremmer Kraft wheels are manufactured with strict quality control standards to produce a very reliable wheel. And as your online wheels and tires store, we feel completely comfortable suggesting them as an attractive option for your vehicle.
We recently added the following to our collection:
The BR05 wheel comes in black with a machined lip (left) or bright silver paint (right) finishes. A quick search according to vehicle will help you determine if these would work for you, or you can check out our entire collection of Bremmer Kraft wheels. You'll find size and pricing information for every option we've got.
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!
The Akebono ProAct Ceramic Pads have met my expectations. They work well in rain and dry conditions and do not make a lot of dust. One thing I did notice during winter driving is the Akebono ProAct Ceramic Pads do have a little more initial bite as the front wheels have locked up a few more times than last winter with my O.E. brake pads (no ABS on the Impala). No worries; a small change to my braking style and I'm happy with the overall performance of the brake system on my car.
Not to forget the brake rotors, as its always a great time to replace brake rotors and brake pads at the same time. The Centric Premium Rotor is a great Original Equipment replacement rotor. One thing I really like about the Centric Premium Rotor is the Electrocoating (E-coating) black finish. The finish really makes the rotors look sharp especially if you have a wheel that shows the rotors or, have a winter wheel that shows the rotor more than the summer wheels.
Check to see which rotors or brake pads work best for your car at Tire Rack. Tire Rack has many brake system options to chose from. I just wanted something like the Original Equipment brake system. You may want to step it up for some additional performance. Tire Rack can offer you the custom brake pad and rotor package to meet your needs.
