ARE USED TIRES WORTH BUYING?
We say, “NO” Don’t buy used tires: you don’t know where they have been or how they’ve been used. The tire could have been driven overloaded, underinflated, or to excessively high speed. Any one or a combination of these factors could lead to internal damage not visible from the outside. In short, the used tire could be unsafe.
Since the safety of a car and its occupants is in part dependent on the four tires it rides on, it seems like buying used tires to save a few bucks may be far more costly in the long run
ARE ALL AFTER MARKET WHEELS THE SAME?
NO - All wheels are not made the same. Lower priced wheels are much more likely to get bent or cracked, since they are made from much weaker, more porous material. These wheels can also cause a major vibration on the vehicle or rub on suspension or brake parts.
The performance of an alloy wheel is a direct result of the manufacturing technique employed. We offer a wide range of wheel choices from manufacture's that have adopted the manufacturing processes that meet the strict O.E.M. (Original Equipment manufacturers) requirements. Wheel companies that supply to the O.E.M. market must follow certain procedures during the manufacturing process to maintain the quality and integrity of their product.
ARE CHINESE TIRES ANY GOOD?
Short answer is NO. We do carry a few of these brands for customers on a very tight budget but we do not recommend tires that are designed and engineered in China by Chinese firms.
Cut-rate tires from Chinese manufacturers are not generally a smart buy, especially when things like reduced traction, questionable tread life and elevated noise are factored in. That set of ultra-cheap tires may not be such a screaming deal if your car slides off the road when it’s raining or they need to be replaced after just six months of service.
