Wheels and Rims Reno, NevadaWhat to Look for When Buying New Wheels:

Alloy Wheels

Think about buying alloy wheels if you do a lot of driving in the mountains or in stop-and-go traffic. Some alloy wheels are designed to encourage cool air flow over the brakes to prevent overheating. The alloy itself can help dissipate heat, too.

Plus-Size Your Rims

If you want to improve performance and add a sportier look, think about plus-sizing your rims. With a larger inner diameter, you’ll find steering is more responsive and your car holds the road better. Purchasing rims that are one or two sizes larger than what you have means you’ll have to buy new tires as well.

Keep The Weight Down

Look for rims that aren’t too heavy for your vehicle. Big, steel rims on a small car can decrease handling ability. Heavy wheels are unsprung weight–not supported by your car’s suspension– and therefore useless for smoothing out the ride or improving balance in driving maneuvers.

Summer is Here!

Road tripping has never been easier

Thanks to a few tips our ASE Certified Mechanics would like to share about achieving safe summer travel. While vehicles need maintenance year-round, driving long distances in high temperatures adds more strain to your vehicle.

Hot asphalt is tough on tires, and a faulty radiator won’t last long if tested under harsh conditions. So before you pack up the car and your friends and family to hit the road, take a short break, check a few vitals and make sure your ride is vacation-ready.

We are happy to be your one-stop-shop for quality vehicle repair, performance wheels & tires, and gas. Thank you.
