Expert Advice on Wheels, Rims and Performance Tires

For some drivers, the biggest concern with their car is appearance. To maximize appearance, custom wheels and rims can be installed. Great looking rims are usually the first choice, but an owner's choice of rims really affects the car's performance too. Our team is made up of Industry Experts that are tuners and enthusiasts like you! At our shop you will always get true custom advice on vehicle wheels and car rims from an expert who is on the cutting edge of wheel style, wheel fitment and tire performance. To ensure that we stay at the forefront of the wheel, rims and tire industry, our team is regularly given detailed instruction on all of the latest in applications for new custom wheels, rims and tires. If you are in the market for a new set of performance tires, custom wheels or rims, then there is only one answer, Tire Shak. For further inquiries, please contact us.

The steps below will help guide you through the wheel buying process, ensuring sales, appearance and performance satisfaction.

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.
