What type of custom wheels do you want?
Aluminum Alloy Wheels: Light-weight and strong, these wheels improve performance, handling, and gas mileage. They also make your ride look cool and come in a finish that's right for you.
Custom Steel Wheels: Heavier than aluminum, these wheels are perfect for off-road driving and heavy-duty work. These strong wheels improve vehicle stability and come with finish options.
After choosing your wheels, pick a finish. Common options include polished, painted, powder-coated, or chrome plated finish. Feel free to ask one of our professionals which finish best suits your needs.

WHEELS & RIMS
The Manufacturing Process
- Cast Wheels: Aluminum wheels are manufactured through a process of pouring molten aluminum into a mold. The shape of the wheel is formed through a process of gravity or pressure casting.
- Machined Wheels: The machining process combines casting, heating, spinning, and precise pressurization to fill a mold with molten aluminum and shape the wheel.
- Forged Wheels: The forging process takes a solid piece of aluminum and molds the wheel through high heat and extreme pressure. The result is a light, dense, and strong wheel.
