It seems like everywhere you go in the Alpine area you see custom wheels. Big trucks, little cars, mini-vans - it doesn't matter, motorists are expressing themselves with custom wheels. Some CA drivers want smaller tires and wheels - some want larger - and some want them enormous. So where do you start if you want new wheels? At Alpine Auto Repair, we suggest you start with your budget. We know, that sounds so practical. But if the look you're after goes beyond just new tires and wheels and enters into the world of suspension modifications, you need to be prepared for the additional cost. Let's start with something easy - you want to give your ride a unique look and the stock wheel size is just right for you. One of the concerns you will have is that the new wheels have the same offset as your truck factory wheels. First, what is offset? The wheel bolts onto the hub on the truck's axle. The distance from the inside edge of the wheel to the point at which it bolts on, is the offset. If the new wheel has a different offset from the factory, the tires may rub on the inside or outside of the wheel well. That could lead to catastrophic and (pricey) tire failure. Your tire and wheel professional at Alpine Auto Repair in Alpine can help you find the right size wheel - or install adapters to make your new wheels fit. All you have to do is pick from the hundreds of styles available.
