Custom Wheels and Tires for Your Quincy Ride

Posted November 15, 2020 11:55 AM


 

It seems like everywhere you go in the Quincy area you see custom wheels. Big trucks, little cars, mini-vans - it doesn't matter - are expressing themselves with custom wheels. Some IL auto owners want smaller tires and wheels - some want larger - and some want them enormous. So where do you start if you want new wheels? At Spring Street Automotive Inc, 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 vehicle factory wheels.

Your tire and wheel professional at Spring Street Automotive Inc in Quincy 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.

So, what about Quincy drivers who want to upsize? Well, if you want bigger wheels, but you want to keep the same overall tire diameter, that's pretty easy for the team at Spring Street Automotive Inc. The same offset concerns apply. You need to know that the tires will likely be a little bit wider than the originals and you don't want them to rub when you make sharp turns. Your tire professional at Spring Street Automotive Inc in Quincy will help you avoid this.

Heading the other direction, some vehicle owners in the Quincy area like to run smaller than standard wheels and lower the suspension. All of the same fitment issues still apply as well as calibration issues. Don't think that vehicle suspension modifications are a bad thing. Many systems actually improve ride, function and performance over the stock set-up.

Regardless of your budget, you want your vehicle to continue to do all the things you need it to do. Some of those show cars and trucks you see on TV and Quincy showrooms  look good but have been modified in ways that may not suit your needs. For example, if you put large rims on your SUV with low profile tires, you may be in for busted rims if you go off-roading a lot around the Quincy area. There just isn't enough sidewall to absorb the impact of thumping over rocks.

Some stuff the largest tires and wheels possible in their vehicles but have to severely restrict suspension travel so that the tires aren't rubbing all day. That can lead to a very harsh ride around IL. Again, talk with your Spring Street Automotive Inc wheel professional about all of these things: how you drive in Quincy, what look you are going for, your budget and what compromises you are willing to make.

At the end of the day, you're going to be rollin' out of Spring Street Automotive Inc with one sweet ride.
