How to choose a new set of custom wheels

In this blog by Pfaff Tuning, we take a look at a few ways that you can choose a new set of custom wheels for your vehicle.

Think about the visuals 

The style and finish on a set of custom rims can dramatically change the look of your car or truck. Start shopping right now or visit us at Pfaff Tuning where you’ll find a massive selection of custom wheel options by our suppliers. Here, you can see specific sets of custom wheels on the make, model, year, and color of your vehicle. This is a great way to sift through the many options and narrow your choices before making a commitment. Our technicians can also help you narrow down your choices and decide upon the best custom wheel options for your vehicle type and the look and performance you’re wanting to achieve.

Think about safety 

Proper fit is crucial when choosing custom wheels. Our experts at Pfaff Tuning will help you look at three vital areas before choosing your set of wheels.


The wheel and tire combination should always clear the braking components, suspension parts, and the body of the vehicle. This is important whether you want to increase the diameter of your wheels for a street-worthy look, or decrease the wheel diameter for more tire sidewall and better off-road performance.

Offset and Backspace:

To ensure proper clearance, it’s critical to know how far inside and outside the entire wheel and tire package will sit in the wheel well. Improper backspace or offset can cause interference with things like the body and steering components, and possibly decrease your turning radius.


Many of today’s vehicles come from the factory with wheels that fit precisely around the hub. This is referred to as hub-centric fitment, which helps provide a consistent centering of the wheel and tire assembly when mounted to the vehicle. This reduces the chance of an imbalance that may result in a vibration in the steering wheel or seat while driving. Our team understands the importance of maintaining a hub-centric fit whenever aftermarket wheels are being considered.

The bolt pattern matters

There are a variety of bolt patterns and your new custom wheels must match in order to fit your vehicle properly. Even if your vehicle has five lugs, there’s no guarantee that every five-hole wheel will fit. At Pfaff Tuning, we stock thousands of custom wheels and can help you find the right bolt pattern and fit for your vehicle.

These are just a few of the things to consider when you are looking for a new set of custom wheels for your vehicle. Let our experts at Pfaff Tuning assist you in finding the best set of custom wheels for your vehicle and the look and performance you are going for.
