How to choose Tires & Rims

Fitting wheels that are a good match are very important, putting a modern wheel on a very early car can look so wrong. For me, a period car needs the appropriate period wheel to suit the car’s era and heritage. Conversely putting a very old style of wheel on a brand new car can very easily date the car. Finding a wheel style that suits your car and the vehicle type is a very important part of the process. At Platinum Wheels, we have taken as much of the guesswork out of this by simplifying the entire process. A test fit is the only way to ensure you get the exact wheels you are looking for the first time. Check out this video for more information.

*‘We know that there are so many wheels available on the market, and it can be quite confusing for a customer to go, “Oh, what am I gonna buy? “What’s good quality?” “What looks good? “How will it look on my car?” So what we do, is we really try to spend the time with you to make sure that you understand exactly what we’re doing throughout the whole process.

We’ll try some wheels on your car. You’ll get to see what it looks like. You really will understand exactly, “Yes, that’s what I want. “I’m getting what I want,” before you have to buy. What we’ve found was that most shops in the industry really don’t take the time to get to know the customer, and all they’re really interested in doing is pointing at wheels on the wall, and saying, “Yep, buy that one, it looks good.”

We wanted to redefine that and make sure that every single customer got treated as a person. They come through, we take the time to get to know you. We talk about your car. We know that you only get one shot at getting it right, so you’ve gotta make sure you do try the wheels out. You do get the right colour, you do get the right fitment, and that’s what we’re here for.

We get a lot of feedback from our customers. They’re really happy because we took the time to explain everything along the way. The customers kind of feel like, “Wow, these guys actually understand my needs!”

So, if you’re in the market for a set of wheels, we have a buyer’s guide on the website here you can download for free. As well as that, if you wanted to know a bit more about tires, there’s complete information pack you can get about your tires. It’s also a free download, and our team are here to take a call any time we’re open.’
