Our Alloy Wheel and Tyre range contains some of the highest quality, most innovatively designed, 'value for money' and varied wheels and tyres on today's market. All of the wheel designs that we sell have been quality checked, and have passed some of the highest standards and levels of product testing available today. When it comes to our wheel and tyre packages, all of our Rimstyle packages come with tyres that as standard have passed quality tests and inspections. Our entry level tyres offer extreme value for money and good longevity, with a vast selection of them offering some very good EC ratings too, but don't forget high performance tyre upgrades are also available at discounted prices should you wish to upgrade and improve further your new package.
Chose Rimstyle, and you will receive:
- 4x Brand new high quality alloy wheels (we DO NOT sell used, replica or second hand products).
- 4x Brand new tyres of your choice (if ordering a Wheel & Tyre Package).
- FREE digital balancing of your Wheel & Tyre assembly using concealed Trax 'Ultra Adhesive' Stick-On Weights (if ordering a Wheel & Tyre Package).
- FREE fitting kit.
- FREE full and thorough quality inspection prior to despatch.
What makes up the FREE fitting kit we supply?
The FREE fitting kit that we supply includes a brand new set of wheel bolts or wheel nuts, dependant on vehicle specification, and 4x Free Spigot rings (if required and explained below).
Made from plastic or metal, spigots allow perfect fitment and alignment of your alloy wheels when the centre bore differs from the hub lip diameter. A spigot ring is fitted in the back of the wheel with an outer diameter the size of the centre bore, and an inner diameter the size of the hub lip to allow the wheel to be correctly located onto the hub, and fit snug onto the vehicle for safety and comfort. Only supplied if necessary, and Free of charge. NOT to be confused with a wheel spacer.
There are some wheel fitments that are designed to accept the original wheel bolts or nuts that the car came with, in which case we do not supply new bolts or nuts. This is particularly common with some Porsche and Van fitments. We do indicate on the final product page whether the bolts/nuts are included.
Each set of alloy wheels sold is provided with detailed fitting / care guidelines. It is very important that these guidelines are correctly followed, not only for your safety, but also to prolong the life of your new wheels/tyres. Not only this, we are on hand via email and phone with full technical support, and you guessed it, this is included!
Note: If you are neither qualified to, nor competant/experienced in wheel fitting, we advise that your new wheels and Tyres are fitted professionlly in your local area.
Custom packaging for damage free transit you say?
All goods are thoroughly checked prior to despatch, and are then securely wrapped and packaged and security sealed to ensure safe transit, using the correct selection of our custom packing materials. We use some of the latest wrapping and packaging techniques available, and have our packaging exclusively designed and manufactured for our pre-built wheel and tyre units, which not ensures the products reach you in perfect condition, and means we can get the items packaged exceptionally quickly, to ensuring your order is with you without delay. Packaging is so important when mail ordering so we take it very seriously, to ensure your goods reach you in the condition they were in when they left us. No item leaves us without a thorough Quality Control check to ensure its undamaged and we intend to keep it this way for arrival at your door.
Q.C Department in house…
Before a product leaves Rimstyle, a member of our team is on hand to Quality / specification control the product, ensuring it is checked thoroughly and meets our standards before it leaves - The correct model, size, and specification, and ensuring that the product reaches you in the condition that we expect it to arrive to our warehouse in before sale. And at Rimstyle, high standards is part of our job description! Damaged wheels do not leave our door.
Locking Nuts/Bolts explained (optional):
An optional extra, these have now been reduced to Only £10.00 with every set of wheels and when bought separately from Rimstyle. They are an optimum accessory to help to keep your new wheels safe from theft.
With each kit you receive 4 locking nuts or bolts, whichever is relevant to your cars fitment, and a key to lock them on to the car. You simply tighten one into each wheel in place of one of the standard nuts/bolts to lock the wheels on to your car. Great at helping to prevent fraud and deterring thieves!
Wheel Cleaner Care kit? Tell me more… (optional)
An optional extra, our wheel cleaner care kits are a revolutionary way to wash, shine and protect your wheels in as little as 5 minutes… simply spray and wipe! No need for buckets or hoses and no mess to clean up. Even removes bugs, tar, tree sap, road film and bird droppings.
Formulated with AFMT (anti-friction metal treatment), special lubricating agents encapsulate and lift dirt particles to clean safely without scratching, leaving a smooth shiny, water-beading coating on your wheels.
How will you fit my tyres to my wheels?
To ensure a 100% success rate of damage free, error free tyre fitting to wheel, we use top of the range Hoffman Megaplan tyre fitting equipment. Equipped with the latest technology, our man and machine combination uses the technology of several protective plastic covered levers and arms, electronic turning plate and clamp mechanism, and the the skills and know-how of some of the best tyre fitters in the industry to ensure your tyres could not be fitted better, the correct way round according to tread direction too.
What does wheel balancing mean?
Once a tyre is fitted to a wheel, the assembled unit needs to be balanced before it is ready for vehicle fitment. This isn't required at first when just wheels alone are purchased, this will need to be carried out when and where you choose to have tyres fitted to the wheels. However, when we fit the tyres for you, we include a full digital balancing of your wheel and tyre units free of charge in our Hoffman equipped balance bay. We use 'zero tolerance' balancing which means we don't just get the wheel balancing close, we get it right, using industry leading Trax Ultra adhesive, Ultra corrosion resistant balance weights, concealed for optimum looks and for optimum longevity.
Tyre valves explained:
When mounting tyres, we fit a tyre valve which essentially enables you to put air in and out of the tyre. As standard we use a short black rubber valkve on our wheel and tyre sets free of charge, and unless a free polished valve upgrade is stated (often found on our Fox range of wheels) you can upgrade the valves we fit to a polished silver valve which comes with a polished metal stem cover and cap. A nice finishing touch and available to be purchased with wheel only sets too!
Your product warranty is included!
All product warranties and guarantees, provided by the product manufacturers and the UK importers, are included. If you have a claim under warranty, the moment you contact us we will act to process your warranty claim in the quickest time possible, and treat as a matter of urgency. All warranty claims must be accompanied by an original invoice and proof of purchase. Some companies charge for extra warranty cover, we include it!
Please Note: Alloy Wheels in chrome are excluded from a finish warranty, and alloy wheels with a polished face or rim come with a 6 month warranty. This is due to the climate in the UK and salts that are used on the roads, so ensure high levels of maintenance and care are applied.

A) Most wheel manufacturer's only supply one main picture for each wheel design, but the wheel model will be available in a variety of fitments. The picture is for illustration purposes only, so sometimes may show 4 holes, sometimes 5, but the wheels will be suppied in the correct stud pattern for your car. Once you select your vehicle details on our webiste, the website will only display wheels that ARE MADE in the correct stud pattern (PCD) for your car.|
|Q) The website says that the wheels fit my vehicle, but how do I know that they actually do? A) Our website data is compiled by our experienced wheel experts from a variety of sources.
