Should you buy used rims?

Why should you buy a used wheel? 


Used stock original wheel warehouse

A straight used stock wheel that has been carefully inspected may be a good option compared to a reconditioned rim or new take-off wheel. You may prefer a used OE rim over a reconditioned replacement wheel if the vehicle is older or if your customer is on a budget. Here at 1-800EveryRim OEM Wheels, we are experts on factory original rims and we can help you with a variety of condition options.

While we do deal in recons and new take-offs, you may not need that “like-new” wheel. A used factory wheel costs significantly less than a reconditioned or take-off wheel and your customer may just need a functional replacement that stays within their budget. 

If a person owns a much older car, more than likely they may not want a shiny new wheel that will stick out from the other three rims. Our inventory of used wheels are graded with our 12-tier grading scale which categorizes based on the wheel’s condition. This easy to understand grading scale takes into account brand new rims that have never been mounted to a wheel that is worn but a perfect choice for many older cars.
