“A dealership told me I needed over $2200 of work on my car - I felt their quote was too high so called Elite and spoke with Jayden (hope I spelled correctly) then decided to bring it to them for an inspection- turns out none of the work was needed!”
“Element stayed in touch with regular updates and even offered to let me chose something else or cancel the order despite the fact that their policy states once the manufacturing process has started on a custom set you cannot make changes.”
Do you do installations at your store?
Yes, we are a full service shop. All mounting, balancing, and installation of wheels is performed in house. In addition, we install performance parts, suspension, and vehicle accessories.
What warranty does the product come with?
All of our non-Clearance wheels and tires come with a manufacturers warranty. Clearance items do not come with a warranty as many times the wheel is being discontinued, and will on longer be available.
What is offset/ET?
The distance from the centerline of the wheel to the face of the mounting surface of the wheel that contacts the hub. A simple way to understand offset, is the lower the offset, the more the wheel will stick out, likewise, the higher the offset, the more the wheel will tuck. For example, and Honda Civic generally uses around a +40mm offset. So if you put a +15mm offset wheel on the car, the wheel is likely to stick out about 1 inch. You can find out more about wheel offset here.
What is the proper inflation for my tires?
Proper inflation pressure is necessary for optimum tire performance, safety and best fuel economy. To maintain proper inflation pressure, frequently check tires (when they are cool) with an accurate tire pressure gauge. For example, it is difficult to tell just by looking at radial tires whether they are under inflated. Always maintain inflation pressure at the level recommended by the vehicle manufacturer as shown on the vehicle placard or in the Owner's Manual. Higher inflation pressure increases stiffness which may deteriorate ride and generate unwanted vibration. Under inflation is the most common cause of failures in any kind of tire and may result in severe cracking, component separation or "blowout," with unexpected loss of vehicle control and accident. Under inflation increases sidewall flexing and rolling resistance resulting in heat and mechanical damage.
How often should I rotate my tires?
That depends. Refer to your owner's manual for exact guidelines, but most manufacturers recommend rotating tires roughly every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. Again, see your owner's manual for specifics.
