Wheels & Brakes

Buying used wheels and brakes is often more cost-effective than buying new ones, and in cases of vintage vehicles, it may be the only option. Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping.

Material and Type: Wheels are typically made from steel or alloy. Steel wheels are durable and cheaper, while alloy wheels are lighter and offer better performance and some prefer their looks compared to steel.

Size and Fitment: Ensure the wheels match your vehicle’s specifications, including diameter, width, offset, and bolt pattern. You can put larger wheels on, but experts recommend that you stay within 3% of the original equipment tire size’s diameter.

Condition: If you can, look at the wheels in person and check for cracks, bends, scuffs, or corrosion. Minor scratches or curb rash can be fixed. However, structural damage like cracks or bends can compromise safety.

Tire Compatibility: If the wheels come with tires, check their condition, size, and compatibility with your vehicle. Look for even tread wear and sufficient tread depth. Tires should not have bulges, cuts, or other signs of damage.

Brand and Model: Research the brand and model of the wheels. Some brands are known for better quality and durability and it’s worth paying a little more for higher quality.

Type and Compatibility: Brakes come in various types, such as disc or drum, and materials like ceramic or semi-metallic. Ensure the brakes match your vehicle’s specifications. Compatibility is crucial for effective braking performance.

Rotor and Pad Condition: Inspect the brake rotors for deep grooves, warping, or excessive wear. Brake pads should have sufficient material left. Uneven wear can indicate underlying issues in the braking system.

Brake Lines and Hoses: Check for any signs of wear, cracks, or leaks in brake lines and hoses. Good condition of these components is essential for safe braking.

OEM vs. Aftermarket: Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts are designed to fit your vehicle perfectly but can be more expensive. Aftermarket parts can offer good value but vary in quality. Research reputable aftermarket brands if considering this option.
