Wheel Services In Memphis
The purpose of the wheels on your vehicle is to allow movement forward or backward. Wheels are essential to your vehicle and should be inspected regularly to check for any misshapen or improperly functioning parts. Wheels are formed from one of two processes, either casting or forging them from steel, aluminum, or aluminum alloy. If your wheels are cast, they are formed from liquid metal poured into a mold. A forged wheel is heated and formed into its final shape. Mounting holes are located in the center of the wheel, known as the drop center, and allow bolts to be pushed through as a means to attach your wheels to your vehicle.
Wheels require specific attention to ensure the vehicle tires are secure and also functioning properly. The flange, or raised lip at the outer edge of the wheel, creates a bead seat to help hold your tires securely into place on your wheel. All areas of your wheels should work correctly. Whether it is maintenance to repair damaged wheels or preventative maintenance to catch any potential problems, our service technicians are ready to assist you. We will ensure your wheels fit properly with accurate installation and function seamlessly in the manner they were intended.
