Chrome Wheels are for show purposes only and come with no warranty. All Alloy wheel warranty claims must be returned to the manufacturer for inspection. The manufacturer’s decision on warranty is final. Any Damaged (e.g. Kerbed Wheels) will not be covered by any of our manufacturers guarantees.
E. (2) FITTING ADVICE
If you cannot have these wheels professionally fitted, please read these instructions carefully before fitting.Some wheels will have a different size centre bore than that of your vehicle. If this is the case we will have sent you some plastic rims of the correct size that are called ‘spiggot rings’. These need to be fitted firmly and squarely on the hub BEFORE you attempt to fit the wheels. If you do not do this your wheel will cause vibrations inside the car.
Multi Drilled Wheels (8 or 10 hole wheels)Sometimes the wheels we supply are drilled to fit several vehicles. If it seems that the wheels wont go onto the vehicle. Please try and rotate the wheel slightly as the next set of holes will be correct.Please check that the nut/bolts provided in the package are the correct thread by simply fitting one bolt/nut before hand. If you can only get 1 or 2 turns of thread engagement they will be incorrect and you should not proceed,but contact us first for advice. This however would be a rare mistake but it is better to be safe than sorry.
When the wheels have been fitted, please ensure the wheel rotates freely before letting the vehicle down from the lift.
