The Basics Behind Wheel Purchase & Wheel Installation Services at Thompson Tire & Retread, Inc.

Wheels help support the weight of a vehicle and serve as a connection between the entire tire-wheel assembly and a vehicle’s axle. Wheels may be made from steel, aluminum, or alloy. Parts on a wheel include the rim, centerbore, outboard face, and spokes. The rim is the part of the wheel that touches the tire. The empty space that allows the wheel to attach to the axle is the centerbore. The outboard face looks outward when the wheel is installed on a vehicle, and spokes are rods that extend outward from a wheel’s center. Some manufacturers create different spoke designs for aesthetic appeal. Unlike tires, wheels are not created for surface contact. If a wheel comes into close contact with the surface of the road for too long, the wheel assembly can incur irreparable damage, thereby limiting the effectiveness of the entire tire-wheel assembly. Replacing wheels as needed is extremely important for your safety and the performance of your vehicle.
