Frequently Asked Questions

What can you use old rims for?

Upcycling is a form of recycling where you make the aged product more valuable than before. This often means using the materials to make arts and crafts. For example, you can use an old car rim as a unique base for a coffee table. Or you can make your summer sandals out of used tires.

What happens to old rims?

Most recycling centers, such as Cohen, accept metal rims for recycling. It is always a good idea to check in advance before bringing in old rims to ensure that the recycling center or retailer will accept them.

What are rims also called?

Rims are often referred to by what are actually wheels, especially for flashy, aftermarket products. This is probably because aftermarket wheels come in dramatic designs like deep dish/deep lip and concave wheel options that focus or depend on a prominent wheel lip.

Are there different types of rims?

One type of wheel rims you can get are made from steel. In the past, steel rims were the standard for vehicle wheels, but today, wheel rims are made of numerous other materials. Steel wheel rims are known as one of the more affordable options, and they can also be more durable than other options such as alloy.

How can I identify my rims?

The serial number for your wheels can be found inside the rim (under your rim tape). The serial is the seven digit number that typically starts with a “1” or “2”. Fun fact, usually the first 2 digits are the year in which it was manufactured.

How do you know if the rims are original?

How To Tell If Your Used Car Has OEM or Aftermarket Wheels:

  1. Visual Inspection – Find pictures of your car online and compare the wheels.
  2. Look for serial numbers and other identifying marks on the inside of the wheel.
  3. If you see “made in China”, don’t be alarmed.
  4. Compare the age of the car to the condition of the wheels.

Are all rims the same?

Wheel diameters can vary, but they typically range from 13″-24″ (or higher for specialized low profile fitments). Only wheels and tires of the same diameter can be safely mounted together, meaning you can only mount a 16″ tire on a 16″ wheel.

Do rims expire?

You can expect a standard set of rims to last you approximately 10 years. However, they can wear out sooner due to excess damage from impacts or scraping, underinflated tires, and corrosion. When they wear out, you’ll experience excess vibrations in the steering wheel, wheel alignment issues, and other problems.

Can all rims fit on any car?

Be Wary About Putting Wheels from Other Vehicles on Your Car

To fit correctly, offer the proper driving dynamics, and ensure safety, the wheel must have not only the proper bolt pattern, but also the proper width, centerbore, offset, and load capacity for the vehicle.
