I was in Cleveland, OH visiting from Maryland and got a breakdown over the weekend. I had 2 bent rims, and ended up staying in a hotel because everywhere was close till Monday. I searched a couple of places but Quest Rims was the only business I found credible or at least knowledgeable about rim repair work. Everywhere I checked takes 2 days and I need it to be done on the same day. I called up Quest Rim and spoke with Terrance around 10:30 am and was over there by noon. Terrance treated me with courtesy and respect. I was a little worried about how long it would take because I had to drive 8 hours back to Maryland. I walked in and was helped right away. I got both rims fixed for $270 but one of the rims was irreparable due to the impact. Terrance still manages to fix the rim just so I can get home and refunded me $145 for the rim. Most places would have still charged me the full cost for straighten and balancing the bent rim. The damaged rim held up and I was able to get back to Maryland safe. Absolutely perfect service!!! I couldn't have been happier with the service, great professionalism, and very competitive price. ABSOLUTELY THE MOST FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT, PROFESSIONAL, AND EASY EXPERIENCE I'VE HAD WITH RIM REPAIRS, EVER! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE FOLKS AT QUEST RIMS. If I could give this place unlimited stars I would, but 5 stars would do the job also!!!!
Tips & Advices
Wheel caster is the angle created by the steering pivot points, from the front to the back of the vehicle. It is positive if the line angles forward, and negative if it angles back. A positive caster typically makes the car or truck more stable at higher speeds.
The camber angle of a wheel is the measured angle in degrees, between a wheels vertical alignment, perpendicular to the road. Wheels perfectly perpendicular to the road are at 0 degrees. This is considered ideal to prevent uneven wear on the surface of the tire and also to maximize standard performance. This is part of the alignment of the vehicle and can be adjusted for performance purposes.
Wheels can absolutely affect gas mileage. Larger, heavier wheels and tires create added weight to the car, generally decreasing mileage; lighter-weight wheels are prone to enhancing gas mileage.
As long as the wheels are made by an accredited manufacturer or machine shop, they are safe to use within the boundaries set forth by the manufacturer. There can be exceptions with random wheel failures, but, generally, they are completely safe as long as they are installed correctly and driven within the guidelines set forth by the manufacturer.
Changing wheels can affect the performance of the car. Size, width, and weight are among the factors that affect performance. Some wheels emphasize straight-ahead performance, usually associated with drag racing, while others are associated with performance and handling, while still others are purely ornamental in nature. Tires have much more impact on performance than wheels, however.
