Swapping out your rims is an easy way to upgrade your car’s look, and it can even make the car handle better, with improved steering response and cooler brakes. There’s a vast selection of used rims to choose from on eBay, but before you bid, be sure you’re getting the right size for your car. Most people buying rims look for bigger ones, but make sure they’re not too big—wheels that don’t fit the wheel well are a serious driving hazard. You should also measure (or find measurements for) the following dimensions: bolt pattern (the arrangement of bolt holes on the wheel), centerbore (the hole in the middle of the wheel), offset (the spacing between the hub surface and the centerline of the wheel), and backspacing (from the back of the mounting surface of the wheel to the edge of the rim). Know these measurements, and you’ll know you’re getting the right rims for your ride.
Wheels make your car go 'round, and used rims from eBay are a great way to make sure it looks good wherever you go. Don't forget your auto tools, and while you're there check out all the other parts and accessories you can find on the site.
