I don’t normally go on Rants, but it’s about time someone did. This needs to happen.
After the most recent post about the new tire rack website I got more than a few comments stating the following.
“Can we pick wheel size now?”
“Oh, it’s just a tire selection, no wheel selection?”
“Can we reverse search wheel size?”
unfortunately the answer to all of the above is no.
I, among many other enthusiasts want to be able to select and BUY wheels from tire rack that we know will work. LET US PICK A SIZE! 🙂
I don’t want to have to use a “big wheel STI” (aka 96 Toyota Supra) to search for anything wider than 8.5″ for my STI.
Everyone I’ve talked to is willing to give up their “return if doesn’t fit” ability to have this function.
I understand “WHY” tire rack doesn’t have this feature available to everyone, people go to tire rack for a no questions asked fitment. Well tire rack, I want to say that there are some of us that know we can make a setup work. Sure we can call in and talk to a select few of your amazing customer service/sales guys who know how to fight their way through the system, but we should be able to do it online!
Especially with Tire Rack now carrying some of the bigger names in the import market (Namely Rays, Weds) they are a great option for us not only to search but to also buy!
Is there anyone else out there that thinks Tire Rack needs wheel size selection?
Allow me to pick Bolt Pattern, Width Range, Offset Range and Diameter Range. Hell Tire Rack has the software to also know special factory brake clearance. *hint* *hint* although the last part isn’t a pre-requisite for us getting what we want.
