Getting the Right Tires and Wheels in N. Hollywood

Posted September 5, 2021 7:28 AM

A lot of people get custom wheels in N. Hollywood. When you do this yourself (over the internet . . .) you could run into trouble if you're not careful. Sometimes, once they're mounted, they just don't fit right. The tires rub in turns or on bumps. You don't want that.

Consulting your Ed's Automotive Center tire professional can ensure you get the right fit. First he'll ask you a series of questions about your N. Hollywood driving needs and what you want in your new wheels. Now, not every wheel can go on every car. Care must be taken so that tires and wheels are not too large or that the wheel is centered too far towards the outside or the inside so the tires rub.

If you don't want to make any modifications to your vehicle, you would need to focus on the wheels that would fit. With trucks, some people in N. Hollywood like much bigger tires so they need a suspension lift.

Also, most N. Hollywood drivers don't realize that you need to keep the rolling diameter of your new tires – the overall height of the tire – very close to what came from the factory in order for your vehicle's anti-lock brakes and stability control systems to work properly.

The computers that control these systems are calibrated to a certain size tire. When you go bigger or smaller, the computer doesn't know what changes you made so it can't tell how fast you're going. This, of course, means it sends commands to the brakes and traction control that are based on the wrong speed. If you go with a different rolling diameter, your vehicle engine control computer can be reprogrammed for the new tire size.

Either way, there are hundreds of wheel and tire choices to choose from in CA. You can pick the style of wheel you want and then talk with your friendly and knowledgeable Ed's Automotive Center tire professional about how big the wheel should be – and how to select the right tire for your vehicle. Your Ed's Automotive Center service advisor will help you find the best tire to meet your style, performance, ride and handling needs in N. Hollywood.
