Custom Wheels and Tires for Your East Greenbush Ride

Posted January 10, 2021 11:59 AM


 

It seems like everywhere you go in the East Greenbush area you see custom wheels. Big trucks, little cars, mini-vans - it doesn't matter - are expressing themselves with custom wheels. Some NY auto owners want smaller tires and wheels - some want larger - and some want them enormous. So where do you start if you want new wheels? At Pro Tech Tire & Auto, we suggest you start with your budget. We know, that sounds so practical. But if the look you're after goes beyond just new tires and wheels and enters into the world of suspension modifications, you need to be prepared for the additional cost.

Let's start with something easy - you want to give your ride a unique look and the stock wheel size is just right for you. One of the concerns you will have is that the new wheels have the same offset as your vehicle factory wheels.

Your tire and wheel professional at Pro Tech Tire & Auto in East Greenbush can help you find the right size wheel or install adapters to make your new wheels fit. All you have to do is pick from the hundreds of styles available.

So, what about East Greenbush drivers who want to upsize? Well, if you want bigger wheels, but you want to keep the same overall tire diameter, that's pretty easy for the team at Pro Tech Tire & Auto. The same offset concerns apply. You need to know that the tires will likely be a little bit wider than the originals and you don't want them to rub when you make sharp turns. Your tire professional at Pro Tech Tire & Auto in East Greenbush will help you avoid this.

Heading the other direction, some vehicle owners in the East Greenbush area like to run smaller than standard wheels and lower the suspension. All of the same fitment issues still apply as well as calibration issues. Don't think that vehicle suspension modifications are a bad thing. Many systems actually improve ride, function and performance over the stock set-up.

Regardless of your budget, you want your vehicle to continue to do all the things you need it to do. Some of those show cars and trucks you see on TV and East Greenbush showrooms  look good but have been modified in ways that may not suit your needs. For example, if you put large rims on your SUV with low profile tires, you may be in for busted rims if you go off-roading a lot around the East Greenbush area. There just isn't enough sidewall to absorb the impact of thumping over rocks.

Some stuff the largest tires and wheels possible in their vehicles but have to severely restrict suspension travel so that the tires aren't rubbing all day. That can lead to a very harsh ride around NY. Again, talk with your Pro Tech Tire & Auto wheel professional about all of these things: how you drive in East Greenbush, what look you are going for, your budget and what compromises you are willing to make.

At the end of the day, you're going to be rollin' out of Pro Tech Tire & Auto with one sweet ride.
