5 MISTAKES When Buying Wheels & Tires

Hey guys, foot again with custom offsets custom offsets TV on the YouTube. You guys asked for five more mistakes from buying wheels and tires, so we're bringing that to you now. So if you haven't seen the first five mistakes, make sure you check out that one. But additionally, we will show you five more, so one common one that we get all the time is people think they can reuse their stock. Lug nuts, so you'll see how much bigger this is compared to an aftermarket lug nut that you can get when you buy your wheels and tires. So this one is no good, basically with every wheel and tire the aftermarket lug nuts are required because the stock ones don't fit and there's many different styles you can choose from whether it be the standard, chrome, clothes them, spline, there's the open, acorn style and there's The other black ones, one other thing that people commonly might mess up on their order is that they don't completely understand that if it's between a chrome, wheel and a polish wheel. So this wheel is a fully cast wheel and has a chrome finish on it, which gives you this look, the shiny, you know, polished metal, look, but this is a chrome, whereas, like American force or especially forged those sports wheels, that's a forged block of aluminum, a Single piece and then that's polished and it's basically the raw finish on the outside. So it takes a lot more maintenance to clean a fully polished wheel. Then there's a chrome, wheel and they're a lot more expensive, because it's that single piece of aluminum, so the chrome wheels, like I said, easier to clean, easier to maintain because you can just wash them. Whereas a fully polished wheel is going to require polishing a true polish with a buffer and really getting in there with some elbow grease to keep them clean, and so another misconception is that you can just buy your big wheels and tires now and install the lift Kit later well, as you can see now, this is an extreme example, because this is a lower truck, but even if it was a stock type vehicle - and you want to go put this tire in here - you might be able to bolt it on. You might be able to set the truck gun on the lift, but I guarantee you won't be able to turn so. You can't go out and buy. You know 35, 37 and 38. It'S the big tires big wheels and then expect to put them on and just save up and get the lift kit later you're going to actually want to do that in the other order, if you're trying to separate things and buy one before the other install your Lift kit first because it'll make picking out your wheels and tires that much easier. So next a lot of questions we get revolve around spiked lug nut. So you can take a look at this wheel, you'll notice it has a cap which means you can't run spike. Lug nuts, the reason why they have a cover cap, because, on the back side, you see this is a dual drilled: 6 lug, meaning it fits both Ford and Chevy bolt patterns. Now, sometimes on the website, you might see a picture of one wheel that has exposed lug nuts and the other. That doesn't, even though it's the same wheel. So the reason why that banker walks in the middle of our videos is because he really just wants to be on TV yeah. The reason why that is is because a lot of 8 lug applications do have exposed caps. Will you have holes cut out or the cap is redesigned to fit around the hole, so you can run those spike lug nuts put on a covered cap? There'S no way to do it. Unless you want to cut out hole in that cat yourself - and I don't recommend that so another misconception is people think that they can install these wheels and tires by themselves. And while that is true in a lot of cases, some people just don't have the proper tools, it's very important when you're adding this much rolling mass to your vehicle, that you're torquing them to the proper spec and then reach working them later on. So if you don't have a torque wrench, it's not a good idea to take your impact and just run this thing to 12, okay, Doug! So, hopefully understanding these five mistakes that people commonly make will help you. So you don't make mistakes when you're ordering your wheels and tires from custom all sets com. That'S it peace, [, Music, ]! You

Hey guys, forgive them custom offsets custom offsets TV on the YouTube. We got banker working
hard here installing a lift kit on this truck at offsets garage. So we thought we should probably bring you another video called the five things you need to think about before you lift your truck, so these aren't necessarily requirements to do before you lift it, but you want to keep these in mind when you're looking to build your Truck so number one on the list, then this is banker's personal vehicle and it's like a 2010 or doesn't love or something like that. So it's getting up there, an age which means, if you go to install your lift kit, there's a good chance. You'Re gon na want to replace some front-end parts so like ball, joints or CV axle could be worn, sway bar end links all that stuff in the front needs to be taken care of. Before you put the lift kit in because you're just gon na run into problems further down the road now, if you have one of these there's a good chance, you won't need to replace anything. This is a brand new f-350 Super Duty, so everything in the front end is brand new. There'S no need to replace any components here. You can buy your lip kit, throw it on in so the second thing you're gon na, want to consider when lifting your truck and putting on bigger wheels and tires is you're, probably gon na need to recalibrate your speedometer. We use the speedometer calibrator from Hypertech here locally it offsets garage, so it doesn't necessarily mean when you plug this in, and you have thirty fives that you're gon na put in thirty-five a lot of times on the structural building. Now, because of the weight of the truck and the sidewall flex, it actually drops down to like a 33 and a quarter so just use your phone and check the GPS speed they're compared to the speed in the truck, and that's how you do that now. The third thing you may not think about when you're, actually lifting your truck, is how are you gon na get in there now when you're, a short guy like me, it's actually pretty tough, so you might want to think about getting some amp steps for your truck. It'S just gon na help you get on in there. You can lift right up, and then you go so here at custom offsets. We have a lot of garage doors. These ones are a little bit smaller. Those ones are a little bit bigger and a really common question we get asked is: how will I know if my truck is gon na fit inside my garage, so we obviously have the really tall garage doors. Don'T have to worry about that, but the thing is: if you put a six inch lift on your truck, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's just going to go up to six inches. You have to also take into consideration the height of the tires that you're putting on and that's gon na affect. If you can fit your vehicle in your garage or not. Now, as a common, like rule of thumb, a Chevy Silverado or like your f-150 with a six-inch lift and thirty five s is gon na just barely clear your 7-foot garage door. If you got an 8 foot garage door like most people, do then you're fine, otherwise you're gon na have to if you got any bigger than that, get like the 10 foot garage doors or if you really want to go all out, we got like 14 foot Garage doors you can get some of those, so then. Lastly, the fifth thing on our list, and now this one I got to take you for a ride to kind of show you what I'm talking about, but before we get in. Like I mentioned before. These answer steps come in really handy when you're short like me, so when you lift your truck or even in this situation, it's just a leveling kit, but we have giant chrome wheels on here with some big mud, terrains, you're, gon na notice, the power loss and You'Re gon na notice a decrease in fuel mileage, and that's just something you have to be prepared for before you lift your vehicle like this Hummer is now getting like eight miles to the gallon driving it Knights, our big white lifted 2500, getting on the highway. The other day it was getting two miles per gallon and I think that's only because that's as low as the computer would let it go. So what some people do to combat that is re, giving their truck, and we get a lot of questions on that too. And it's not necessarily something that's a requirement until you get above like 38, but it definitely helps if you're trying to get back. Some of that acceleration that you lost by lifting your truck and putting on big wheels and tires, and nowadays with vehicles that have like an 8 or a 10 speed transmission, something you notices on the highway. Your truck might be shifting down gears a lot more than it. You see if you come to a hill or you're trying to accelerate on the highway, just something to be aware of before you buy it, but things like tunes or rehearing or something you can do to fix that. So if you've been thinking about lifting your truck and you're kind of not sure where to get started, those are the five things that you want gon na want to consider before you ended up lifting it. If you want to get more information on anything that I talked about today, we basically have a video on everything, so you can just search our youtube channel. That'S all! For now, I'm out of here
