What is a wheel?
Wheels can be called many things like rims or dubs. And while they are a very simple auto part, below are some terms that can help make the best purchase decisions for your vehicle.
- Wheel: round cast metal which is attached to a vehicle with spokes or a solid disc that can rotate on a shaft or axle
- Tire: a rubber covering placed around a wheel to form a flexible contact with the road
- Hub: the central part of a car wheel through which the shaft or axle passes
- Hubcap: cap that fits over the hub of a wheel
- Lug or Wheel Nut: a fastener used to secure a wheel on a vehicle.
What am I buying when I purchase a used wheel on PartCycle?
Generally, a wheel on PartCycle consists of the single component as described above: round cast metal which is attached to a vehicle with spokes or a solid disc. Sellers do not typically include any other components like the hubcap or tire unless they are physically attached or integrated into the wheel.
Wheels sold on PartCycle typically do not include: Hub, hubcap, tire, lug/wheel nuts or any brake parts
Are wheels sold on PartCycle a direct replacement for my existing wheel?
Yes. Wheels sold on PartCycle are the exact same as the wheel that comes with your vehicle from the manufacturer. They are used Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts and typically have no issues mounting directly to your vehicle.
Do the wheels you sell on PartCycle have any damage or rust?
While unlikely, it is possible for wheels to have slight dust or in some cases minimal surface rust on them. All wheels sold on the Marketplace will have a clear and descriptive quality rating: "Excellent", "Like New" and above ratings are free from any major damage or rust. And most parts rated "Good" or "Fair" are also free from any damage.
In the rare case your wheel does have some dust or light surface rust, this should not affect the wheel's performance and should be clearly stated in the part description. If your wheel arrives damaged or not the quality you expected, you are covered by our No Hassle 30-Day Return Policy.
What if my wheel arrives with damage, rust or can't be mounted, balanced, or aligned properly?
If you have any concerns or problems with your purchase, you are covered by our No Hassle 30-Day Return Policy. We care about our customers and work hard to make sure you're back on the road as quickly as possible.
