What is Lease-To-Own? 

For many people, coming up with large sums of money to purchase a product can be difficult. However, for others, credit issues may hinder them from getting what they need. In these instances, leasing to own may be the best option. When leasing to own wheels and tires, renters pay a certain amount to use the product. Payments can be set up weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. At any time, the renter has the option to buy the product. Yet, just as important, at any time, the renter has the option to return the product. The renter is under no obligation and can return their lease-to-own wheels at any time.

Do I have to Lease-To-Own to do business with RimTyme?  

We encourage you to take advantage of our everyday low cash prices. You are under no obligation to lease-to-own. It is an option that may or may not suit your needs. If you do rent-to-own, we encourage you to pay off your account with payment options to suit your budget. The decision is up to you.

We carry 18, 20, 22, 24, and 26-inch rims on all of our showroom floors. Anything over 26 inches would be a special order. We don’t lease-to-own rims smaller than 18 inches. We can get rims smaller than 18 inches, but it would be a special order and would need to be paid in full at the time of the order.

For the general public, we recommend you Google "Wheel Repair" in the city where you reside for all your available options.

Rimtyme - Our Rim and Tire pros will take care of you!

Do you offer FREE installation? 

At RimTyme, we offer FREE installation, FREE rotation and balance, and FREE locks and lugs. We provide this on ALL of our wheel and tire installations, no matter if it’s a cash sale or a lease-to-own agreement. If you go to a traditional rim shop and pay in full for your product, you are going to pay for your installation. We don’t do that here at RimTyme. So pay-in-full today or lease-to-own. Your install is FREE!!

Do you offer FREE rotation and balance on the products you sell? 

Yes, to extend the useful life of your tires, it's recommended you have this done every other oil change or every 6,000 miles. At RimTyme, we offer FREE rotation and balance for the life of our product.

Do you offer FREE tire repair on the products you sell? 

If you need tire repair on tires you purchased from us, and it’s repairable, we’ll repair it for FREE! If it’s not repairable, we will pass the manufacturer’s warranty on to you for replacement, which is just another benefit of doing business with RimTyme.

What are my payment options at RimTyme? 

We have many different payment options to choose from. Rent a wheel and tire package for low weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly rates and roll out today. Or if you don’t want to lease-to-own and you want to pay in full today, we have the lowest cash prices in the industry. Starting January 1, 2018, customers who pay in full the day of their installation receive an instant 20% off. Or, maybe you fall in the middle and would like to take advantage of our 120 Day Cash Price option. You can even pay on your account by texting in your payment or pay online from the comfort of your own home!

Do you offer any discounts for customers who aren't interested in leasing to own? 

Yes, we do. Pay for your product in full and receive an instant 20% off savings.

How much money do I need to get started? 

You only need your first week’s rental payment for any in-stock merchandise to get started! On average, that falls between $35 and $70/wk for sizes 18" to 22".

What can I expect my weekly rental payments to be? 

The weekly rental rates for Rim AND Tire* packages, in most cases, (depending on store availability) are as follows:
18" $35 to $45/wk
20" $45 to $60/wk
22" $55 to $70/wk
24" $65 to $85/wk

26" 75 to $100/wk

* If you don't get both rims and tires and you need one or the other, you can expect those weekly amounts to be approximately half.

What are the benefits of leasing to own? 

For many customers, having the freedom to swap out their wheels is essential. Renters can switch out their wheels, if they're unhappy with their selection, within the first few weeks of their agreement. Renters are also able to Trade-In or Trade-Up their RIMS at any time and will receive 25% of the rent they paid into their previous wheel and tire package towards their next package. (Rims must be in great shape, no bends or damage, with all center caps and screws.) Renting to own can also be advantageous for customers who do not immediately have the funds available to pay the cash price today. By renting, they are still able to use the product today, even though they are not able to pay in full today, and with very little money out of pocket. In essence, you can try it before you buy it.

How is RimTyme different from other wheel and tire stores? We can say with confidence; we have some of the most competitive prices in town. To prove it, we will meet or beat any rental competitors' advertised price on the same product by 10%. We also just recently rolled out our new 20% instant savings discount for customers who want to pay in full versus renting to own. If you decide renting-to-own is better for your budget, you pick the payment plan that works for you. You, the customer, decide what works for your budget. We give you the tools necessary to succeed. We even show you the math to be successful. The decisions are left up to you.

Buy With Confidence at RimTyme

What is your "Buy with Confidence" guarantee? 

At most wheel and tire stores, once the product is mounted to the tires – you own it, and there are no returns or exchanges. At RimTyme, we want you to LOVE your new wheels, and if you don’t, you can return them within seven days for a refund. Returned wheels must be in excellent condition with no signs of wear and tear. A full refund will be issued minus a 15% restocking fee. Any special order and/or processing fees involved are non-refundable. After seven days from receipt, all-cash sales are final. Offer not valid on Manager's Special and Deep Discounted wheelsets.

What if I find the same product advertised with another rental company for less? 

Bring us a copy of your current rental agreement with one of our rental competitors, and we’ll beat their weekly price by 10% on the same merchandise, plus reduce your agreement by two months!

How do lease-to-own payments differ from credit payments? 

Lease-to-own payments differ from credit payments because you don’t incur any debt in lease-to-own. There’s no obligation to make the next payment. You can return the product at any time and for any reason without penalty. With credit, you have to be approved to get a credit loan. When you purchase an item with credit, you’re legally obligated to make your payments until your account is paid in full. In lease-to-own transactions, you are NOT legally bound to own the product. The whole point of lease-to-own is the flexibility of not having to own the product if you don’t want to. You lease with an OPTION to own, not an obligation. No credit is extended in lease-to-own, removing legal liability if you wish to return the product. What IS similar to lease-to-own payments and credit payments is the faster you pay off your product, the lower your final cost will be. With both credit and lease-to-own payments, you can pay off your account balance at any time during the transaction and save money off your total balance.

Do I have to pass a credit check to qualify for lease-to-own

There are no credit checks at RimTyme. No credit, bad credit, it doesn’t matter. How do we let BRAND NEW rims and tires go out the door with very little money down, and NOT run credit checks? It’s because you can return your lease-to-own wheels and tires at any time. You’re never locked into a contract! We’ll clean the wheels and put them back on our floor, then pass that savings on to someone else. We have a constantly changing inventory of wheels to choose from.

You must live within 50 miles to qualify for our lease-to-own program. There is no limit on mileage for cash sales or our lay-a-way program.

If you’re unhappy for any reason in the first few weeks of your rental agreement, you can exchange your lease-to-own wheels!

How does your Trade-In Program work?

Do you offer a Lay-A-Way? Why would someone want Lay-A-Way? 

We do offer a Lay-A-Way program. We give you 90 days to pay the Cash Today Price when you decide to Lay-A-Way. This is an excellent option for customers who live more than 50 miles away from one of our locations. In this scenario, you can call in your payment.

How does your wheel visualizer work? 

Seeing which style rims you like best for your ride is simple. Pick your car or truck from the drop-down menu of choices. Change the color on your vehicle to match your own. Start slapping on different style wheels. Submit a quote request for your favorites, and someone will get back to you with pricing. It is, however, always best to visit one of our locations in person. We might have some of your favorites already on our floor. If not, and they're available from the vendor, we can get them for you. Check-out our visualizer here.

How can I get the most out of your Gallery? 

We broke our Gallery into categories to make searching simple. Do you want only to see 24 inch wheel images? Select 24" from the Wheel Size category. Do you have a red vehicle and want to know what other people with red vehicles picked out? Select the color red from the Vehicle Color category. Or maybe you have a Dodge Challenger, and that's all you want to see. It's easy! Select a Dodge Challenger from the Vehicle/Make/Model category. For best viewing, it's best only to choose two categories at a time. The possibilities are endless.

How is your Gallery different from your competitor's Gallery? 

While our competitors fill their gallery with slick, professionally taken images from various wheel vendors, we only show real customer photos. If you see a picture in our gallery, you know it was taken after we completed an install on a real customer's ride. Our gallery shows thousands of examples of what YOUR ride could look like when you choose RimTyme! Also, if you see something you like in our customer gallery, we will probably have it in stock, or we can get it within a few days. As items become unavailable, we remove them from our gallery.

If I search for a particular wheel brand in your GALLERY and it's not there, does it mean you don't carry them or can't get them? 

Our gallery, though quite extensive and growing every week, only scratches the surface of our installations done each day. The GALLERY is there to inspire you with great ideas. Every picture you see is an installation from one of our Rimtyme locations. Unfortunately, we can't upload every install. If you have a particular wheel brand you're interested in, please call your local RimTyme store for availability and pricing.

Do you charge me to transfer my TPMS sensors? 

There is no charge to swap your sensors. We will move your current TPMS sensors into your next set of wheels.

Do you carry Off-Road wheels and tires? 

RimTyme Custom Wheels now carries a large selection of off-road wheels and tires for your truck or jeep. Come in for our in-store selection or custom order for a specific look. Choose from Hardcore, Ballistic, Remington, Fuel, Hunter, Sik, MKW, American Force, and more. 20-inch Off-Road Wheel & Tire Packages start at just $59.99/wk!

Do you carry colored wheels?   

Often we do have colored wheels on our floor. However, we would need to place a custom order for an exact color match.

Do you have discounted sets on your floor? 

If you're looking for a good deal on pre-leased wheels, check out our Deep Discounts and Manager’s Specials. Every month we add inventory to the list. You are letting someone else pay the rent on your wheels. You get to come in and finish off the agreement for a reduced term. Some discounted sets are BRAND NEW! They’ve just been sitting on the floor for too long. Now they must go!

18" Manager's Specials and Deep Discounts = $35/wk

22" Manager’s Specials and Deep Discounts = $55/wk

26" Manager's Specials and Deep Discount = $75/wk

Do you have used tires? If so, how much are they?  

The answer is yes. We do have used tires as well as new tires, but maybe you don’t need used tires. Perhaps you can afford BRAND NEW tires, and you don’t even realize it. You can lease-to-own a set of BRAND NEW tires starting at $20 per week, depending on the size. If you have a problem with your lease-to-own tires, we will repair them for free or pass the manufacturer’s warranty on to you for replacement.

How long will you hold my factory tires and rims before you dispose of them? 

We’ll hold your factory tires and rims for no more than three days. After three days, your factories will be disposed of to make room in our bays. You MUST pick them up within three days!

If I lease-to-own rims and tires from RimTyme, why should I keep my factories?

Ownership of RimTyme’s product belongs 100% to RimTyme until you make your final payment. For this reason, it’s wise to keep your factories. If you decide to return our product, you’ll need your factories put back on your vehicle.
