CHANGING THE WHEEL-BUYING GAME
One of the toughest decisions when building a car is, without a doubt, making your wheel choice. While we have a greater selection to choose from than ever before, at even better price points, working your way through the hundreds of styles, available in confusing numbers of finishes, PCDs, offsets, and disc clearances, can be a real head-scratcher. So, if you need help sussing out the right set of shoes to fit to your car, DTM’s online fitment guide has you covered. It boasts more than 4000 fitments, made up of 53 vehicle makes and hundreds of sub-models under each make, which have been manually loaded by DTM’s marketing manager, Brendon Tordoff.
“We knew that the fitment guide was a big task when we started it a couple of years ago. Manually loading the data against each make and model is the only way to ensure it is correct,” he said.
“It’s proven to be a solid engine that continues to be added to daily as a result of fitment enquiries from retailers and consumers. [We] have to find all the fitment information of that vehicle if it’s not already loaded, so may as well add it to the guide; that way it’s there for everyone. The fitment guide stops all that confusion. People don’t have to worry whether a certain wheel or tyre will fit a particular car. [The guide] answers a lot of questions straightaway.”
