Ask Rim & Wheel Works!
Our June newsletter will be dedicated to
answering questions from our customers about
wheels, tires, wheel straightening,
reconditioning, welding, etc., plus a

you didn't use snow tires this winter, it's a
good time to check your tires for both tread
depth and irregular wear. Most tires require

the best tires for your car and driving style
and can order most tire brands for you at
BMW Car Club Tech Session Saturday June 9!
Our insurance company doesn't allow us to let
customers stay in the shop while we
straighten wheels - unless we're having a
tech session! Every year or so we host a
tech session for the local chapter of the BMW
Car Club of America, including discussions of
such issues as aftermarket wheels, wheel
cosmetics, tire pressure monitoring, and a
demonstration of our wheel straightening
If you own a BMW and haven't joined
the club, we're inviting you to come and
participate in the tech session and meet the
members. They're a great group of people.
If you don't own a BMW, you're still invited!
We'll be having door prizes and everyone in
attendance gets a coupon for a free listing
