A load rating refers to a maximum allowable weight that a given wheel has been tested and rated at. All wheels can be rated differently, for instance the wheels
on a passenger car will require a smaller load rating than the wheels on a heavier SUV. A vehicle manufacturer will give a standard GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating)
to each of its vehicles. This rating is the maximum allowable weight for a fully loaded vehicle which includes passengers and extra equipment. At that point each of
the wheels is tested and rated according to the GVWR of all the vehicles they were meant to be mounted on.
The offset is a vital technical aspect of your wheel and your car. To better explain this, Black Rhino has put together a brief 101 video on offsets.
You can also go to our wheel technology page to learn more about offsets.
The handling can be improved by running larger wheels on your Truck. Generally larger Truck wheels mean that you will run a lower profile tire and usually a wider tire.
The low profile tire often performs better when cornering and braking, as tire roll is greatly reduced.
Extremely large wheels are heavier and can increase braking distances. However, Black Rhino will always endeavor to keep the wheels as light as possible without compromising
the strength of the wheel.
With regular care and regular road conditions, Black Rhino offers a one year finish warranty on its wheels with chrome and painted finishes. Black Rhino provides a
lifetime structural warranty for wheels it manufactures that are structurally unsound because of a manufacturing defect caused by Black Rhino that makes the wheel unfit
for its ordinary purpose. Damage or issues with wheels manufactured by Black Rhino that are not caused by, or the result of, a manufacturing defect by Black Rhino are
not covered under the warranty. Additionally, the following are expressly excluded from the warranty:
Black Rhino does not offer a "road hazard warranty," so any damage or issue with a wheel caused by the wheel colliding with a pothole or any other object or debris
will not be covered by the warranty;
Wheels that have been used in racing are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness; and
Wheels mounted on vehicles with a load rating in excess of the load rating of the wheel are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness.
Wheels that have been modified, repainted, or powder coated.
