FAQ

  • What wheel sizes are offered by Level 8 custom wheels?

    We offer Truck wheel fitments in sizes 15x7, 15x8, 16x8, 17x8, 18x9. 20x9, in different styles and finishes.
  • What is a load rating?

    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.
  • What is an offset and why does it matter what offset I use?

    The offset is a vital technical aspect of your wheel and your car. To better explain this, Level 8 has put together a brief 101 video on offsets.
  • How do larger wheels affect the handling of my vehicle?

    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, Level 8 will always endeavor to keep the wheels as light as possible without compromising the strength of the wheel.

  • What is the warranty on Level 8 Wheels?

    With regular care and regular road conditions, Level 8 offers a two year finish warranty on its wheels with chrome and painted finishes. Level 8 provides a five year structural warranty for wheels it manufactures that are structurally unsound because of a manufacturing defect caused by Level 8 that makes the wheel unfit for its ordinary purpose. Damage or issues with wheels manufactured by TUFF that are not caused by, or the result of, a manufacturing defect by Level 8 are not covered under the warranty. Additionally, the following are expressly excluded from the warranty:
    • Level 8 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.



    THE WARRANTY ONLY APPLIES TO THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER OF A WHEEL AND THE WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO THE ACTUAL AMOUNT LEVEL 8 WAS PAID FOR THE WHEEL.

    To submit a wheel for determination of coverage, a distributor must first obtain a Returned Goods Authorization number from an authorized Level 8 salesperson. Wheels sent to Level 8 without first obtaining a Returned Goods Authorization number will be refused and returned to sender. After obtaining the Returned Good Authorization number, THE DISTRIBUTOR WHO PURCHASED THE WHEEL FROM LEVEL 8 must send the wheel by freight prepaid, as freight costs, shipping costs and any consequential damages are not covered by the warranty, to LEvel 8 headquarters in Brea, California for inspection by LEVEL 8. The invoice of the original purchase must be included with the wheel so LEVEL 8 can verify the wheel is being submitted for coverage under the warranty by the original purchaser. A customer of a distributor cannot directly send a wheel for inspection to LEVEL 8 as LEVEL 8 does not communicate, correspond or deal in any way with the customers of Level 8's distributors. A wheel submitted to EVEL 8 by a customer of the distributor will be returned.

    After receiving a wheel submitted by a distributor for inspection, LEVEL 8 will inspect the wheel and notify the distributor if the wheel is covered by the warranty. If LEVEL 8 determines the wheel is covered by the warranty, LEVEL 8 will issue a credit note to the distributor for the amount the distributor paid LEVEL 8 for the wheel.
