FAQ

  • What wheel sizes are offered by Status Custom custom wheels?

    We offer Custom wheel fitments in sizes 22, 24 and 26 inch styles.
  • 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, Status 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 Custom. Generally larger Custom 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, Status will always endeavor to keep the wheels as light as possible without compromising the strength of the wheel.

  • What is the warranty on Status Wheels?

    With regular care and regular road conditions, Status offers a two year finish warranty on its wheels with chrome and painted finishes. Status provides a five year structural warranty for wheels it manufactures that are structurally unsound because of a manufacturing defect caused by Status that makes the wheel unfit for its ordinary purpose. Damage or issues with wheels manufactured by Status that are not caused by, or the result of, a manufacturing defect by Status are not covered under the warranty. Additionally, the following are expressly excluded from the warranty:
    • Status 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 STATUS 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 Status salesperson. Wheels sent to Status 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 STATUS must send the wheel by freight prepaid, as freight costs, shipping costs and any consequential damages are not covered by the warranty, to Status headquarters in Brea, California for inspection by Status. The invoice of the original purchase must be included with the wheel so Status 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 Status as Status does not communicate, correspond or deal in any way with the customers of Status's distributors. A wheel submitted to Status by a customer of the distributor will be returned.

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