FAQ / POLICY
WHAT IS YOUR RETURN POLICY?
Any returns or cancellations, without the tires, mounted on the rim will likely carry a 25% restocking fee. Once wheels/tires have been mounted on the vehicle we are not able to accept a return. If you have any concerns about fitment, simply share those concerns via email, before you place your order, and our experts will work with you to get a perfect fit! Due to the fact we move quickly, it’s important to notify us immediately if you have concerns.
You are responsible for test-fitting wheels before having tires mounted. Once tires have been mounted, we are unable to take them back even if there is a fitment problem. For package purchases, you are responsible for test fitting before driving on the wheels. Tires with mileage on them cannot be returned.
All suspension/accessory items being returned that are not warranty-related CANNOT have been installed or attempted to be installed. If we receive a return that shows signs of installation we will not be able to accept the item and will have to return it to the sender with no credit being issued.
Always contact us with any issues or return questions, we will always work with a customer, however, understand that most of our items are very expensive to ship so we must recover these costs unless the mistake is ours. Contact us for wheel/tire returns for all others.
All refunded items must be approved prior to being returned. Please contact us for return authorization for wheels and tires. Refunds must be requested within 30 days of the original receipt of merchandise. Once approved, all items must be returned within 14 days. Money will be refunded in the same manner in which the original payment was made. Once the product is returned, please allow 14 days for receipt of funds.
Fitment is the responsibility of the Customer, don’t know? PLEASE ask.
You will see many of our customers go beyond the “conservative” fitment offered by manufacturers. They are doing this by making modifications and trimming plastic and sometimes metal to make the wheel/tire combo fit.
For this reason, we fill the order as you have placed it with the assumption you will make the appropriate modifications to fit the wheel/tire combo.
When you provide the correct make, model (and version if applicable), and year information about the vehicle we do verify bolt pattern, TPMS sensors and lug nuts (these items we guarantee fitment).
If you have questions or do not know the proper fitment on lifted, leveled, or even stock applications – complete our quote fitment form so that we may make our best recommendation for what should work. In some cases, minor trimming will be needed to accommodate oversized tires or wide/high negative offset wheels. Additionally, we cannot guarantee fitment on custom drilled wheels, but should the manufacturer make a mistake – we’ll help broker a solution. Some vehicles or applications may not apply. In those cases, we’ll tell you before you purchase.
DO YOU OFFER FINANCING?
Yes, we do, by partnering with Acima and Snap. They are able to provide a credit decision within seconds and, if approved, will provide you with all the details you’ll need to decide if the loan is right for you. Once you accept the loan we’ll be able to get to work processing your order. Once approved we get your wheels and or tires headed your way, there is no delay related to financing!
ARE YOU SELLING SECOND-RUN OR BLEMISHED WHEELS?
No. All wheels are brand new, first run, and manufactured warrantied.
CAN I TRADE MY OLD WHEELS FOR A CREDIT TOWARD NEW WHEELS?
Nope. We only deal with new wheels. Sorry.
DO YOU SELL TIRES TOO?
Yes. We have access to discounted pricing on a number of tires brands. We also offer free mounting and balancing so that your wheel & tire package will be ready to go when it arrives. Simply find the wheels you like on our website and click “ADD TIRES” to build a package and save even MORE. You also can choose to buy just tires through our online store.
Down South Custom Wheels uploads data feeds from several suppliers that will change the price of products as they change. Periodically, there will be pricing errors due to system and/or human error.

TIRE RECALL INFORMATION
At DOWN SOUTH CUSTOM WHEELS, the safety of the driving public and our customers is our top priority. Tire recalls are rare events, but when they do become necessary, our goal is to recover every single recalled tire. If you believe that your tires are to be included in a recall, two online databases are available to allow you to search for U.S. tire recall information.
To search by tire identification number (TIN) information, click here to use the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) database. This database helps consumers identify tires manufactured by the ten USTMA members that may have been subject to a recall since 2000.
To search by tire brand and model, click here to use the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) database. This database allows consumers to find information about tire recalls from the past 15 years.
