Helpful Products

Whether it is at home or the track, below is a list of useful products available at the Tire Rack.

Fender Lip Roller: LINK

This professional quality fender lip rolling tool is designed to maximize the wheel well clearance when upgrading to a larger Tire & Wheel Package or when installing fender flares. Can also be used to repair wheel area damage.

The rolling tool fits all four- and five-lug wheel hubs up to 120mm bolt circle with hubs up to 72.5mm. Includes dished washers and vehicle lug bolts. Forming arm adjusts from 14" to 22-3/4" to roll lips flat. Delrin® ball bearing system forms the fender without damaging the paint. Heavy steel powder coating. Limited one-year warranty.

Tire Rack recommends using a heat gun with the Fender Lip Rolling Tool to minimize the potential for paint damage during use.

Aluminum Service Jack: LINK

The Aluminum Service Jack from Tire Rack features a Quick Lift System with two-stage pump and dual return springs. Go from 3.5" ground height to a maximum height of 19.5" in 12 strokes or less, even under load. The jack's lightweight, aluminum design weighs only 50 lbs. for easy transport yet remains ideal for heavy-duty, 2-ton capacity use. Wide track casters and wheels allow for easy maneuverability while a rubber saddle pad and foam handle bumper protect the raised vehicle. A 50" handle is included.

Saddle Diameter: 4.75"
Chassis Width: 13"

Cordless Impact Wrench: LINK

Weighing only 5.9 lbs., the Cordless Impact Wrench provides power in a lightweight design. Wrench features a variable speed switch to provide the option of increasing and decreasing speed based on trigger pressure. Above the trigger switch is a selector that allows the wrench to work in a forward or reverse direction. And for those hard-to-see areas, a bright LED light illuminates when the switch is depressed.

To protect against overheating and ensure long lasting life, the Cordless Impact Wrench is equipped with a cooling fan motor.

Cordless Impact Wrench includes:

Carrying case

Note: The Cordless Impact Wrench is designed for removing wheel hardware only and should not be used to torque lug nut hardware. Proper installation requires that the wheel lug torque be set to the recommended specification for your vehicle. These torque specifications can be found in your vehicle’s owner’s manual, shop repair manual or obtained from your vehicle dealer.

The Cordless Impact Wrench is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for a period of one-year from the date of purchase.

Wall Mounted Tire Storage Rack: LINK

The Tire Storage Rack is a well-engineered solution to help organize the garage and keep extra tires or Tire & Wheel Packages out of the way. The flexible design allows room for today's performance-oriented Tire & Wheel Packages or can be adjusted to accommodate less aggressive tire widths.

Tire Totes: LINK

Seasonal Tire Totes are a tire carrying and storage system that takes the hassle out of changing from winter tires to summer tires. Their compact, clean styling makes them the perfect choice for the organized garage and for transporting race tires in the trunk or on the back seat of a car.

A heavy-duty shell with an easy-to-carry handle slips over the tire to protect clothing and a vehicle's interior from tire and brake residue. In their totes, tires stay neatly covered and stacked until the next season rolls around again.
