This article is about tires and rims. For other uses, see Wheel (disambiguation).

Wheels (Fin.png: Renkaat) are car parts that can initially be found in the attic of the mansion near Loppe. They are attached to the car with 4x13mm bolts each. Different kinds of tires and rims can be bought from Fleetari Repair Shop and the parts catalog respectively.

Tires can be serviced, replaced, or changed at any point. This is done by uninstalling the wheels from the Satsuma and placing them on Fleetari's counter (in other words, Fleetari will service the closest rims to the counter) , or by leaving the whole car on the driveway with the wheels installed. As with any other order from Fleetari's brochure, it will take some time for the new tires to be installed on the rims.

Note: Up to four wheels will be serviced at a time, and wheels inside the office are prioritized over wheels that are installed on the car.

A fifth spare stock wheel can be found at a wrecked Satsuma.

Wheels cannot currently be attached to the spare wheel compartment at the back of the car.

The car can only pass the inspection with the standard or Gommer Gobra tires; no other type of tire will work (including the beater tires, assuming they're over 50% wear). A set of GT rims can be found in a shed in the middle of a field. It is part of the GT trim.

Note: Make sure that you have tightened all the nuts, otherwise the wheel might fall off and cause damage to the vehicle or even death.

Rims[]

There are ten different kinds of rims available in the game; they can be colored with spray cans, or by Fleetari.
