Seeing as how I'm GM at one of the local RnR's I can tell you first hand.....I don't know about in Kentucky but here in AR no one can touch my cash out the door prices....now you've got to remember that the bulk of my business is in the form of "rent-to-own" which is something entirely different than a cash sale.....just the same as if you were doing furniture.
Our business caters to those that either can't go buy cash or don't want to buy cash. The averge every day person don't have a couple of thousand to just drop on a nice set of wheels and tires, but they want it anyway and that's who we cater too. You can come to me with $100 bucks in most cases and ride out on a new set of wheels and tires with a payment as low as $59.00 bucks a week depending on what wheel, tire, and size you choose. With that you get full insurance on your wheels and tires, meaning if you have a blowout I'll replace that tire at no cost to you so long as you are on the rental program, if you have a flat I'll repair the flat if it can be if not I'll simply replace it with a new tire, all at no cost to you......if you hit a pothole and damage a wheel I'll replace it all at no cost to you......Our rental program do have it's benefits compared to paying cash, yes it will cost you a fraction more but you still get to pay it out over a term and still get a 120 day same as cash option as well......
No one in the wheel business can even come close to what we offer. Can you buy a set of wheels and tires off the internet cheaper? Yes you can.....can you be sure of what you are going to get from the net ....No! As far as the net goes, if you are going to spend online then at least buy from Tire Rack.com they are good people that knows alot about wheels and tires, and your local Rent-n-Roll is an authorized TireRack.com install center....
If you don't have all the cash up front or even if you do have it, stop into that RnR and let them show you what they can do for you.......and remember at RnR the installation, rotate and balance,lugs and locks are always FREE!!!!!!! :D :D :D
P.S. to answer your question about if we buy or trade wheels......each store is different because most are franchised with different owners, so I can't speak for the ones in your area, but as far as I know none of them do, I know that we don't......now if you are a current customer on rent with us, after six months we will let you trade your current set in and upgrade to a different preleased set and you will get half of the time that paid in on your current set applied to your upgraded set..........

so what if like me..i get them mounted on my lifted truck, and go out beating the hell out of them, they get all scratched up and i hit a fallen tree or something and bend the rim, youll replace it free?

what if someone who has something against me keys the rims up? what if i go to the carwash and the kid with the chrome wheel acid cleaner leaves it on too long and etches the chrome perminantly? replaced no cost to me?

subscription to thread put in.

i've got vested interest in this. hehe


i happen to know the owner(s) of the st.louis RnR and it's not all berries and cream. while alot of what has been said about RTO is true, there are some limits. and one being cash prices. on a used set, you bet yoru *** RTO will be cheaper, but new? more often then not, retail chains will kill RTO. even with employee pricing, i know of a place that beats RnR cash prices. by alot.



but, it does have some advantages.




wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ee :peace:

O.K. so you say that 501 beat my price by a $100 bucks huh.....how much extra did they charge you for mounting and balancing, how much did they charge you for valve stems and locks?????? How many locks did they put on 4 maybe.....and how much did you pay for them......
When we give you a price that's THE PRICE OUT THE DOOR.....NO HIDDEN FEES....can any of the rest say that.....I don't think so.....when we do an install we use ALL LOCKS and no lugs not 1 lock and on each wheel and lugs like everyone else and we don't charge for the locks, mounting, balancing or the valve stems.....
Don't get me wrong though, just like any business I'm in it to make a profit and I sure as hell ain't gonna give you my rock bottom price fresh out the gate and neither is anyone else unless "they your boys" and if someone brings me a legit price quote from a competiter on their letterhead paperwork or writeup then we will price match as well.......and no one out there will advertise a price lower than what we will and do advertise at....so to respond to your statement, when truely comparing apples to apples....no we won't be beat on price.......:D :D :D

Let try and use a little common sense here...o.k. Are we going to cover flat out neglect, willful destruction or vandalizism....I don't think so! Just like any thing in life there are limits and guidelines all of which can be clearly explained by any RnR store employee if you simply stop by one...:D :D :D

My friend got some wheels from the one in Louisville. As far as I can tell they seemed alright until he let his payments fall behind. He went off to Basic for National Guard and his mom forgot to do the payments or something, so they came and repo'd the wheels so his truck has been sitting on blocks in his driveway since then and he hasn't even been back home yet :rolleyes:

i stopped by rent and roll and those dudes were ****ing STUPID as ****. i was 17 at the time. I told them i'd have to talk to my parents and they were all like "well if the truck is in your name you don't even have to talk to your parents". scandalous ****s if you ask me, no way in hell i was gonna pay 5K to put wheels on a ****ing 93 Nissan pickup... ****ing retards there IMO.

i know. first thing i said is something not too flashy, as i am not rich and refuse to sign away a years worth paychecks for **** wheels (which the ones i already had work JUST as good) but they completely blew that idea out of the water... i was thinking my truck is old and beat up i just want something other than the factory steelies... lol.

Jacked in the driveway. afaik there was nothing court-like involved. Something I did forget to mention is that when he got home from getting the wheels installed in the first place when he first bought them, only 3 of his original wheels were in his trunk. He called back up there and they told him they didn't have it. I guess he should have looked before he left, but he didn't and they weren't interested in helping him figure out what happened.

I went to RNR in louisville off Indian Trail and I walked right back out. I had cash in my pocket for some rims and the guys in there were jerkin me all around. No one knew if I needed an offset and than when I found the rims I wanted they told me they couldnt get them is 22 only 24. I finally picked out another set and I ended up leavin and got the same set for $200 cheaper OTD wit locks and lugs, mounted and balanced than the rims themselves were at RNR.

I used to work for them for a while in Clearwater, FL.

At one of the highest volume sales stores... We actually did more high end installs then buckets.

I actually will ONLY recommend them as far as that's concerned. Can't speak for EVERY RnR, but the one off US19 in Clearwater, FL is on point.

There prices are fair, and some of the deals are excellent. Service is solid, with no exceptions. They actually just got done stretching new 245/35's on my 9.5's without a problem in the world.

As far as the repo situation is concerned. We always left our repo's on steelies to insure that the people knew that RnR had come to get their wheels back, and no one else had stolen them.

The insurance is fair and balanced, no they won't cover you if you bend a wheel or crush a lip... but if it's manufactures defect (chrome chips...etc) it's handled.

All in all, I recommend them.

thats funny, jackin' rims in the night if you miss a payment.

What if you forgot to make a payment and then hear a noise outside early morning or better yet your alarm goes off and you see a few guys taking the wheels off. What is gonna stop you from kick the tard out of them or shooting them as you thought they were trying to steal your car or car audio?

It wouldn't happen to me as I don't want fancy rims right now too much hassle

good point. if i came out and saw that i wouldnt be thinking about whether or not i paid my rim bill this month (:hilariou:). i'd be proceeding to whoop ***.

i wonder how many times this type of confrontation has happened since RnR started...
