Below is the grading scale used when we purchase wheels. No one likes surprises and so you may wish to grade your wheels and let us know. Also keep in mind that the first thing we do when we inspect a wheel is to make sure that it is straight. You may want to ask a professional at a tire shop to inspect your wheels on a wheel balancer. At a minimum, and we strongly recommend this, you can roll the wheel across your garage floor and look at the lips (sided of the wheel to see any visible hops as it rolls. It would be easy to miss some bad wheels using this method, but it is better than no inspection at all. In addition, it is very important that the bead area of the wheel (Area where tire seals against wheel) is not damaged. This surface needs to be inspected after the tire has been dismounted from the wheel to inure that it is a smooth surface. Even the least bit of pitting or peeling on the bead / mounting surface of your wheel can cause it to be of no value.

A+ NEW Brand new. Never mounted. No flaws on front or back of wheel.
A LIKE NEW Looks brand new but has been mounted. No flaws on face of wheel. What you would expect if you bought a new car from the dealer. May have some brake dust on the back or mounting residue on rim flange.
A- VERY GOOD Looks new from a 10' (ten foot) distance. Minor scratch on lip at worst such as a barely noticeable wheel weight mark. Typical new take-off.
B+ VERY GOOD Looks new from a 10' (ten foot) distance. A few very minor scratches. Imperfections on the center area and or lip area.
