FREE Wheels Giveaway!

The holiday season kicked off, which means three things - gifts, gifts, gifts. You may be already surfing the gift shops looking to fill up a pile of wishlists, someone may be doing the same for you. But what are the chances that you're getting what you really want these holidays?

Thinking about gift ideas for automotive junkies we thought that a set of custom wheels might probably be a good present. What d’ya think?



This winter we’re giving one lucky car guy the chance to win a gift that any cur guy would REALLY want for Xmas. We’re giving away a SET OF CUSTOM WHEELS worth up to $1,000. Plus, we’ll raffle off $100 CARiD Gift Certificates every week through January 9, 2012!

To throw your name in the hat, just complete the entry form at CARiD Holiday Giveaway. Santa asks more!

You do realize your company does not offer any wheel (or possibly anything else) with Lotus fitment (and that all the previous responses were purely sarcastic)?

Thanks for the tip. We can't carry all wheel dimensions for each model within our site. But you can phone us and order any wheel in any order you like. Giovanna wheels, Gianelle, Vossen and other 100+ brands can be adjusted to fit your Special Cars.

Feel free to ask! By the way our prices for GFG, Koko Kuture, Gianelle and Giovanna are the lowest for now! Let me know your concerns!

First of all you need a chart with wheel dimensions AND WEIGHT on your web site.
I doubt that anyone on LT will buy a rim without knowing its weight.
Your typical Mustang (or any other regular car) driver probably wouldn't even know why to ask the question about the weight...

If I die, my biggest fear is that my wife sells all my toys for the price I told her I bought them for...

Since none of the wheels fit, I'd sure love me some wheel and caliper covers on the website. Those are pure sex!

The contest is officially over and here’s a quick report FYI. One more lucky guy has joined the list of $100 CARiD Gift Certificate Winners - congratulations to Corey Morgenstern and his 2010 Dodge Challenger, which might get some new auto parts very soon.

If you’re one of the winners and have already used your gift certificate, share the pictures of your new parts in this thread!

OK, we bet you’re curious to know who has won the Grand Prize, a free set of wheels from carid.com. The luckiest person in the contest is Aquaria Miller. She was extremely happy to win the new rims for her 2000 Audi S4 and have chosen to go with TSW Nardo wheels shown below.



The wheels have already been shipped to Aquaria and we’re looking forward to getting a photo report from her once the new wheels are installed.

Even though there can only be one winner in a contest, we really wanted everyone benefit our Holiday Giveaway. That's why we have sent out each participant whose name was not on the winning ticket a $100 discount on custom wheels as a small consolation prize. So check your inbox and enjoy the discount!

Thanks everyone for participating and remember to join us on Facebook and add CARiD on Google+ because we have many more cool prizes to give away in the near future!

And can you really complain about someone trying their best?

Also most of us have more than one vehicle and if we want wheels for another car this was a good idea - ALSO anyone who IS about to purchase could maybe actually use that $100 off.

Just my thoughts. I appreciate the chance.

Thank you! This was our main purpose. Even if Lotus is not the best car we can serve for, you may have another vehicles or relatives and frieds with another vehicles and this forum is just a source of information.

Thanks anyway.
