Return Policy


Product returns must be processed through an American Elite Wheels authorized dealer or distributor. All wheels must remain in their original packaging and remain unmounted in order to receive credit. If wheels are received and it is evident that they were installed on a tire or were not packaged properly, resulting in damage, credit will not be issued, and the product(s) will be scrapped.
Items marked Discontinued and/or Closeout are not eligible for returns or exchanges. No exemptions.
A Returned Merchandise Authorization (RMA) is required for any product sent back for a return. An RMA must be provided by an American Elite Wheels sales representative to an authorized dealer and must be processed within 30 days.
All returns are subject to inspection upon their arrival to our warehouse.
