Alloy Wheels

Think about buying alloy wheels if you do a lot of driving in the mountains or in stop-and-go traffic. Some alloy wheels are designed to encourage cool air flow over the brakes to prevent overheating. The alloy itself can help dissipate heat, too.

Plus-Size Your Rims

If you want to improve performance and add a sportier look, think about plus-sizing your rims. With a larger inner diameter, you'll find steering is more responsive and your car holds the road better. Purchasing rims that are one or two sizes larger than what you have means you'll have to buy new tires as well.

Keep The Weight Down

Look for rims that aren't too heavy for your vehicle. Big, steel rims on a small car can decrease handling, stability, and gas mileage.

RSSW, a division of Macpek Serving your needs for over 40 years

Macpek was founded in Quebec City in 1974 by Claude Pouliot. Inspired by the family tradition, his two sons; Jean-François, President, and Claude-André, Vice President, co-own the business in which they have been fully active since 1989.

"The privilege we had of working in every department of the company gave us the ability to precisely understand the needs of our customers, outside and inside the business'', the two brothers say.

Macpek is known to be both the most important, independent, heavy vehicle parts distributor in the Province of Quebec and the largest passenger car and light truck wheel distributor/designer in North America.

RSSW / The Perfect Match

To ensure the proper differentiation of its two networks, Macpek officially launched the RSSW brand in May 2015.

These marketing efforts offer the opportunity to actively promote the sales of alloy and steel wheels directly to end users. The new RSSW transactional website has the ability to redirect every customer's individual request to the nearest authorized RSSW dealer, which are sorted by territories. It’s an optimal and efficient way to maximize customer satisfaction and ultimately increase the sales of our RSSW partners.

With an inventory of more than 100,000 wheels, we are able to process all our orders, with a 98% fill rate. "At RSSW, we fulfill the needs of our customers year round,'' assures Yann Quimper, Program Manager at RSSW.

And by offering more than 528 different alloy and steel wheel models, we are able to perfectly match the preference and budget of every customer. In 2015 alone, RSSW will launch 130 new wheels. "Each year, we develop several new wheels to answer market changes and evolving customer needs,'' states Alain Doucet, Vice President and General Manager at RSSW. Along the way, over 2,000 fitment tests are performed annually to maintain an up-to-date and accurate application guide. Installation hardware kits are combined with every wheel to simplify sales and maximize customer service and satisfaction.

With its 14 branches and five distribution centers, the RSSW network reaches and deliver, within 24 hours, to most of the tire shops and car dealerships, located in every territory, across Canada. And to ensure and maintain such a short turnaround, a new distribution center was opened in Edmonton, Alberta, in August 2015.
