this post is dedicated to my friend, colleen, who recently learned of the rim/tire rental establishment “rent -n- roll” …and is still in shock.
rent-n-roll is a program that allows you to pay for the wheels/tires in weekly, bi-weekly or monthly payments with no credit hassles. the first location was opened in tampa, fl in october 2000. currently there are over 60 stores nationwide. the customer needs to bring in a valid drivers license, current pay stubs, utility bill, vehicle registration and your social security card to get started.
there are different purchase options: you can pay cash outright (without renting), the 90 day program, the 120 day program or make weekly/biweekly payments as listed:
- wheel only rentals are based on 52, 65, 78 or 104 weekly payments.
- tire only rentals are based on 26, 39, 52, or 78 weekly payments.
ownership is obtained after the determined number of weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly or monthly payments are made or early payout option exercised.
ask me what happens when you miss a payments….
they locate your vehicle, remove the tires and sit it on bricks. no, forreal. i’m serious. i asked the man myself at the little rock, ar location.
some of you will notice that i filed this entry under “no ma’am” and “why didn’t i think of that?” if you have to make payments on some rims, then you don’t need them. but, you know errbody and their mama is frequenting this place because they want rims that they can’t afford to pay for outright. i’m not mad at you rent -n- roll. get your hustle on.
Rent -N- Roll has locations in the following states: (the website is below the chart).
