If you work for Wheel Pros (formerly American Racing Equipment), you may not have to worry about bent rims or flat tires. The company distributes more than two dozen brands of high-performance wheels and tires for cars, trucks, and SUVs, including a full line of company-branded wheel products. In addition to one-piece and multi-piece wheels with contemporary styling, the company offers a selection of classic wheel styles reminiscent of hot-rod happy days for racecar and drag racing enthusiasts. It sells to customers in about 30 countries worldwide. Wheel Pros was formed when M&A firm Platinum Equity merged two subsidiaries -- American Racing Equipment and Wheel Pros -- in May 2008.
