Off Road Rim Financing LLC. matches customers with banks willing to finance tires, according to the company website. It has similar qualifying terms to other tire rental companies, but some of its financing options are through loans. Upon approval, the company ships tires mounted on rims to the customer. Customers are responsible for testing the tires to ensure that they fit without any obstructions, and the company only accepts returns in limited cases.

Wheel and Tire Superstores offers three no-credit-check options for buyers, according to its SuperBuyTires.com website. Once the customer receives financing approval from the lender, he calls to complete his order.

As of 2015, weekly payments range from $3 to $86, depending on the amount the company finances.
