rimlist.com was first registered as a domain in 2009. At the time, craigslist was one of the dominant "internet local" marketplaces and RIMLIST sought to be the same type of destination for aftermarket wheel enthusiasts. To date, RIMLIST has been written in four programming languages, re-written eight times, and in 2022 has now finally seen the light of day without being taken down after a week!
Reimagined as a source for information and fitment tools, RIMLIST is on a mission to be the best site on the internet for aftermarket wheel fitment, aftermarket wheel history, and eventually, the best place to purchase aftermarket wheels. The journey is already over a decade old, but RIMLIST is just getting started.
