PELHAM— The truck and Jeep accessory experts at 4 Wheel Parts have opened up shop in Pelham and are hosting a grand opening ceremony Oct. 10. The store supplies everything for the off-road market, including tires and wheels, lift kits, suspensions, drivetrains and more.

In addition to supplying off-road aftermarket parts, 4 Wheel Parts, located at 2367 Pelham Parkway, also provides cosmetic work. Grills, side steps, bumpers and more can all be purchased, and the store also has a brand new, state-of-the-art body shop.

Store manager John Tague said there are several aspects to the business, and the online store drives a lot of the retail and wholesale sales.

“(Pelham) is a huge market for where our retail and wholesale is going,” Tague said. “We decided we’d give the customers a little bit of another option and have a store for them here. People who are already buying from us have a storefront they can come into, meet the guys and get a little bit of face-to-face expertise.”

After about a month of construction and remodeling the building, 4 Wheel Parts opened Sept. 28, and Tague said they’ve already had many visitors and a lot of business. Many members of local off-road groups came in, expressing excitement for the business.

“Everywhere we go, people are seeing the trucks (and they’re) happy to have us here,” Tague said. “People seem to be really excited that 4 Wheel Parts has come to Pelham.”

4 Wheel Parts is hosting its grand opening Oct. 10. Tague said they will have a bounce house and they are inviting several local off-roads clubs. There will be multiple sales and deals going on that day as well, including labor discounts, specials on tires and wheels and lift kit packages for Jeeps.

“We can’t wait,” Tague said. “The feedback and everything we’ve been getting from the community and the support we’ve been getting just really drives and makes us happy to be here.”
