Vehicle wheels / tyres search tool for PrestaShop


Vehicle wheels / tyres filter question

Hi, Basically, a user needs to be able to input their: - Vehicle Year - Vehicle Make - Vehicle Model - Vehicle Type - Product (Wheels, Tires) AND search for tires only - Width - Profile - Diameter Then, based on that data, it would determine what tires or wheels will fit that vehicle. This data is frequently updated as new vehicles are released in the market. So, we need an easy way to update the source data. Is this possible? Based on the user’s selection, it will determine the tire size or wheel sizes using the database. In some cases there may be multiple results, in which case it needs to present the user with the two options prior to conducting the product search. Then, it will query all the products loaded into prestashop to see which tires or wheels match that value. This, of course, means that when uploading products, we will need specific fields to enter this information so the plug-in knows what it is trying to match against. Keep in mind, it will only show results for either Tires OR Wheels. So, there are three scenarios: - User enters fields and then clicks “Search Tires” or “Search Wheels” - We have a hidden field that specifies to only search tires, so the user just clicks ‘search’ (this would be from the tires sections) - We have a hidden field that specifies to only search wheels, so the user just clicks ‘search’ (this would be from the wheels sections) Is this possible with one of your products?
