The problems is exactly as you state Scott, the Vendors get screwed too, Savini makes there money they have a set amount they are going to make and leave it up to the vendor to get what they can, so there is not alot of play for the vendor.
I was lucky in a sense that after Randy's issue of the blame game of mounting I made the vendor mount and balance everything so all I had to do was install teh wheels. That way they could say the dumb redneck in Alabama didn't know what they were doing and tore up the wheels.
Funny thing is these are FORGED wheels supposed to be stronger than cast or poured, why is it easier to damage these wheels??????????
Makes you think, and for the money you pay for these wheels the need to be PERFECT, no FLAWS at ALL.
MUSTANG...Like Bringing a Hot Dog to a Steak Dinner....There is no comparison.
