You ain't going to believe what happened today while i was driving to the dealership for warranty on the glove box and to reset the TPMS sensors. My right rear tire flew off while driving 50 miles an hour, hardly any damage but back to my concerns with the wheels i purchased from D2Autosports, they better get this crap fixed immediately!

Wow. That brings back crazy memories. On my old 73' Firebird Formula i had swapped on some Mickey Thompson track masters for a night at the track. On the way home from the track i stopped at a light and stepped on it a bit and BAM. my rear end drops to the ground and on my drivers side i see my wheel go rolling past me. Anyways, in my case ZERO damage. Jacked her up, put the wheel back on. Had to steal a few lugs from other wheels and never had an issue afterward.

Hope you get everything sorted out. I'd be crazy mad.

That really sucks. I don't what what I would do if that happened to me, and right after you just got everything installed too. I guess it's a good thing you were going 50 and not 150....

yea, $3,600 for rims that are not correct is crazy... I only paid $2,800 for mine and I expected perfection before I would drive them out of the store.

Hey there- Congrats on COTW!

Quick question for you-

I read in ur description you have the square gfx tips, however they don't appear to be pictured. Did you go with them for cosmetic or functional reasons? And what's the placement depth (how far in/out or flush w the bezels )

Reason I ask is since I put the headers on the exhaust has been melting my diffuser (when tips were flush with the bezel ) and discoloring the paint (now that I've cut them 4" inside)

Just curious on how others handled this.

Thanks and Congrats again!

Thats because they were suppose to be installed yesterday when my right rear wheel flew off my car while driving.I think they are suppose to be 2" inside? Good question maybe someone else can chime in?

I have to say i'm blessed to have such little damage to my vehicle for a wheel flying off at 50 mph, also for my health to boot and not hitting anyone or my wheel hitting anyone!
