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!

So i got my Fesler Dual Gauge pod from Fed-Ex today and it was smooth on the bottom on textured on the top, i called them and told them i was not happy now i had to sand it down and fill in 3 pock marks in the plastic, so the lady gave me %50 credit and said she is sending a T-Shirt in the mail. I am just so discouraged with everything going on lately, don't know who to trust on quality?

Also D2Autosports said Cordon is making the correct wheels with the correct offset and will send them to me directly and i will send them the wrong ones back, should take 7 to 10 business days?

The rotor and the brake pad need to be replaced, so i told them let's paint the blackout on the new bumper, and lets put Hawk pads on it, shoot maybe a good time to get the Calipers powder Coated with all this other stuff?

Not one scratch on the side skirt, rear end diff, links, nothing, it will clear everything with the rotor on the ground, wouldn't have believed it if i didn't see it for myself!

I'll post some pics, but i already purchased AEM Wideband Air/Fuel and a digital AEM Boost Gauge, the boost gauge came in as the wrong one so i should be getting the right one real soon? My ordering history lately has been very poor indeed!

Bummer to hear about your wheels. I had just gotten home too... Before I read up on this thread I was spending too much time looking for a VR Camaro around town.
