Those videos are crazy. No wheel should do that, especially new $8,000 wheels. I've seen super cheap Chinese wheels that were truer than that. Can't comment on the their reliability, but they actually felt good on the car and balanced right.

And the shops that I took my Savinis to agreed. Even let me borrow a cheap set that he said I could HAVE for 800.00 MOUNTED and BALANCED. And they rode smooth.

Savini butt ****ed me and I'll gaurantee they do it to others. Most people put them on cars that they barely drive or just show. The rest get lucky or don't know the difference.

I've heard people tell me that 22 inch and up will just vibrate like that.

By the way, Savini told me that these wheels were within acceptable tolerances.

Worst thieving company I've ever dealt with. Bunch of crooks.

Get's a bit sloppy in the rain but grips much better than anything else I've had.

I don't think DE's car would have set any records if it was still rolling (and I use that term loosely) on Savinis.

I'm still flabergasted at this. A wheel company that can't make a round wheel.

I'll do you one better.

A wheel company that can't make a round wheel AND charges over $6,000 for their wheels.

Exactly. I've NEVER seen or heard of a cast wheel being out of round. I put a set of 22" wheels on the car from Rent&Roll that they said I could buy for 600.00 and they rolled smooth as hell.

if they would have prepped the wheels appropriately rather than just trying to powdercoat over chrome it would have been ok.
