Guys, Tony, Nick, thank you for taking care of me. Can't wait to get these back.

I hope I haven't been too much of a pita guys.

Big Ten tires sucks. Firestone sucks. They both said there were three wheels messed up. But how does a someone know they are dealing with a good shop?

Sorry for sending ALL 4 back, I was just making sure I got it right.

Which rear is the one off? Just curious.

I'm nothing if not honest and fair. It appears, also, that there may have been at least one of these on my car. Probably not the cause of the vibration, but good post anyway. It could have very well caused some bibration as well. Not sure which wheel it was on (or wheels) but it won't be on for long.

My apologies, sir, for the implied facepalm.

I'm headed home now to take the wheels off and look.

I am having my rims and tires sent directly to IPS Motorsports for mounting and balancing. They have a "touchless" mounting machine and Brandon (at IPS) assured me that it will not damage my wheels. Do you have a high end performance shop in town? (I'm not sure that a town that doesn't have 14 mm lugs would have such a shop.)

There needs to be new forum area on these boards called "most entertaining threads ever" and this one could be the model.

No doubt. But, ya, I gotta call them tomorrow. Nick would rather me send them to a shop directly to prevent unneccesary handling. So that's what I'm gonna do.

That's what I am doing too. Nine Ball is having everything shipped to IPS. Thanks for the valuable lesson! You have no idea how much you've helped me out, PQ!
