LOL. I have to admit they do have some nice LOOKING wheels. PQ's wheels are some of the best looking wheels on any Camaro period. Too bad Savini quality and service stinks.

I am not as nice as PQ.

I'll take my money back and buy some wheels locally, well Atlanta, and be done with it......
Understood. My comments weren't directed at anyone personally. Just a rant against vendors who don't stand by their manufacturers products and an all too compliant customer base that goes along with the excuses.

I hope this all works out for you and you get 100% perfect wheels or 100% refund.

As I stated in another thread, I think PQ should get all his shipping charges refunded too, either by Savini or the vendor.

I've followed this whole Savini saga(s) from the beginning, so now I'm emotionally invested.


I want justice.

I'd like it if they paid the $360 I paid to ship the wheels to them...

Thanks for stopping me from making a $4000 mistake. Love the look of these rims, bummer to hear they are worthless!

How much more would these cost from a local retailer? Appears this is the ONLY way to buy Savinis.

I'm sorry if I missed, but what was your experience with them? Was it just cosmetic? Or did you have vibrations too?

Local vendors will charge you Market Value, which mean these wheels list for 1295.00 each...... I paid 995.00 which from what I am told is what Savini sells them to dealers for.

The shop in Atlanta ( Butler Tire) told me that the MHT wheels that they have sold have never had an issue. Butler is a high end shop. You never really know if that is a marketing ploy or what but they did tell me if I buy wheels from them that this would have NEVER gotten this far, that they would have gotten me in a set of wheels that made me happy.PERIOD.

Thanks Lori, I hope your good wishes travel to the west coast and change the hearts of those out there.
