Wrong is an understatement, this is criminal. I think we all feel like idiots Em so you are in good company. Luckily yours are fine now, but I in good concious could not sell them to someone knowing they vibrate. If they come back and vibrate I will demand a refund, not that it will do any good but I will make noise till they do.

True, True, True...... I look at it more in a way of seeing someone driving drunk and just saving other people a bunch of heartache.

Well if you play P**** then you get F*****! Unfortunately trying to be a nice guy does not work in todays society. Not many businesses have integrity and they only understand pressure.

Your ad said "High-quality 3-piece forged wheels".



Isn't that false advertising?

My wheels were fine once they were refinished with powdercoat. I was making the distinction between 3-piece forged wheels vs. cast wheels. I would never misrepresent an item I am selling. Please don't insinuate otherwise.

Sorry about that. But, I almost feel guilty for selling them after all the issues others are having.

That is the whole reason that if my wheels are not 100% right then I want a refund. Just do not want to send my problems to someone else. Luckily in your case the problems were fixed and it was a finish problem not a vibration problem but I know what you are talking about.

Maybe they were Zinik first and then went to Savini. I am unsure.

Funny little story I was watching a program about Unique who is based in Miami who does high end cars for mainly professional athletes, celebrities etc......they were doing a Range Rover for CC Sabathia ( Yankees Pitcher) and a Ferrari and they were putting Savini wheels on the Range Rover. Well first off the wheels came painted the WRONG color......imagine that. But it happens.

I really wonder if CC Sabathia has any issues with the paint falling off or the wheel vibrating.....hmmmmmmm.
