Savini was at a recent event here in So. Cal. and one of our group was considering wheels from them. I don't have any experience with Savini, but just reading the people who have, I warned him to check out the threads for complaints and tread carefully, so they probably lost a sale that day. It sucks to pay a lot and not get quality product in return.

I know a lot of people out there. Mainly from this forum. Lot of people who are kinda tight with the Savini guys. So I don't give this negative info lightly. It's the only product I've spoken this way about. (as far as the product it's self) And yet I feel compelled to.

If you consider the odds of a product being problematic, you consider a middle of the road product to have some problems but not a lot. You consider a product that is supposed to be THE BEST. That you pay THE MOST for, you figure that problems would be few and far between. And yet everyone I personaly know who bought Savini wheels have had issues. Some less vocal than others. And I know of no less than 4 people OTHER than myself. That's 100% have had issues and MULTIPLE issues.

The product is a sham. Plain and simple. My paint was put on top of shiny chrome.

My Forgeline wheels arrive tomorrow. My 22" Savinis are coming off my car. I'm eating an $8k loss.

Sheesh, again?

I followed the whole PQ episode. The thing that struck me was that Savini made him eat hundreds of dollars (at least) in shipping costs for something that was their problem.

That alone said a lot about the kind of company they are.

If I were Dr Jkel, I would be demanding my money back immediately and not fooling around with them. The longer you let them drag this out, the more it will cost you in the end.

Hopefully you have written proof that they agreed to a refund after the first fix attempt. If so, hold them to it immediately.

I'm glad that I never got sucked into these way over priced wheels. I'll take my Foose nitrous rims any day over this crap. I paid $2,700 with tires and they work great and still look great.

wow... really sorry to hear that.

I want to get some wheels, but I'm getting cold feet. May just get mine power-coated.

I couldn't imagine $8k for wheels.

Hell, I'd just like $1000 for some used SS rims and tires from here off the website.
