OMFG..............

THAT's the Savini farce.

No shit. It's TOTALLY true of Savini wheels.

Actually, the ones I had in the end may have been the best riding Savinis EVER after I made their sorry asses fix them.

Hope the rest of the equipment is worth over 100k and the car is discounted BECAUSE of the wheels.

I think $75,000 of the asking price is just for the wheels

As far as Savini wheels go, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

But for real. We aren't bagging on the car. Just making jokes about the wheel company. I'm sure the car is just fine, but the wheel company (not necessarily the wheels) is sorry. Savini wheels are not made for normal use.

No I do Understand this is why we choose to give the stock setup with the car the Savini are for show only they look great but I def would not use them as an every day wheel not to mintuch how hard they would be to clean every time you drive it.

I sure wish I would have seen this thread prior to Purchasing my Savinis. They are currently back at Savini, yep, vibration! I guess you live and you learn. I hope they FIX them the first try. Wish me luck

THey did finally get my vibration to a minimum. Never completely gone but my suspension is pretty stiff so could have made it more noticeable.

I had to get rid of them.

It took them ultimately REMAKING them to get them acceptable. And they only ever got acceptable. Which should, by default, be unacceptable considering the cost.

Take them to you local tire shop, get some good video like the one I posted and post them up so they can see them. It's pathetic that Savini tries to say their wheels are anywhere near a drivable wheel and not just a show item.

Mine went back 3 times. I doubt they'll help much. They will communicate and make you feel good about it and be your buddy while NOT fixing your issue if you let them.

This is AFTER Savini had them shipped back to them 2 times and I got them for the third time counting the original receipt.

When I put another members 22s on my car it was smooooooth. Savini is a shitty company who really knows how to market.

Yes. I was told that this was 'Within acceptable tolerance". The publicity made Savini deal with me.
