It's pretty much been decided that Savini wheels are for SHOW only and not designed to go

Thats alot of money just for show...... Yeah custom made 3 piece ,forged wheels....just for show is a great marketing theme for Savini.....We all hopefully are learning the wheels and company are junk.

Wonder how PQ felt about his show wheels when they started flaking...........Ya'll know I am just making fun of Savini and not members like me.

Holy crap. The video's of the rims are incredible.
It takes a real special sport of idiot who can't make something round on a lathe.
wtf is wrong with this company? And who would buy those rims for show only when you can buy nice rims that actually roll true.

geez, I'm flabbergasted.

I think the buyer had them or will have them repainted. So they should be good after that. The intermitent air problems were the result of the tires being stretched on and off so many times according to the last shop I had them at. And the second two wheels they sent out after I had them remake them were probably the best two they ever made.

And remember........ those were AFTER they had been shipped back to Savini TWICE.

Glad to see this pop up again, I was thinking it was the Asanti wheels we were supposed to beware of.

Good gawd. And this is supposed to be for a car capable of 180+mph. I wouldn't buy a valve stem cap from those clowns, they shouldn't even be in the auto industry. Maybe patio furniture is more their speed?

Funny thing is they tried furniture....but couldn't wrap their heads around the appropriate leg length requirement....

Those chairs are within acceptable Savini tolerances.

Just read this thread through... man I feel for you guys here. I have Modulares, and I couldn't be happier, I saw that you had them torqued to 140; I have mine torqued to 110, and have heard that too much torque on lugs can cause vibration. Maybe try that as a ditch attempt?

I just went through this shit with Lorenzo wheels. I feel your pain man. I ended up going with TSW Valencia wheels and no vibration or shaking. Light weight and good looks. I tried 4 different wheel companys one was $1000 a wheel and I tried one that was only $250 a wheel. Honestly the TSW wheel felt the best and the total was only $1200.00 installed. Trust me I went through hell with this but I'm happy now... Good luck buddy!!! I will haves pics up tomorrow..
