I have Savini S29 wheels and am having the same issue with them. Mine started leaking air around the bolts that hold the 3-pieces together. I sent them two of the wheels and they are claiming that due to road hazard! They want to charge me 900.00 to fix the out of round issue. GTFO I had already sent the two front ones back for this issue before. I would say if you want to buy Savini wheels, plan on trailering your car to wherever you want to show it and don't drive it on the public streets. I wish I would have seen this tread before I bought mine. So what are some suggestions for Good Wheel makers?

It's a dog and pony show. They get them back and don't fix them. Assuming that you will just deal with it after the hassle. I guess most of their customers just do. Sorry to hear it.

Rob (SSE 4 2SS) has a good one but I'd go with Nineball (Tony) here on C5. He will knock that stance out of the park.

I dont know the history of this company. Possibly just popped up out of the blue the last several years?? In any case I would never by rims from a company that caters to exotic cars that are lucky to see 1000miles in a year. Also bet they cant take a good hit from a curb with bending. Go with a company with some history like American Wheels, Centerline etc.
