Hi, I'm here to join the potential Shit-storm.... I bought my wheels in April(ish) sent them back immediately because of the paint. After a month of waiting, I finally got them back, and they are seemingly worse than when I sent them?!? I'm super pissed! But awaiting a response on their suggested remedy.

Hell, I've technically owned them for months! But have yet to see them much.... I feel like a father whose child neglects them, except to collect my child support checks! Ahhhhhh FML! Savini being the whoreish ex-wife, spending all my dough! I just wanna mount the things and drive already!!!!!!

OMG.................. THAT'S Savini to me. My first 6 months or so I had them half the time. I never had a set I could realy ride on til I had them over 6 months. AFTER I got my wheels.

I don't know if I would ever buy Savini wheels again even if they CLAIM they rectified their issues.

Well... I took my Savini wheels off my car today. I put on a set of 20" Forgeline wheels with drag radials. It's like going from cheap crappy stilettos to track shoes.

Well what do you want them to say? LMAO What can they say?

It gets quite comical at some points with the e-mails to BFXAuto about these wheels, of course I hear NOTHING from Savini.

But I agree the boiling point has been surpassed at this point.

Well I wasn't in the market at the current moment, but I was seriously considering within the next 3 months of going with a Savini set myself...

You talked about their marketing and flashy-ness... their website is one of the best I've seen, apparently doesn't live up to the hype though...

After reading all of the negative feedback about the company, and reading up about performance loss in 22s vs 20s (looking to supercharge, which I will prob do first now) I think I'm going to just try the plasti-dip stuff, see how it works, and worst case just go powdercoat my stock 20s.

Savini should just do it themselves. Who knows?

All I can tell you is they truly are that bad.

I guess that would be something Tran or the Mods could answer better than me, but I do know that they do not get into individual things like this between members and vendors and that is ok by me. I bought them on my on free will, not this site, Tran, or the Mods fault.
Eventually after enough people get hosed or have to many problems, even if they fix them, then it becomes a question of if it is worth the headache.

I know several other peopl who have different brand wheels who have had Zero issues, a coupl who have different brands who did have issues BUT they were taken care of immediately and affectively.

Savini does a GREAT job marketing their product, I will give them that, their customer service..well........that is another question. It seems to me that in todays market place where mod dollars are tightly contested, that it would behoove them to ensure every customer is satisfied.

If I was the only one having issue then MAYBE you could say " Well he is just THAT GUY who can't be made happy" BUT the problem is you have SEVERAL members here on just THIS forum telling a story of poor quality and poor service.

The intent of this thread on my part is to inform people of the issues with buying Savini Wheels and the problems that I went and am going through to hopefully make people aware BEFORE they plunk down their money.

I have made aware Savini and the vendor and I quote from the e-mail I sent them
"Whatever they do......I want these wheels VIBRATION FREE at ALL Speeds when I bolt them back on my car. Period. OR I want my money back. SO whatever needs to be done to accomplish making these wheels smooth as glass then that is what I want done, if that means new tires, oh well, if that means new wheels then so be it, if it means standing on ones head while whistling Dixie at 3: am then that is what must be done. I just know I am tired of the vibration and having to send these wheels back and forth."

I can not be any clearer and this can not be misunderstood.

As far as the performace drop PQ better knows more than I do about that. I do not race, mainly show and cruise my car so it does not matter to me. I have a cammed car , it sounds good, lookks good, now I want it to ride good.

Em, do you know if Savani tried standing on their head whistling Dixie at 3am when you were having problems with your wheels? Jkel may have stumbled on the answer to the vibration problem without even realizing it.

This is pretty bad. I'm afraid to buy wheels from ANY company now.

I gotta try and sell my Crapvinis and buy some used wheels. Got a set I'd buy RIGHT NOW in the members classified section but I need to move the Savinis first.

I used the money from my stock wheels to recoupe some of the back and forth shipping and shop fees incured BY my Savinis.

I hear ya. I paid $360 to ship them back to Savini because they remounted the tires and sensors.

I wonder if a class action law suit should be under way instead of just throwing my hands in the air and giving up?

Powdercoating hopefully will be better. But if they prepped them the same as mine, you'll be ok til it chips. Then it will come off in sheets. Good luck.

I have had mine too long I think. I'm done with that sorry ass company.

Easily the worst purchase of my life as far as regret and shitty product.
