RS on the 2SS what did I get for $1300?

More to the point wheels... I have the dealer installed 21' wheels for about $4700. So... do the cost of these dealer wheels take into account the other wheels... or could I order these $4700 wheels after the fact and for the same money now own two sets of wheels?


I am really starting to think I got ripped off. Can anyone help me see this in a different light, or get me some ammo to retrurn to the dealership for my "RS" wheels? Please.

EDIT: The dealership is giving me the RS wheels as well, all I had to do is ask. They say no one ever asked for them before.

From the past post that I've read, if you order the 21s you get them plus the wheels and tires that are part of whatever package your car was ordered with.

The 21" wheels are an added option.

The 20" wheels and tires are yours also with the RS option, and the dealer should give them to you when you take delivery on the car.

Go back to the dealer and tell them you want the 20" wheels and tires (which you paid for with the RS option)
Your dealer has ripped you off!
A reputable dealer would have given them to you without you having to ask.

I'd start by getting ahold of the dealer and asking them where your wheels are because the 21's are a Dealer installed item so the stock had to be taken off...they didnt come from Oshawa with 21s

Why do you think you pay so much for those 21 inch wheels? They are not an upgrade, they are a replacement set, you get to keep the 20 inch wheels and tires.

What does blowing smoke mean? He said no?
They are your tires and wheels, tell them you want them.
If he says no, call GM Customer Service, or threaten to take them to small claims court.

If you bought aftermarket wheels and tires after the purchase, would you expect the aftermarket company to confiscate your old wheels and tires that were on the car?
Get down to the dealership pronto and don't leave until they agree.
If they have already sold them to someone else, they will have to order you new ones.

Even if you end up with your wheels, it would be enough for me to never do business with them again if it was me. They knew what they were doing when they kept your wheels.

How old are you? The only reason I ask is you seem to be a little intimidated by the sales or service guys. I am NOT poking fun. Another reason I ask is if you are younger the sales guy will try to b.s , the wheels and tires that came off the car are rightfully yours. If you're scared or whatever take someone with you that will fight for your stuff. Like stated previously they are stealing from you ask to speak to the owner of the dealership, call gm customer service. There are several GM reps on here.

There is nothing for anyone else to chime in about......the wheels and tires are yours period!

The dealer is trying to steal them from you, to sell them for more profit. The dealer paid nothing for those wheels, but you did. They are yours, go get them and don't leave without them agreeing. Blow your top if you have to.

I would walk in there and find the stealer tell him you have some questions about the car. Then pop the trunk, and say "are you going to put my tires in the trunk or do I have to put YOU in there?"
