Its okay, I wouldn't some pesky guy called Nine Ball, either.

I have Pfadt springs on my car too, same wheel/tire size shown here. I have one local buddy with his car slammed about 1.5" more and still no rubbing on a similar width combo. Its all about getting the proper specs ordered!

It has nothing to do with trust. It's more my personal neurosis.

For me, it gives peace of mine when a customer confirms what the salesman says. (Ask my husband, he says I worry too much!)

PQ's car really looks great with those wheels.

Ok, PQ good job, your wheels look great. Now, let's talk maggie. Did you sell your other wheels yet? That would be a good start towards the supercharger.

I might just bag the Maggie for now. Too much. I'm thinking rotors and calipers.

BTW, guys, everyone who looks at them here has guessed 20 inch. They are pretty surprized when I tell the 22.

Great style, sizing/offsets, and finish options. Well done my friend.

I'm also surprised that the 315 looks so good on the 10.5... most people run them on the 11", but it's true it does look a little stretched. I'm loving PQ's setup now.

I'm thinking I like the way the 10.5 wheel fits the 315 better. Might need to change my standard sizing to those instead. We spec'd out PQ's this way because there was a national backorder on the Pirelli 315-22 tires, and wanted the option to run 305 tires just in case.

What happened to PQ's wheel? I heard a rumor that something was wrong with one.

One is a bit on the bumpy side.... I'm sure they are working on it.
Savini and Nine Ball are class acts. You don't get premium pricing for your product and not deliver on customer service.

Any updates?

Where do we stand on PQ's wheels?


An awful lot of people at the fest were interested in hearing his story. and looking at his wheels. We are all looking for a happy ending on the balancing concerns he's got...

Didn't he check the box next to the "I want round wheels" option when he ordered?

As long as he didn't check the "I want square wheels" option.

Ok got the scoop. When ordering the wheels he checked the round wheel option on 3 of the wheels then a customer came in and he accidentally checked triangle on the 4th wheel.

PQ You Are An Idoit

Why the popcorn? Savini is handling the issue, PQ will need to send the wheel(s) back to have them inspected. Might have been damaged during shipping. Either way, the issue will be resolved. Even if I have to buy the wheels personally.

Its only been one business day (yesterday) since the report. I don't see why some people feel the need to press the issue, before there is even an issue.
