I already know I'm doing the thin concept style side markers.

Those tails look great on there. Just make sure the LS3s see them at the fest.
Thanks! I'm loving the MPD1 spoiler and flat black taillight bezels too. My side markers should be in Tuesday and I'm installing my Heritage Grille tomorrow. Stainless Works headers ship out Monday too.

Yes, I installed it myself. It took a little less than an hour.

*sigh*

Ok. So I went last week to have my sensors, that Savini sent to me a while ago, put on my wheels and to fix a bad bead leak. They tore the sidewall of my front tire. So they put some temp tires on the front and ordered me one. Well, today I went to get my tires put back on and fix MORE wheel leaks from the sensors being put on. They just couldn't seem to get the beads to seal so they used bead sealer and used nitrogen. Plus the sensors are a pain.

Sure enough, one of the sensors would not seal. So I have to go back FOR LIKE THE SIXTH TIME next week due to them not having the right stuff.

Is there such thing as a curse on items......?

So it's the L99 curse then. . . .

Ever heard of anyone taking this long to get wheels?

Am I crazy?

OMG............... I've probably bought and had 15 sets of tires over my lifetime and NEVER had a problem. This is crazy.

This is obviously not normal, but is it crazy? It seems almost unbeleivable.

Tires are tires right? Sensors are sensors. I gotta go back there again......

And I don't even know if the tires are gonna hold air.





Wait....................... They will.......

Just keep blowing hot air into them. You're an endless supply.

Seriously, you need to return those and buy some USWs...

I can't believe the run of bad luck you've had with your wheels/tires.

Too late for that. I can't allow myself to spend more on wheels.

Wheels seem to be fine. Now it's the tires/sensors/er...... I guess.

I'll see in the morning wether they are holding.

Sell them (if you can). Bismarck can get you a set of wheels in a couple of days I'm sure. =)

There's no way you can just return them now?
If this were a car, you would definately qualify for lemon law. I think this is an issue between manufacturer and vendor now.

His car is going to be on display for Savini at the afterparty though. At least the wheels won't get jacked. Flinstone Mobile!

In all fairness, the shop wasn't naming the wheels as the culprit. They weren't NOT saying that, but ALL of the wheels have held air at one time or another so surely they are good. Only thing they said is that 3 peice wheels can be a pain in the ass.

I wonder how often it happens with these big ass wheels?

Once before, they said they had to 'Fix' them.
