They have yet to explain their lack of certification. Doubt they will be explaining this.

Those wheels are a joke.

I love how the email with the "Assembly flange pocketing" description comes with a picture of BBS wheels on a Ferrari

The lettering might have been added when the shop disassembled the OP's wheel in Japan. They probably labeled it so they knew which piece was from which wheel. Japanese Kanji is Chinese characters.

Hello guys I wanted to come on here and clear up a few things I apologize for our first interaction with this forum to be in the matter but we feel it is important for us to clear up some assumptions that have been made.

First Jordan has ZERO affiliation with Wheels Boutique we are ADV 1 dealers but as far as any other affiliation such as ownership that is an incorrect assumption.

I assure you that the issue that had been mentioned above will be resolved in the correct matter and I'm sure ADV will come on here to clear the air as far as that but I would just like to clear up the mention of Wheels Boutique and why it was brought up in this thread in the first place.

Thank You

LMAO WOW. Love Pinhead's responses to these threads.

I think they are abandoning this brand and starting up a new one. I have a feeling the new brand FiftyFive or whatever its called is owned by the same people. The designs looks eerily similar to ADV's and both are Miami based companies.

Why people pay ADV's prices considering their reputation is beyond me.

That's just terrible.
For some reason... despite their professional looking website, I felt their business, product couldn't be trusted. I guess they spend more effort in to their website than their products and services... shame

They have great marketing I won't deny but the product and customer service fails in so many ways.

He's now working with his boy Jordan over at ADV.1...

ADV.1 is Jordan and Migels latest attempt to re-invent themselves. (after striking out a few times)

This new company will end up just as f'd up as 360 Forged.

It's actually a pretty simple formula...

Same unethical/lying/thieves + same poor business management skills + same incompetent wheel fitments = same end result.

It's not rocket science folks...

Here's the second biggest problem....obviously the poor craftmanship of the wheels being first.
The issue is the customer SHOULD NOT HAVE NEEDED TO POST THE ISSUE IN THE FIRST PLACE. It should have been resolved. I was thinking really hard about buying a set of ADV1's. That's out now.
They make all thos video's and brag about their quality and forgot to keep it real. I can understand mistakes happening. I can understand being so busy that 1 or 2 problems slip through. I wil never understand not taking care of an issue the first time it becomes known. Geez, they have made enough money to not be grubby over a set of wheels. There is no excuse for this.

The hub pattern/design was likely CNC machine cut from a forged blank. That's the way virtually all low volume multi-peice forged wheels are done.
