Yea they are complete shit in the customer service department. Their wheels do look nice tho. You are the 50th person I have heard that hates their timelines and customer service. Ban me for telling the truth.

They will deliver ur wheels, sooner or later, and trust me, u will love them. I know they have issues getting their wheels out, (I was one of them) I think its mainly due to the fact that they moved into a new location 2 times I believe, much much bigger location to take care of this issue, but unfortunately we all ordered while the moving was taking place. Had u ordered now, u would get ur wheels much sooner. U have every right to b upset, but b just a bit more patient and they will come thru. Sooner or later they always do lol. Sometimes we just wish it was sooner then later.

The wheels are nice, but is it worth the trouble? I rather order from somewhere else. I hope they take care of you soon Timo

well the thing is , the first payment i sent was for ordering so it was a downpayment , then the useless sales guy told me that the remainder of money will be taken out when the wheels are done.Then without my consent they went ahead charged my credit card in December i called them and i say i havent even consented to this charge ,all they had to say was sorry ,these guys need to straighten up their act man but i gave them the benefit of the doubt cause obviously i really wanted the wheels .Now i think they are taking advantage of ppl like myself

I know iforged use to have crap customer service also, not sure if they have fixed it.


The 360 forged wheels are so beautiful though. Almost worth the hassle.

Kinda reminds me of when I did an engine transplant with a place called Place Racing down by San Gabriel area. They originally said it would take a handful of weeks which turned out to be about 6+ months. They even made us pay for repainting the engine bay claiming we had it painted before because they stripped the paint somehow and that was their excuse. Mother fuckers. I feel your pain. Shady businesses are a dime a dozen. GT Motoring called me today and said my BBS wheels from JAPAN arived today =D. Order was placed bout 1 months ago.

Honestly, Im speaking out of expirience and a few others on here can as well. If u r completely unhappy with their service and r tired of waiting to the point where u dont want their wheels any longer then I guess yeah, U can probably call them and get ur money back, since Im sure they wouldnt deny u that or even fight with you since they r pretty nice ppl over there. But if ur just annoyed with them and all u want is ur wheels, then I would suggest u wait because u will love them and they will do right by u, trust me. But of course u r entitled to do as u feel. But as far as everyone saying get ur money back, unless u dont want the wheels anymore, u have NOTHING to worry about. Ur wheels will come. Just call them and c whats up.

Wanted to add, if you're dropping a couple G's up front. The least you deserve is an actual explanation on the progress of your wheels. Not the same bullshit "another 2 weeks" without even actually checking what's taking so long.

Your minium wait will be 3 months, and it could take as long a 5 months. The problem you have is these wheels are made to order and you choose colour, type, finish and width, so there not off the shelf wheels.

I believe 3 months (12 weeks) should be the time line that any product that you order that needs to be manufactured should take. I usually wait that long for furniture and other items to be made and imported into the country. The problem is that with wheels you usually walk into a tyre/wheel shop, see the wheels on the self, say I want a set and you come back a couple days later and have them fitted as they are mass produced.

360 wheels are not mass produced and the demand is outstriping supply, the problem you have is whether you want to wait 3-5 months for these wheels or go buy a mass produced wheel. Yes it it frustrating and I jumped up & down like the next guy did.

It's the same for me with BMW, I have ordered my third X5 E70, this one I ordered at the end of Jan 09, it will not go into production unit early April 09 and I won't get it here in Australia until the end of May or early June 09, thats 4-5 months, I could go and buy one off the showroom floor but I want one with all the options and dealers don't order X5's fully optioned up to sell of the floor. It's using the same principal, I don't want the standard mass produced product and for that I have to wait, I am not happy about it and I have told the dealer who is a mate of mine its crap but thats the way it is.
