Good luck! people here in the sates can't seem to get their wheels in the promised time or get their wheels period. What makes you think you're getting your wheels in 6 weeks, specially if you're from the UK?

I would search 360's reputation on this forum and reconsider.

OMG, you've got to be kidding me...

I guess it's asking too much for people to do a little research before handing over their money...

Dude...it's just a cheezy carbon fiber wrap job over an aluminum center spoke section.

The wheel isn't actually made out of carbon fiber...

Those wheels weight about the same as any other 2-3 piece 'bling' wheel you can name. (low-to-mid 20 pound range)

Great looking wheels, best of luck dealing with 360, they have failed to deliver on several occasions and hope they donīt fail you. Beware of 360!

I guess when you have cool flashy photos of your wheels people will keep falling for your overpriced late and incorrect sized wheels.

Here are my thoughts on 360 forged and their damaged reputation:

New management for 360 Forged sounds like a move in the right direction, but no one will really know if this change is going to make any difference yet.

I can tell you this...

NOT addressing the past failures in a public 'mea culpa' type press release was pure stupidity on the part of the new management.

Running away from, or completely ignoring that you now have a damaged brand name is just not smart. (from a pure business standpoint)

That strategy is completely asinine to say the least. I suppose they think new potential wheel customers will just forget everything that has happened over the past year or so...and just give them a 'free pass'.

That way, 360 won't ever have to own up to their own internal screw ups and poor customer service record.

It's PURE ARROGANCE. (mistakes? what mistakes?)

The current negative tide towards their products will continue to have an adverse affect on future sales. Especially if they continue to deny and or NOT ADDRESS those past mistakes.

They need to do this...if they ever truly want their business model to recover from what has transpired over the past 12-18 months. Nothing is going to change until this occurs. Buyers have a very long memory.

I have done consulting and crisis management work in the automotive industry for years now, and 360's for current approach to this situation is all wrong...

Apparently, according to my own inquiry into it, 360 is doing better under new management and, while still slow and still having offset issues, the new head is a lot easier to deal with and less of an ass than the last owner.

That's all nice and well, but the core problem is not only the guy at the top of the food chain.

If the top executive isn't willing to shake up the entire structure or foundation of his company (including firing anyone who isn't getting the job done) then nothing will ever truly change.

The hardest part in running any company, is knowing when you simply have a bad business plan...or the wrong people to execute it.

The 360 Forged brand name will continue to languish aimlessly until some major internal renovations occur.

360 Forged's negative "Q" rating is extremely high right now, and that has to be dealt with in a much more direct way. The new chief executive can do this, assuming he has any competent business advisor's on the payroll.

If 360 forged doesn't get a handle on this asap, there won't be anything left to save...
