Let me see if I understand: you waited months to receive some crap wheels and you kept going for more crap for many months more. No mention of requesting an immediate refund as soon as you opened those boxes the very first time.

What am I supposed to learn here, really?

I now know to stay away from a certain wheel vendor

Doesn't make sense to me either After opening the box that first time I would have requested an immediate refund and return auth for the wheels.

Forgery Specialties is just another IForgery.

I've always wondered where all these "high end", "forged" wheel companies keep coming from.

thanks for the 'heads-up'!
It would be cool if there was a site where there was ebay-like feedback, so we know who to avoid.
I understand the forums are in a tight spot with advertisers/sponsors, but maybe there is a good thing to losing advertisers that sell crap!

What a horror story...why don't you sue them for fraud (among other things)? I'm no attorney, but they must of violated a number of consumer protection laws as well.

Concur with what others have said:

1. Be wary of any wheel company with "forged" in it's name
2. Stick with the big dogs that make exceptional wheels - volk, bbs, etc...

Good luck man, that sucks!

+1. You guys called it. Good to see vendors highlighting when they have bad experiences as well and inform others to stay away.
