The fighting is so fierce because the stakes are so small. So much drama in the wheel world.

Have you seen the Mr. Sparkle wheels in real life? I heard they were made out of aluminum foil. He quoted me $4000 a wheel, seems like a good price.

1. at this point i am completely done with them, they simply can't do anything to make it right. So you don't want to warn anyone here about the wheel company specifically but take the time to write a long as post? Dumb.
2. If i post their company name - i will have 10 people who had good luck with them, post how great they are bla bla bla. Dumb. Who cares? Their experience isn't your experience. I love HRE wheels but that doesn't mean there aren't people who posted negative experiences about them. I don't take it personally when they do. So don't take it personally if you post about a shitty experience and get hate.
3. the wheel company will try to defend themself and then i would have no option but to post all the emails in the thread. My time is worth more than a moral victory. If i was in my early 20s and had the time - i would so do this. Dumb. Who cares? What good does it do to call out a company if you're not going to call them out? Wait, you arent in your early 20s but have time to post on this forum but don't have time to post the name of the wheel company? Dumb.
4. this is 2014- i am going to be wiser about spending money and will not spend money on things from unreliable companies (that includes buying stuff from online such as clothes/tech stuff etc.). lol. New rules for new year So what happened in 2013? Who was the unreliable company? You don't even want to warn your fellow enthusiasts? Dumb.
5. I want to stay as positive as i can for 2014. I know everyone wants to be informed, that's why i listed name of the companies that I trust and I had good luck with:
BBS, Advan, Klassen, HRE, Vok Vossen and VMRs.
so basicly you can take it as anything outside of the list is company X to me. Dumb again. You want to stay positive but rip Company X but not name Company X so that potentially someone on here does business with and gets royally screwed by Company X? Really? Dumb.

Thank you guys. The vacation begins tomorrow. Really excited.
See above
Uh oh ... Don't get Pertplus mad ...

How many MORR times must we ask who it is? The MORR you ignore the question, the MORR angry we get. What MORR can I say? We want MORR info!

Mods should just delete this USELESS thread since OP won't help out the community. What's the point of this thread? Like we need someone to waste 5 minutes of my life I'll never get back to warn is not to but from a shitty wheel company. Wow. Didn't know that.

Don't know if it would happen here, but on some other car forums it's not uncommon for threads to get locked/deleted if the OP's call out sponsors or products made by sponsors.

So if Wheel Company "X" is who everyone is insinuating it is then there you have it.

I have a set. They are apparently repurposed shopping cart wheels he stole from homeless people while they slept.

I would be really pissed if a vendor puts my info out in the open for everyone else to see like email and home address regardless of what happened this is not right. Poor practice.

I think I'm gonna grab me some MORR
