PostSubject: wheels question   Mon Aug 27, 2012 5:48 pm

so long story short, farm and fleet balanced my wheels after i redid the lips and got the centers powder coated and such
and they scratched/scuffed up my lips bc they put external/outside weights on the lips

so i went back and got them taken off and put inside tape weights
well every wheel has gashes and i took the car there and showed the manager
he took some picks and said he is gonna do some research and give me a call back on wednesday about it

does anyone run a shop that can give me an estimate that is a chunk above fair or does anyone know where i can go for some?

he did say "what are you trying to get out of this, some new wheels?"
i kind of chuckled and said i doubt you will be doing that since they are 'bbs rs wheels'

anyways ill shut up but ill post a pic of my car so you guys can see what it looks like now in my build thread

That sucks, but it's what you get for going to Hillbilly Jim's tire, lube, and animal insemination. Those people have no clue. Next time you should bring em to me, I'll do em right.

Did you bring the wheels to them to save money or time?

Follow up question; how's that working out for you?

It sucks learning from experience.

im not looking to have someone do it, i could myself
i am looking to get a legit estimate from a company

i bought it to them to save time bc its right down the road,
i have taken my shit there befor, not my fault common sense didnt come into kick when you see custom wheels.

its more learning from experience its more or less luck of the draw bc like i said i didnt have a problem when they did them befor on my other wheels

i talked to vinny, he doesnt do like a estimate on paper ect...ect...
