...About Time...

Wow, what an ordeal that was... I walked into the tire shop over a month ago and ordered a set of 315/70/17 BFG All Terrains, and 4 17x8.5 wheels... well a week later the wheels showed up, 2 of them wrong, and the other 2 scratched... so we mounted one of them for a test fit and it cleared fine, no rubbing at all... i reordered another set, and after 4 weeks of not hearing anything from these guys i went in and gave em an ear full, turns out these wheels came in scratched too! so i ordered a set of Eagle Alloy 079s 17x9, 2 days later i had an appointment for the alignment and mounting, so i get there at 10am, and he says, one wheel came in scratched, but the good one will be here at 12:30, 1:30 rolls around and the Eagle delivery kid shows up with the wrong wheel... so they throw the scratched one on until the good one shows up... now the other wheel we test fitted had a +8 offset, the new ones have a -12 offset, so the 315s wouldnt fit. Ordered up a set of 305/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers, and FINALLY im rollin. You may ask why i waited and still bought them through these guys...? well i paid exactly cost for the rims, and less than cost (they lost money) on the tires... so it was worth it... PICTURE TIME

Very nice! Sucks you had to go through all that bull, but hey when the price is right They almost look like mine just inverted colors.

I only drive in the city, to get out of it!!!
