Default Damn Rims

Wassup 6thgen fam, so I finally got my rims yesterday and these fuckers gave my the wrong offset!! They staggered the wheels when I told them I wanted the lip 3.5 or bigger all around! Ugh. So now, I have a 2 inch lip in the front and a 3.5 inch lip in the rear. Im pissed! I didnt want that at all! But I dunno what to do or how to even come at them without sounding like a dick.. I mean Im sponsored by them so I dont want any "bad blood" but I really dont want a staggered look nor do I want to wait another 6 weeks fml. What should I do?

just come to em like a normal person. tell em exactly what you want. if they sponsored you, they should be willing to work with you. you arent forced to roll what they want ya to roll with. remember, you can catch more bees with honey, than vinegar.

So true guys. Its just the customer service there kindof sucks. But alrighty. Imma try. Its just I dont want staggered because of the lack of not being able to rotate the tires. the offset of the rims are all the same I think, but the lip size is diff. weird

tell them the underlined part.

now, if they get huffy with their customer service... then i think its time to break out the angry dude. but.. until they escalate it, keep him caged. lol

I'm on the same boat as you, yesterday I picked up my wheels and I got the wrong offset. This is the second time they mess up my order. Also I waited 13 weeks for a different set before this SMH

Discounted but still cost a ALOT. I'd hit them up and tell them about the mistake, no biggie.

SOrry bout the late response. Yea sponsored means they are free or discounted. As deadbolt stated, they were still pretty procey but they are 3piece wheels. I got them for less than 50% of the price of them. They go for 1400+ each rim. I got them for 2200 (all 4).

LoL corrected your % calculation.

In laughing because hero782 (Omar) went through a similar problem. It's funny how both incidents happen at the same time, from 2 different shops.

It kindof looks like the e&g grille, jus with the Forgiato emblem in the middle. You can go onto the website and look @ the grilles they have for cars and trucks now. Still not sure if i want the grille but we will see
