Called Edge Racing and my Flik Artic Silvers 18x8.5 are shipping today  :D .  Should get them in 4-5 business days.  Also thanks to Winston's for his wisdom on tires.  It looks like I will get a better deal and a better tire from Big O than I would have with Costco.  Way to go Win. :D  :wink:

Expected arrival date is 7/7.  Also ordered the Falken's yesterday from Big O (thanks again Win), they should be in today.  They are going to hold on to them until my wheels come in.  The guys at Big O are really cool.  I can't wait. :D  :D  :D

It turns out that this will be no go.  I received the wheels and they shipped the wrong bolt size (5x100).  I guess you could say it was the straw that broke the camels back.  I have had issues with the company since doing business with them.  One day they told me that they had received the money order and that the wheels would ship and to call the next day for tracking info.  Then when I call back and speak to the same guy, he tells me that the money order had not been received and to call back later in the day.  I do call back and they say that they "just" got the money order and it will be shipped out that day.  That day turned into two days later.  Then to have the invoice say that it is 5x112, but the wheels sticker says 5x100.  In this time I have ordered the tires and since they are special order, I cannot return them.  Hence my "For Sale" thread.  It sucks, but the company told me to box everything up and they will have UPS come and pick them up.  When they receive the wheels, they will issue a riembursement.  We will see how that goes.

I am sure you are asking your self, why not use a different company.  Lets just say I am frustrated and tired from this and wish to wash my hands of it.  If nobody picks up the tires then I will hold onto them and get wheels in the future.  Who knows?.  Sorry for the bad news.

Dave, I just saw the bad news on the for sale thread.  That is a bummer man.

If you can, I would just forge ahead.  I had the same problem with Wheel Boutique.  They were freaking clueless, and said that they no longer made my wheels.  I then went to Treadepot.com and they were much more willing to take my money, and they ended up being cheaper too...

I hope you end up getting your wheels.  Maybe save the tires for Chas.  He will need them when he gets his sweet wheels from doing his commercial in Cali...

Sorry to hear the bad news Dave. Did you work w/ Sacha or Oscar at edgeracing.com? Those two guys used to be on clubb5.com all the time. Didn't they used to sponsor the Wheel and Tire Forum? Maybe this is why we haven't seen them around. Assuming they do have the 5x112 Artic in stock, I guess I'd just wait for them. I don't know if you'd get your money back on those tires.

Good plan Dave, most businesses want to make things right and I know Sasha has done good by many on CB5.  It's easy to get emotional when you are spending hard earned money and it is for something you want so bad.

Hopefully everything will work out in your favor and we'll be seeing you soon with some stylin new kicks.

Hey Dave, sorry to hear about the problem...businesses sometime suck that way, but as Jay said they usually desire to make things right so don't let them get a way with crappy service!
