Pics will come tomorrow. Unfortunately the seller was a freakin idiot and didn't pack them well. He also lied about the condition of the wheels.(small dent on lip and peeling clear coat) Some people can be so dishonest. His name is Ian M. Marlow. I'm actually thinking of having some of my New Jersey connections pay him a visit<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> Maybe not though, after all it is Christmas. Anyways I'm just venting.....I hate dishonest people. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Finally got the bbs wheels on (volvos70turbo)

Sorry to hear about that. If the seller lied about the condition of the rims, you have every right to return it to him. I would report it to ebay and claim it. I hate people like that. What was his feedback rating?

Re: Finally got the bbs wheels on (mike_c70)

Hi Mike:<br> Unfortunately I had the seller end the auction early, so the purchase<br>was not made using ebay. I thought he was honest but I guess I was wrong. He packaged the wheels like a monkey, one huge box with two wheels inside. He only used various scraps of cardboard and bubble wrap to protect them. To top this all off, he wrote me an email to "go f##k myself" This got me really pissed, but after my great christmas dinner I have calmed down and decided to let things go.(not worth it) So now I'm looking at around 240 dollars to fix the two wheels. Oh yeah, Yannis and Kai were right, the wheels do look like sh*t!!! Oh well, live and learn.<p>By the way, one of the wheels had a dent on the front lip. When i went to balance the tire/wheel, they said it was fine and that the bend was only cosmetic. Is it okay to have bends on the front lip? Also, the clear coat is peeling off some of the polished lip, anyone know if this will rust?<br>Thanks and happy holidays.<br>

Well, that just put a twist into things. Sorry to hear about that. It comes to show you what kind of people live in this world, dishonest, rude and absolutely immature. What happened to survival of the fittest? Besides, Al Qeada, these kind of people should be taken out as well. Oh yeah, add Martha Burke to it as well.<p>Well, good luck with those rims. It looks like you spent more than you wanted.
