APOETSLYRIC82 ripped me off
I purchased a set of 16' Focus wheels represented as "20,000 miles so basically new". The pictures showed four wheels that were covered with dirt that "was from being stored". The wheels I got were absolutley covered in grime - had to be high mileage. After an afternoons work I uncovered wheels that were badly chipped scratched and one had a dent on the rim. The seller won't return my call and he took three weeks to ship them so I am over the time limit to dispute the charge with Paypal. BEWARE this guy is running a scam.

how did you pay paypal credit or bank acct.
if credit call your credit card company.

thats foul!!! man that sucks that you cant dispute it with sure if you pleaded your case with paypal they'll listen cause thats a total false advert!!

The Paypal loophole
paypal gives you 3e0 days to escalate a dispute to a claim. It took three weeks for the wheels to get here and then it was a while before I had a chance to open them and clean them up (100k miles of grime). By then it was too late and Paypal won't let you reopen a claim or file a new one. (Called them - no luck). I guess I will have to pay to have them powdercoated.[:(]

man that sucks. I bought everything under my hood off the forum I try to befriend them before I let them know i'm interested in buying whatever. You get a better deal most of the time, and you get trust and honesty. However I guess every once in a while, especially on a board with 3 million members someone's gotta be a fake

Sorry to hear that bro. Look at the bright side, powdercoating kicks ass

but powdercoating is expensive!
thats sucks, thats why before you buy you ask them to clean them off and take some more pics, if i dont see the pics i want me no buy

I sold my 16's and I was like "f* you take my word for it, clean em yourself lol"
You can ask loudfocus01, he'll tell you :-D hahahahaha

Haha....yeah, they had quite a bit of brake dust on them when I got them, but they cleaned up nicely. I had no complaints. They look sweet on my car, and make some great winter rims.

my powdercoated job was about 30 a wheel, that was even with blasting!
