I ordered some new wheels and tires that came in today from Discount tire (www.tires.com
). I can't tell you which ones they are but I will be posting new pics in a few days
. I had origionally ordered the rage breakers with some tires. My total was $704 shipped and the site said that they were in low stock. i recieved a phone call two days later and they told me that the rage wheels had been out of stock for some time and they don't have any on order. This did not make me too happy, but we spent a good 15 minutes going through other rims on the site and I ended up getting rims that were $15 ($60 total) more than the breakers for the same price. So I ended up getting nicer wheels for the same price. On top of that, they have very nice customer service and shipping is free. The wheels came with the tires mounted on them and balanced - ready to put on. I also got some matching valve stems for $12.
After getting off the phone with the nice customer service representative, the packages were shipped from the factory in about 2 hours. Overall I give Discount Tire a 9 out of 10. -1 point for the inaccurate stock info on their site.
If you plan on using their services, make sure to give them a call to see if the items are in stock. If they have the wheels and tires you want, you would be crazy not to order from them
