Default Saga of Wheels

Hello all,

I put in a custom order for Forgestar size and color on November 25th.

- The Wheels were part of a group buy so we waited til everybody was in, then submitted the group order.
- My size wheel was back ordered, wait more.
- My wheels did not pass quality inspection, wait.
- The wheels are powder-coated the wrong color, and poorly done at that.
- They are now in the process of stripping their sh*t powder-coat job, and putting on the CORRECT color ...PROPERLY, wait.
- I have been waiting for 12 weeks so far.... *sigh

That is all, just needed to vent.

Update:

After the wheels went back to the powdercoater, they tell me that the red color i ordered is not a "viable option". Wouldn't you have told me that 3 months ago when i f*cking ordered them?

Damnit there's some bad service out there.

They say they're going thru their entire webpage to remove "Textured Red" from available options.

looks like they need to get a new powder coater!

If you ask them to credit you I can hook you up with a powder coater that can do any color you want.

We're using the same PowderCoater that Forgestar uses... although with less than stellar results.
