Default Progress ????

I stopped by my Tires Plus dealer on Tuesday and he called American/Chinese Racing .....again. I am happy to report my loooong overdue wheels are finally in the USA, somewhere between the left coast and Omaha. AR's freighter (Chinese one-lung fishing boat) finally arrived in California last weekend......a week later then I was told when I called AR myself 2 1/2 weeks ago. I wonder if they use a Abacas in their Accounting Dept.

Anyway, my wheels are here, somewhere in the USA, only 2 1/2 months after the first promised delievery date With my luck and with way AR operates, they will, no doubt, ship one wheel on 4 different trucks.

evil thought: maybe they've been waiting for your wheels to arrive, 'cause that's what they'll use on the truck that delivers 'em.......

That is an evil thought.....but, at least that way they might get here. It has been an additional 2 months (to the day) when they first promised delivery of them.

I am waiting for some A/CR 16" Areos. They first promised delievery on May 11. Since then they have pushed the date back 4 times, with no real explaination. Although the chinese make a great wheel, the company, AR, does not have much, if any, honesty, integrety or professionalism. And those are the good points. BBB will hear.

I hope to post some pictures of them before the snow flies

He probably did if it was an online order! good news is that you can get your money back!

I just looked at them and they are going to look REALLY good on a PT! Good Choice!

Thanks, PT, I was after the Retro look like the Torqs that they make, but they don't make them for a FWD car. The Aeros were the next closest thing I could find. The wheels look great on. It is just that the compny sucks in customer care.
