Futek what the heck?
I bought some style 66 rims for a project, which every one keeps telling me is not going to work, and it turns out that they aren't OE. Just took of the cracked rubbers and seen this big shiny Futek sticker, "passed inspection. recall with the label if any problems with strength" has anyone here used 'Futek' wheels before and what they thought? least I get life time warranty.

P.S, anyone know a good wheel refurb shop in Ottawa?

I was psyched to hear that... if an Asian company gives it life time warranty then you know its good. Any know a good rim painter/refurb shop in Ottawa, I wanna get them redone in 'Black Chrome'.

not even. the head office is in taiwan but the factory is in china.

they're extremely thorough when describing the factory; the # of workers, the area of the land on which the factory is, the area of the factory buolding, the machines they use, the qc equipment they have, their monthly production capacity...

Oh yeah it is but their sticker says made in Taiwan. Guess they didnt want the bad 'made in China' rep.
