Well anyways keeping u guys posted, I called them back to check up on how the rims are doing, and he says he hasnt been working on them since i was there (tuesday) but he's going to start again tomorrow. So I said don't bother im coming to get them tomorrow. Going to be sending them off to precision rim tomorrow unless you guys know of better people for the job? money isnt really my concern right now so if you guys know anybody please let me know! And I ask you recommend by experience not because u heard it might be good.

Thanks

Jay

Ahhh shit I should have checked this earlier!
Well im gonna pm you my number. And give me a call when ur able to meet up. I can always come pick it up.

P.s. Thank you very much! greatly appreciated!


P.s.s I took the rims to precision, but he said he has 300sets of wheels he has to do. So I'm centemplating bringing them home, just painting the centers silver. Putting them together myself. Or else Im going to get them back just in time to park the car. What do you guys think? p.s. the lips are polished so those wont have to be done?

Thanks

Jay

carcones won't touch 3 piece wheels. And I haven't heard the greatest things about them.

don't go to precision, your wallet will thank you and you'll avoid high blood pressure later.

My buddy had some ZR1 wheels done at Carcone's and I was really surprised at how shitty the job was.

The clear coat around the lip of the rip was actually off center and crooked. The silver painting of the inside of the wheel didn't even line up to the outer part. Wish I had pictures. It was really obvious they didn't take the time to do it right.

This was one two rims, one worse than the other.

Yeah I'm thinking of just painting the centers silver, and putting them together myself! Honest truth, I'm tired of spending money on my car!!!
