Apology by OP
I re-read my post here and feel I owe apology for title. There is a definite quality issue with one rim, but that does not define a product line. Perhaps I just got a bad one....
On another note....I am sitting at Tire Rack now and the customer service here is just excellent. I am posting this before I find out if they can do anything for me but I am being treated very well and they are looking at options for me....I could not ask for anything more....regardless of outcome my business in the Tire and Rim department will now be solely handled by Tire Rack.
