Anyone know where I can get some bent & or cracked wheels fixed? Damn rock hard run flat tires bent two of my stock wheels, and cracked one of them.

I'm not looking for the nicest shop, or perfect wheels after the repairs. Just hoping to get the cracked wheel welded back together, and the bent ones straight enough to balance right on the machines.

To be honest I don't even know how bad the bent ones are, as Americas Tire company told me this. I ended up buying a set of VMR's.

Kind of dumb of them drill the valve hole on that location with the stem facing out the wheel. Design flaw for sure, never again will I buy another set of wheels from them

Damn. That is horrible. That valve hole has no business being in that location. I'd say return and get your money back if you can. good luck man.

Yeah man! That was my concern right after I saw where the hole was. Not my vendors fault as they did not make the wheel and since it's a special order I highly doubt they will be able to get me a refund. Anybody else looking to get Forgedstars, just be aware that these F14F's will have clearance issues. It can easily be fixed using a super short valve stem or 90 degree stem which I just ordered along with TPMS straps. It's just BS that Forgedstars didn't account for that and they're saying that I need adapters. I checked their adapters and they also seemed long and at $80 for the set I'd rather try something that I have more confident that will fit.

The F14Fs are the super deep concave wheels right?

Hey that's where mines located on my rims but I got special angled valve stem that poke out like an inch then angle out like an L shape and there's no place I know to get them locally, I had to buy mines online and wait for like 2 days.

I wonder if next time, just ride it out from a cone to regular intake to clear itself then put the cone intake back.

If I drove for months long while with CEL am I messing anything up? Air/fuel ratios...

well that was just k&n. My very very first intake i had on the car was just some random, no name, ebay pipe with a maf hole and a universal cone which gave me absolutely no errors. Then after a year I decided i should get a new filter, so i got the k&n and that is when the errors started. After i threw the k&n away, I sold the intake pipe and heatshield and got the simota cbII, again no errors. Sold that, then got the simota v2, still have it, no errors. Seems like errors came from k&n LOL. I think the CEL is air/fuel ratio.

CEL came from K&N also, I wanted to go with Green Filter USA but they don't have my needed size in stock and custom I think is $60 or $75. If there is another CEL, I'll give Green Filter a try later.

Sure is! I've already put in a order for a set of tpms straps, 1" short valve stem and a set of flush mount stem. Lets hope those will work! I tried the 90 degree valve and that's proven to work already but I don't like how I can only mount it one way.
