My Odd Story Ordering Rims

So, last week I ordered Style 219M 18" rep rims from Tuning Logic. They arrived Friday and I got home Saturday excited to open up the boxes and get them on my car.

Well, when I opened all the boxes, this is what I found:



So, I emailed them and asked if they could send me my 4th missing rim and I would send back the wrong rim they sent me. They told me they did not have anymore of my rims and would not be able to get anymore. So they issued me a refund and told me to keep the rims.

Don't really know what to do at this point...

Hahaha I'm dumbfounded as to what you should do... Sell the m6 rep and use the money to buy the 4th wheel?

Pretty sweet you got free rims

Sell them on craigslist or ebay and buy a full set somewhere else. I'd consider the selling price a good subsidy towards the correct rims!

I think its pretty sweet too, but don't know where I'd look to find one 18" rep rim...I guess I could put up a WTB ad, but I doubt I'd find just one.

I'm thinking about just putting up a FS ad for the one M6 rep(19") and an ad for the 3 others...Hope someone needs/wants them.

You probably won't have too much trouble getting rid of them.

I wish this would happen to me haha

This is pretty hilarious. I'd think it would be pretty easy to find a matching 4th wheel, no?

Hah, yes it is pretty funny but disappointing at the same time. I'll have to do a WTB ad to see if someone has an extra rim on here.

You got a full refund so any money you get from the rims will put you on top

Nice wheels w/exception to the odd-ball as mentioned buy another set and sell those on eBay. It might take awhile but there is always someone looking for a replacement wheels.

Those are actually Style 260M wheels, the Euro version of the Style 219M wheels! See the link below:

http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/

I have seen a lot of those and Vortex Tuning used to carry them, but they were not as attractive stateside as they were in Europe. Check out this thread:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...=164332&page=2

At any rate, G/L with your search and congrats on the nice threesome...

OBTW: was that a staggered set or square setup? It helps to know which wheel you need, front or rears.

Wow free wheels? Just buy 1 and call it a day. Sell the odd ball to someone on here who may have curbed/ dented/bent/scratched theirs.

I tried searching for this rim, but all I could find were the 19's...anyone know of a store selling the 18 x 8.5 ?

That's hilarious and I am equally as surprised they refunded and didn't want them back. Does that mean they knew they sent you a fourth wheel that was wrong? Ha. Anyways, whatever you do, you're better than where you started. Good week.
