    I didnt see it on here and it is a little complicated to figure out but
    up-garage.com always has killer prices on stuff and the conversion from yen to $ is not bad. I have contacts in Japan to get stuff shipped over and can really be worth it on wheels you would want to buy from rb or memoryfab

    As far as parts go i get all my parts from titanium touch. I actually setup a wholesale account with them. I think last i checked I can get 2-3" 17" bbs rs lips for around 200 per lip shipped from Germany.

    felgen garage is an insane rip off I would never buy anyhting from them ever.

    just matz is good for the bbs rs caps, the ebay company( not hoffman) is really good to deal with Ive had caps from germany show up in less than a week

    memory fab is good but if you are dealing with them let me know and if we can get a group buy together a lot of times if I pick up 3 or more sets you can get a nice discount ( they are 45 min drive for me)

    I bought a set from them before they moved to their new location, I received the wheels and one wheel had 3 large bends in the polished lip...and a large crack in the barrel. (Also all 4 had a large repair weld in the barrel to begin with). When after telling this to them they basically told me that I would need to send the wheel back to them, on my dime, they would fix it and then ship it back.

    After explaining that it was not my fault and as a seller they are responsible for any non-disclosed damage...I agreed to pay for the shipping to them, only because I was tired of arguing. So I took the hit for shipping a wheel from Florida to Cali, and sent the wheel off for repair. After 3 months of going back and forth, and long periods of time between me shipping and him forgetting to ship my "fixed" wheel back to me...I received it and it was worse than before.

    I was told that he physically used a hammer to fix the dents on the lip and that "wheels are stronger when they are fixed, than when they are first made". Which makes absolutely no sense. So after months of arguing and being let down...I finally opted for a full refund. He then told me that I was responsible to pay for return shipping or I couldnt get my money back. Great customer service right? RBWheels fucks up and it's up to the buyer to pay for everything. So there goes $100 for shipping all 4 wheels back to Cali.

    I agree that they do have a nice selection of wheels, and if I ever find something that I like from them again I might actually purchasing something else. But this is not the first case that I've heard where they ship shit out and do not disclose damage...or where they switch around offsets and send out the wrong ones. The customer service is horrible and Jack (the owner) is absolutely clueless, but hey...if you can afford used LM's or something expensive, they are the place to go.

    A few pics.







    and the great hammer repair

    tunershop.com (for wheel parts. outter lips, bolts, stuff of that nature)

    On a side note, I purchased my wheels from RB Wheels. And though they were not as fucked up as mattphi's they do have curb rash that's almost hard to believe. But then again I had a kid ask me if I was affraid of hitting a curb with wheels that poked. I asked him if he was really that bad at driving and had a good laugh about it.

    I remember you from when I had my 240's

    Too bad I can't find shit on upgarage since they updated the layout a while ago. Do you have access to a lot of dope 5x120 wheels there or are they all 5/4x114.3?

    im not sure if this is where i should post this but..

    my current wheels are 16x7 16x8 enkei racing s both are +32. they are 2 piece wheels in which the face detaches from the lip/barrel, which has 40 bolts.

    i'm looking for a 9 inch ride barrel which will work with the faces i have that are 40 hole, do any of you know if something like this exists? i have the correct face so all i need is 2 16x9 40 hole barrels.

    thanks

    Found my Work Eurolines for sale on my350z.com classified forums, you see some nice rare sets on there from time to time with really nice offsets and widths

    Is tunershop.com the only source for 18" Super RS lips?

    I think that would look amazing on my 350Z.
