Yes, yes I did buy some wheels back on the 7th. When we first mounted the tires we couldn’t get them to balance out. When I got back to San Jose I stopped by Rennwerks (on the 8th) and dropped them off to be balanced. I got a call soon after telling me that they couldn’t balance them because they were bent:
Since there seems to be some difference of opinion on what “bent” means I decided to get a concrete number.
The problem is even with a concrete number I couldn’t get a number out of Panasport as to what they should be. I found a blurb in a GM service manual that the axial run out of an aluminum wheel should be no more than 0.030″. Well these were at 0.041″, 0.052″, 0.053″, and 0.066″. When I set up one of the Work Equips as a control to make sure the issue wasn’t in the wheel bearings it measured out at 0.003″. I guess now I try to find someone who can fix them or try to get my money back on them. I paid top price for them expecting a nice set of wheels. So far these need to be both refinished and straightened.
