I would be careful and be sure to go through paypal with him. He offered me that set for $750+shipping and they were sold before I could respond.

Good luck.
Thank you so much for the tip. So far all communication we've had has been via email. He told me to give him over the weekend to find me a replacement/solution. I will call him first thing on Monday.

Re: 20" wheels from eBay

Quick update. The seller agreed to pay to have the wheel fixed. I got it back today from the shop and it looked brand spanking new. Took it to the tire shop to have it put back on....... and the guy scratched it AGAIN!. Huge black line around the edge from the mounting machine. Since it was the owner of the shop that was doing the job he right away apologized and kept the wheel to have it fixed yet again, this time at his expense. To say the least I'm bummed out because I will probably be running on my 17" "spare" tire for the rest of the weekend, but then again I guess things happen for a reason.

Re: 20" wheels from eBay

I was wondering what happened. Glad you got it fixed at his expense.

Did you have to bring up what I posted earlier or was he okay about dealing with it?

No not at all, he just mentioned that it was too expensive for him to find me a replacement plus the shipping charges so I just had him refund me part of what I paid him to fix the damage. He did it right away.

Now I just have to deal with my local tire shop to fix this headache again.
