Exactly, you receive the new wheels and they give you a reasonable amount of time to send your OEM's back (1-2 weeks), they give you a postage slip for UPS (you pay for it) and just call UPS and they pick them up.
You have to give a core deposit which will be refunded to your credit card once they receive your wheels and inspect them for damage.

Re: Chrome wheel exchange?

Thats pretty cool. Can you put them on yourself or do you need to take to an auto shop? I have no clue about any of this.

Re: Chrome wheel exchange?

If you can mount and balance a set of tires in your garage, go for it. I however would take them to a local auto shop. I doubt the exchange company cares how you get your set back to them, as long as they get them in good shape.

Re: Chrome wheel exchange?

When you make the purchase they charge you twice the shipping (90.00 each way) and include a pre-paid shipping sticker for the return, just paste it on the boxes and call for a pick up. Its not the kinda mod that Im stressing over, the OEM is fine however I got the White and with the Overland chrome trimmings I think it would look nice (just my opinion).... And you will need a tire shop to swap the rubber and re-balance the wheels.

Re: Chrome wheel exchange?

From what I understand they'll fit a non SRT WK (clearance wise) but the offset on the WK2 is different, so it'll stick out slightly from the well.
