Anyway, waiting for my nephew to give me a hand. Be patient .

Proof I'm not bullshi**ing you :








What's under the cover? I'm guess a Beemer...

Stupid me didn't look behind the wheels to reconfirm, but everywhere I've looked, including the auction where I bought my wheels, said 20x10 +50 offset. By the way, the rears look perfect, and barely clear on the inside, so can't do any wider at the rear either, without looking funny. The only bummer was the extra 15 lbs per corner; haven't driven the truck yet, but hope it's not noticeable behind the wheel. By the way, the exact weight of the wheels/tires is 67.2 lbs per OEM 20" wheel, and 82.2 lbs on the SRTs with Scorpion Verde tires. A 22%+ increase. Substantial, in my book.

Good guess (K1300S). Best sport-touring bike IMO.

Pics are ready folks. Truck is all dirty, but wheels look awesome IMO, even though front wheels stick out a hair more than I like. Rears are perfect. And both are basically identical in diameter (SRT wheel is a bit crooked in the photo, so looks a bit smaller, but it's not), just like the math suggested. Here are the pics so you can Judge for yourselves how it looks:









And a bit of sad news. One of the tires is flat. And wheel is messed up where the sensor is, so something was obviously wrong with it. It was flat when it was installed. Aired it to 37, and a few hours later is was 20 psi. Just aired it again hoping to find the leak at the valve and/or sensor nut, but no luck. Geez. Will have to take it to Discount Tire on Monday to see what the hell it is. Checked it visually and didn't see anything. And can't hear the telltale of a nail hole or something. Just hope wheel is not defective. As far as TPMS goes, no need to reset anything; after about 5 miles, the system picked up the new sensors, and are pretty accurate . As soon as system reset, I got the flat tire symbol with '20' blinking, and all others 37, just like what I set them at. Great. Take care gang.

Oh, forgot to say the seller on eBay is DIRECT PERFORMANCE, and are the only ones selling full sets on eBay. BUYER BEWARE. Wheels and tires were NOT like they came from the factory, and wtih no miles, like I was told. Most wheels had slight damage from obvious R&R, 2 different sizes of TPMS nuts, and several chips from obvious use. And worst of all, a flat tire that I suspect will be a defective wheel (knock on wood). We couldn't do the deal thru eBay because they didn't take credit cards, and Paypal doesn't handle business credit cards, had to wire the money.

If some of you are considering buying from them, I'd start a thread in the regional forums asking for somebody local to check them out for you first. And/or do it thru eBay so you have some recourse, at least from negative feedback. I once had a problem, and although eBay/Paypal ruled in my favor (duh!, I was robbed), then never gave me a freaking penny, so their 'guarantee' is only if they collect from the seller first. Nice piece of mind, huh? So don't rely on that folks. But it'd certainly help. Good luck folks. It's a zoo out there.

Sweet. Not to get side tracked... but I race an S1000RR... have a 1200GSA, an LT and Ducati Hypermotard. I used to have a K12R. Can't have ALL the fun on 4 wheels...

Looks great. That sucks you paid a premium for them and didn't get what you expected.

I like the 20's that came on my overland better than the SRT wheels. I am thinking about powder coating them black.

I know man. HATE when dishonest sellers misrepresent what they're selling. And charging you according to the description, instead of the reality. Turns out the tire had a big hole (it's being fixed now). SOBs didn't even fix it before selling it. Geez. They advertised the wheels like you'd get them if you bought a new SRT. Yeah, right! I'd surely accept wheels with scrapes and chips, and a flat tire. Oh well. Live and learn. Just beware of that eBay seller folks (Direct Performance).

It was all vinyl wrapped, negotiated with the purchase price, but wasn't done right man. It started peeling off right away. Took it back to dealear and they redid it again. Better this time, but not to my satisfaction. And this was a specialty shop, with the best vinyl material. I understand it's almost impossible to do it any better without dismantling the car to remove all parts, so might remove it at some point. Plus never seen any material that can shrink on 90 curves, like on door handles (it's wrinkled there). Will leave it as is for now. Bottom line is don't do it if you want it to look OEM. And removing all interior panels to do a proper job (remove, sand, prime, paint, and reinstall) is not worth doing on a new car IMO.

They call me that wheel is ready. Apparently no more problems. Am crossing fingers there won't be a vibration at highway speeds or something. Hey, any idea how much to ask for my 20" wheels/tires/TPMS? Only 3K miles. They look almost like new. No rash of any kind. Just a few chips overall from normal use, and a superficial scuff that was there since new. Thanks.

To be honest, that's the best bang for your buck man. SRT wheels look pretty nice, but $4,350 is A LOT of money. I was hoping at least they weigh the same as stock, but 15 lbs more per side does not justify the expense IMO. But hey, I consider this a valuable service to the forum membership here, so it was worth it . Take care gang.
