Ordered Wheels/Tires

I just pulled the trigger at my local Discount Tire. I will update this thread once everything is setup. It should all be here in 1 week. They are having a nice Memorial Day sale. Getting almost $300 back in Visa gift cards. I finally made the purchase after much research and running (32K) my OEM Forteras (5/32 - 6/32 tread).

Re: Ordered Wheels/Tires

Congrats on that purchase. So all this Discount Tire stuff has me thinking. I have been considering SRT wheels for my Summit. I would obviously prefer OEM, but the price of a set with tires is astronomical. So im thinking about replicas as well. So Discount Tire can get replica wheels for us? I would want 20x10 Spider monkey reps. Not only that but Discount Tire is the ONLY wheel shop I will let touch my vehicles. I like how they do things there, plus they always have good promotions and 0% on their card if I want to put the purchase on there.

BlckWK2- From the screen shots that the OP posted, it looks like he purchased the SRT replica wheels from Factory Reproduction, not from Discount Tire. He ordered the tires through Discount Tire.

Im not so sure, because then if you look at his tire picture thats from tirerack, but yet his original post says he pulled the trigger at Discount Tire. So from that I gathered he simply used those pictures to show what he bought, not necessarily from where. BlackWK2, give us more details and pics when available.

Thanks

Re: Ordered Wheels/Tires

Discount Tire sells Factory Reproduction wheels.
That's where I purchased both of my sets. They price match so find the best deal out there before you call them.

I had issues with balancing Hankooks so I switched to the Yokohama's.

Re: Ordered Wheels/Tires

Are you sure it's the tires and not the wheels.. I bought 4 from Fact Repo and they where all out of round. Sent them back... I know they changed manufactures and the SRT reps would not fit with Brembos now they have gone back to the original mold from their previous company and they fit with the Brembos. They had pallets of bad wheels... Why are you getting the gloss and not the satin or matte? I have seen neither one just wondering what looks better in person?

Didn't you then order from Quadratec who sells Factory Reproductions wheels?
So you still have FR wheels.

Yes I did, but they were old stock from before Factory Reproductions change suppliers. After a while they had complants the srt reps didn't fit over the Brembo's and where poorly made. Now they have gone back to the original supplier. They have gloss black in stock from the new "old" supplier that will fit with Brembo"s but it will be a some time before they have the satin which is what I want for winter wheels.
