Re: FR Viper 22 UPDATE!!!

Man you have come this far dont give up now! I say get it in writing that he is swapping the fronts out in less than 4 months for free as long as the spacer is not that big then roll with it..TRUST me when i say if u settle for something u dont want you wont be happy bro!!! I been through 3 sets of rims and tires in 14 months until i finally found what i liked lol...

Re: FR Viper 22 UPDATE!!!

I definately agree, I really like those viper 22's and have been waiting to see yours mounted before I pull the trigger after winter.

Paying that much money for something you dont "LOVE", isnt worth it.. I suppose putting the spacer on for a few weeks wont be too bad, but make sure you have it on paper saying you can trade in the front two when he gets the right sized ones

Good luck!

listen to me, mr impatient with chrome 20s........
I agree. 1/8" spacers are no big deal. And that's probably all you'll need. Shit... I'm runnin 1 1/4" spacers right now! (talk about unsafe! Lol) And ran them all last winter too. Just make sure the spacers are hub centric. Make sure you torque them down after a couple hundred miles of driving too

I agree it's shitty that FR dropped the ball on this one. But I think they gave you good options.
Remember, you're the 1st person to get these wheels, things could be worse!

Re: FR Viper 22 UPDATE!!!

Damn good luck...if they will give you 2 new fronts when they fix the spacer issue, and the spacer you will use is not unsafe I say f-it and roll the 22's for a couple months with the spacers. Then like the guys are saying get it in writing that they will swap them once the problem is fixed

All I know is the 22's will look sweet, and will this much time/money invested I think it is worth it to keep going...I can't think of better looking 22's so unless there is another wheel out there that you love I would stick it out with the Vipers.. Good luck and i wont say anything else about pics!!
