FR Viper 22 UPDATE!!!

Well I just got off the phone with David the owner and he told me that the Vipers need spacers in the front and that the lug nuts that hes sending me might not fit because the rims rest on bolts other than the hub or something. This is my first time ever buying rims so I was expecting these things to go straight on with no problem, cuz I don't like mickey mousing stuff so now I'm starting to lose interest in this whole thing and I'm almost ready to say screw it. I dont know maybe i just need to be reminded of how great they are gonna look on my whip.......I just don't know. I think the whole 6 month wait including the extra week I'm gonna have to wait because of this goddamn typhoon in the Philippines. I was supposed to get them yesterday and now I gotta suffer another whole week.

Somebody help me by explaining to me that all this news I just got is nothing to worry about and that everythings gonna fit great w/o issues. Because if its gonna be a headache imma send them things back and get my damn $2,300 back.

Re: FR Viper 22 UPDATE!!!

first off, how thick a spacer will it need......i have some 1/8 i could part with.......but could be any size.

that will help explain what he is saying about lug nuts.

Re: FR Viper 22 UPDATE!!!

I honestly dont know what I'd do. They dropped the ball on these...I know that. theres no way they should need spacers. The WK calipers are not that big.
