Re: Stock Wheels Back On :(

Refund was refused by Howie Industries in Illinois. In Paul Howie's defense he is stuck in the middle, however a great distributor IMO would do the right thing and offer to do a refund if the manufacturer did not step up.

He has passed the request along to IForged but expects it to be denied.

Re: BEWARE*** IForged and Forgestar wheels :(

The lawyer is an option I don't want to take. I want iforged to acknowledge this is not a proper design for an SUV and refund my purchase price. I'm not asking for any of my additional expenses. I simply want to purchase a proper set of wheels suitable for a performance SUV.

Often a replacement product is offered to our customer, but they insist they don't want it and ask for credit. I always give them credit.

The distributor will remain unnamed until the verdict is reached tomorrow. If he makes good I will sing praise and promote him. If he refuses then my real campaign starts. Facebook, Instagram, and every forum I can think of.
I'd stick with VIA marked wheels if you take a trade... JWL indicates mfg self-certification, VIA indicates Japanese gov't agency testing if I recall...

Re: BEWARE*** IForged and Forgestar wheels :(

Currently waiting to hear back from IForged's engineer. More than likely I will take the refund. All of the designs they offer that I like are thin split spokes. I don't think it would be wise to go that route.

The problem is all of the other brands that I like are thin split spokes. I'm hoping if they are monoblock they can adjust the front to back thickness of the spokes to give it the strength necessary to support my vehicle. I'm not sure what to do but IMO it is very very difficult to get wheels that look right on the Jeep. I'm not a fan of 5 spokes on the WK2, unless they are wide split.

I hate to shout out Chad with black ops again... But he may be able to design something for you AND back it up with proper engineering/testing

Re: BEWARE*** IForged and Forgestar wheels :(

Here's the other one. Having problems posting 2 photos in one post still learning!

image.jpg

In my research both my dealer and the manufacturer assured me that both wheels would work on the 2014 jeep SRT. But be careful there are a few lines of Niche wheels for sale but the ones you need are the MONOTECH AN YOU WILL SEE THE PRICE DIFFERANCE but don't just take my word on it do your own research an see what they tell you. Oh with the price increase you pick the color as well as The finish...

I wound up getting the MISANO in a Blk Chrome.
