Trouble with polished finish 22 fr's????
 
I was wondering if anyone is running 22" polished factory repos. here? I ordered a set and when I got them, the finish was horrible. Was wondering if this was a common problem or if I just got a bad set. Sent them back and am trying to decide whether to try another set or just go with the competition grey.

what exactly was wrong with the finish?

You could see the scratches from the machining process. Looked like they didn't get polished out completely. They also had black pitted spots in them

That's probably normal for a polished cast wheel from China. Atleast they let you return them. The chrome omes are dipped and it fills all the voids from the casting process.

Kind of what I was thinking. Haven't heard of anyone else having this problem. Not expecting quality of a high end billet wheel but these weren't even up to the standards of the factory polished 18's.

Yep, that is because they are cast in china. The oem polished wheels are forged..... In the USA

Yeah, can't see there being a problem with the other finishes. I think the only one you can see it in is the polished. Need to make a decision by tomorrow whether to take my chances on another set of polished or just go with the grey. Supposed to hear from Jason at FR in the morning. Ready for wheels! Don't wanna have to send another set back.
