    Kinda bullshit that the creators of this wheel don’t wanna take into consideration how it would turn out if they developed a -38 17x9 version of the SR8’s. Smh.

    I’m saying that you could develop one and people would eat it up just as much as the other wheels that were developed.

    We could do a lot of things, but there are reasons behind every single decision we make. We bet on what we know and not on what the consumers think we should do.

    C'mon now, let's not go and twist that around. Not everyone is capable of making a business decision. It's easy to tell companies what they should or should not do when their money isn't on the line.

    You made a poll for this last year and only 6 folks responded to it. What does that tell you brotha? You have to read in between the lines. Sometimes what is not said, tells me a lot and/or reaffirms what's we're thinking.

    A lot of the people Are not on Tacomaworld. The majority of them are on Instagram. What if you put out that vote there on YOUR page to see if you gain any traction? Just sayin. You have the followers.

    its different when you have your own resources and livelihood on the line man. you cant make decisions just based on your own wants or the results of an internet poll.

    You know damn well they would have banked on that investment. Every 17x9 they developed did.

    if you havent realized it by now, part of their business model is *exclusivity* through scarcity. If they mass produced every wheel they would be like every other wheel manufacturer. Meaning they would make money in the short term but their brand would suffer longer term damage if they did as you suggested.

    You realize how high the demand is? They would sellout every time.. exclusive yes, that’s fine. But keep the normal colors in stock and the exclusive colors limited. Thats bullshit how their marketing scheme is. Supply the demand!!!!
