    Any body ever ordered wheels and tires from this company? I recently got a quote that seems kinda hard to turn down! ALso does anyone have an estimate on duty that you will pay when brnging wheel s over the border?

    kind of gauging the field, not sure yet as I havent sold my bike or my car so I will probably be more serious after that. Right now I am looking at getting a set of machined 957's.

    bought some helos from him awhile back......seemed like a good deal, but that a##hole sent the wrong ones and blamed me for it. The site to choose the rims from has a few misprints in offsets and he guaranteed fitment before we made the deal. Then he offered to sell me the correct wheels for about a $100 cheaper and " I could sell the wrong wheels and maybe make a few bucks." Went thru paypal and lost..........luckily, sold them locally and got most of my money back. Would never buy from him again

    While it sucks that some have had a bad experience, not all have had with Mr. Wheel Deal. Most I have heard about have had good luck, and got great prices. The guy knows his shit. There may be a case where it goes bad, but most I have heard have turned out good.

    To me, if you say "guaranteed fitment" it should fit..........guaranteed!!! Steve is an a##hole and f**kin' liar. I will keep saying this to whoever wants another honest opinion on Mr. Wheel Deals

    It would be nice if he got on here...maybe someone can tell him about this site? Hilotoy, I'm sure if he hears your story he would make it better, especially if he really cared about customer service.

    In my opinion you should provide him with the amount of money you got for the wheels and he should make up the difference. I don't know the whole story but regardless your an unhappy customer and costing him buisness, I'm just wondering if he's aware of that.

    He had more than enough chances to make this right....... although this was awhile ago, and I made a few dollars, it was his attitude and not living up to his word. I'm old scool and your word is EVERYTHING. I am sure others have had some good success with !@#$(*$#, but I will tell whoever wants to listen not to buy from him.

    I just purchased a set of ATX wheels for a really good price and had them delivered within 3 days. Answered all my questions super fast even on a Sunday, I would do bizzness with him again. In the customer service bizz there will never be 100% perfect transactions and all we can do is hope the vendor does right by us
