    just got these shipped to me today. I know I'm probably beating a dead horse here, but I'm debating wheather or not I should go through the hassle of taking them to a tire shop to flip them. I requested the white letters in, but this is what I got. What does TW think?

    Looks wise flip them. GL trying to get the place you ordered them from to fix it, they might but more than likely you'll have to pay return shipping to them.

    Nope, no joke. Just called a local Firestone and their quote was 96.99. The vendor asked that I go to a smaller shop, I guess AKA hole in the wall. I don't want to go to them with the worry of them scratching my wheels up. The vendor says he's willing to work something out, so I'll see what happens. He's a nice guy, so I trust him.

    You would be surprised what a sharpie and a little time will do.

    My dad did that to his for the longest time because he didnt want to pay any money (50 bucks) to turn them the other way. Touch up as needed.

    Eh, I'd rather do it right and not have to touch them up often.

    Thanks, they're ATX Thugs



    Got a refund from the vendor to have them flipped. Awesome customer service. I'd recommend them and they have the best prices. Trust me, I've shopped for a looong time.

    Flip them. They did the same thing to me on my truck and I lived with it for about 2 days but everytime I walked up to the truck it pissed me off... So I had them change them to the way I wanted originally...
