    4 Wheel Parts just called and said they screwed up and my rims that I ordered last week have been out of stock for a month...I had ordered 15x10 monster wheels in a black finish...they were cheap and i need steel rims to fit on my 3/4 ton front axle...aluminum wont fit because they'll hit the caliper bad.
    He offered to send me chrome ones in the same modular style at no extra charge ...but i'm not a chrome buff and they will rust quick here in maine.
    I guess I either take him up on the chrome ones or pull my money out and buy em elsewhere. They dont offer much else in a steelie with my bolt pattern in 15".

    I hate it when this happens /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    I just got some 15x8 Black Rock Crawlers from 4WheelParts. I think they are awesome. The black powder coating looks like it will hold up pretty good. If I were you I would not get the chrome.

    Well I ended up getting the pro comp chrome mods...a little impatient and 4wp were the only people with 15x10 8 lug steelies...everyone else had em on backorder.

    I guess I would have waited for a black set or a set of Eatons but I've had my brand new SSR's in the basement for a month now. My 3/4 ton axles are in the barn and its getting cold here in maine.

    thanks for the replys guys
    I guess I was just venting....I find this to be a normal thing when buying from 4WheelParts /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Sell them, buy the black ones from somewhere else. Whats the price difference? I might need some 8 lug wheels if I can find D44 cheap, and I have a 14b with disk brakes in the garage. Later, Jeremiah
