If you haven't read my thread about Wheelmax.com, please never ever buy rims from them. They have the worst customer service and workers working for them. Here are pics of my damaged rims. They won't let me buy 1 or 2 rims, I have to buy all 4! Well here they are.


<b>Front passenger side =(</b>






<b>Rear passenger side, not that noticeable but its there.</b>

Haha, I would of run on stock rims but my front tires were balding and my car failed inspection. I had a "R" sticker on my car and I needed to get tires so I can pass, so I picked up a set of these. I sold my stock ones so I had to run with these since January 18th. Oh wells, I guess I can use these for winter tires now and buy a new set of rims :)

My friend's sister had that happen to her in the bay area. She said she can get the city to pay for her rims, there is a long process to get it approved and time to get the money, but if you have time check it out. I think what she had to do was take pictures of the pothole from many different angles, take pics of her rims, and a few other things to show that it was the pothole that f'ed up her rim. Oh well, good luck man
