Can I borrow your wheels and tires?

This isn't going to work, but at least I can say I tried.

I have my pre-order in for a set of the EC7's and have already bought the tires that will be going with them... I believe we're suppose to see delivery in August.

Problem is, my current setup is half way dangerous... my front's are cording and I have a nail in my left rear that's forcing me to fill up twice a day. This sucks.

Does anyone have their stockers (w/tires) just laying around? Would you let someone borrow them for a month or so? Money is on the table... we would just have to agree to what. I don't have any long road trips in the works, other than my 48 mile total daily commute and a few trips up into the city.

Any takers?

I just got some serious de ja vois (sp?)

I did this to a friend of mine last year while waiting on backordered OZs for the same reason. I had chorded two tires and bubbled a third.


If I was in Cali I'd pay it forward but I'm on the other side of the country. Good luck finding someone. I know theyre out there.

Yeah, haven't had much luck finding anything, was hoping someone in the Bay Area could help. No sweat though, I don't keep extra wheels/tires around either (obviously) so it's not a huge surprise... I got myself into a few carpools at work this week and next, only driving when I have to.

I knew I needed tires along time ago but still waited... and then my inner asshole decided to buy the one set of wheels that isn't actually available yet. I'm an idiot... but oh well.

hopefully the wheels come in on time! Most wheel companies are a little late on their ETAs. Not sure how APEX customer service is but I hope they get them out to you soon. Best of luck.

I have a set of wheels/tires sitting in my backyard but I am not local enough haha. And the rears are pretty much bald lol
