UPDATE:

The wheels arrived into port yesterday (June 15th). They were scheduled to arrive at our warehouse today. I received a call earlier that the terminal the container is coming through has been shut down by the port while they generate a new code of some kind. This means every container that came off that ship is on hold. I am waiting on a call to find out when this issue is resolved.

We are working on rescheduling the delivery for tomorrow. It may arrive late in the afternoon as I offered to pay the overtime/premium fee to a driver if they're willing to bring it out even at night tomorrow, as I want to avoid all possible delays I have control over. If it comes late tomorrow, then UPS won't pick up until Friday.

These terminal delays happen, and it's a port issue. I'll keep this thread updated every time I get new news. We're ready here to receive the container. It will be broken down, inventoried, and turned around for shipping in a matter of hours. Everyone will receive their tracking numbers the day the wheels arrive.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I apologize for the delays. luckily we are only one, possibly two days off of schedule.

Thank you,

Container arrives in approx 30 minutes. I'll be busy packaging these up and getting them out. UPS has an empty truck on stand by. Everyone will receive a tracking number by 6pm pacific tonight.

got them yesterday! Thanks Eddy! Not sure if I'll have a chance to get them mounted until August since I have to go play soldier for a little while. I'll be sure to post pics ASAP though!

What's with these weak stories? Go get'em mounted up, and show 'em off!

Mr Randonquickness seems like a legit story.

My excuse is that I bought 2 sets of tires and a set of JRZs for my M3 track car last month (along with these wheels), and then spent last weekend at Barber playing. If only I could figure out how to file a claim with BP to get a piece of that $20 billion......

get this! I actually drove an hour to my friends shop with the back rims and tires to mount them and his tire machine broke! We did notch out my upper shock mounts about 5-6 mm so I have enough camber to clear those 245/40/18's without having to jack up the front coilovers 4x4 style. I'm getting it aligned tomorrow morning and I'll report back with the specs!

today's alignment: after notching the front upper shock mounts and the coilovers low enough to tuck tires under the fenders a little it sits at -1.5 but I can't remember how much I had before and didn't get the print out. I think it was ~1 degree? So 5-6 mm notching gave me ~1/2 degree extra without adding camber plates. The stock rear, slammed with kw v1's (purple spring perches removed) is sitting at -1.9 degrees.

I opened mine to inspect them yesterday. I think I may just put them in the living room to admire instead of mounting them up...............

to prevent confusion, I'm locking this thread to keep from being bumped further.

Maxnix is correct. Our most recent Group Buy ended 2 weeks ago as promised
