We are at his mercy .

Thing is also , who is going to do this when he doesnt do it anymore?

2 weeks go by and we have nothing. I make a call and they say "oh there not done yet " .

We have been waiting on a set of BOZE Alloys for 6 weeks

Thats odd. Back in Jan (busy season) I had a set of 18x8,18x7 with black centers delievered in exactly 6 weeks door to door.
Nice to deal with too.

Well let's see, I ordered a set of Torq Thrust CL205's on May 25th and we still don't have them. I called them today to see what the status was and American Racing said we will call you back and let you know this afternoon. Its 10:08 PM right now.......I will not buy anything from American Racing again.

Ok so I called them this morning had to leave a message. Called twice. Finally at about 6 PM he calls me and tells me (Guy sounds like Lumberger from Office Space) "yea....well you see the guy I told to do your wheels 2 weeks ago yea....well you see he gave the info to one of his people and well their not even built yet....yea and by the way theres only 4 centers left to do one more set of wheels...yea and I'm not sure those are going to be yours.....but if they don't have them I'm going to see if I can get you money back......" Oh Gee Thanks...thats so nice... I told him so I pay you in full in May and you hold my money hostage until the end of summer (September and still holding) and now your saying that you still might not be able to get my rims and now you might see if you can get them to refund my money... (I hate them!!!) AMERICAN RACING SUCKS!!!

Man that sux. I can tell you this, the OLDEST order I have on my books right now is also CL205's from American from back in July. They are quoting me 10/31 before I will see them. Apparently, they have had a huge problem getting out 18" CL205's.

Well, I called him again today and he said he would call me back after his lunch. That was at 1:40 PM. Its 10:16 PM. No call. He told me that he would call me today and have it in cement <his words not mine>. Never called. Also yesterday he told me that there were only 4 centers left and didn't know if I was going to get them. It all started with those centers back in May..... They told me they had no centers and would be 4 to 8 weeks. Then when 8 Weeks pasted they told me they were waiting on paint and it would be 4 to 8 weeks again. Then he tells me that they can't get the paint they use from China and they wanted to know if I'd mind them painting them with a USA paint, I said no thats fine go ahead. They said Ok that should take about 2 weeks call me back in 2 weeks. Well it's 2 weeks later and now they saying they have no centers left. WHAT A GREAT COMPANY!

09-14-2007, 06:45 AM
Ok so he finally called me last night. He says the wheels are being built. He says they sent the centers out to get them painted and that everything should be done by the 24th. He says they should be to me by the 26th and if their not he says to call and scream at him and he will call and scream at California and then he'll have them sent next day air or 2nd day air. Will see how this goes. I hope for Brad's sake there here before the 26th. (Brad is the Salesman at American Racing):mad:

I totally agree.... I will let you know what happens. I'm thinking next set is going to be Fikse or HRE's. A lot more money but at least they get you the wheels when you pay for them.

Well, More good news....apparently the wheels were not made yet. He said that when they went to get the last four centers they were gone (wow imagine that). Now he says it will be another 4 weeks (for a total of 5 Months) before he can get a set made. He also says that he will give me one wheel for free. (Oh boy if you can even get them made.) I can't tell people enough to STAY AWAY from American Racing! This was a simple order, 4 CL205's 17x8, and 17x9.5 with 5.5 backspacing. This is like a bad nightmare that won't end! He says to me ok I am prepared to give you your money back...wow great money and no wheels and at least an 8 week wait from any other manufacture. Everytime I ask him to put me in touch with someone who is a boss, he tells me oh you'd just get the same answer I would. This is crazy....I won't be saying anything nice about American Racing when this is all done. :mad: :mad: :mad:

To those experiencing a difficult time dealing with a business.

I had some issues a couple of years ago and this is what I did.

Before I get started, I'm not an Attorney, nor do I give any legal advice of any kind, some laws I mention may have changed since I was introduced to them.

Since you have good documentation, consider sending a message to the AG of the State their Head Quarters are located in.

Tell the AG that after months and months of keeping you money, after they have repeatably lied about the timing of your order product, and at this point your not sure whether or not they intend to ever deliver the wheels.

When the AG starts getting several of these letters and the amount of money involved. (Collectively) Letters go out, and Businesses Really don't want to be getting these types of letters.

Follow up to AR that you are speaking with council regarding this issue, and send them a copy of the letter you sent to the AG. Say that if you don't see some positive results asap. You will also be looking into the options the DTPA (Deceptive Trade Practices Act) provides for consumers who have been taken advantage of by Businesses.

If you don't hear anything quickly, get a letter sent from an attorney, everyone having problems get together and hire one Lawyer to write a letter using all your names. (You can split the bill and it helps build up the $$$ amount of the possible damages. Letters will cost $200-$600. It's the letterhead I think that gets their attention the most.

BTW: The DTPA allows consumers to sue for Treble damages. (At least it used to)

This at least what I did to settle some issues I had to address several years ago.

Send ALL Correspondence Registered, Return Receipt. So you can make sure it was received and who signed for it. I always go to the web-page and send things to someone at the very top of the food chain. They generally have the power to kick some ass.

(Again, I'm not an Attorney, nor do I give any legal advice of any kind, some laws I mention may have changed since I was introduced to them.)

Please do as you see fit, if you know an attorney, bounce this off him/her a see if this will get their attention. The years I have been in business have taught me that, "If you don't stand up for yourself, no one will"

I hope this might help you get started. If there are any REAL Law Professionals on this site, please correct, modify or slam any or all of the information I just wrote.

True legal skills are always better than just some ones past experiences.

Let us know how it turns out one way or the other. Share with us what worked or what didn't work.

Good Luck,

Ty O'Neal

I bought my Coddingtons from a local Discount tire.. supposedly in their warehouse in AZ. and one week out. Turned into 3 weeks after they discovered they didnt have any and boyds people promised to make up a set within 2 weeks.... 4 1/2 months later plus. I did only have to pay for 2 wheels, but was dissappointed with the customer service and communication. They are nice rims, but I would like to find some center caps with a different logo,such as "looking for sponsors'.

Ive had a wheel order in with Budnik for about 5 weeks now. I expect to see the wheels the first week in December. They told me wheels 10" and under (width) usually run 6 weeks and as soon as you go over the 10" width, it goes to 8 weeks because of the extra time needed to build the 10"+ rim. All 4 of my wheels are over 10" wide.

Ok so the Wheels Finally came today. Ordered on May 25 Received on Nov 14th. They did take $250 off the order. Can anyone top that time received? 5 1/2 months for CL205's.


UPDATE: Sent this in today.

Hi, I ordered a set of CL205's on May 25th of last year. I was told it was going to take 3 to 4 weeks because of their sizes. After 4 weeks they told me that they were not made yet because they were having issues with the centers. Once the centers did become available my order was lost. So they resubmitted and told me it was going to be done right away. After waiting another 4 weeks I proceeded to call back and at that time I was informed that there was no paint for the centers, and that this paint was special from China and was on back order. At that time I was told it would be at least another 4 to 6 weeks before they could get this special paint in. So the paint finally comes in about September and then I'm told that there are no hoops and that we can not make any rims until these become available. Finally some hoops become available and the rims are made and sent to me in November. After receiving them I inspect them and find that 2 of the rims are damaged. They have been dropped. The box has a cut on the rim edge and the dents are pretty bad. So I call back and they send call tags for the damaged wheels. Another month goes by its now December and I have heard no word back on the original rims I sent back. My Father looks closer at the other rims that we kept and finds that I have missed to more dents on the inside of the lips on the ones I kept. I call on Thursday January 3rd for status on the rims I already sent back and to inform them that I have 2 more that need to be sent back. I realize that the whole reason these are damaged is because someone has shipped these with out the plastic rim guards that go around the outer edge. I get a call Friday January 4th from the Dealer Jack at Fast lane in Kansas City that the person I was working with Brad is no longer working at American Racing he has been promoted to Weld wheels and also that American Racing is now requesting all of my rims be shipped back and we get a full refund. NO RIMS AT ALL. Ok I think I have been a pretty good sport about all this. For all the excuses that Brad has given me and what I ended up receiving. Now I have missed out on a complete summer and fall. It is now winter, I am looking forward to getting my car out for next season I have selected the wheels I wanted and would choose not to go through this process again. I would like some customer support. My Friend had ordered wheels from you in about the same sizes and had no issues at all, (he had suggested your company, boy does he feel stupid now) I don't understand why this is such an impossible task. Please could someone call me back and really straighten this out. I really would like to use your product on my car. I have not sent the 2nd set of wheels back yet. I am waiting on a call from you. Thank your for your time.
