they sent me rims that don't exist!

so i've been looking for some motegi track lite 1.0's with a gunmetal finish and a machined lip.. i called probably 10 different vendors that had a decent price listed and they all told me motegi doesn't make them anymore and they are not in stock.. one company that was nation wide.. a guy told me he would contact all 53 stores for me and found 1 rim the next day when he called me back..

so i call PERFORMANCE PLUS TIRES and they tell me they don't have the machined lip but they have the rim in solid gunmetal.. everywhere else didn't even have that.. so i'm like F' it... i want this rim... i have solid gunmetal now so I know i will like it. I got wasted thursday night and the delivery guy shows up friday morning at like 8:45.. my head is pounding.. i just put them away.. a friend just came over and asked about my rims.. so i opened up the boxes to show her... and its a beautiful surprise to me... They sent me the rims with a machined lip. I can't believe it.. lol merry late christmas to me

Love that smilie JK!

That's great mate, take a pic and send it to all the places that said they don't exist. That's generally what I do when people tell me things don't exist.

Oh i questioned the picture.. most sites would have a image of the rim in gunmetal.. but in my opinion the image was taken by a crappy photographer because the gunmetal looked more like a light ash grey color.. but some sites would have the darker grey gunmetal with the machined lip.. so i asked.. um the rims you have pictured have a polished lip but the item is listed as just gunmetal.. so what do you have.. they tell me oh it is just solid gunmetal.. or most of the time.. yeah thats on back order can you wait 60-90 days?? lol

yeah, they look great man...dont know what size tires those are, but i would put on 215/45 or 225/45, which ever one looks best and then lower it...it would look even better...i plan on getting the 225/45 myself(if they fit and look good) better than the small 205/40 i got now...but good choice...
