american racing service??

has anyone bought a set of american racing wheels lately?

Ive heard some bad reports on service and wait times for the custom rims as i think the centers come from china. (CL205)

who is best to deal with and most efficient with this brand?

thanx , Gav

The custom shop has actually been doing very good on turn around lately. Average 4-5 weeks (sometimes quicker), when parts are available.
The bad point you brought up..the cast centers do come from the far east...so if production planning is not on top of parts and they run out of centers there could be a delay.
When you get ready just give me a shout and we can check availability of parts and you can have a pretty good idea of the time frame.

Re: american racing service??

I originally ordered a set of the T70s in 17 inch diameter for my Camaro at the end of July 2011, and Summit sent the 7-inch wide fronts in a week, but the rear 8 inch wide wheels were constantly pushed back to delivery well into 2012. I got so frustrated that it was easier for me to swap my brakes to a 4-wheel 11 inch rotor setup so I could fit 15 inch diameter Cragar S/S wheels instead. If you are going to order ARE's, then be prepared to wait. Even custom backspacing will take them a while.

Relax, all right? My dad's a TV repairman, got an ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

I used to work at AR, everything they make now is made in China. If you are looking for torque thrusts in normal sizes you should be ok.

Re: american racing service??

I don't know about custom wheels or if you can even get them but Crager was very good to me. Prices were very good and I ordered from Summit.

I just ordered some chrome US Mags for my 67. Can't wait to get them and get them installed. I bought a set of TT2s years ago for my 99 SS and had no issues, but haven't had any experience with American Racing lately.
