Coys wheels still in business?

I've been looking at wheels and researching by reading old threads. I've seen Coys mentioned a few times and tried to look into them. I googled them and found www.coyswheels.com but when I selected it the URL changes to http://michaelmazur.net/xml.php and the connection fails. Next I tried calling one number in Denver and the other in Utah. Denver number is "no longer valid" while Utah is an answering machine. The only place I can find the wheels is on e-bay. This does not inspire confidence. Are they still in business? Anyone bought from them lately?

I have been gone from Denver, CO for many years, but while living there I used to do business with Randy Coy, I will do some checking and see if they are still in business...

Re: Coys wheels still in business?

67 Carl, I just called a guy in Denver, Colorado and asked if Coy's is still in Business, His response was IRS shut them down about 3 months ago, This is per the Guy I spoke with, true or not ? He said Randy Coy also had a Tire/Wheel Store he thought in Salt Lake City, Utah, and either had sold it or going to sell it, and re-open another store in Denver I also contacted a Friend of mine by email, if he responds will let you know what he has to say!!!!

Re: Coys wheels still in business?

I looked on Google and typed in Coy's Custom Wheel & Tire Denver Colorado, and it came up with an address of: 1051 South Platte River Drive Denver, Colorad (did not provide zip code) and a phone: 303-830-2929
I called the number and a recording phone is no longer in service, maybe the guy was right about the tax issues.....................

Re: Coys wheels still in business?

Their facebook page lists Orem Utah and a phone number of (801) 356-2929. Is that the number you had in Utah?

Re: Coys wheels still in business?

Yeah, that's one of the numbers I called. Thanks everyone for the responses (and investigation). From what I've read in this forum and outside the forum they've had their ups and downs. Hopefully they will get it worked out and be successful.

I agree, it's hard to say stay away from a company that has a product that many people like but it's also hard to see those same people loose hard earned cash on products. I think they have posted to this forum before. Maybe they will come back and update if things turn around.

I was looking at the C-5. I was also looking at the American Racing TT M as well. Honestly, I'm not impressed with AR customer service either. I've reached out to them via the email address listed in the "contact us" link on their web page several times with no response. I also searched the web for other email addresses for them and have gotten no responses. There are no phone numbers.

At this point I think I"ll take all this as a hint and put the purchase of wheels and tires on hold. My main focus is saving money so I can put in a TKO 5 speed transmission. New wheels are mainly for appearance while tranny is for drivability.

AR's offices are right off the 710 @ SantaFe ave. in Compton.
Try this number (310) 604-1071

You can also try calling "TireRack" for info - they have contacts at AR and can get spec.s sent directly to you.

Re: Coys wheels still in business?

Hmm. Well, if you liked the C-55 then Discount Tire carries the MB Wheels "Old School" model which is the exact same wheel. The spokes are kinda pointed down the middle instead of round like the C5. Boss also makes a very similar lower priced wheel like the C5.

I know this is an old thread, however I have been looking at coys myself and the website posted originally is incorrect.

The correct web site is;

When I originally posted my comments that link did not work; it redirected me as I noted. Since then I've had other work done on my car, including adding a TKO, lowering springs and new exhaust system. With the addition of the springs and exhaust everything was just too low. I would scrape headers on everything, so I had to get some bigger tires/wheels to raise it up a bit and make it drivable. Went through different vendors again and I still preferred the look of Coy's, so I called them again. Spoke to the guy a few times, felt pretty comfortable and decided to take a chance. I ordered them directly from them, not eBay, and they arrived quickly and look fantastic. Not sure the issues they went/are going through but so far it's worked out for me. The only thing I didn't like was I didn't get a confirmation email, shipping info or billing invoice. I like documentation. It's saved my bacon more than a few times...
