Liquid Metal Magma rims (black). It took almost 4 months to get them after ordering due to backorder and they are made in Japan. Well here I am 3.5 months later and the clear coat is coming off of 3 of them. I went to a local Discount Tire store (bought them from Discount Tire Direct) and they said that they would get me 4 new ones and replace them under warranty no questions asked (I gotta hand it to Discount Tire/Direct they've been nothing but overly helpful in this matter).

Anyway, they call me back a few hours later and tell me the news.. They called Liquid Metal directly and they stated they do not have any of those rims. The DT guy said he didn't know if that meant they were being discontinued or if they were temporarily halting production or what.

Now on the upside, he did find a store in Ohio that had 3 new rims that I need (however they were originally going to replace all 4 even though the 4th didn't show signs of clear coat problems). They also could find several complete sets of their Charcoal colored rims. I personally do not like how charcoal color looks against my black car.

So.... I opted to go ahead and have them get me the 3 they can get ahold of. I mean each rim comes with a 1yr warranty so I have until march of 2010 for that 4th rim to get clear coat problems and hope they are in production again, else I guess I'm looking at paying to have it clear coated again by a paint shop out of my own pocket and who knows how in the hell THAT will turn out :|

Ever do a mod on your car that seems to never stop haunting you and you wonder why you even did it in the first place now?

Sorry to hear you are having so much trouble, Yes anybody that has
done major mods on their ride has definitely had a mod done that either
they didnt like or it just did not work out.
