    Well I orderd some new wheels and tires for my truck. Excited cause I got a smokin deal. They were suppose to arrive tuesday so I took off work early to be there when the driver shows up. He takes out 1 wheel, then 2 then 3 and uhhh closes the door. They left one in mississippi. They said it would be here Wednesday. I was like man this sucks but o.k I can wait one more day. So My dad is home Yesterday so as the UPS guy shows up and is rolling the rim in my dad hears this clinking noise. Opens it up to find out that the lugs had spilled and now I'm stuck with 4wheels/tires and a total of 3 lug nuts. Sweet. When I get home I look at the rim and from the retard rolling it and hearing the clink clink clink that was my nice new rim getting dented and scratched. So now I have to send it back and then they send me a new one. Looking at around 2 weeks. But on a brighter side, I'll have the lugnuts friday. YAY. Sorry guys just had to vent. :glasses:

    A little off topic but how do you like your gibson exhaust. I looking into getting a new exhaust soon but i'm looking for something not to loud so I'm leaning toward maggies.

    Sounds to me like UPS just bought you a new rim...they ought to.

    Thats a shame. If that was me there'd be one less UPS guy in the world. Thats B.S. but good luck with it.

    Yeah I did have the option of buying the slightly damaged rim and new tire at a highly discounted price but I have nowhere on the truck to keep it.

    Yeah I was gonna put in the rear but the bed being only 5'8" is already small enough let alone a 32" tire hogging the room.

    Good point. You'll probably use your bed. Personally, I always go with the insurance...on something expensive. UPS flubbed up an order I made from my speaker company. My subs are over $600 a piece and two of them had been dropped and the frame broken. UPS got a nice little hefty bill for that...

    Yeah discounttire is picking up the bill for now on getting me a new one but I told them what happened so hopefully the go after UPS.

    :lol:If I have a choice I choose ABUPS (Anybody but UPS!) They screwed me once by losing a check, and their attitude sucked, so I make it a point not to do business with UPS. I've even paid more, cuz they ain't getting a second chance to bend me over!

    Yeah I've never had a problem with ups until now, but so far everyone I've talked to has been nice and friendly which is a welcomed comfort.

    When in doubt, FedEx it.

    Oddly enough, I have never had a problem with UPS that wasn't the originating shipper's fault (I'm pretty sure a package from newegg never got on the truck...). I have had some problems with FedEx, but I prefer UPS anyways.

    I still like going to a store and buying but when I can save a bunch of money I'll risk it.
