    On my late night ebaying lol I found a listing for 19 '' Challenge rims with tires and titanium lug nuts . I all ready have the rims but I think the price is good I was thinking of getting them and powder coating them white or black . I not sure if I'm going to do that but the titanium lug nuts I want . Take a look and tell me what you guy think of the price.

    "We will only take bank wire payment on these"

    That would make me concerned.

    Have no idea what the seller is ultimately looking for however, with an opening bid of 5K for used rims w/o lugs I wouldn't get excited.

    I have been to this shop before the did all the upgrades to my 360 spider , So Im not worried about the wire transfer only . They are located 30 min from me and there shop is nicer than most peoples home lol It is the cleanest shop I have ever been in . And for price there is some other guy asking like $8500 and $1799 for the Lug nuts .

    Violating Ebay TOS. Cannot specify "bank wire only" has to accept paypal. I agree tho 5k seems steep ...

    i dont know if deluca is a shill but he bought my ngt exhaust and i gave him all my bank info to do a wire transfer like he says above and then after 2 weeks said his car got stolen and that he canceled the wire transfer. Also i had a bill of sale between myself and john and he put me in a really bad position seeing as i paid for another exhaust at the time and had used my rent money. Also see below email. in other words buyers beware

    1. I know wire transfers dont take 2 weeks

    2. he said his car was in the shop to get his exhaust taken off.... weird because he would have to wait till he got the ngt.

    3. funny that he didnt say anything about his car getting stolen when it happened her on fchat.

    4. seems to me he is directing people to the ad on ebay to buy the rims and tires.

    If you get the wire in the AM doing think you can send it back . I took my car to a shop to get my exhaust taken off and the car was stolen today . I try to recall the wire but I don't know if that will work . I'm so sorry for the inconvenience . I can't even tell you how sad I'm. Once again so sorry to take up your time .

    This has scam written all over it... Pretty obvious "DeLuca" is trying to advertise his own ebay auction.

    I enjoyed the visual on the "Owned" card, but for if you're going to slam someone, at least try to avoid making stupid spelling mistakes, ". . .your left looking stupid. . ." when it should be ". . .you're left looking. . ."

    Sorry, reached my limit of poor spelling reading through various postings around the web.

    Challenge race wheels are 18", Challenge Stradale wheels are 19".

    Oh, and thread closed, this is shameless self promotion.
