    Don't want to bore you guys and I know most of you are familiar with the aluminum wheel recall and how to spot them, but I just wanted to alert the few who may not know. Item number: 230326941529 and Item number: 230326941743 should be avoided. (and while on the subject of wheels, though it's hard not to, I promise not to discuss the "Modular Wheels" dealer, other than to note that he is now operating under the moniker "pasofino-222").

    Allan- I think the original wheels were actually magnesium and the replacements were aluminum. Thanks for the warning.

    Gork!! You're right. Quickly written, jumped ahead in my thinking and put it bass-ackwards. Thanks, Taz.

    Terry, is there any way to tell from a photo of they're the recalled mags or the aluminum wheels? The seller on ebay calls them 575 wheels, leading me to think that they're either post-recall or else he's fibbing. And while we're at it, what exactly WAS the problem with the mags?
