    My dad was in a wheel buying mood recently and I demanded he get them from Rally America (Wheelkid on the HAMB). He decided on the 15" artillerys they have. So he called them up and asked if they would make a little bit different offset than normal. Sure. That was like 5 days ago. They showed up today.:eek: Let me wrap my head around this... He called them up and asked for custom offset wheels. Jimmy MUST have built them the same or next day because you have to allow at least three days to box, ship and deliver four wheels across the country. I'm just amazed. Thanks to Wheelkid for impressing the HELL out of my dad.

    Anyone reading this that is in the market for wheels, or needing to modify stock wheels, don't hesitate. THEY WILL TREAT YOU RIGHT! They treat Hamb'ers with absolute respect. Rock on guys.

    I can second that. I got mine from Wheelkid and I couldn't be happier with my wheels or the way I was treated.

    I got mine from Rally America as well. The rear set of rims had a custom offset. They were built, shipped, and I had them in a week. Nothing but good things to say about them.

    Wheelkid did my wheels for me and the service was A+ and the shipping price to canada was El Cheapo!!!!!!!!

    Another thumbs up for Jimmy and Rally America.
    It's nice to know in this day and age that there are still people that care about quality and customer service.

    I ordered my chromed 15x12" steelies from him this week after reading not so good things about Stockton. I didn't see the 15x12 on the site so figured they didn't make them. Called Jimmy and he said they can fire up a set for me, no problem. offset of 5.0 one side and 4.5 on the other. No problem. 3 weeks due to chrome. Not bad. Can snap pictures and post when delivered.

    Over the past couple of days I've been researching into O.E. stale chrome rims for my '62 Fairlane. After mainly hearing negatives about Stocktons, I'm glad povertyflats mentioned Rally America (wheelkid) to me. You guys sound awesome, and now that I'm an Alliance member - I can't wait to leave my own positive feedback!

    Good Job Guys!

    I wish I could be like some of you other guys and get my presents early;) My wheels are still running on time. I ordered mine from Jimmy just short of 3 weeks ago. I will post pics of them right out of the box.

    I guarantee it's due to the chrome shop. Most chrome shops will give you a time frame, which you pass on to the customer. Unfortunately when the chromer lags it looks bad on you. Give Jimmy a call, I'm sure he's on top of it. But it looks like they're still on sched.
