Hi All! I sold my one piece Forgeline wheels with tire sensors for $3,400 and buyer was in charge of shipping (was on sale for $4k with Trofeo R tires). Buyer did not want tires so had them removed. Buyer received them today and said three of the four were perfect. Turns out a rear wheel has a minor "vibration" but I can not see it visually watching the video he sent me.
The main reason for this post is to find for the buyer a good shop to send the wheel to to get straightened and to confirm wheel is okay to be used. He is located in San Francisco. I recommended if he is that particular to send back to Forgeline. Does Forgeline do rim straightening?
Buyer is claiming he wants me to buy him a new rim. I am simply thinking since the wheels drove perfect for me with zero wheel vibration or alignment even up to 160+ MPH in my videos then the rim may simply need straightening. Note McLaren Scottsdale was the last person that drove my car as well. The service techs drove the car. They were the ones that removed my wheels. Car was sold by the dealer and the buyer purchased my car for a lessor price with just the stock wheels installed back on the car. The dealership took off the wheels for me and have not been used since.
For all I know since I was not responsible for packing he had a friend in my town visually inspect the wheels, pay and took delivery of the wheels and was responsible for shipping to buyer. No idea if package was okay, or if friend dropped that rim or what. But I want to make sure he is happy while at the same time not getting taken advantage of.
The shop looking at the wheels also stated that the wheel had a "torch" to it. I do not know of any work done to my wheels and never needed work on them. In the video I am not sure if the guy is saying "...burn marks from my blow torch.." or what the mark is from. I have never noticed it or have seen a mark. Anyway...I need advice to where to get the wheel "perfect" for the buyer.
Thank you in advance for the help!
