Anyone else waiting too long for there DPEs?

It's been over 10 weeks time since ordering these wheels and I have absolutely no idea when they will be completed. The problem apparently lays with DPE themselves. I figure mine may be part of a whole batch of wheels that are behind schedule, and as popular as they are here, maybe some other people are in the same boat, and had more info? Is this what is expected when ordering these types of things?

I don't think that's typical...mine took 10 weeks including delivery to Canada & a week at customs

Have you called them to inquire about the delay?

Custom made wheels take forever to arrive, but they are definately worth the wait.

tbone84x and warsong: You are both correct. This is a common thing amongst all custom wheel manufacturers. They are definitely tailor made to the enthusiast. Offering such custom offsets and finishes does take time.

They are definitely worth the wait since wheel choice can either make or break a beautifully modded car.

OnePhatCLK With all custom forged wheel manufacturers, 4-6 weeks is standard. At times, especially during the summer, orders increase tremendously. This puts a large demand on manufacturers; therefore, 1-3 wk delay is possible depending on finish and/ or special requests the customer may have.

I've heard another forged wheel manufacturer has a backorder so if you are at your 6th week, I would definitely not worry too much because it is better than waiting 4-5 months. In the end, you will receive your wheels I am sure. I've been through many wheels myself and have dealt with numerous wheel manufacturers so I think I know the industry enough to know what I am talking about.

Just my .02 cents.

DPE keeps talking about customer service. If they are going to be late they should at least contact the customers and let them know.

Maybe the talk is just all about hot air.
