Re: WI Fanatics

All my fun money for my car is getting eaten away too. I'll get word mid week how bad this messed up my suspension and what it'll cost.

That normally works but he knew how (or so he said) and he rode with me and wouldn't quit crying about going to taco bell, so i threw him the keys and said "just go then". The only time I'd ever let a friend drive it....

It's looking like i need one wheel, one tire, one wheel bearing, a strut housing for my isc coilover and hopefully an alignment can get my back wheel back into spec, but it looks really cambered and towed out a bit.... Ugh

Hope in one hand... You know the rest. That's what this situation seems to be. I'm giving him a month (2 weeks remaining) before i lose my calm. I don't like to be the dick, but one way or another, i will make this "even".

Does anyone know of any wheel repair shops? I am looking on the Madison Ares or potentially Milwaukee.

The closest shop I know of is Wheels America in Chicago. I've used them before and recommend them.

Wheels America - If you're not local I'd advise against it. They're known for screwing up rims actually then trying to blame someone else for it and not pay up to fix. Happened to me twice, and several times to iND customers brought there.

There is a place in highland park il that does it too, try them. Name escapes me sorry.
