yea well they would not give me a new rim . they just gave me a free detail. he said that the chip could have happened at any time , i told him they were brand new and i checked them before i left the car with him and his response was only if we did it i would fit it , but it cold of happen anytime. i was very dissappointed. to m that is not how busniess should be conducted.

hmm...how do i explain this...

Like you pull up to the car wash...they tell you to pull up onto the carrying thing thats on the floor...then you put your car in neutral...and the carrying thing takes you slowly through the car wash...it like holds your wheels...

I really dont know how to explain this...sorry...i tried my best...
