    Wheels will be getting collected soon, going back to compomotive and they will have them redone to a standard they should have been from day one, at least thats what they said

    I will update the thread once wheels are back

    There will be no problem (i hope) in them covering any cost.

    There's no argument there! it's plain to see and at least the GF signed as unchecked which is another bonus.

    Only cause i told her to make sure and check each wheel before signing for them, but he wouldnt wait, hence that option was given to her

    Gutted for you! The quality of Compo's aren't the best sadly! These are photos of mine after two years, nicknamed them Flake-o-motives now!

    When I got in touch with Compomotive they didn't really care much and told me over the phone that they an Motorsport alloys, built for motorsport use so expect it to happen! End of the day if they don't break doing 100mpg over gravel then thats what they for! If the paint comes off a rally driver wouldn't care!

    Here's pics of mine;

    Got to the point that the water coming out of the hose pipe would remove the paint! I kicked off so much that now Compomotive won't even reply to my emails and hung up the phone to me lmao.

    Update.

    Spoke to both parties recently, Compomotive and Reyland motorsport who iv ordered wheels from and gave them a deadline, if wheels are not on my doorstep by next tuesday i will want full refund

    That will be nearly 4 months since iv placed an order and paid in full there and then

    Disgusting.

    its pathetic that 4 months later you dont have a set of alloys sorted

    how much did you pay for them might i ask as i know reyland offer the best price due to thier discount from compomotive
