949-478-2174 is ralph's new work number. I know him personally and saw this thread while browsing for info on the UAS bag kit and Phantom cup kit and called him to see what happen to his work number. He gave me this number to give out to the fellow homies that need wheels work.
Ralph is the man to go too. He made my vs-xx 20x9.5 +4, 20x11 +6 to 20x11 -10, 20x13 -10 for my 350z. He is very helpful and can do almost anything custom for your wheels. I'm planning on sending him my next set which are 19" Maya RT5 to him soon for work, possible keep them 19 with 12" up front and 14" in the rear or step lip up to 20 with an inch less width but still trying to decide what to do with them.
damn. Any pics of those VSXX on your 350Z?
I sent my wheels to Ralph and i wish it was a good story , i have been trying for 6 months and have had nothing but grief and excuses including my email was not working .
Maybe its because I am in Canada and he thinks i am too far to doo anything .
Long story short is i sent my OZ's to him paid him and when i opened the box it looked fine , when to mount the tires on them and they are wobbling like they are bent ???????????????
I look closely and he drilled all the holes wrong for the bolts to mount , then he obviously realized but instead of measuring and checking again he drilled again , it must of been by hand and all of them are off .
Now one side of the face is jammed against the barrel and one side has a gap !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who in their right mind would build a wheel and sell it when it isn't round , that's the point of wheel , isn't it ?
To top it off the face has a register which is supposed to butt up against the barrel like a hubcentric ring and that is off as well which is why the wheel is also not round .
His idea originally was to have me to pay and send them back because he was short on money and " FIX " them . He finally changed his mind and gave me a fed ex account to pay for it .
When i questioned his method of repair he was going to take , he said he was going to weld the faces to meet the improperly made barrels and then drill open the holes wider .
I had no faith at this point and told him i wanted new barrels and i will pay to ship these paper weights back to him . He of course no longer responds .
To add insult to injury , the finish i wanted on the rims is blotchy and has fingerprints on them .
This is just insane , Ralph wright , opossum Jenkins , wright wheel what ever you want to call yourself , you took my money and gave me some crap no one would pay for .
I will promise you i will do everything in my power to keep you from butchering another wheel and ripping someone off again including getting a job as most employers do make a simple internet search .
I hope this reaches you and you do the right thing like you were supposed to in the first place as you kept assuring me that you "give me your word . if your not satisfied you make them again if you have to .
Well yeah buddy , you do have to " MAKE " them again .
just got my wheel rebarreled with wheelflip..cant complain thus far
go big or go home. Megan coilovers son!!!
dang mr waijai bling bling!!
That Vaughn guy, I am assuming he does it to one piece wheels? I know it sounds super redumbdant but my Advan RCII's are 9.5 wide with 35 offset. which is the lowest widest you can go on them I want to them to be a 10in or a 10.5. So he would have to cut and add in the inner barrel. I want this for the S14. Cause I am going to need that width at least all around
Give him a call, he's a good guy and very willing to help.
