I ordered new Sparco Assetto Gara matte bronze wheels from tirerack and got them last week. I checked them over and found that the inside rim of 3 wheels had scratches (enough that I could see white in the scratch. Must be some under coat or alloy)
I called TR and they were really helpful and sent 3 new wheels on 2 day shipping.
So I get the 3 new and again the inside rim on all 3 of the new wheels have some small scratches or the finish looks thinner in spots.
Has anyone else experienced this with Sparco or other wheels? Is it normal for the inner rim to have some manufacturing differences or is this just bad storage by TR? (none of the boxes were damaged on shipment so it wasn't that).
I'm calling TR tomorrow morning but I'm not sure if I'm being to anal expecting $145 wheels to be scratch free when you get them???
