I been having driveability problem lately so I took my car to a qualified front end specialist. Ford has aligned it twice and said this third time that they couldn't find any problems with the steering or front suspension.

The guy showed me the run out on the wheels and WOW! It's a miracle I could even drive the thing. 3 of the four wheels were bent. I called raceline and naturally they are "out of warranty".:mad:

They guy at raceline suggested I take them to a wheel repair company. I did and they want $600, no guarantees that they can fix all the run out. :(

Do you think they came bent from raceline? That really sucks.

I've had a couples sets of aftermarket wheels (forged aluminum) that came with about 1/16-1/8" of runout right out of the box. My stock chrome torque-style wheels are the straightest, highest quality rims I've ever owned...no runout whatsoever (checked when I had a vibration problem...just a bad wheel balance job caused that...). I've never owned Racelines, but that old cliche' "you get what you pay for" always seems to fit.
