    Ebay item description

    Why dont people just be honest........

    I won a set of alloy and they have turned up today

    Here is the text from the description


    "Five 17" irmscher softstar wheels

    I have started to refurbish 4 of the wheels and the 5th is in it's box brand new.

    The off set is 40

    The irmscher product code is: i9910009

    THESE WHEELS ARE PRIMED READY FOR PAINTING!

    PLEASE NOTE:

    They are 5 stud wheels
    There are no tyres on any of them.
    There are no centre caps.

    Here is a great chance to colour and design your own wheels so your car stands out of the crowd.

    The hard part of sanding them down and priming has been done. The only hard part you have to do is choose the colour you want once you get the wheels home!"


    The bits in RED I have a problem with

    I have posted small pictures so I don't hurt your eyes, but if you want a laugh, click to enlarge











    I asked him before purchasing for some additional pictures and these are what I received




    now he did say that the 5th wheel is new in a box........... Well when I opened it...............




    well it is not quite brand new, it has a valve fitted and has been weighted an balanced.


    I am not one for complaining and I know I could kick up a stink on EBAY but I can't be bothered, hopefully I can save these wheels

    IF you are the person who sold me these wheels and you are a member on here or your going to sign up just to reply, don't take offence etc


    this is purely for others amusement.


    SHOCKING, should I leave negative feedback

    Yes you should, That prep job is appalling. He actually expects you to just paint them and put them on your car like that? LOL!

    I dont think they were prepped before he poured the paint on, it has not dried yet so probably not enough hardner in the mix
