Competition is good for the customers.
Unfortunately too few understand how competition has been stifled in health care which is why we have the sky high costs.

Just got the FM catalog and noticed that FM now carries these.

It states TR will ship directly to you w/ free mounting and balancing. $109/wheel.

Ouch.

I really want to know what the XTR looks like now, and want to see it hit the market soon. I'm sure it's similar...but if it has that price AND a decent lip on it they're going to sell like hotcakes. They are listed as being concave, which combined with the offset probably means a lip not even close to the 6UL, which is perfect.

A $100 15x8 from Emilio...I now believe we actually landed on the moon.

FM has been a TR dealer, so it's not news to me.

That catalog makes me want to go into crazy debt.

But on the wheels I'm getting the 949's.

They look pretty good. I'm sure that's probably more than I'm allowed to say.
