Default FFD motorspot wheel review

I just want to come in here and share my experience with the FFDs. Austin and Kalson have gone above and beyond in customer service. As you might know, I have 2 sets of the wheels for Lazarus, one for track use with hoosiers and one with RS3s for street/occasional track. The wheels are lightweight, inexpensive, look good, and thus far have taken a beating as laz rockets around the racetrack bouncing off curbs.

When I purchased my most recent set there was a slight issue with one of the wheels upon arrival. I emailed the guys at FFD and they immediately shipped me another wheel. I had a 3 day track weekend coming up and needed the wheel and they were able to do that for me in a timely fashion that allowed me to get the car ready to go and they included a return shipping label for the wheel that was being replaced. All in all I am very pleased with the customer service and the product itself, I will continue to rock FFDs on Laz for the forseable future, I hope there is a x9 coming out soon

I want to +1 OP. I have had a set since June and am thoroughly pleased. I had some trouble getting them balanced and needed hubcentric rings. But that was mostly due to shitty Federal tires and not the wheel's fault. The whole time Kalson worked with me to make sure everything was in order. I actually happened to order message them on facebook at like 10pm at night asking for a quote and they got back to me like 10min later. That morning they were shipped and at my door within 4 days. Very pleased, will buy again. Btw I have the 15x8 +32 silver ones.

Obligatory photos:

If you click the image, you can open it to full resolution... This way the image is not huge on the forum page.


Better?

I emailed back and forth with presumably one of the owners of FFD - possible 15x9's appearing in 2015, depending on how the 15x8 sales go next quarter.
