Im sure it had to do with the goon putting on the tires, All 5 were bent? That seems like a long shot. -Jon

What backspacing did you get?

I originally had the 997's. They started to rust in under a year. The center cap turned white. Not happy at all.

I replaced them with AEV Savegre's, much better!

Stay away from this brand of wheel. I have had my black rocks for 9 months now. For the last 3 months or so I have been getting some vibrations and when after a new set of tires the other day, I'm still getting it. I was just informed by my tire shop that all four wheels are bad. This thing hasn't been offroad since I got the wheels at the end of last summer.
