Default need somewhere to get wheels and tires asap

ive been talking to Joseph from subydude.com and basically i was lead to believe he had the rims and tires i wanted, i was ready to get them but today i talked to him and somehow he doesnt have anymore. not till next month. that experience with suby dude made me not like them.


Does anyone know where i can get rims and tires from? Im around the 626 area but am willing to go for a drive to get rims and tires. im looking for some rotas or enkei's and some falcon ziecks. if anyone know where a good wheel place is let me know. im looking to spend about $1K maybe a little more.


I need tires and rims by the end of next week so i can drive my car back from the body shop.

any help is appreciated. thanks

I presume by "falcon ziecks" you mean Falken Ziex?!


Discount Tire ( www.tires.com) can get both Falkens and Rotas, and Enkeis, normally within a day or two.

Service varies by store, but the one I use (Fountain Valley) matched SubyDude prices, plus they include lifetime mounting/balancing and local service.

What kind of Rotas did you want? It seems like every vendor and their mother are selling Rotas.

And do a search in SCIC for a thread started by mattjk about getting a good deal on tires. A chick named Erin in the 626 had a tire shop that went out of business and has a lot of brand new Ziex in stock at great prices.

And if all else fails, there is always Vic at DTEM.

Just remember that Discount Tire stores in the Los Angeles area are VERY DIFFERENT OPERATIONS from the Discount Tire Corp that is everywhere else in the US.

The L.A. Discount Tires (like the Monrovia one being joked about) should be avoided.

Discount in SD (and I guess in OC) are fine to deal with.

i don't know what exactly happened in your case ^^^^, but FWIW, I have purchased brand new STi parts from Joe/Subydude, and his service has always been nothing but great! He even personally delivered some parts to me in SoCal while on a family vacation!

one thing to keep in mind is that Subydude is one of the most popular ROTA vendors, esp on NASIOC & I-Club. Consequently, his inventory changes quickly, so perhaps, items that he originally quoted you as "in stock" might have been purchased before the next time you were in contact w/him.

We were going to meet up at AIS for me to pick up the wheels and pay him.

i understand that they are really busy and blah blah blah. but you dont tell someone you have them and they tell you that your gonna get them from them and all of a sudden not have them.
i think thats messed up...i told him i would get them for sure and everything.. that same day i called and some of his employees told me that they had a few more sets in. but whatever.. ill just take my business else where. not my lose.
