Just want to say that Earl over at Touge Factory has EXTREMELY helpful to me with my wheel purchase for my 08 STI. He took the time to answer any and every question I came up with, special ordered an offset for me, and even gave suggestions as to which finish of lug looked best with the wheel I went with.

When I couldn't get the offset I wanted through special order in time, Earl helped me look for other wheels but I ultimately wanted the JIC J-Force 05 so he gave me some suggestions on minor alignment tweaks to be able to run the JICs in the offset that are in stock.

Less than a week later the wheels were at my door and look amazing! Tires are being mounted tonight...275/35 on JIC J-Force 05 18x9.5" and I can't wait!

Thank you Earl and Touge Factory

Here's a pic of the wheels installed...

I bought some Stance coilovers from Earl last month and had a wonderful experience. Earl is an all around great guy and is easy to reach. He answered all my n00b questions fully so that I could understand.

So far the coilovers are amazing. I don't know why I didn't get coiovers before now. The adjustability is great and the improvement in handling was incredible.

Thumbs down Not Happy With This Vendor

Here is my review of TOUGE FACTORY.

I had ordered some Kw V3's through this vendor on 8-10-09 after seeing their kwv3 blowout thread. since i have a 5x114 fitment sti i asked multiple times if the part being ordered was for my specific model. they assured me that they were. I went ahead and ordered them and they arrived in a couple days. they came quickly and i was happy with that. I spent the weekend installing these parts in my friend's garage and found out, after the rears were put on, that they were incorrect. the fronts would not fit. I was not a happy camper.

I got home searched kw's website and found out that the part number sent to me was infact for an 04 sti. I sent them a pm about the whole ordeal. They wanted me to take pictures etc. i obliged and took pics of the parts and I told them that there were for the 04 sti. I mentioned getting the correct model parts so i could do a swap when i brought the incorrect ones in with little downtime and waiting. They said its not a problem the warehouse is close and they would come in within a day. so i brought the parts in and there was no progress. I returned the parts and i asked for a new invoice listing the parts were returned and the new part being ordered. When i got the new invoice i saw that they were going to order the EXACT SAME INCORRECT PART. i had told them in PM's and on the phone what the correct number was and they still almost ordered the same part i have just returned!!!! i was assured that they would be shipped out on 8-24-09 and i would get a tracking number. I should have just cancelled my order right there.

Well, 8-24 came and i did not get an update. I sent pm's and nothing was answered. when i finally got ahold of them, i just got an excuse saying kw had bad customer service and blamed them for not shipping out the correct part. THis was the last straw. I called my CC and requested a chargeback. i got screwed out of two weeks time and 5 hours of install time for me and a buddy. I mean the part being incorrect is not my fault they should have just drop shipped the correct ones and deal with everything behind the scenes with Kw and independent from me.

I ordered from a different vendor (turn in concepts) on 8-26-09 and they got my parts correctly first time to me on 8-27-09. 1 day!!!! WOUld i order from TOUGE FACTORY again? No! i do not recommend TOUGE FACTORY. ordering from them was a waste of time.

Went their for a sticker to cover scratches in a cluster that the previous owner put white face gauges on (total fail on his part)

Also picked up a JDM chicago sticker and a Touge factory.

By far the best customer service I've seen. They were very chill and introduced me to the staff and helped out a lot for something as small as a sticker. Had some great conversations and a great time.

They are very knowledgeable and answered all my questions and went the extra mile to find the answers to questions that were not easy answers like who makes my front bumper.

Will def. do business there again.

Touge factory FTW

Nick at Touge Factory helped me out with any and all questions and concerns regarding wheel fitment. He showed outstanding consumer service, kept in contact with me every step of the way, and gave me the best price I could find! Thanks Nick!

P.S. I love the new rims.
