Man, I finally decided on my wheels, clicked through the banner, and it says they can't process my order now, I have to call. AAARRRGGGHHHH

I know that must mean they are out of stock of the wheel I picked (Mortegi MR116's). Man, it took me almost a month to decide on these, not 100% what I wanted (OZ Superturismo GTs are just too expensive right now) but I think they will look good and shave 24 pounds off the car.

Now if they are out of stock, I am back to the drawing board! Man, is it going to take forever to wait till Monday.

I tried to order my snow tires by clicking the banner but it doesn't give me the option of picking a 2012 model like the normal Tire Rack web site does.

I tried picking 2011 but then it wants to know what valve stems and that is not an issue on the 2012s.

I'd like to support the site by using the banner but I also want to make sure I get the right stuff.

Any suggestions, Sonny?

Thanks!!!

Same thing happened to me. Clicking on the banner takes me right to the site, it's the other link that takes me to the Upgrade Garage where 2011 is the newest that can be selected.

I clicked through the banner, added the wheels under the CORRECT vehicle I wanted, then, just to be safe, clicked through the upgrade garage and just went to my cart where it still showed the correct model.

I just hope the forum got credit, LOL, there is nothing to let you know it clicked you through and authenticated it for the forum.

If you ever have any issues, you can always give me a call or note that you spoke with me/MK6 when it asks if you spoke with one of our salespeople.

Yup. that's what I did. I'm the guy you called last week about someone dropping my wheels and having to ship from Georgia. LOL

They are supposed to be here Thursday, I so can't wait to get them on this weekend!!!

Thanks!

Yeah, I figured out a way around the problem since I was only buying tires, not wheels, it didn't really matter anyway. I just thought you should be aware.

Just ordered my winter setup, 205/55R16 Continental ExtremeWinterContact
on steel wheels. Feel good about them after reading your tests, and the price was great. Just kept wondering about how good the Goodyears might be. Well, I'm still happy with my choice!

Hi Sonny,

if I am located in another country (Trinidad) does TireRack ship to someone who can forward the item to me?
