    I'd be going the way back to the suppliers!! (assuming they were new)
    I'd think running a different offset even with a spacer will unbalance something!

    just sent the company a message that one wheel has a diffrent offset hope they have the correct one in stock, very poor service that they were not checked before shipped.

    I would take the hassle sending it back any day. It will forever be a pain in the ass never mind the extra expense of the spacer's and possible longer nuts etc. company should also ship them for free. All you should have to do is email them as you have done. The rest is up to them.

    i know it will probably be another week before you get you wheels on the car, but I think it would be worth it.

    Agree 100%. Their mistake, up to them to sort it out and cover any expense involved. I wouldn't want a set of odd wheels, full stop.

    If they are a reputable company they should get the courier who delivers the new wheel to collect the wrong one from you then there is no charge to you ............It is there mistake after all !!!!!
