    Thumbs down So Sad....

    Taking one of my alloys in tomorrow to get it refurbed - not a simple job like everyone else seems to be doing, oh no...

    My wheels have chrome rims, and one of the things that I was impressed with when I bought them was that the rims are replaceable. Great idea, I thought, because I'm bound to kerb them at some point. Anyway, courtesy of a rather large pothole on the M1 not long after I bought them, I lost one of the chrome rims.

    No big deal, I thought, I'll just call Team Dynamics and order a new rim. Ha! As if it was going to be that easy... Team Dynamics won't just post out a new rim, they insist on having the wheel returned to them so they can do it. Bit of a pain, but oh well... Then comes the cherry on the cake... Team Dynamics don't deal with the general public, only approved dealers. They gave me the name of a local place that would sort it for me, which was nice.

    Now, they had already told me that the price would be £30 to replace the rim, or £40, and that would incude removal and refitting of the tyre, valve, rebalancing etc., so all I would be paying for would be the couriering (is that even a word? )

    So a quick call to this local shop today... Their price to package and courier the wheel to Team Dynamics?




    £100!!!!!!!

    Chuffing rip off! £100 for a new rim that is only costing £30! Maybe replaceable rims AREN'T such a good idea....anyhow, a pic of a very sorry looking back quarter, taken on a bad camera phone as it was going dark, so sorry it's fuzzy!



    But it's show season soon, it had to be done

    Oh, and forgot to add the £10 for that wheel from a scrappy because I wasn't prepared to run on the spacesaver spare for a month, and then whatever it will cost tomorrow for the right size tyre to replace the one that's on it...

    Not good at all.

    Have you tried contacting team dynamics to say how disappointed you are with their choice of agent?

    Could do, I suppose - but I reasoned that the only alternative would the be to take the wheel to another dealer miles away, which is time consuming. Maybe I'll be proved wrong, maybe they'll have it back in 2 days with a big helpful smile...

    I doubt it somehow!

    Maybe, just maybe, it is something to do with Health and Safety. Maybe not but it could be this scenario :- they cannot sell for Mr Joe public to fit because they may still be liable in the event of a wheel failure.
