New Magnum 500 questions
#1
I just got my new Magnum 500s in the mail. Noticed some imperfections. Is this normal or should I send them back? These are shots from each rim. Each one has small nicks in the chrome.

I don't know if that's normal but if its as bad as it looks in the pics that suck. They're spots where they'll start to rust and peal...

I got a set back in the spring from "MU" and they had no imperfections, like SILVERBACK said,"They're spots where they'll start to rust and peal..."

I would give them a call, BTW who did you get them from?

I would see that others say first, before calling them.

I would not accept those, especially from Summit. I have never had an issue returning anything to Summit.

Who is going to eat the freight?

When you call, or email(they are responsive within 48 hours), ask them if this is normal.

If they say yes, everyone here is forewarned and you can tell them the quality is much less than you expected.

If they say no, then you should get a better set next time.

I went ahead and spoke with Summit. They passed me off to Wheel Vitiques who made the rims. They are closed for the weekend and so I am going to sent them and email and follow up on Monday.

Any other thoughts before I speak with them?

The 2 with little spots may be ok
The grinder marks and divets are not good

If the scrapes and scratches are on the front side I'd send them back. One photo almost looks like it has been curbed. Don't expect the back side of any Wheel Vintiques wheels to be pretty. Chuck

Be knowledgeable by letting them know they will start to rust at those spots and the chrome will quickly peel and flake off.

Good luck and keep us in the loop.
