BUT THE STOOPIT FUC KS SENT THE WRONG SIZE, WHERE THE BOLTS GO ARE LIKE 1MM TOO SMALL. ON TOP OF THAT MY CD CHANGER IS STILL BROKEN. I EVEN GOT THE STUCK CD OUT. THE FREAKIN THING STILL SAYS E-01. SHHHHEEIT, I THOUGHT ID HAVE NEW WHEELS THIS WEEKEND, NOW I GOTTA WAIT TILL MONDAY TO SPEAK TO CUSTOMER SERVICE. on top of all this, i scratched one of the wheels, cause the ****ed thing wouldn't fit, i put the wheel down and this freakin clumsy fool walks into it sending it face down onto the concrete. OH MAN... I'M PISSED.

Yes, this is very common. You actually have to unplug the changer to reset it. It sucks, but I guess it's just another way for Acura to bring you in to the shop! Try just changing to FM on the stereo and see if that resets it. If not, unplug the changer, turn on the radio, put if on FM, trun it off, and plug the changer back in. Should be good after that. I just had to do that twice this weekend (time for a good cleaning!)

ScotcH, I have to comment on your gif.

For the first time in my life I saw a night rider honda accord. Now, granted... AS IF THAT WASN'T BAD ENOUGH... the guy had the music off the sound track blasting. Last night in Bethesda.

i'm just really confused because these wheels should fit. the bolt pattern is 5 x 4.5mm, they should fit. if you go to the O.Z. website they list very few cars for this wheel, and guess what one of them is...yup, acura legend. manufacturer's defect? wheelmax tells me now that the only thing is for me to send the wheels back if i'm 100% sure they don't fit. when they measure them, if it's 4.5mm i'm stuck paying the shipping. sometimes it feels like the worlds on my shoulders. plus the new shipping charges. i'm still confused. like eight of my friends tried to get these wheels on, no luck. i'm gonna bring a whee' to a shop and have them try i guess. uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Take a picture of you fitting the wheel on the Legend, and send them that and a scanned document of the Legend bolt pattern. Oh, and hire an attorney. Have him draft a letter to the company using his letter head addressing the problem. I ganantee you Wheel Max will start being a little more helpful.

If not, Better Business Bureau scares them into submission.

I've always had good luck w/ the Better Business Bureau.

www.bbb.org

Find the office closest to them , and send the request via the net. As simple as it can get.

Your conversation with wheelmax reminds me of a howard stern bit where this lady calls into comlain and bubba (or whoever he is pretending to be) acts all stupid with a deep voice - LMAO it was so funny.

While I don't find it funny that you are getting the run around I MOST CERTAINLY HOPE THAT SOMEONE PULLS THE HEAD OUT OF THEIR A S S at wheelmax.

You will probably need to get in writing from a service station or dealer or where ever you take your Legend and new rims to that they in fact do not fit - cause the devil knows that wheelmax won't trust the customer.

Cheesous Flippin Crap. Please post your results that we all stay informed about wheelmax.

The OZ website doesn't even have Acura in their application list. Which wheel did you buy? Which part doesn't fit?

well, I just got off the phone with this chic from wheelmax and she said for me to send the wheels back so they can measure them and they will totally refund the shipping. it's most likely a manufacturer's defect. i'm just worried about the sssssss...nevermind. i'll let you know as things progress.

Ouch ... that's just plain wrong :) I whipped that gif up after surfing Knight Rider sites all night (yes, very bored)... I guess it just brought back memories!
