I hate it when my wheels bend.....

Oh wait, that's never happened.

Next we're gonna hear about fine grade stainless steel guaranteed not to corrode. Oh yeah, we already have that.

Marketing.... blah

18" and 19" wheels with 35 series tires do tend to bend. Shit, I have two bent wheels on the P5 and they are 16" with 195/50 tires on them.

Potholes will do that.

But I digress, I think that ad is a joke. Look at the weight of the rim. I don't think they are serious.

Also if you notice, those are BBS whells that have the badges taken of the center caps. They even kept the same model name (SL and CH)

Guys, scroll to the bottom of the page and read what it says in the grey type.

mrgokou

It's all right man, I believed it for a second too.


Plus, if you look at the URL, the last part says "wheel_ha.htm"

Sia Bani
HAHA, :banghead:

It really wasn't that far fetched, so we shouldn't feel stupid.

I hate it when someone thinks they "psyched you out" when they tell you something totally believable, but it's a lie.

Like, "hey, I went to wal-mart today."

Ha Ha, I was just lying, you're so gullible.

Sia Bani
Haha, that's just retarded TA!

silverTA2002
yes, yes it is.

And I really did go to wal-mart today. Ha ha, you believed me, then you didn't.


Oh wait, now I'm confused. I can't remember if I did or didn't. Oh well.

Metal that doesn't bend.

Nice try.

lsr78
Actually, you can have metal that pretty much won't bend. But then it will break and that is even worse.

911GT2
That's moreso based on how it's formed. Like die cast metal is much more likely to crack than forged metal, but forged metal will bend.

They never said it won't bend, just that it's guaranteed not to.

"guaranteed fun or your money back" doesn't mean it's impossible to not have fun.

That would suck if you hit a pothole in your $22,000 set of wheels, and they shattered. :banghead:

We didn't say they couldn't shatter.

i guess the 82 lb/wheel didn't set off many other red flags did it :headscrat
