I ordered a set of Enkei RPF1 18x9.5 & 18x10.5 +15 on April 27th. When I placed the order I was told the 10.5's were back order till the end of May. When end of May came and went I contacted Enkei myself. I was told that the RPF1 was a popular wheel and they weren't expecting the mass orders they received. I was told that they should have a new order mid June. Mid June I came home to two (2) RPF1's sitting at my door, the 10.5's. I contacted Enkei and was told they didn't receive 9.5's for me. I contacted Gruppe-S and was told Enkei has them back-ordered, again. This was confusing for me since Oakos Automotive had received several pallets of RPF1 wheels. To include several sets of the same size & offset I ordered from Gruppe-S. I contacted Gruppe-S again and was told expecting them mid July. I contacted Gruppe-S via e-mail this past Friday and received that the 9.5's were backed ordered till end of August. Now I'm pissed. I called Gruppe-S to cancel the rest of the order. I was told there would be a cancelation fee. After arguing a bit I received a call stating I would get a full refund for the cost of the 9.5's in 24hrs. I have received the refund.

This isn't the first problem I've had with Gruppe-S but it is the last time Iwill ever deal with them.

That sucks. How hard is it for a vendor to push an order through and get stuff when others are getting the same product? Sorry to hear about that, Robert. I guess you'll have to find the wheels another way. Are you still going to get them?

Sold the rears this past week. Trying to sell the Nitto NT-01's. I've been having some boost problems since MSR/Texas Z Party/Track Day. Taking the Z Monday to have it looked at and possibly gonna swap the UTEC for the HalTech. So the RPF1's are on hold.

Where or who will be doing the diagnosis? SGP? I hope that HalTech works out.

SGP is no more. Taking it to a former SGP Tech, OverDrive in Conroe.

Not your fault. Just sucks that I've have so many problems with them.

Oh well... Guess it kinda worked in my favor to hopefully pick up a HalTech.
